Great battles are fought and won each day as the adventurers of Eorzea grow stronger. Crafters can be seen everywhere in the world, gatherers and hunters roam the wild lands. There are many jobs in Eorzea for an adventurer to do. Some are obvious, and some must come with imagination.
During the creation of my newsletter posts, and as I learned more, I decided to try to help more with pictures and member interviews. I always notice that during the heat and rush of battle, little is noticed about the features and personality of the characters behind the flashy skills and spells. I set out on a quest to show the souls of the great people joining our Chaos Theory family. With my assistant and future Eorzean husband Lenus Liore, we took up a new role as photographers, and with these great pictures, I began the process of capturing a personality in a banner. I felt as if I knew them so much better than before, and the photo shoots were so much fun.
When Lenus and I began our photography banner meetings with others, we did not expect such a great reaction. Each time we met with someone, we got a bit better at working out and learning the best ways to take pictures of these beautifully made characters. Soon we began to upgrade, and added new tools to our meetings (kept secret to surprise those new to our photo shoots). Some people were open and expressive on the camera, as 50 pictures flooded through. It was so difficult to pick only a few to work with. Some were very camera shy, and it was fun seeing them begin to enjoy themselves a bit more as time passed.
In the end many of our Chaos Theory members were successfully captured on film, and turned into signatures to be featured in this Winter Edition. We enjoyed doing this so much that we have decided to continue it when we can. A website will be launched to sign up for appointments for a photo shoot, and our new members that take the time to fill out the new member interview will be treated to special banners, showcasing their characters.
Please look forward to the Signature Shop website, and we will look forward to seeing all of you on film. In the meantime, feel free to send us a tell in Eorzea, or moogle mail if you are on our friend list, to request a photo shoot.
Smile for the camera!
