    Yep she's a looker for sure. Dannie is not only a model she's my assistant when I'm doing shoots and she works for me doing product input for the site. She's also learning how to be a photographer as well.

    Here's one more using the same setup but with the light aimed differently so it's not as harsh.....

    Lucky you, so she's smart, skilled and attractive.

    Managed to peel out of bed at 3:30 and take some pictures of buildings and the completely empty Shinjuku Station just after dawn. Hopefully something turned out nice, will post on Sunday perhaps. Also hit 7Eleven and got me the new LEON and a bottle of Ikkomon Shochu :satisfied:

    This is off topic but I'm too lazy to sign up for a photography forum.

    What kind of camera strap do you guys use? I hate the bulky Canon ad that came with my dSLR and I'm considering the Luma Loop for travel. Anyone have any experience with it?

    Also, I want something thin (around an inch), simple, durable, and inconspicuous that I can detach easily for when I'm not traveling (e.g., shooting in a studio). Does anyone know what kind of strap Scott Schumann is using in this video? When he's walking it looks like a normal strap slung over his neck and shoulder, but he seems able to instantly detach it and use as a wrist strap as well. I think it's just a normal strap that he coils around his wrist, but then in some shots it appears to only be attached to one side of the camera body, not both like a neck strap.

    Checked the video and looks like he's using the regular strap, just turning it around so he's not a living Canon ad. That curling it around the wrist is what I usually do when carrying the camera around while it's not in the bag. I also considered the Luma Loop but so far I couldn't get myself to buy it. If you do, make sure to give me/us some form of review please.

    So here are some of the few pics I've taken when I was in Shinjuku:

    That pic made me realize that I should get a tiny tripod to carry on

    I don't have the luma loop but do have the blackrapid strap and I love it.

    I'm also pretty sure he's just coiling it around his hand and it's attached on both sides.

    Picked up two rolls of Kodak Farbwelt 200 I've had developed while I was away. One from the Minolta, one from the Canon. A bazillion of shitty exposures, as was to be expected. And two rolls of film developed on paper plus digital (only 1544 x 1024 pixel JPEGs, what a bummer) was 16,50 EUR each because the people in the shop insisted that I have to choose a paper format. Also there is a horizontal stripe on the pictures (both paper and JPEGs) where I wonder if the film is at fault or the lab, as I have it on the exposures from both cameras. Definitively have to find someone else to develop it.

    These are the somewhat nicer shots:

    PS: the Landscape shots are actually done with the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on my EOS 3. When you zoom it to 16mm it can be used on full frame.

    What's the reason for the horizon not being straight? I like the pic, but the horizon is way off.

    I have a LumaLoop and highly recommend it.

    Much more comfortable than around the neck.

    I currently have a crumpler "industry disgrace" and love the heck out of it. It's so comfy.
