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

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

First Sunrise at Chiba’s Pacific Coast

While I believe America definitely has the upper hand when it comes to the Christmas holiday season, Japan takes the cake a week later for New Years. In America, my experience has been that New Years is just an excuse to party. In Japan however, there’s a whole list of traditions surrounding New Years. Since...

    Shiraito Falls

    In May I took a trip down to Shizuoka Prefecture for a meeting, and anytime I travel I can’t help but hope to use the chance to also take some photos! Thankfully, the meeting ended in the early afternoon which left me just enough time to take a short trip to Shiraito Falls. This lovely...
