Still going through old Vancon photos.

These are from the first Vancon in August 2009.   I was too exhausted when we returned and after I'd posted all the panel photos, so I abandoned these for the most part.   

They turned out to be perfect items to try some HDR tricks on.  And I LOVE how they turned out.

How is it that these boys can make me smile even when I don't really feel like doing so?

Wanted to cheer myself up a bit--so I took one of my more in focus Jensen panel photos from Vancon and played around (heh) with it.

Not going to go overboard like yesterday (I think)--after this I think I'll do what I originally planned for yesterday--watch some old SPN episodes.



ETA:  Yeah I know I just can't stop.  If I had the energy I'd break out my drawing pad...

Vancon 2009 :: J2 Panel Remixes
Master Post
(link to my Vancon 2009 Master Post here)

I went through my rejected photos from the J2 Panel at Vancon 2009. I was amazed at how many I could salvage with some photoshop tricks. There are 107 altogether so I'm posting them in 4 batches.

These tend to be in chronological order during the J2 panel.  But there may be a few out of sequence.  These were all images that were either too out of focus, had lighting issues, were too repetitive with other photos I was using, and/or had some other problem.  That's why there are various filters applied to the photos--to make them "usable."

Seriously? I know I've said this before. But what IS it about Jared? I'm supposed to be a Jensen girl for crying out loud. But it seems like every time I start going through my convention photos to "play" it's always the Jared photos that just grab me.

Don't get me wrong I still really really like/love Jensen. (Maybe I should have said Jensen girls don't get mad at me.) But I swear Jared just mesmerizes me.

I didn't even think he was that attractive when I first saw him in S1 of SPN. (That's what I meant by asking the Jared girls not to hate me.) He was gangly and kinda funny looking. And I was SO not into his mile-high forehead and weird widows peak that showed up in his younger photos when he had short hair. His nose was a funny shape too.

But it's exactly all those features that have me now intranced. I love his forehead and really, really love his uniquely shaped nose. And I swear how I ever missed how sparkly gorgeous his eyes are, I'll never understand.

I mean look ::::::


Another never-posted Vancon photo saved by wonderful photoshop.  I mean seriously...just LOOK at that face.  And there's that mile-high forehead that I'm now in love with.

(Oh and I really WILL be getting to Jensen.  I just seem to be stuck (heh) on Jared right now.  And I'm really trying to stop myself from piecemeal posting this stuff, but when I see Jared looking like this...I just can't stop myself.)

Ugh. Because I slept basically ALL day yesterday, I could NOT fall asleep last night until around 4am. *headdesk* So I'm just now waking up. Haven't had my coffee yet and it's almost 12:30!

Ugh, ugh, ugh.

Plus I have an appointment today that I am NOT looking forward to.

To cheer ME up....here's some Jared...who always cheers me up.

A remixed Vancon 2009 J2 Panel photo.  I really loved Jared's sunglass headband.

  I'm so impatient. I get done with just a few of these and all I want to do is post them. I'll have to link them altogether when I'm done. In the meantime, here's a link to the first Vancon 2009 Remix post.

(I really do need to go to bed--got RL stuff to do tomorrow--darnit.)

Instead of rewatching some SPN episodes I ended up playing with some Photoshop filters tonight. I pulled up some of my Vancon 2009 J2 Breakfast photos--some I used and posted, others that I set aside because I wasn't so happy with them at the time.

I'm having so much fun "remixing" these.

Here are a few samples.

(first off I've gotten NOTHING done I was planning to today because I've been so absorbed in LJ land today. but not the point of this post..)

I really appreciate being spoiler free because I've found I enjoy episodes that much more for being surprised.

But when I see something like this...



I just sit there, stare, and resist temptation while all the while thinking...but I wanna know TOO! (dammit.)  :-)



And omg..how is it actually already 4pm????


(Oh--but the good news about being 4pm is that it's that much closer to 9pm!!)

Dbl Oh! I just realized that screen shot I just put above may have an icon from one of my Vancon photos. It might also be someone elses, but the angle is more like the shots I took. I always get such a kick and a little thrill when I recognize my photos being used somewhere. Makes me smile!

Yup! I think it's from this photo from Vancon.



I'm feeling hyper--perhaps it's from watching Vitamin D, the recent ep of Glee!  ;-)

(75) Ha!  Looks like Jensen's doing "I'm a little teapot!" and Jared's cracking up about it.  (That's not what happened of course.)


(76) a closer look


(77)


(78) closer look at #77


(79) closer crop of Jensen from that photo


(80) and still closer


(81) slightly different tone  (seriously, double/triple click on this one.  I love the effect of this filter)


(82) again, I'm not his mother, don't ASK me what's going on with his face!


(83) but it is kinda adokable


(84) oh no wait!  THIS face is more adorkable.  What do you think he's thinking of?  Discuss. 

Should this be a "caption this photo" photo?


(85) Where as Jensen has his SERIOUS DEAN face on while Jared is exposing his tongue...


(86) but his Dean face is very pretty.  and obviously VERY SRSY BizNess.


(87) Dean's gone...Jensen's back.  But Sam has taken over Jared.


(88) closer crop on Jensen


(89) cute!


(90) closer to the cute


(91) Jensen is showing the Ghostfacers photo here.


(92) the aftermath of reading the Ghostfacer's card.


(93) no explanation needed


(94) "He did it!"


(95)  "He really, really DID do it!" he says very sincerely.


(96) close up of Jared from #95  Sunglass!porn! ahoy!


(97) love this.


(98) One of Jared's "I'm looking at Jensen" looks.


(99) and he's paying with his boots at the same time.


(100) arms....guh...


(101) closer to the...guh

are you CLICKING on the GUH??!  Huh?  Go ahead...I'll wait  

*whistles*

You done?  Okay, moving on.  (sorry it's very, very late at night here--I'm punch drunk, my sleep cycle is seriously messed up.)


(102)


(103) closer look at #102


(104) and another crop of same


(105) Jared's looking at Jensen again (same photo)


(106) "I TOLD you!  HE did it!"


(107) closer crop.  and a closer look at "the watch" and Jensen's arm jewelry (and ... um ... hands/arms/whatever)


(108) I love the look in Jared's expression here (closer crop)


(109) and a closer look at Jensen's expression.  (are you triple clicking on some of these?  you should be.)


(110) closer

so I lied.  I thought there were 107 photos.  there were 110.  oops! 

that's all folks!  I hope to do some remixes on some of my original photos next

(oh!  and if you haven't seen my original J2 Panel post, it's here.)

(43)


(44) closer crop of #43


(45) closer crop on Jensen


(46)  NO IDEA about Jared's expression...


(47) but you can tell I liked it...


(48) plus it had sunglasses too!


(49)


(50) I loved when the background lights were purple.


(51) closer crop


(52) This photo is very blurry, but with some filter work I was able to "save" it.  I loved Jared's expression.  Funny--Dean is the expressive one on the show--but in RL, seems Jared's face is always in motion and Jensen keeps his expressions under control.


(53)  The point where Jared starts to move his chair closer to Jensen.


(54) couldn't resist.


(55)


(56) smirk


(57) close up of smirk (despite blurriness)


(58) Okay so I don't know HOW I missed this one in my original postings.  It's pretty in focus and so the filter work below turned out great!


(59) more of #58


(60) and still more (slightly different tones)


(61) close up of #58


(62) can you tell I liked #58?


(63) um...more of #58


(64)


(65) close up of #64


(66) hand to heart--love this.


(67) close up of Jensen's expression during hand-to-heart


(68) it was at this point that I thought I was wrong and that I had already used some of these photos.  But nope.  Just used on very similar before that was slightly more in focus.


(69) closer crop


(70) and still closer on Jensen.


(71) and closer.  can you get too close to Jensen?  *rhetorical question*


(72) closer and more filters just cause I like the "painted" look


(73) different photo--same timeframe.

(22) hand!


(23) closer hand!


(24) The purple lights were really reflecting on Jared in this one.


(25) a closer look


(26) and still closer


(27) laughing!


(28) closer


(29) looking at Jensen while Jensen's answering a question.


(30) same question--different photo.


(31) same question--SAME photo--closer crop.


(32) ok, a still closer crop.  I mean ... eyes ... sunglasses...couldn't help myself.


(33) Jensen answering whatever question this was.


(34) can't remember the context here unfortunately.


(35) but I liked Jared's expression.


(36) as you can see...


(37)


(38) No idea why it looks like Jensen is pensive here.  I think Jared is answering a question and Jensen's probably tuning out for a moment.


(39) but he's very pretty when tuned out/pensive/whatever...


(40) I kept cropping closer...


(41) ... until I got here.  Isn't there some kind of painting/statue of the Mother Mary looking like this somewhere?


(42) I guess Jensen woke up.

(1)  Jared comes on stage for the J2 Panel.  I believe he's squinting at something off in the distance.  When I was going through my photos again, I noticed him doing this alot.  Makes me wonder if the guy needs glasses/contacts, but chooses not to wear them.


(2) close up of the photo above.


(3) and yet closer.  I have this thing for the sunglasses Jared was wearing that day.  I'm thinking I might do some kind of photo montage of them.


(4) No idea about the toothpick.


(5) A closer crop.


(6)


(7) Closer crop of #6.


(8) and yet another crop.  (Yes I did this a lot--sue me.)


(9) different crop.


(10)  I love this shot of Jared.  I'm glad I was able to figure out how to use it.


(11) closer.


(12) and still closer


(13)


(14) A crop of Jared from #13 above.


(15) and a closer crop


(16) And a closer crop of Jensen from that photo.  I was sitting off to the far right side of the stage.  It had the one benefit of making the boys appear to be sitting closer--even before they moved their chairs closer.  But I had to choose which boy to focus on.  It seems I tended to focus more on Jared bizarrely thinking that if I focused on the guy farthest away, then of course the guy in front would be in focus (WTH?? me?)


(17)  But I sometimes did luck out and get both boys close enough in focus that with some filters I could "make it work." 


(18) a closer crop of #17


(19) and again with the close up of Jared's sunglasses


(20)  This was my favorite photo of Jared at the con.  So it's not one my rejects.  I loved what some photoshop filters did to further enhance the photo.


(21)  And a close up of those eyes and sunglasses.

Uploaded by Misha on Sep 9, 2009





This photo that I took of Misha's panel at Vancon (posted here) was actually tweeted once before by Superwiki.  But I was told this morning via [livejournal.com profile] healingmachine (thanks!) that Misha just used it in one of his tweets.  (Of course it WOULD be one of the most under-exposed photos of the group!  But at least I got it!)

I don't know whether to be nervous or excited...maybe I'll just be both...

I really, really do love Gabe. 

Gabe got to be my guinea pig for testing/using my new camera lens in the main conference room.  So a lot of the photos of him were test shots.  Plus since he was first I did post something early on during the con for him.  But then left for last all the other photos I took of him.  (Well almost last--I do have some Steve photos still to post.)

I just updated my original post on Gabe's panel with more photos.  If you are interested--you can find the post here.

Vancon 2009
Aldis' Panel

(link to Vancon 2009 Master Post)
 

Aldis' was wonderful--just as he was in LA. He started out by asking the audience to call out a greeting to his girlfriend. He called up her voicemail and had us shout to record a message. He ended the panel the same way he did in LA, but taking photos of the audience.

Vancon 2009
Jake's Panel

(link to Vancon 2009 Master Post)
 

I enjoyed Jake's panel a lot. I had no expectations about it at all. He was very entertaining. Very composed and self-assured.

When I checked the photos on Saturday night of Jake's Panel, I was not very happy with them. Which is partially why it's taken me so long to post them. When I went through them this morning, I was pleased to find I was more okay with them than I'd originally thought. I'd really thought only a few were okay enough to use.

Here are a couple of shots of the audience.



Above:  This one is taken by Traci from the stage.  It shows the left half of the audience.  You can see me and my camera and where I was positioned relative to the stage.



Above:  I forgot to note where I got this photo, so if you know who took it, please let me know so I can credit.  This is of the J2 Breakfast.

Head on over to [personal profile] dramaa_princess for a great picspam of Vancon.  I love how she put this together.  With icons too!

I can't figure out my favorites from this picspam.  Too many good things to pick from.
 
 





growyourwings: (Default)
This is by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] raloria . She's in the process of posting all her Vancon photos now. You should check them out.

I love this shot of hers of Traci from here.


Traci is just gorgeous in this shot.   (credit to [livejournal.com profile] raloria )

Hey, tell me if I'm wrong. I noticed the necklace she was wearing. Is it the same as the one she wore in Lazarus Rising? I think it may be. Here's an image of her from when she first greets Bobby and boys at her house.



Same necklace?  Yes?  No?
