Stones of Choshi & Color Range Selection Tutorial

Feels like a long time since I last posted! And really I guess it has been, but for good reason – my third child and first son was born this past week. As you can imagine I’ve been quite busy (in a great way) with the new person in the family, but now I’m back...

    Mt Mitake Rock Garden

    I think this may be my favorite photo from my recent hike around Mt. Mitake. It took me a while to get around to the best parts of the rock garden (ロックガーデン) as I spent a lot of time at Nanayo waterfall and other areas earlier on in the hike. As you might imagine, after...

      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...

        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.

        Shimotsui Sunset

        This past week my family had the opportunity to travel back to Okayama where we lived 3 years ago. As you can imagine, I was really excited to take my camera around many of these places that I remember so well. For one, there were many spots that I never shot and afterward really wished...
