Cityscape Osaka

Winter is a great time to photography a city at night.  As many people are still in the office towers, they are brightly lit from the inside.  A tripod is essential for long exposure shots.

Interior II Wide Angle

Wide angle lenses are great for interior photography and enabled me to show the best features of this apartment in Osaka.
However, extra care needs to be taken to minimize distortion and ensure that everything lines up well.  Allowing the vertical and horizontal architectural features to add impact to the photograph.

Taken on a whim I really like how this shot divides the bedroom from the living room quite starkly.
