where there is no depth perception

Remember the Hasselblad? Well voila.
My friend said that the others were way too dark so nothing's on them. Too bad.

It was kind of intimidating to take a good shot but I got over it when those test flashes keep hurting my eyes.  There's a whole lot of math, measuring and waiting involved in this too. And who knew not smiling can be just as hard? Hmmmm...

ps #1 My heart aches for Japan and to wake up to that kind of news is crushing. I've watched documentaries about Japan's cultures, history and megastructures and I imagine myself wearing their kimonos, slashing bamboos with a katana and riding their faster-than-the-speed-of-light rollercoasters.

I know prayers can help, but reaching out for them can contribute just as much. Here's some ways how:
Visit Redcross.org or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone.
Visit Internationalmedicalcorps.org. Also, text MED to 80888 from any mobile phone to give $10
Visit Doctorswithoutborders.org
In case you might want to find someone, Google Person Finder.

ps #2 A good friend of mine just gave birth to a baby boy. I'm so happy for her. Plus, the mom is constantly reminding me to bring back something from Scotland for her baby. I'll try to find some infant-friendly toys that doesn't have any tartan prints on it. Aye?

nice shoot with your friend! it's unfortunate what happened in japan, my prayer goes to those family :(

kathifoldsfive said...

crap in hell i want a Hasselblad! i think all that math and measuring and waiting should be what measures a great photographer. nowadays, anyone with a DSLR and Adobe Photoshop can call themselves one, which just sucks coz it's like saying anyone with a enough money to buy a paintbrush and a tube of acrylic can be a Van Gogh.

thanks for sharing those links for supporting Japan, btw. it's comforting to know there's something i can do after all from way over here. :)

Awesome shoot!!

Also agree with Japan. I'm obsessed with Japanese culture so it was weird seeing it all over the news but for very different reasons. It's so, so incredibly sad. To think an earthquake isn't bad enough, a Tsunami...and then a Nuclear Radiation? I have no words to describe how awful it is.

Fun photos. Using flash is like learning how to take pictures all over again. :D
XOXO

These pictures are so beautiful
Its heart wrenching to watch the people of Japan suffering in such a way, I'm completely fascinated by Japanese culture too and it was definitely such a shock, for now all we can do is do all we can to help

Theresa said...

My heart aches for Japan as well. I have some friends there and now they might be evacuating. I pray they get this radiation thing under control so everyone stays safe.
