『写真加工 Advent Calendar 2015』12/01はyancunyongが書かせて頂きます。
These three photos were taken at a small party organized by my friend who lives in Nagoya. He drove his car two hours for the party here. We enjoyed excellent musics selected by DJs and Jack Daniel’s together. Thanks my friend! Music and whisky make me forget negative thinking and make me go ahead.
I also enjoyed taking photos of DJs with my PENTAX K-5 + fisheye + flash. Using flash with slow shutter speed of 1 sec. gave these photos interesting effects, isn’t it? It is my pleasure that you feel like listening music and smelling alcohol when you watch my photos :)
I’ve checked my photo stream stocked in my iMac. My photo stream started on May 26, 2000 when I bought the first IXI digital. I had Apple Quick Take 150 before but its photos were lost when I changed PCs. Checking old photos makes me happy and sometimes reminds me what I have forgotten. Each photo brings me feeling and passion when I took the photo. I’m so happy with photography.
Osaka is getting colorful day by day with flowers. I went to the Expo’70 Memorial Park to shoot February flowers with PENTAX K-5. Shooting colorful flowers is one reason and another reason is learning many functional buttons on K-5. As a matter of fact, I was the main photographer for wedding party of my friends’ in the evening of same day. I needed to practice which finger can set what function as soon as possible, hahaha. Anyway, I like to share colorful flowers in Osaka in February with you.
I have cough and soar throat and I must catch a cold. I gave up going out today so I had a time to check my photos I took recently.
Their play was incredibly comfortable and all the audiences had an excellent time with great jazz music and alcohol. As for me it was a good experience to take photos at very dark place without flash. Considering shutter speed and ISO speed quickly was really needed this time. I hope I can get much better photos next time. Please check other photos of the session if you have free time.
Cosmos field in the Expo’70 Memorial Park in Osaka
It was a little difficult for me to look for wildlife because most of flowers, parks and animals I can see here are not wild ones. Anyway, I went to Expo’70 Memorial Park with my cameras. Fortunately I met some insects in the park and all the insects in the park are, yes, wildlife.
I just re-seized these three photos.
I visited Expo’70 Memorial Park today when my family went shopping. It was a national holiday here in Japan on October 10 and was fine weather. There were so many families, couples and amateur photographers in the park. Main purpose of photographers was taking photos of cosmos. For me, of course, cosmos :) I got the park at noon so I had lunch and took a walk for a while. I wanted to be in cosmos garden around 15:00 to get lower position of the sun.
Anyway, I got cosmos garden around 15:00 and I found blooming season of cosmos in the garden has just started. I like to visit there within this month to shoot in full bloom.
Cosmos: PENTAX K200D + smc PENTAX-DA Fish-eye 1:3.5-4.5 10-17mm (Manual mode, f/11.0, 1/400, ISO200)
An athletic festival of an elementary school where my son goes to was held today. It was fine weather today though weather news told tomorrow will be rainy. I enjoyed my son’s running and dancing very much. The athletic festival seemed a photography event because many parents took photos with their CANON, NIKON, OLYMPUS and SONY and/or recorded with video cameras. I was the only one who took photos with PENTAX (;^_^). Anyway, my photos are so-so fall photos because athletic festival in Japan is usually held in fall.
After the athletic festival, I went to a mountain side with my partner and son to look for more fall like objects. And found these ones :D
Flying & dancing pink cosmos: PENTAX K-x + TAMRON A16 (Manual mode, f/4.0, 1/250, ISO200)
All three images were taken without tripod and were edited with iPhoto ’09.
I wanted to introduce Japanese fall to you so I selected typical flowers and view which were seen in fall here.
Red spider lily is one of my favorite flowers so I liked to choose the 2nd and the 3rd ones :)
