Monsoon Magic

Recently someone on my Facebook page challenged me to produce a sunset photo processed only in Lightroom, and this is my answer to that request! Although rainy season in Japan certainly produces a lot of rain, it also produces some incredible sunsets. We’ve had a string of those this year, but I’ve been super busy...

    A Meat Shop In Chiba

    Over the course of this year, one goal I’ve had is to capture normal, everyday scenes of Japan. I love a great landscape or cityscape of course, but in a sense those are easy to photograph. It’s a lot harder to share the essence of a place; to really express in photographs the atmosphere or...

      Autumn Is On The Way

      The weather here lately has been extremely rainy, almost as if we’re going through a second rainy season. Thankfully, unlike the actual rainy season, it’s not nearly as hot or muggy. In fact, it’s been quite cool, with hints of autumn weather in the air. But the air isn’t the only place those hints are...

          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

        Photographing Summer Fireworks

        Everyone loves fireworks! They’re beautiful, bright, and just generally awesome. And no matter where you live, you’re likely to have at least one day during the year when your town hosts a grand fireworks display. In Japan this is certainly the case, particularly during the month of August, when fireworks festivals are held across the...
