In two days’ time I’ll be in one of my favorite cities (shout out Chi-Town), having a great time with my sister at our second Supernatural convention. Despite my love for photography and my desire to do more from behind the lens, I’ve made the decision to not take my Canon D3200. Here’s why.
This may be the last Supernatural convention I attend for a while, if not ever. It wasn’t an easy decision, especially considering it’s something my sister and I do together, but the tickets are just getting too expensive. There are other cons I want to go to and trips we want to take. A pick and choose call had to be made.
That being said, last year I was determined to capture as many moments as I could, and I did get some great shots of which I’m incredibly proud. But the Supernatural cons are so unique that I want to be completely in the moment this time around. I don’t want these new memories to be what I saw through the viewfinder. I want to relish every second, every detail, as I don’t know when I’ll be able to make it back.
I have no doubt that the second time around will just as fun, just as wonderful as the first. I’m so excited to feel that unmistakable thrill in the convention hall, to get caught up in the emotion during the Saturday Night Special, to see some of my favorite actors (and hug quite a few of them, yay!) again, and to talk to fellow fans (2016 goals, I haven’t forgotten about you). I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to be able to attend and I plan on making every minute count.
