Towards Evening: Ginza, Tokyo.

Had been out with a new student, doing a lesson with him. We were sort of done by the time I shot this... just sitting in the street enjoying the last of the evening light.

I have an ongoing series of shots from Ginza, of people in outline, silhouette or blurred by camera movements [tilt, shift, swing] or - in this case - selective focus from just the aperture. I'm also somewhat obsessed with road markings....

Nikon D700

Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 Ai

DR-3 right-angle finder

Straight out of the camera and shot with my Monochrome HC-01 picture control for Nikon.
