A Glimpse Underneath captures a different perspective of a lantern in Japan. I often shoot lanterns because they are so fascinating, but I all too often get bored with them as well. So I like to try and photograph lanterns in different ways as much as possible. This was actually a difficult shot to do with regards to framing and keeping my camera still. The location was a bit tricky but I thought it turned out as planned.
A nice chilled out HipHop track set to a collection of photographs that fall under the theme category of “green” here in Nagano City, Japan. One of the things I often do in photography is to shoot with a specific theme in mind. This could be a color, object, motion, texture, etc. I find shooting for specific colors to be a joy and especially in collecting the photographs over time. Most of the photographs taken in this collection were photographed sometime in the summer or late Spring. I hope you enjoy they slideshow as much as I have enjoyed photographing the scenes within. By the way, “Midori” means “Green” in Japanese. “A Midori Summer in Japan” is by Jim Atwood Photography at http://jimatwood.net.

Ageha Hair Make Show Hachi
Photos were taken with a Keitai or Cell Phone by a Hair Stylist from our Salon. The quality is low and the shots were difficult to get, but you at least get an idea of what the show was like.
We are collecting information for an upcoming Photoshoot and Workshop we’ll be conducting over the summer with regards to the Ageha Hairstyle for both fashion and weddings.
I’m a big fan of the Gal Style in Japan for those who don’t already know. I run a J-Gal community website at www.ricoche.net which is very popular among gals all around the world.
