experimental—oil slick photography I've always loved oil slicks on pavement. One day, noticing some meltwater in a shopping mall parking lot, I decided to start taking some photos.
experiments—macro photography During 2002, I learned of the trick of reverse-mounting a lens for macro photography. It's an interesting technique.
scavenger hunts This is a photography challenge in which each contestant shoots photos for the same set of themes. Each theme is expressed in a single word. There are 26 words, one for each letter of the alphabet.
experiments—moon photography Photographing the moon is a bit tricky. It's deceptively bright, and requires much less exposure than you'd imagine.
experiments—basketball photography I picked up a used SMC 135mm lens for my Pentax DSLR for about ¥7000. I decided that it's equivalent 200mm focal length would be great for sports photography. And because I belonged to a casual basketball group, I decided that my friends and colleagues would become my guinea pigs. The results were pleasing.
