November 2019 – It was such a great feeling to be back in Japan, having last set foot there around ten years ago. Back then I had just started on a new chapter in photography with the purchase of my first DSLR, a Canon 5D Mark II, and can still remember being overwhelmed by the sights across the country, as well as the thrill of photographing those places.
One thing I really wanted to try on this particular visit was to capture some candid night scenes around Tokyo. For this mission the Fuji X-T2 fitted with the Fujinon 23mm lens was the weapon of choice – though we did have our Canon with us, we were finding that it was being used less and less on our personal trips.
The images featured on this post are a slight departure from my usual editing process. Personally, I felt that the style chosen here works well with these scenes, taken in the districts of Ginza, Ryogoku and Asakusa.
More photos from Japan to come!
