Blue Pontocho

This photo comes from Pontocho – a row of restaurants that line one of the rivers in Kyoto. Visitors can dine on these platforms and enjoy the great atmosphere, which is especially enjoyable during pleasant weather. On this particular evening it had been raining for most of the day, but as you can see the...

  • Gaijin au JaponI really love your work and what you are doing.
    Do you think it will be possible to know what you exactly did on lightroom on this shot?

    Thanks a lotReplyCancel

    • leslieIf I can remember what I did! 🙂 I think the main edits were for white balance to give it a bluer feel, split toning to make the lighted area a bit warmer, and then some edits for specific colors using the color adjustment module. I guess that’s not very specific but hopefully it gives you an idea!ReplyCancel

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...

    First Impressions: Making The Switch to Full Frame

    • Sem'scongratulation for upgrading to full frame les!
      any issues with this body? whereas D600 has many issues with oil spot on sensor?
      at this time i’m using D5100, and pretty happy with the result,
      One day I want to upgrade to the D7100 if my D5100 had reached the limit..ReplyCancel

    • leslieThe D610 was basically an update to fix the oil problem, and I haven’t noticed anything myself yet. Definitely loving it! As for the upgrade, the D7000 has been a fantastic camera for me, and I’m sure you’ll love the D7100 if you decided to upgrade. 🙂ReplyCancel

    Blue Evening Over Chiba City

    I mentioned in my last post that my daughter and I recently took a visit to the Chiba Port Tower in Chiba City. This tower is very interesting and quite unique. At 125 meters tall (over 400 feet) this tower would normally be around 40 stories, but it actually only has 4 floors. The first...

      Summer Storms Over Japan

      Last night I took an impromptu trip to check out the Chiba Port Tower with my daughter. It’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and in Japan that means lots of humidity, heat, and otherwise fatigue inducing weather. As a photographer, that’s not especially inspiring to go out and shoot, but it has been several weeks...
