PotW: July 27 – August 02
First time playing with a lensbaby in an urban environment, and let me tell you, it was a lot of fun. I just set the focus to something about six/eight feet in front of me and started clicking away. I think it really emphasizes both the business of a city and also it’s isolation.
Did not do very much post-editing. Brightened (read: fixed poor exposure choices) and increased saturation slightly. Thought about going black and white, but that took away some of the “busy” aspect of the photo, so I decided against it.
According to the guidebook I brought with me on Tokyo, on average three million people go through Shinjuku station every day. Pretty intense. I happened upon this picture with another Kyushu JET named Nathaniel. It was fun wandering around with him and playing with my big camera which, honestly, I don’t do nearly as often as I should.
