Flashing February

Flashing February

I picked up the Leica SF 24D Flash a few years ago but I haven’t used it much.  I mostly use my larger Leica SF-58 Flash which I am pretty comfortable with but it isn’t very practical or very ergonomic to shoot with.    I want to get better with the SF 24D...
The year comes to an end

The year comes to an end

I love this time of year.   Japan shuts down at the end of the year and I have some time to myself so I can close out on all of the unfinished things in my life.  I finish any paperwork I need to get done around the house, I empty my email boxes, I go through my...
Another day in Tokyo

Another day in Tokyo

Two of my friends Marysol and Dennis were in Tokyo from Texas.   Dennis was kind enough to be one of the seven big backers on my Kickstarter Project that helped me to fund the creation of my ShootTokyo Book.   We first caught up for long lunch and then a personal...

The Sony A7s

The Sony A7s

Last week I finally got the Sony A7s for shooting video.  I posted my first video on my ShootTokyo YouTube Channel.  It isn’t perfect but it wasn’t meant to be.  I am going to learn to shoot video and share it (mistakes and all) on YouTube Channel so feel...

Robot Restaurant

I get asked a lot by students coming to Tokyo what is a good cost effective camera to capture Tokyo with.   I always answer the same way – the Ricoh GR.   I love mine.  It has great ISO capability.  The wide perspective is perfect for capturing Tokyo.    You can...
Harmonica Yokocho

Harmonica Yokocho

I went shooting with my friend Henry last weekend and he let me borrow his Leica M Type 240.   I haven’t tried that camera before so thought it would be interesting to try it out and see if I like it. We decided to head to Kichijoji’s Harmonica Yokocho....
