Anaheim Comic Con

May 1, 2011

This weekend is the Anahaim Comic Con – a convention of Sci Fi, comic and fantasy fans, artists and producers. I went there to shoot yesterday, and it was a pretty amazing experience. Overweight batmans posing for pictures with kids, tired Dumbledores in a coffee shop, baby Supermans with their parents – you name it, the Comic Con has it. Here are some of my selects from the day. As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts!
