Glimpse Underneath

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.

Midori Japan

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
