A Tokyo Retrospective and Flipboard
Today we have a new photo from downtown Tokyo. By now, you have probably figured out that I just can’t get enough of these downtown shots. Each angle is nice and different in its own way. Sometimes I like to freeze the action, and sometimes I like to let it flow. It totally depends on my mood when I am shooting.
While I am there, I usually have a pretty good idea of how I want to execute the post-processing. It changes the way I take the shots. For example, if I want the action frozen, I’ll crank up the ISO so that the people don’t drag across the shutter too much. I have my 5 exposures so that the +2 (the longest) fires first. So I know if the middle exposure (the anchor, I call it) has a shutter that is open too long. I can just hear it. If it feels too long, I double the ISO and it halves the shutter speed of the anchor. This is always my action/reaction when shooting in aperture priority.
So, after the new photo of downtown Tokyo, I have a little surprise from Flipboard!

So, this week we are featured on Flipboard! How cool is that? If you don’t know what Flipboard is, and you have an iPad, well then you need to know! It’s amazing living magazine that alters and flexes as Twitter feeds change the shape and content of the magazine. It’s totally free, and so is the Stuck In Customs channel on there! Enjoy!
And now, here are a bunch of other favorites from around Japan!
