Step Stone Woods

Walking through the woods of Mt. Mitake this past September. Lovely place for a little quiet time away from the big city.

Morning Waves

A while back, a friend saw a photo I had taken with my wife's Nikon J1 and, surprised by the result, remarked "ahh, so it's not just the camera, it's also the software." It was a bit of a facepalm moment, but in truth he's partially right. Software is important, but just as important is your ability to use it. Today's photo illustrated that pint for me.

I was going to share a new photo today, but last night my first son was born! Pretty excited to be a dad for the third time. One of the greatest treasures God has given man.

今日新しい写真をシェアするつもりだったけど、昨日の晩初めての男の子が生まれたのです!3回目お父さんになることで喜びます。神様に与えられている宝の一つです。

|| Stone At Rest ||

I don't do much editing these days that takes the image far beyond the scope of how the original scene looked, but I believe creative flexibility is important. That's what I used in this image, and I also have a video up at my blog showing how I got the nice milky smooth effect in the sky. Check it out here: http://lestaylorphoto.com/a-stone-at-rest/

+Anthony Wood I've heard of it, I think I saw someone explain it in a tutorial somewhere, but I've not used it yet. I expect I may get a chance to try it out as I do more long exposures this year though. So nice to finally have the right sizes for my various lenses. :)

First Sunrise of 2015

Took this on January 1st from Kyujyukyuri beach on Japan's Pacific coast. Having recently received our Japanese driver's licenses, my family decided to rent a car and head there to see the first light of the new year. Although clouds blocked the sun itself until later in the day, the colors of the morning were still spectacular. More on the trip and my post processing technique for this photo at today's blog post:

Merry Christmas everyone! Got a bit of a photographer's bundle today. 3 Legged Thing tripod, a bunch of filters, and a fun lens shaped thermos (Nikon of course!). But most of all I got to spend it with my wife and children, and see the joy on their faces this morning as they received gifts themselves. Hope you all can experience that same joy today!

Pink Messengers

Plum blossoms are beginning to bloom around Japan. Many have yet blossom but those that have are lovely. Shot this earlier this week at Yushima Tenjin in Tokyo.

Stones of Choshi

A couple of weeks back I took a trip out to Choshi in Chiba Prefecture with +Anthony Wood for a day of shooting. I intended to get out for the sunrise, but due to navigation error on my part, I missed it. I hoped I'd at least catch a nice sunset, but then it clouded over. Sometimes, you just gotta work with what you have! I really liked the red moss (I guess it's moss?) growing on the rocks here, so I tried to emphasize that in my editing process. One major tool I used for that is color range selection. You can see more about it in quick tip video I made, which is in today's blog post. Check it out here:

Haneda Sunset

This is a photo I took out at Haneda a couple of weeks ago for +JapanTravel. I was there primarily to take photos and write an article for them on a new restaurant called Hitoshinaya. It's not just the assignment talking when I say it was delicious! You can read the full article and see other photos here:

I see, but still very impressive. Did you use Lightroom mobile? VSCO?

Through Clear Glasses

This is the Meganebashi Bridge in Gunma Prefecture. "Meganebashi" literally means "glasses bridge," a name it received due to its glasses like shape. I was happy to be able to get this shot because I think the bridge has a lot of character to it. I love the rich colors of the brick as well as the great texture that comes along with it. Mixed together with the colors of autumn, it becomes a great scene you can only find in the mountains of Japan.
