Here’s another batch of photos shot at a recent workshop I held in Yoyogi, Tokyo. The great thing about teaching photography in Tokyo is that you are always surprised at who will become willing subjects for your students – this time it was student Rob Piazza who introduced this boxing gym to us, so we were very lucky to have two obliging and aspiring boxers to pose for us.
We used Nikon speedlights (a combination of SB-800s and SB-900s) to illuminate our subjects with Honl snoots and the Orbis ringflash for the second and third photo. Great fun was had by all – especially the boxers, who were very much getting into the spirit of things, as you can see from the last photo!
Lighting workshops run every weekend – this week: Lighting 101 for those who need a primer on flash to begin feeling confident about it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel like checking it out. Thanks to everyone who keeps coming out to these workshops – it’s always great to be in a creative atmosphere full of people who share your passion. Hope to see you at the next one!
