Chichibu Line – Into The Wilds III

From a semi-recent day trip to Chichibu, Saitama, Japan.

Nagatoro Station and surrounds.

_DSF4835 _DSF4837 _DSF4845 _DSF4851X100s. All are pretty much chronological and shot with Toy Camera Advanced Filter Mode & with kinda minimal post (exposure, levels, & maybe some shadow enhancement in Capture One and saved as TIF, and then similar or just hitting “Auto” in the Basic panel in Lightroom – which actually adds up to a lot in terms of the final impact).

Chichibu Line – Into The Wilds

On the Chichibu line yesterday, into the wilds. Decided quite early that I was getting better results with square format. Also, while I understand all the criticisms of faux toy camera modes and recognise their intuitive validity,* I still find I really like the way Fujifilm does it, so decided to use that too. These and all that follow are pretty much chronological & with minimal post (kinda – deliberate exposure, levels, & maybe some shadow enhancement in Capture One and saved as TIF, and then similar or just hitting “Auto” in the Basic panel in Lightroom – which actually adds up to a lot in terms of the final impact).

* i.e. like many things that seem to make sense on the face of it, I don’t really think they are valid on examination

The Japan We Know And Love I – Train Time

There are certain shared experiences almost all of us have in Japan. One of them is the train commute. This is part of my ongoing series not so much of trains, but of trying to relate to the nerdy types who take photos of them. They are concerned with documenting the existence, I am concerned with documenting the experience.
