Atami Nights

This is another photo from my recent trip through Atami in Shizuoka Prefecture. As I mentioned in a previous post, I got there a bit later than I would have liked, so I ended up taking some shots I hadn’t really planned on in an effort o maximize my time. Sometimes you just have to...

    Crossing Paths In Tokyo

    This photo is one I took at the Tokyo World Trade Center early this year. I really enjoy light trails in city photography, but I think sometimes it gets overused, when there are other forms of showing movement that are really great. In this case, I kept my shutter open for just half a second...

      Evening Begins In Tokyo

      I may have said this before, but Ueno Station in Tokyo is one of my favorite train stations. Much of the photography you see out of Tokyo is focused around the Central or Western areas – places like Shinjuku or Shibuya, for example – and I think places like Ueno are comparatively less popular. Personally,...

      • Sem'sah, sugee…
        Tokina lenses are good?
        I’m considering buying one, the 12 28 F/4 or nikon 16 85 F/3.5 – 5.6
        in this photo, are you using Adobe lightroom?

        sorry for my poor english -_-!ReplyCancel

        • leslieThanks! 🙂 Yes, I love my Tokina lens. I’ve used it tons since I bought it. Very sharp and sturdy build.

          As for this photo, I used Lightroom, Photomatix, and Photoshop CC. This is a true HDR photo, so it is made up of three different exposures.

      Light Trails of Kaihin Makuhari and New Tutorial!

      Very excited to share today’s photo! First, because I like the photo a lot. But also because this is the first photography tutorial I’ve done in quite a while. I know a lot of people like light trail photography, but not everyone knows how to do it. So using this photo I take you from...

        Flying Through Tokyo

        This is another shot I took last week from the World Trade Center in Tokyo. I saw this road between two tall apartment complexes, and I knew I wanted to get a shot of it, but I wasn’t really sure how. You can’t really tell in this photo, but to the right of the frame,...

        • JordanI really like this one. I hope to make my HDR skills as impressive, one day. Great photo!ReplyCancel

          • leslieThanks, Jordan! I think I started w/ HDR when I first saw Trey Ratcliff’s work back in maybe 2007 or 2008. But my original work was … less than impressive, we’ll say. Over the past few years I’ve done a lot more of it and improved my skills there. Actually with this one I used a new program called Perfect Effects by OnOne. They were giving away the program for a few days so I tried it out and I’ve been pretty impressed. Usually though after Photomatix I use Topaz Adjust, so this was a bit of a change for me.ReplyCancel
