Yoko Yoko Photo Club

Click here for todays photos


All but one of todays photos were taken with the venerable Kodak DCS Pro Back 645M.    It’s a discontinued image making monster capable of producing some of the most film-like files I have ever seen come out of a digital camera.  It’s not the fastest camera out there. In fact, it’s downright glacial in its pace of taking photographs.  But this causes me to also slow down in my image taking, and gives me pause to think about what it is I am trying to capture.  I’m sure the great medium format Mamiya glass adds a lot to the image quality, but the sensor of the Kodak back itself must be given due credit.

For those of you in the local Yokosuka/Yokohama area, you may be interested in a photo club I recently started.  You can check it out here:  www.meetup.com/YokoYoko/

This new photo club will not be taking the place of the Tokyo Camera photo club I have belonged to for years.  Rather, it is a way to get people on the Miura Peninsula/Yokohama area who are interested in photography together without having to make the trek up to Tokyo.

We have had two meetup events so far, and any member of the club can organize a gathering.  So if you are interested, then sign up and plan a day pf photo shooting.

    I’ve been following your website for almost a decade now. Your pictures and words gave me insight to a country I passionately wanted to explore…and after a trip there in 2004, your blog became a place to revisit a country I fell in love with and missed. My heart goes out to the country you capture so beautifully. I hope and wish that you are doing well.

    Lovely shots again, as always. Like the others, I too have my concerns for your safety, so I’m happy to find you are still blogging.

    I know that you have not had much time for posting lately, but I hope that you are all safe after the big earthquake. I also worry about my family and friends in Kanto and Tohoku, things are still very touch and go in many areas there.
