    I was sooo hoping to meet someone whose name I recognized at Celebration II. Ran into a lot of spoiler hounds from the force.net though. Overall, lines excluded, a great time! I took lots of pics, but I have no idea how to get them on here :_|

    THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH for posting the Lego Yoda!!!!! I got caught at the archives and then there was no way I was getting out of line for the final "Spectacular" showing of the weekend, I wanted so badly to see the Yoda all finished. Thank you for letting me get in one more thing this weekend, even if it is only virtually!!

    I started a photograph thread two days before this one, but mine was not "offical," I guess.

    I posted pictures every night at: http://www.webwidget.org.

    Anyone not having a place to post their pictures are welcome to e-mail me. I'll give you full credit, of course.

    And those of you who asked for copies, contact me and I'll get them to you!

    I'm not sure which calendar you're using, but this thread was started on May 1st, yours was started on May 4th. It's neither here nor there.

    I should have the rest of my pictures up shortly.

    My apologies. I didn't see any photograph thread when I posted on Friday night, so I added mine.

    I'm slowly....(very, very slowly....) getting my pics uploaded. No captions or anything so far, and what I've got is pretty boring, but here they are:

    I'm curious, did anyone get any clear pictures of the Q&A's with the actors/crew on the main stage?

    Every picture that I took that was in a main ballroom was EXTREMELY distorted (very blurred and ghosted with an extreme red/yellow color cast).
    The photos that I took in other areas (Archives, signing area, etc) were fine, but every picture taken in the main ballrooms upstairs and downstairs looked like crap!
    Was there something about the stage lights or the DLP setup that caused this?

    I'm not a pro photographer ( but I have the basic skills down :) ), but I have taken photos under many different kinds of conditions and have never had this kind of thing occur.

    If LFL and WOTC did do something to "distort" the photos (via lighting, etc.), then I wished I would have been warned because I spent $50 on photos and only have about $30 worth of good ones!

    They should have just stated NO PHOTOS WHATSOEVER, then I wouldn't of wasted my money on something that never would develop!

    Tech notes: I was using 400 (and a couple of 200 (accidently) and 800) speed film in my camera's night mode with no flash and a 70 to 300 mm zoom lens. I have about 4 acceptable photos, but the majority were useless.

    Whoa, it's a conspiracy, Roswell style. The same thing happened to me. Almost every picture I took in the Sagamore Ballroom without a flash was blurred.

    You could just say those were force waves emmitting from the different people. No really I got the same on about 90% of the pictures I took with my digital camera in those rooms. The rest of them came out fine. I put some up but they have no captions or anything and I want to have it somewhat finished before I make it public. Anyone with a photography background explain this?

    My photos turned out lousy also. Here's a question. How about some post-celebration materials?

    If the FanClub were to offer a book with some closeup shots of the stage for each event would you buy it? This could include some dialog also. Shots of the archives, as well as some fan photos.
    Would you buy it?

    Would you like to bring Anthony Daniels home with you? If a dvd were offered showing some of the event highlights, would you buy it?

    Does anybody else besides me want an 8x10 of that wonderful mass photo of the 501st?

    Any demand for this? Wizards, are you listening? This could be an opportunity for you. Anybody want to volunteer to create a poll for this?

    A video/DVD documentary of the event WAS discussed early during the planning stages of C2. But it won't happen for several reasons, the biggest of which were legal "clearance" issues that LFL didn't want to have to deal with.

    I got some great pics of the Empire Strikes Back and of Billy Dee Williams. I was 2nd row for empire and first for Billy. I also shot a touch of video with my Digital Camera. Most of my pics turned out fairly good in all the ballrooms but there were a lot that were also blurry because of the distance and trying to zoom. A lot of the costume contest were that way till hubby got right up to the stage at the end. My pics are up on my site now :)

    I have updated my Plo Koon pics with saber FX, and I would be happy to do that for anyone else. Lady Maul let me do her pics as well. Sabers, Force Lightning, anything you want, Im working on a video where the Count Dooku that showed up will blast Force lightning at a jedi or two.

    Punisher, you didn't state what type of camera you were using. BUT, since you stated you were using a nice zoom lens I assume you were using a fairly nice quality SLR camera. I also assume you were NOT using a tripod.

    Were you using an autoexposure mode on your camera? If so, does your camera indicate to you the exposure time of the shot before you take it? In my experience (as a purely amateur photography buff) any pics taken with exposures of 1/15 second or less are likely to blur if the camera is handheld. This is also something that happens quite a bit to folks with digital cameras. Many of them take a LONG time to capture their images, and it is pretty well known that no one stands still enough not to blur a picture on a long exposure.

    I myself was using a Pentax SF1, one of the first of the autofocus cameras years back. I only have a 35-135 zoom. :( When I took pics in those dark rooms, if the exposures were coming out short, I stopped down the camera (underexposures can later be fixed easier than overexposures). I figure that if they come out at all, I'll get any reprints fixed by the photo lab.

    I won't have any to show for a while yet. I sent my film off to a mail order firm, b/c I couldn't afford processing all of that film at the usual commercial price. I'll post a link as soon as possible when I get them back.
