For those of you who have seen any of my work before, you'll be aware of the umbrella obsession I have.
Some might call it a fetish.
I'm not fussed either way. And I can't stop shooting the things.
This one was from my last afternoon in Fukuoka, whilst I was down there are the end of last year for a shoot for KLM's inflight magazine.
My friend[Chef] had been assisting me all week. Check out his work. He's got a good eye has Chef. Was great to have his help for a few days and just hang out.
We spent the last day I was there just chilling out. It was pissing with rain and freezing cold. We hadn't planned to go out but something happened [blog post about that coming later] which made it impossible for us to stay indoors.
This was shot from the hip with my 50mm f/1.2Ai at f/2. Monochrome is done in-camera. The shot isn't cropped at all.
..after a while of doing it, shooting the 50 from my hip is like having my eye on the end of my arm: you just have a built-in feeling for how to hold the camera to get exactly the framing you want.
