It's been a very busy month or two and my apologies for being absent from here and from posting anything new on my blogs etc.
Apart from being busy, the blog and my other sites have been going through a difficult time with the webhost; lots of downtime. all very annoying. Hope that this will all be resolved very soon.
In the past month I have been all over Japan, shooting for various clients: Tokyo, Hiroshima, Hofu-shi, Tokushima, Osaka, Chiba, Kanagawa, Awa-jishima, Kobe....
It's been a lot of hard work but it's all been great fun.
I look forward, over the coming few weeks, to having a little more time to shoot for myself and to spend on posting stuff online.
This shot was taken as part of my location-scouting for a shoot I was doing in Yamaguchi-ken for Mazda last week. We ended up not using this exact spot.
Lovely, quiet and still night down on the quayside in Hofu City. No tripod so this was shot with the aid of a nearby wall. The super-wide lens is very front-heavy and the camera doesn't sit up without being held. For a 10sec exposure holding or touching the camera in any way isn't gonna work. So, I used my iPhone on it's side to wedge between the lens barrel and the ground. Remote cable was back in the car so I set this off with the self-timer.
I would have used a much longer exposure and lower ISO/smaller aperture etc if I had been using a tripod.
Techs and specs?
