Pretty sure I didn't post these before.  I've no idea what they are doing.  I only know it is from the breakfast.

Cleaned this one up a bit.  Was posted before.

Here are some Jensen photos I took at the J2 Breakfast at Burcon 2012 - re-edited as the originals were either off color or too dark, or I just felt like playing with them.   I believe that most of these have been published before.

To see more Burcon photos, go here.  





above :: I believe this shot is when Jensen spotted that Jared had arrived at the breakfast.  Jared was late due to a car mix up and Jensen was winging it without his wingman (heh) until Jared showed up.

Today I discovered these additional Jensen photos that I took at the J2 Breakfast at Burcon 2012.   I'm 90% convinced I haven't posted most, if not all of these previously.   I've been developing a workflow process for developing photos and based on my process, these photos likely were not included previously in any postings (but there might be some exceptions.)   These were likely excluded due to lack of focus, color balance (yikes! on some of these, which I still couldn't really fix), and/or I had others that were similar but better, or just too many photos in general.

In any case, these have been re-editted and gave me about an hour of pleasure today (along with another set I will be posting in a few moments.  The next set are definitely photos I think I've published before, but re-editted for better quality.)

For other photos from Burcon see here.

Some more photo possibilities for autographs at Vancon.   

Photobucket

above :: this one is from a series of shots I took at Burcon (see all of this series here).  I loved Jensen's teasing of Jared so decided to try to depict it by using a comic-book type format.   The quote is actually from Kim Manners, but has also been referenced by the boys both about their friendship and the camraderie on set.   "We spend way too much time together not to enjoy each others' company."  


Photobucket

above :: fickleone and I decided we were kinda "over" having something for each individual person to sign.   So I came up with an 8x10 that we can have everyone (except the Js) sign.  The quotes are mostly Sam & Dean quotes - mostly from season 1.   I purposefully used a season 1 promo shot with more recent screen shots of the various characters.  I was thinking it was something like a "Then" and "Now" type of thing.


Photobucket

above (and directly below) :: I couldn't help it.  I haven't yet seen Mark P or Julian (assuming he doesn't cancel.)   So I went ahead and added to my Heaven and Hell autograph series.   I'll decide when I get to the con what I will have them sign.

above :: *sigh* I cannot tell you how much trouble I had with the color in this image above when I printed.   So not kidding.   Plus I really cannot decide how much I like this.  So it goes in the pile of "maybe I'll have Jensen sign this."  I'll decide later.  Likely at the last minute.

A couple of months ago I posted here that I wanted to try to use some of my own photos at Vancon for autographs.   This is a first for me.   I've always shied away from doing this because I feel like I could never find a good enough photo (let along more than one) and it just felt weird to me to have anyone sign something that was "them" rather than the characters they portrayed.   (Yeah, like going to cons in the first place isn't a little bit weird.  I didn't say it made sense.  Ha!)

When I posted, I had one (count 'em, "1") photo that I kinda liked good enough for an autograph possibility.   The last few days I've been pouring through photos from all six conventions I've been to.  Even from the first LA Con where I was using an old point-and-shoot camera.   I was able to pull out about 5-10 photos from each con that I thought I might be able to do with.   I toyed with the idea of doing a con retrospective, having one photo with an image of the guys from each con I've been too.   But I couldn't come up with something I liked enought.   

But the good news is that the whole exercise really helped me narrow down all the thousands of con photos I had to a dozen each con that I really liked.   I may do something with those.  Perhaps between Vancon and Vegas.

In the meantime, I have two more photos of Jensen from Burcon that I'm adding to my favorites list.  I'm printing these out as well and bringing them along to Vancon with the possibility that I might have him sign one.

Edit:   Btw, these versions have the red de-saturated a bit due to the crap-tastic photo printer I use at Kinkos.   Yeah, the printer likely isn't really that bad.  Let's just say that there is something about the color profile for that printer that does not match well with my Mac's color profile.   And all photos print out more red or more orange than they should be.   I was so frustrated this afternoon printing.   My son was along with me and man oh man did I want to salt and burn that printer.   Since I'm printing these two tomorrow, I purposefully desaturated the reds & yellows so that I (hopefully) would only be printing them once.   Usually I have an online image and a print image, but I do not have the patience to deal with that right now.  :/

My creative-foo has returned somewhat (thank goodness).  

I'm determined to FINALLY use some of my own photos for folks to sign at Vancon.   All these years and I've never done that.   I've never had the Js sign anything that is Jared or Jensen.  I've always used only Sam or Dean.   Part of it is that I can never find a photo I'd want them to sign.   The other part is that I just feel a bit weirded out by the idea of them signing something of "themselves" (if that even makes any sense at all.)

So I'm playing.  I've got about 2 months to figure it out.

Here's one of my photos of Jensen from BurCon that I'm considering.   He's not smiling.  But he is gorgeous in it.  Two different versions of it.  The original, uncropped one, which would likely print up higher res.   Add a cropped version which might be too small for quality.  Also not sure about logo placement at this point.   Plus I may decide to do an image with a combination of my photos.   Don't know yet.

Random side comment - damn, but this man is unreal.

Edits below - warmed them up a bit.  I have this weird bias toward blue-ish tint (above).   Not sure I'm happy with more golden/orange-ish.   Except for maybe in his hair.  Will likely tweek more.  (or move onto a different image.)

In honor of last night's episode ... 

During the "Fan Favorites" panel at BurCon Rick surprised everyone by answering a question from a fan ... with a kiss!  

He did it ala Alpha Vamp - with first gesturing "come hither" and then slowly leaning in a giving this girl a very real kiss.   The audience went nuts of course.  Richard was even a bit floored by it. 

;o)

And here is the lovely[livejournal.com profile] therickgirl ....

Madison was such a composed person on that stage.  I was amazed.  I think she was more composed than a lot of the adults who appear at these cons.  I believe she is 16.  Again, amazing.   And the camera loves her.   :)

I posted some of these photos before but they were way too dark.  These are brightened up quite a bit.  

At the end of the J2 Panel, Richard walked down the aisle with a lit birthday cake for Jensen's birthday, which was on March 1st.  Richard (who ended up MC'ing a few panels over the weekend and made them hilarious), sets the cake down at the back of the stage and then goes into a spiel about Jensen's birthday.   I was so focused on Jensen that I didn't take the opportunity to try to get Jared in the frame while Richard was talking about Jensen's birthday.  Jared had walked over the to the far side of the stage and he was barely in my view.  Here you can see him looking on as Richard talks about Jensen's birthday.  

Richard cracks some joke about the cake - saying he misspelled Jensen's name as "Jendersen".  Then, ever the take charge person, Richard instructs Jared to pick up the cake to carry it over to show the audience what was written on the cake.  Jared crouches down and tips the cake to the audience as Jensen looks on.

Then Jensen looks on while Richard starts to lead the audience in signing happy birthday to him.   Jensen pulls out his cell phone.  Turns around and snaps a photo of the audience singing to him.  He then prepares to blow out the candles.  Is he making a wish in the next few shots?

Jensen decides to sample the cake - in a very direct manner-by sticking his face in it!  =D   Jared, Richard, and all the rest of us crack up.  Richard then instructs Jared to follow Jensen's lead.   You can see that Jared is going "you've got to be kidding me?" in his head.  Afterwards you can see Jared looking over at Jensen with a piece of the cake glued to his chin with frosting!  In my mind, Jared's going WTF dude?!   :D  LOL

Since it's been so long I wanted to check on the interest for zip files.  And if there is interest - is it for the J photos only (mostly?)

I'm willing to upload zips, I just find it a bit of work and don't want to do it if there's no interest.

Also, in these most-MU times, any suggestions on where to upload these days?

I started this series for Vancon 2009 and have added to it for each succeeding con.  I had a previous autograph series from Chicon 2008 & LA 2009, but wanted something different.

I love the background for this series.  However, now that the Heaven & Hell myth arch is (mostly) done, I may have to find something else for the next set of cons.  I've got something in mind that I may play with.

These are all the unsigned versions.  Some are better than others.   In the original set I wasn't as good at finding high-res images of the actors.   So the quality suffered.  Plus my PS skills has gotten a little better in the past year or so.   I've gotten all but a few of these signed.

I haven't yet scanned the signed versions of these, but am posting the originals for now.  Will add in auto stories on the signed versions.

I created auto photos in my Heaven & Hell series for the guests I had not yet had sign one of these.  To see the full series go here.
