This is for the GR blog theme “Living thing” of track back project. *That was shot in last year. Yes, I like macro mode of the Ricoh GR, because that makes a beautiful gradation in out-of-focus area. I think that is more nice than the 50mm (or near like this) macro lens of the digital SLR. Often, I shoot the butterfly by this camera, it looks like difficult, but almost the butterfly coming back and stopping during a nectar sucking so that easy to shoot. I am glad to go to shoot the grass or the flower garden with the Ricoh GR.
I am interested in documenting and introducing the world to traditional Japanese culture. My main motif are the Japanese traditional festival and the environment. The characteristic of my works are simplification of the subject, exaggerated perspective, the color control with a feature, and that is to use as reference the characteristics of Ukiyo-e and I have named to "Digital Ukiyo-e(Registered trademark)". I began photographing at the age of 13 and belongs to The Photographic Society of Japan.
