300-Series Shinkansen Dispatched to Nagoya: Tokyo Station, Japan

Another one shot during my Saturday visit to Tokyo Station's shinkansen [bullet-train] platforms with one of my photography students, Alexander.

This fella was very jolly. I shot one pic of him and he gave me the usual 'peace' sign, then I sort of gestured of it was OK to shoot some more and he was fine with that.

I showed him this shot afterwards. He was really pleased with it:

"Wuah, kakoi!!", he said [Wow, cool.]

Nikon D300

Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AF D @ f/2

DR-6 right-angle viewfinder

Cross processed with L08 filter in Nik, blended back in layers.

Slight tonal contrast tweak on the sharp areas.



  1. Awesome portrait. It has that cinematic touch to it.

    Great DOF and colors!

    Glad to meet on Twitter 🙂

  2. I love these officers they make me feel everything so well organized. Good framing.

  3. Nice shot! Very expressive 🙂
