Sunset at The Yasaka Pagoda In Kyoto

One of the main places I wanted to visit and photography during my recent trip to Kyoto was the Kiyomizu Temple. I was able to go but unfortunately the grounds close at 6pm, which is far too early during the warmer months to capture the sunset, as was my goal. I took what photos I...

  • David LaSpinaNice tutorial. I go through phases with my usage of split-toning. For a month I’ll use it on all my images, then I won’t touch it for a few months. Come to thing of it, I treat a lot of photo tools this way (HDR, textures, etc)

    Lovely photo too. I love Kyoto and when I first arrived in Japan I went there every few months (it’s only a 30 minute trip from Okazaki via shinkansen). At this point I haven’t visited in several years… I feel the urge to go there again when I see photos like this.ReplyCancel

    • leslieThanks! I love using split toning … I use it in some form in a large portion of my photos. I’ve sort of got a basic workflow I go through for most of my professional photos now, though it depends on the photo as to what I may or may not use of course. As for Kyoto, I loved it. The last time I went my photography skills were lacking at best, so it was a lot of fun this time to get to shoot it and feel like I could produce something worth sharing! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Day’s End At Ninenzaka Kyoto » Les Taylor Photo[…] location to enjoy the atmosphere of years gone by. It’s also right next door to the famous view of the Yasaka Pagoda – if you walk maybe 20 steps behind where I took this photo, you can see that view – […]ReplyCancel

On my first morning during my trip to Kyoto, I had planned to start shooting for the digital workshop I’m currently working on. Unfortunately, the forecast called for rain, which meant my morning plans were not to be. Thankfully, I had planned out my trip pretty well so I had some places I could check...

    Highashiyama Gion in Kyoto

    If you follow me on any of my various social media outlets, you’ll know that I was in Kyoto this past week. The main reason I went is to start filming for a digital workshop that I’m planning to release later this year. But one does not simply go to Kyoto to film part of...

      When No One Else Would

      One of the questions I am frequently asked (right after, “what camera do you use?”) is: “how did you get that photo?” There are a lot of ways to answer this question, but the most fundamental answer is simple: go when no one else would, and you’ll see what no one else will. When it...

        Japan’s Hidden Gems: Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter

        Many travelers to Japan take trips to popular destinations like Tokyo and Kyoto, and not without reason – these areas boast some of the most beautiful and easily accessed locations in the country. Some feel that popular places are not worth visiting and photographing since they’ve already been photographed repeatedly, but I would not agree...
