Shinjuku 2:21am

Shinjuku 2:21am

I went out to over the weekend and did some late night shooting in Shinjuku.   I always think it is so surreal to see a city when it is empty.   Yodobashi Camera still has it’s magnetic draw to me even at 2am…

Thanks for stopping by today…

    interesting post-processing, have you used some filters?

    I used an action to increase increase the colors in the details and increase the contrast a bit and then lowered the saturation. I think it made for a nice effect.

  • Dave

    Thanks. I shot these with a Canon 5D MKII. The setting were a little different for each photo but basically they were all at 16mm, ISO 400, f/8.0 and the shutter speed were slighting different for each, between 3 and 8 seconds, for a proper exposure.

    Is this your own action that you used or one you purchased? I always have trouble finding the actions that suit my photos best. If you could share a tip that would be great! You photography is stunning btw.

    Thanks for the feedback Summer. For this set I used ‘all in the details’ from MCP actions. It works well for these types of shots as it boosts the contrast and brings out the color in the detail.
