A name for my camera

Friday, July 20th, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Googles “Fictional photographers”

There are the names I recognize

  • Crow
  • Alexandra DeWitt
  • Jade
  • Jimmy Olsen
  • Ben Reilly
  • Spider-Man
  • Donna Troy
  • Vicki Vale

Sorted by category and explained


  • Alexandra DeWitt – ex-girlfriend of Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern. Killed by Major Force an controversially stuffed in a refrigerator
  • Jade – ex-girlfriend of Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern. Killed and then resurrected. Currently missing in The New 52!
  • Jimmy Olsen – Superman’s pal.
  • Donna Troy – ex-girlfriend of Kyle Rayner. Member of the original Teen Titans. Wonder Woman’s protege. Currently missing in The New 52!
  • Vicki Vale – some Batman character I don’t really know much about

WTF. How come there are so many ex-girlfriends of Kyle Rayner?!?!


  • Ben Reilly – Peter Parker clone. Died fighting the Green Goblin.
  • Spider-Man – Peter Parker. Photographer for the Daily Bugle.

So. Of these lists, my favorite (female) character here is Donna Troy.
She was Kyle Rayner’s girlfriend when I first started reading Green Lantern. She’s also a great friend of Dick Grayon, Nightwing and Wally West, Flash. She’s gone by many names, Wonder Girl, Darkstar, Troia, Wonder Woman. I don’t really like the name Donna though…

Maybe I’ll call my camera Darkstar…(not confirmed).

Darkness is the enemy…

…in photography.

Seriously, a lack of light can make or break a great photo.

I was just looking at some of my old files/photos, before my DSLR Camera (which still needs a name btw…I wanna call it “Parker” after photographer Peter Parker but I’d prefer to call it a girl’s name). Oops, side tracked. My old photos are either lacking light or maybe the camera sucked so bad it didn’t let enough light…I don’t really know. But the photos are bad. I’ll post some later (it’s 2:30 am right now, I really should sleep).

Anyways, while my Saturday is busy, Friday night and Sunday is pretty free. I hope to post some small galleries to show what I’ve been up to.

I’m pretty excited…this is really really fun stuff, though super time consuming. I’m really enjoying myself :)

I can’t wait to show you how far I’ve come :)

TO DO: Secret Project KB

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012 at 10:45 am


I purchased the domain for this site on Oct 18, 2011. I had the idea/passion to make this site about 9 months ago…but could only do it when was finished, a project that took…..much longer than it should have.

I think around the end of May, I finished…so I’ve had a month and a half of having this project as my focus. To be honest, it’s coming a lot slower than I expected. Here’s my checklist of things I’ve done

  • buying the domain
  • designing the basic layout
  • developing the basic functionality
  • pouring in content
  • fix the search and make it look nicer
  • create a logo
  • pour more content into the blog
  • go to various sites and look up prices for each statue (time consuming and tedious)
  • buy a camera
    • learn how to use the camera to take professional shots (time consuming)
    • take pictures of all the statues (super time consuming)
    • create a gallery for each figure

Overall, it’s a bit overwhelming how much work is involved, not to mention the maintenance of it all. I need to be on top of kotobukiya bishoujo information! It’s harder than I thought it would be.

Anyways, there’s still a long way to go. I’m working on tons of things all the time, like learning about photography…for the site.

ETA on completion: who knows :/

Anyways, I just wanted to write about this project as it’s now the focus of my free time. This is to help me stay organized :) I feel better when I’m organized!

DSLR Example – Wonder Woman

I’m in the process of doing 16 angle shots of each of my bishoujo characters for my site.

This was taken by me O_O. It looks so professional…though not as professional as it could :/

Here’s an example. Click for a larger image (Warning, the larger image is 4.89 MB).

Hmmm, as I compare this image with some professional images, I notice the color is off on my character. Not sure why. I’ll have to investigate.


This one is truer to the real still doesn’t look right though!

I’ve seen Wicked already but I’m bringing my brother and his wife…
I think they’ll like it.

I think I’m least excited for the How to Train Your Dragon one…I’m not sure what they’re going to do with it.

I’m pretty excited for the Zelda one but I still need to play/beat a couple of games…there’s definitely gonna be some music I don’t know/recognize, I don’t like that.
