Shooting models in Tokyo: a walk and shoot with Norie

Been a couple of weeks since Norie and I did this shoot but we've done a few bits of work since then. Meeting up next week to organize a new shoot with her, for a friend who makes some amazing jewellery. Looking forward to that.

See a load more shots we did the day we did this one below, at this link:

Pokemon Go, Japan: 'Pikachu is on your left.....'

I was in Shibuya the other day shooting exclusively with the 300mm f/4 prime that I have for my Nikon. I do that sometimes: go out with just one prime lens, to keep my eyes fit and see what I can see.

I was shooting around the crossing and Pikachu made an appearance. The couple on the left in this picture, looking at their smartphone, sort of seemed to fit nicely with the idea of searching for characters with the new Pokemon Go app.

Cherry blossom season in Japan: the couple, the selfie, the kiss

Last week I took a couple of pals out to a great place in Saitama that I know. The location never fails to deliver something wonderful. I got a few nice shots that day but this one is special....

Great place for the sakura and for the nanohana.

Shinkansen passing through Yurakucho, Tokyo

Another one shot from the new Tokyu Plaza Building in Ginza the other day.

Not the best weather but it's a great view and there's always something to watch.

Great angle on the trains here and the proximity of the billboards makes for a lovely dense feeling.

H Marks The Spot: view into Yurakucho from Tokyu Plaza Building

The new Tokyu Plaza Building has created a lovely new vantage point in the centre of Tokyo. Just a few minutes walk from Yurakucho and the Ginza 4-chome, the new Tokyu Plaza building has a superb view from its 11th floor rooftop terrace.

It's not open, so you are shooting through glass but the view is nonetheless new and unique.

Great views of Ginza, the zebra-crossing below and areas around Yurakucho.

Less gear, less time, more exercise: the 'cup ramen' shoots

Over the last couple or three years, I’ve done a few of what I call ‘cup ramen shoots’. The idea is basically to shoot a fashion set in about the time it would take to unwrap, add boiling water to and prepare a cup-ramen [cup noodle]. Which, depending on the variety of noodle, is between 3 and 5minutes. It’s a bit of a laugh. It’s also very good exercise for me, my model and – if it’s part of a lesson – my students.

Just like for athletes, I think it’s really important for creative professionals to have exercises and routines to keep fit. I have a few of my own which also get me out of the creative ruts I often find myself in; those times of the month where you just take a look at your work and think ‘this is crap and I’ve lost my mojo’.

Which, depending on the variety of noodle, is between 3 and 5minutes. It’s a bit of a laugh. It’s also very good exercise for me, my model and – if it’s part of a lesson – my students.

Just like for athletes, I think it’s really important for creative professionals to have exercises and routines to keep fit. I have a few of my own which also get me out of the creative ruts I often find myself in; those times of the month where you just take a look at your work and think ‘this is crap and I’ve lost my mojo’.

The ‘cup-ramen shoot’ is one of these exercises. I usually mix it up with one or two of the other ‘creative gymnasium’ routines that I have: one prime lens, one light, one gel, one modifier.

Yesterday I’d been doing an all-day photo tour/lesson with Michael, who is in Japan for a month from Germany. It’s his first trip here. We visited a load of cool places during the day and as Michael likes shooting models – in and out of the studio – we decided to hook up with Norie in Shibuya for a quick shoot and a beer to end the day.

Everything we did took about 30mins, which included finding the location, thinking about the setup, Michael shooting what he wanted to and me shooting a few frames (the cup-ramen part, as all my shots took less than 5mins).

Michael told me he had a great day. Seeing the very quick setup I shot gave him, he said, real inspiration to pare things down a lot and concentrate on limiting himself more. Limitations, IMHO, are a great way of focusing and honing your skills. Limitations like:

One light.
Monochrome only
3200K only
5min time limit
36shots only
No deletes
One prime.
etc etc….

Keep it simple. Do it often. The eye is a muscle. So is your brain. They need regular exercise. Repetition and routine can be very useful for keeping the photographer fit and on the ball.

Gear used in this shot:

Nikon D3S
14mm f/2.8
1 x Nikon SB-800 (held by my student)
Radio trigger for the flash
1 x green gel___

Yesterday's sunset, from our roof in Tokyo

Amazing sunset yesterday which I was fortunate enough to spot during a break in some work. Headed up to our roof with the first camera/lens that fell to my hand and quickly got some snaps before everything was over.

This spot in East Tokyo is one of my favourite old little areas to explore. Great old streets, great street food, lovely friendly locals.

..and there's a train about every 30secs.

Cap-cloud on Fuji at sunset, shot from Tokyo

Yesterday when I shot this I didn't even notice that Fuji had its signature 'cap-cloud', a lenticular cloud that sits over the summit when the conditions are right.

Nice surprise catch during what was a spectacular sunset.

Mount Fuji from Tokyo: sunset from the roof of our flat

Amazing sunset yesterday just before today's typhoon swept through town. I've been spending more time on our roof of late, shooting timelapses and taking some photos It's a good spot for me to do some thinking, see the horizon and get some space and fresh air.

It's also a damn good view.

You can see Mount Fuji at the far left of the frame, behind the high-rises in Musashi Kosugi.

Lovely way to end the day.

Tokyo time lapse: the sunset in a tiny puddle

Time lapse shot just now on our roof in Omori, Tokyo. Phone was rested on top of a piece of equipment that's on our roof, which had a little pool of water left from today's rain... hence the reflection of the clouds at the bottom of the frame. The phone fell over about halfway through the time lapse.

Love how the puddle shrinks as it evaporates over the course of the series.

In Shibuya with the Kerlee 35mm f/1.2

I've been testing out a pre-production copy of the new Kerlee 35mm f/1.2 lens and whilst I haven't had so much time to shoot with it recently, because of a busy patch of work, the times I have been out with it have left me very impressed.

It's a manual-focus lens, which is fine for me. I shoot with a lot of manual lenses - many of which I have had since I was a kid - and whilst it's sometimes better to have an AF lens, manual does me fine 90% of the time.

I'll be writing a proper write-up of the lens soon.

This one from a week or so ago in Shibuya.

Shot from the hip, focused at 3metres.

Out doing a 24hr test with the only Hasselblad X1D in Japan right now. My buddy and fellow former Hasselblad Ambassador, Derek Makishima, has finally passed out on the table in McDonalds. I'm backing up data now and we're charging batteries. We've been out shooting since 11am yesterday morning. It's currently just after 4am here in Tokyo. We're hitting Tsukiji market next. Great day of shooting. Looking forward to showing some of our shots at the Japan launch of the X1D in Tokyo on Friday. #hasselbladx1d #x1d #hasselblad #tokyo

Location portrait photography in Tokyo: Joe going 'gangster'

My eldest son and I went out yesterday for a bit of a walk through some cool parts of town he hadn't really been to so much before.

I took the camera, obviously, and one flash.

We shot this at a spot I've known for ages but never shot a portrait in before.

Details?

My eldest son and I went out yesterday for a bit of a walk through some cool parts of town he hadn't really been to so much before.

I took the camera, obviously, and one flash.

We shot this at a spot I've known for ages but never shot a portrait in before.

Details?

Shooting sports in Japan: my eldest son's last sports-day at junior high-school

This week has been a busy week, mostly with shooting the four-day Advertising Week Asia event as their official photographer. Friday was spent teaching and having meetings, yesterday was spent shooting the junior high-school sports-day for the school magazine.

It is my eldest son's last year at the school and was his last sports-day. H has run the 100m for his school and the city. This shot was taken of him running as anchor in the relay. The kid running the leg before him had fallen on the last bend, leaving Joe a lot of catching -up to do. He lost the race by 2cms.... after re-gaining about 40m on the guy in front.

Details of this shot?

I use this cheap kit lens anywhere where there are bad conditions. In this case, a lot of dust and crap flying around and blowing in the wind. As long as you stop it down to f/8 or smaller, it's sharp as a razor.

I was sat on the curve in the track, just after the baton-change area.

I'd set the lens at around f/8 and manual focus. I was zone focusing to get as wide an area of the track as possible.

Camera was on C(H) mode, to fire rapidly.

I was cradling the camera in my hands, low and away from my face, just above the ground... and panning with the runners as they passed me.

Architectural photography in Tokyo: looking for a new angle on an old friend

The Mode Gakuen building in Tokyo is iconic and has been a feature of the Shinjuku skyline ever since I have lived here. Finished and opened in 2008, the building hosts a creative university and has always reminded me more than a little of London's 'Gerkin'.

As a building that has had my attention for eight years now, finding a new angle is always a fascinating challenge.

Re-visiting locations, whatever they may be, is one of the regular exercises I have as part of what I call my 'photographic gymnasium'. These are things I do regularly to keep my eye sharp, my mind keen and my approach from getting stale.

This new angle was one I found a couple of months ago, when I was out doing an architectural photography tour for a lady in town from the UK. ... mehr »

Photowalks in Tokyo: colours and textures of Moto-azabu

I went out with one of my photography students today, to have a wander around parts of Azabu with the intention of looking at texture and colour. Here’s some of my shots from the walk we had together.

Tokyo is a fascinating and multi-faceted city. Walk a few metres from any main road and you can suddenly find yourself in a quiet backstreet that has the feel of a small village. Tokyo is, perhaps, nothing more or less than thousands of villages strung together.

Travel photography in Japan: assignment out-takes from Hyogo & Tottori

One of the things about shooting travel photography, especially for inflight magazines, is that there is a lot of material that doesn’t get used. This is the first in a series of articles about the out-takes that occur when on assignment.

Lots of pics in the gallery at the link below:

Photowalks in Japan: off the beaten track in Kamakura

Kamakura makes a great day-trip from Tokyo but it’s good to get away from the main touristy areas. This walk is one I have been doing for years. It’s great in any season, takes you through some amazing but quiet and tranquil shrines and brings you out to the Kamakura’s north beach.

Two large galleries of photos in the article:

Fashion photography in Tokyo: Norie in Ginza

One from the quick shoot we did on Sunday, which was mostly for a fella in town from New Zealand who wanted to learn how to use the city as a studio. So, we shot in a few locations with him doing most of the shooting, me doing the art-directing and advice.

But at each site I did a quick 'this is what I'd do here if it was my shoot' type of shot.

A recent bout of hard work designing, art-directing and producing content for this magazine and I finally have a copy in my hand. Looks great. Very happy.

Cherry blossom season in Japan: the couple, the selfie, the kiss

Last week I took a couple of pals out to a great place in Saitama that I know. The location never fails to deliver something wonderful. I got a few nice shots that day but this one is special....

Great place for the sakura and for the nanohana.

Norie: fashion shooting in Tokyo

Norie and I were out yesterday doing some shooting for a friend who has a jewellery brand. Eenabo Jewellery.

We started at Tokyo Fashion Week and then went for some lunch, shooting later around Harajuku. This was shot just around the corner from Hasselblad's place in Harajuku. 

Not for the jewellery shoot, really, as it's not close enough up to see the pieces Norie was wearing. But I just like this spot and the red dress, white wall and yellow road markings made for a nice combo.

Enevu Cube Light: shooting some fashion pics with one in Tokyo

A mate of mine here is promoting the new Enevu Cube Light and let me have a couple to play with. My daughter has one in the den she built in the 押し入れ [large Japanese cupboard] at home and won't give it back to me!

Great little light.

Had some fun with Norie the other evening, out in the streets around MidTown in Roppongi.

Full moon over The SkyTree: Tokyo, Japan

I was busy getting a shot around the other side of the viewing deck of this building or I would have got the moon right above the SkyTree.

But, it's not a bad shot.

Taken last October, whilst on a day out around Tokyo with a friend in town from Mexico.

We ended up here for the sunset.

Good lookout spot. Used to be awesome vie of Mount Fuji out of the opposite side, until a company built a 33-floor monolith in between this building and the view.

Wires, mirror, pigeon: photowalk in Akabane, Tokyo

Shot this last week, whilst out doing a lesson/tour for someone in town from France.

Akabane is a superb spot for a photowalk. Loads of interesting stuff to see. The day we were out, it was amazing weather. Loved the blue and orange combination here.

Saw the pigeons coming but got lucky with the bird that had its wings spread like you see here.

Portrait photography in Tokyo: the Nissan LEAF owner, for Nissan

Back in November of last year I was commissioned by an advertising agency to shoot a portrait of a Japanese Nissan LEAF owner, for display as a huge print on the Nissan-Renault stand at the 2015 COP21 Climate Talks.

It looks like a simple portrait but as usual there is a story to these things.....

Seems like half a lifetime ago now, that I spent a couple of days shooting with +Iain Baker and +Francisco Nunez for the +TOKYO EXTRA show.

Fashion photography in Tokyo: test shoot with Norie

Spent a few hours the other day out with Norie, shooting around Yoyogi and Shibuya.

Here's the first from the shoot. We got some great pictures.

This was shot with my Monochrome HC [high-contrast] 01 Picture Control. It's just been converted from RAW to TIFF, cropped and had a watermark added in Photoshop then saved as a JPEG. Apart from that, it's as it was shot.

I'm off down to NAF Atsugi near Yokohama today, to shoot Carrier Air Wing 5.

Looking forward to it immensely.

I left my stripy slippers at home :-)

It was as if a dream appeared: shooting Reverie in Tokyo

I had a mixed week last week. David Bowie died, one of my websites got hacked to death, then Alan Rickman fucking died as well..... but.. but... I got to make these photos.

Do go and look at the article. There are 79 moments of absolute grace in there.
