The many poses of Carlos the photographer (in Japan)
Some time ago I created a blog post with various images of Carlos in different poses showing how sometimes to get that shot you really want, you need to alter your angle. I decided that I would create another of these posts first showing Carlos and second showing myself. Also it’s sometimes nice to see the photographer behind the blog so there are a few additional photos in here too.
A good breakfast is always the best way to start the day…particularly when you are going to be walking and taking photographs all day. This was the first time we had the traditional Japanese breakfast.
There are many wide boulevards in Tokyo which seemed to stretch forever. I had wanted to take this shot as I crossed the road, and by the time I had reached the other side Carlos was already standing on the central reservation. There were plenty of stops for snacks to regain our energy. We spent most of our days just walking around different cities in Japan. I find walking (as opposed to taking the subway all the time) a great way to see different areas of the city. This was in McDonalds whicb had surprisingly good coffee!
A common pose – so many interesting skylines. Here, trying to position Osaka castle in the background. Another reminder of the importance of looking for details when walking about. I hadn’t seen these little bird sculptures on the barrier when I first walked past. We didn’t take too many lenses with on this trip as we didn’t want to be weighed down, or have to spend too much time changing lenses. However, we did take our compact cameras (my Fujifilm X10 and Carlos’ Sony RX100).
