Sunset at The Yasaka Pagoda In Kyoto

One of the main places I wanted to visit and photography during my recent trip to Kyoto was the Kiyomizu Temple. I was able to go but unfortunately the grounds close at 6pm, which is far too early during the warmer months to capture the sunset, as was my goal. I took what photos I...

  • David LaSpinaNice tutorial. I go through phases with my usage of split-toning. For a month I’ll use it on all my images, then I won’t touch it for a few months. Come to thing of it, I treat a lot of photo tools this way (HDR, textures, etc)

    Lovely photo too. I love Kyoto and when I first arrived in Japan I went there every few months (it’s only a 30 minute trip from Okazaki via shinkansen). At this point I haven’t visited in several years… I feel the urge to go there again when I see photos like this.ReplyCancel

    • leslieThanks! I love using split toning … I use it in some form in a large portion of my photos. I’ve sort of got a basic workflow I go through for most of my professional photos now, though it depends on the photo as to what I may or may not use of course. As for Kyoto, I loved it. The last time I went my photography skills were lacking at best, so it was a lot of fun this time to get to shoot it and feel like I could produce something worth sharing! 🙂ReplyCancel

    If you follow me on any of my various social media outlets, you’ll know that I was in Kyoto this past week. The main reason I went is to start filming for a digital workshop that I’m planning to release later this year. But one does not simply go to Kyoto to film part of...

      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...
