Photo Book (写真の本)



I have produced a book of a collection of photos I have taken over the last 10 years. It includes animals, wildlife, landscapes, people and Japanese scenes. You can check it out here, and even buy it if you are interested. I had a few copies made for presents and was very pleased with the result and book quality.

写真集を作ってみた。10年間で撮った写真から選んで作った。このリンクにクリックすれば見ることができる。もし興味があれば、買うこともできるから是非みてください。4冊ぐらいプレゼントとして頼んでみたら、品質にかなり満足した。

Reverse Macro (リバースマクロ)


I tried this out last night with a cheap used lens that I picked up at a second hand camera shop. I have only taken a few quick snaps but was pleased with the result so far. This is a 22mm 5 yen coin. Click on the image to see a a larger resolution version of the pic. This is much better than a 1:1 macro shot!

昨日これをやって見た。簡単に言うとレンズを逆にして写真撮る。中古で安いレンズを買って作ってみた。まだあんまり撮ってないけど結果として満足してる。この5円玉は普通の1:1マクロよりかなり大きい!より大きいサイズをみるためにこの写真にクリックしてください。

Getting Lucky (ラッキーチャンス)

It's not often these guys let you get close to enough to where they perch to take a decent pic. This black kite moved a few times, but finally got used to me following him and let me get reasonably close for a decent shot. (taken on the same day as the one below)
普段、鳶は人を見たらすぐに飛んでしまうからなかなk良い写真撮れない。このやつは何回も移動したけど、だんだんなれてきたから近くまで行けた。(したの写真と同じ日に撮った。)

Drowned... (溺れた。。。)

Came across this unfortunate dog while at shooting in the creekbed 2 days ago. Notice the collar.
二日前、川の辺で撮影してた時、このかわいそうな犬を見つけた。首輪もある。。。

Black Kite in Flight (飛んでる鳶)

I had some pretty harsh light for photography yesterday, but I had the afternoon off, so I wanted to make the most of it. I went to the local river and sat watching the black kites doing their normal routine. Although the bigma is considered a bad lens for birds in flight, I was pretty happy with some of the results I got yesterday.
昨日は写真撮りに行ったけど曇ってたから写真に最適でもなかった。それでも、撮れたのはかなり満足できた。川の辺に行って鳶を見て、シグマの50-500mmレンズで撮った。
