Behind the Scenes in Japan

New Video – Behind the Scenes in Japan

Here’s one I just edited together from my trip last week! It shows what happened while I was taking a few different photos around Mount Fuji. The video has a bunch of different tips and tricks, shows how I set up my camera, how I change lenses, how I struggle with putting on the lens hood, and lots of other goodies. Enjoy! 🙂

Daily Photo – Approaching Mount Fuji from the Old Village

What a perfect place this is!

I’ve been to Japan many times, but I never had the chance to visit Mt. Fuji! This time, Tom and I made a point to do it, and this was one of our fist stops. You can see much more about it in the video above!

    This is a great shot,looks just like the old villages in Jeju Island Korea. Cleanliness , well what can I say, they are ahead of the rest of the world in Japan. Nice video sounds like you don’t have much luck with your camera gear one thing i do like is your tripod it looks solid but to big to lob around must be heavy.

  • Good Lord man! When you wake up everyday is Mt. Fuji, or the Louvre, or The Remarkables just sitting at your feet?! This shot looks like Disney built it. So perfect.

    Awesome shot Trey! Glad you finally got to go there! The video is super great too! 🙂

  • I think this is actually a screenshot from the Konquest mode of Mortal Kombat – Armageddon on the PS2……only kidding!
    What an incredible scene – I envy the people of this place who wake up every day to this epic scenery – awesome!

    haha it is like that background!

  • Great photo but there’s something I find unsettling about there not being any people in this photo. Don’t know why but it just feels empty.

  • Magnificent shot!
