Killing time

May 27, 2014

A couple of friends and I headed up north from where I am based in hopes of shooting the meteor shower. There was lots of buzz in the media about it and the weather report promised clear skies. Needless to say, we were pretty excited. So we drove for a couple of hours up in to the mountains and realized that mountain weather is not as predictable as we thought. It had misted over and shooting the stars just was not going to happen. Rather than waste the night we decided to head into the forest for a bit of light painting fun. It was a great night with great friends and in the end I was happy that it did cloud over.

LP Seminar in Okinawa was Awesome!

We had a series of light painting workshops this past weekend down in Okinawa which were a huge success. LED Lenser Japan, Light Painting Brushes, and Lomography Japan supported the event with some great door prizes. I also owe a huge thank you to Chris Willson Photography.

The Blue Diamonds of the Sea. 海ぼたる

Have you ever heard of sea fireflies? We hired a boat to take us out to a remote island off the coast of Okayama, Japan to photograph these amazing creatures. They are locally known as “umibotaru”, here in Japan, and they live on the sandy beaches of the Seto Inland Sea.
