Spring Is In The Air | Cherry Blossoms in Tokyo

Shot 8th April 2012:

Some lovely scenes around Tokyo right now and this street in my neighbourhood - through a park that runs parallel to the railway tracks - never fails to deliver some wonderful blossom and great photo opportunities.

Shot this on my walk to the station the other day. I was on my way to a shoot so I had all the gear on me and took out the 80-200mm for the walk as it's great at isolating subjects from a little bit of a distance, which is useful when you don't really want to interrupt the moment you're shooting.


Nikon D700

Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 ED

Camera set to continuous AF [C] and 51-point 3D AF tracking. The best setup for shooting moving objects.

Shot with a Kodak Portra 160NC film-emulation curve in the camera [basically a picture control made to look like this particular Kodak film]
