Japan living, autos, and photos

The little things in life.

I must say, I do believe i am changing in some way. I am taking more time to do things i want to do, instead of what i have to do. Less of “it has to be done today” and more of, maybe later (not so much work, but things like my car, and stuff like that). Ive been spending much of my 3 years so far in japan balls out building cars. Im sure most of you that are reading this have seen them sometime or another, and if you haven’t, check out the flickr. Regardless, i have been reading Photography on the net much much more, and came across this thread…..Lighting thread and was inspired. I began building a softbox, got about half way done and started playing with it. I still dont have lights. I was only using the overhead light and an apollo diffuser on my 430ex. pictures are mediocre, but i dont care! I had fun with my birds, learned a bit about lighting, and above all….I had fun. Isn’t that what hobbies are all about? Food for thought for everything that gets stressed out over cars not working, pictures not turning out right, or anything else that can (and will) go wrong. Take life and roll with it.

Tokyo Auto Salon

This year Gaijin Drift was nice enough to let me be a contributing photographer for the coverage of the yearly Tokyo Auto Salon. If you have no clue what it is, basically this show is the Japanese version of SEMA in the US, however open to the public. There were a TON of 370z, Evo, STi, and the obligatory overhyped GT-R.

Among the 370Zs, these caught my eye.
