In the Rain in Tokyo

Daily Photo - In the Rain in Tokyo

Most of my walks around the city streets had me carrying two cameras. I keep the D3X on my tripod, and have that ready to go for serious HDR work. But over my right shoulder, I carry the D3S with a fast lens. In this case, I was using the 50mm prime (see my Nikon 50mm Review) to capture quick scenes in the streets.

 

I carry two cameras because it takes much too long to change lenses. Also, it's a real pain to do that sort of thing in the rain.

 

There are often questions about how I go about taking photos of strangers. I have a post coming up in the future with five great tips for this sort of thing... I'll try to get everything into one spot for you, since I know we all want to be able to better capture interesting people here and there as they pass through our worlds.

 

Big Video Event on June 21

I posted a new photo from the streets of Tokyo tonight in celebration of the completion of a new video work (which is Japan-centric). The video will be released on June 21. Stay tuned here and we'll all have a good time together!
