ShootFukushima

ShootFukushima

I have finished my ShootFukushima project last week.   If you haven't gotten a chance to check it out please do.  It comprised of 9 posts of the trip that have been shared more than 4,500 times!  As a photographer is it really good to work on projects sometimes.  I haven't done this in a while so it was nice to get the chance to get out and work really hard on one project. I have summarized my project with a video:

Here was the ShootFukushima journey:

Ouijuku with NHK

NHK (Japan's largest broadcaster) aired a special in Fukushima on my trip and project.  It starts about at about 8:40 in this video.

Japanese are known for attention to detail and striving for perfection.  Have a cup of tea and you can see this all come together.
