Another behind the scenes video from Shibuya Crossing. Music not added in post. That’s exactly what it sounded like.
I have to say I was missing my Canon 5DMKII during these night temple shots. Especially since my travel companion, Scott, was shooting HDRs with his on a fancy new Gitzo tripod. My pangs of regret slowly drifted away when he got hassled by tourists, locals, and guards. No one notices or cares when you are taking photos with your phone, but you attract every man and his dog with a big fancy dSLR.
I knew certain shots would be challenging on an iPhone, but that’s the whole point of this trip: Taking the best photos with the camera you’ve got. Not everyone has an expensive pro camera, but I believe that you can get great shots with whatever camera you own.
Drink vending machines are everywhere in Tokyo. The awesome thing about some machines is they sell both hot and cold drinks. I have been freezing in Japan because I under packed for colder areas since I’m spending most of this trip in hot countries. I had to buy two jackets just to stay warm. In this photo I am wearing 7 layers. I feel like the Stay Puff marshmallow man.
Just outside the subway station.

Making bad weather work for you in photos is always tough. When it rains there are two things that always seem to make great photos:
1. Shooting through windows covered with raindrops;
2. Shooting lights reflecting on wet pavement.
I’d like to add 3. Shooting against mirrors with raindrops!
Insane alley way with electronic bits & bobs in Akihabara. I could spend all day poking in these shops.
