Sakura Flow

Sakura Flow || Lightroom Only

I’ve taken many different images of sakura (cherry blossoms), from all sorts of angles and at various focal lengths, but there has been photo I’ve wanted to take for a while that I’ve had a hard time getting. Thankfully, while visiting Aomori Prefecture for a photography project recently, I found the perfect place to finally get this photo, which you can see below. The photo was taken in a section of the moat around the...

Photos From My 2016 Autumn In Tokyo Workshop

This past Friday I held my 2016 Autumn in Tokyo workshop. My photography workshops are small – there were 3 participants for this one – which gives me the opportunity to talk to and give attention to people as needed. It also helps keep us all together, which is useful in Tokyo, especially during the crowded autumn season! During this afternoon workshop we went to some great locations in Tokyo for autumn colors. Our first...
