Photo of Tokyo Skyscrapers

City In The Sky

I took this down in Shinjuku a week or so ago. I didn’t really intend to take any photos of the buildings, but as I was walking by and saw this scene I decided to give it a try.

The alley itself was actually kind of interesting too, full of bikes and various doors going who knows where. Although I wasn’t really there to do any serious shooting (I took most...

Working The Scene From Tokyo’s World Trade Center

One of the many challenges in photography is what we call “working the scene.” It means drawing out multiple pictures from the same scene, in other words, getting different angles, lighting, subjects, etc. This can be difficult, yet it’s important for a number of reasons. First of all, it can differentiate you from other photographers. For example, Tokyo’s World Trade Center (where I took this photo from) is a popular spot for photographers to shoot...
