Thursday night at the izakaya; Asakusabashi, Tokyo

First posting after a few days of computer hell, in which I lost 90% of what I shot during August. I am usually very religious with backing-up but this was a brand-new external drive and it lulled me into a false sense of security. One lives and learns.

Anyway, was out with a new student last night, who happens to live in one of my favourite neighbourhoods of town; Asakusabashi. Loads of action down there, some great light and great street-scenes. This one was shot without a tripod, using my bag on the floor as support. 5-shot bracketed HDR, blended in Photomatix 2.5.4 and then tweaked in Photoshop to get rid of the distortion from the the fact that I had to tilt the lens up to get everything in, from my low position.

  1. Hi Alfie,

    Great shot here, all without a tripod as well, very impressive.

    I met you last year I think at a photo networking evening, a long time ago anyway. I was taking some shots at Design Festa last week and Stephen was talking about you, now I stumbled upon your blog, so thought I would drop you a line and say hi.




  2. Very nice, especially since its without a tripod. What ISO was this?

  3. Really love your night landscapes. High five my friend.
