This past monday was Ocean Day and so to celebrate, I thought it only fitting to make a trek over to the beach to take in some sun, sand and of course, beautiful blue summer skies. A lot of my photography to date has centered around pictures of the sky and buildings, but recently I’ve been trying to expand my repertoire by taking more photos of people. So with that in mind, I coerced the lovely Bethann and Maya into coming along to the beach for a summery ocean themed photoshoot.
A few shots of the lovely Maya taken last week in Tokyo… I really want this lens, but for the time being I’m shooting with this and this. Oh, and this for the catchlights.
It’s been a while since I’ve been in a car with the lovely Risapie (in fact, I believe the last time was some 7 years ago!!) but last weekend we found ourselves in a car headed to a very rainy Kawaguchiko (Lake Kawaguchi) for a lovely overnight trip to the beautiful Fujigoko area out west of Tokyo. It’s the middle of the rainy season here and as luck would have it, it rained all weekend AND I forgot my umbrella… things weren’t all bad, however, I ended up getting some pretty nice photos of a cloud-covered Mt. Fuji which make for a nice change of pace from the usual blue-skies postcard-type shots.
