The Bake Shop’s 2nd Anniversary Party in Jiyugaoka

The Bake Shop’s 2nd Anniversary Party in Jiyugaoka

My favorite place in Jiyugaoka, simply named ‘The Bake Shop’ had their 2nd Anniversary Party last night.   I was invited to go and decided to photograph the event for them.   I haven’t photographed big events before so it was a good chance to practice manually focusing fast…as people don’t want to stand and pose for you for too long.   I also got a chance to really give my Leica SF-58 flash a run.  I haven’t had a chance to really use it since I got it.   I really love this place so it was nice to get to do this for them.   I am running to the print shop this morning and I am going to print off the photos for them as well and drop them off when I pick up my lunch there today.

If you were there last night and you want any of the photos, please click the contact link above and drop me a mail and let me know the number of the photo that you would like.  You can see the number of the photo by hovering your mouse over it.
