The photography project I have in mind is to shoot a series of Japanese traditional and pop icons including; mountains, bamboo, homes, temples, shrines, festivals, cities, food, clothing, toys, and anything else I can think of. If I shoot enough great photos I might compile them into a book. It sounds like a lot but I think I can handle say a 40 page book project. The biggest problem I face, I face now. I need to find several people willing to model specific clothing (they should be easy on the eyes), to keep down the cost i need to find people who already own those iconic clothes, I need to mark out locations for shooting, work out the time of day that would produce the best light for the image, find traditional homes that I can photograph thoroughly, manage buss and train tickets, manage the weather, and whatever problems will surely arise.
For many of the photos I wish to take, involves traveling. Traveling in Japan isn't difficult but I've never done it alone before. May freak some people out but sounds like a lot of fun to me. Wish me luck. Talk to you later in my next post. Please subscribe.
