Take Slowly… at Busy Shibuya!!


Shibuya is busy place.  Many people walking in haste.
This time, I tried slow shutter photos at Shibuya to express busy scene.

Here is famous Shibuya crossing.

I set my camera shutter speed 1/8~1/13, manual focus.
During waiting signal,I focused 2,3m far place.
After signal changed, I started walking and taking photos.
I did not see finder.Because people will be surprised.
So my camera was on my body. I wanted to take natural scene.
I walked crossing again and again.
I took many photos. But my favorites are only below.
This way is so difficult. But it’s interesting. Because I can’t predict results.
Blur makes beautiful effects and atmosphere. Those are like dream.

Lovers in summer lights.

And here is inside of Shibuya station.
Famous work by Japanese artist Taro Okamoto. Its title is “Myth of Tomorrow”.
Of course,I see finder this time.But I wanted to make blur on pedestrian’s faces.
So I used slow shutter again.

Slow shutter photos make concentration to stopping object in the photo.
So this is one of effective way.
