Ok, I realize that I have been remiss in uploading any editorial / personal work recently. THAT WILL CHANGE.
HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS.
This is just a small thing I did with some very awesome friends of mine, in between jobs. I wanted to put together some kind of narrative behind it all but we kinda ran out of time, what with a typhoon approaching Tokyo and all that (ever tried holding onto the Photek softlighter during a typhoon?). Either way we survived with only a few dozen mosquito bites, but I think the photos were definitely worth the time spent.
As for gear, used the trusty Einstein / Vagabond combination (I never go anywhere without them) in combination with my favorite cheap light modifiers – the aforementioned Softlighter, and Apollo softbox. Thanks to Hamish for bringing the awesome cameras – Adriana has got the Mamiya TLR (forgot what it’s actually called) and Anna has her hands wrapped around a beautiful Hasselblad 501CM.
Although I didn’t really succeed in my goal of creating a mini story-vignette like this one, I never regret getting out there and shooting. If you’re feeling a bit lost with your photography, just remember to have fun with it. No point tearing out your hair about this if you’ve lost the enjoyment that got you into photography in the first place. Always be creating, but have fun while you’re doing it.
