architecture made in japan

Tokyo is the biggest metropolitan area on the Earth. With estimated 30 million people squeezed around. No wonder apartments and hotel rooms are super small and buildings are super high. In the Shinjuku area I’ve got amazed by a few of them. This is a classical example of “working the scene”. All shots were made within a radius of few meters… and almost two hours of playing 😉 And this is the main object of the majority of the shots. Cocoon Tower, skyscraper of the year 2008, pretty photogenic, isn’t it?

bad weather outside

Still getting back to our session where we played a lot with lights, flashes and of course human curves. And actually the bad weather outside didn’t bother us at all – vice versa, it helped to create a fantastic background for Ema. Off camera flash with an orange gel fired via pocketwizard and camera set at f/14 (to get the background as sharp as possible) and  1/200 second shutter speed to freeze ema’s hair in motion. And approximately 2 kg of fun! 😉It’s a bit less than 4 pounds – for my 12 fingers friends.

guess who?!

We had a family trip today and such a delicious composition appeared in front of my lens…Guess who is it? PS: Trip members are not allowed to guess 😉 Anybody guessed mud ground in Death Valley? OK, OK, not really … 😉 Why would I ask “who”, right?Please meet his (or her?) majesty Lazy Hippo from St. Louis Zoo.
