If you've always wanted to take stunning pictures at night, this Experience is for you. You're coming to this modern and illuminated city, so why not using this opportunity to learn night photography! I will show you around in the animated areas of central Tokyo (Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya depending on how long we spend in each location) and we'll take night shots while I'll teach you how to do so. In order to give you the best, I don't take more than 2 Guests per day (which explains the cost of the Experience). I'll provide you with a tripod for the duration of the Experience, but please bring a remote for your camera. We'll start by 30 min theoretical teaching then we'll hit the streets! If you want to make long exposures effects, you'll need filters, contact me beforehand. As a recommended option after the Experience, we can have a 1 hour class of Adobe Lightroom so that your pictures will really look incredible (the post processing in night photography can improve a lot your pictures). If the date you wish is not on the calendar, please send me a message and I'll open the calendar for you at this date. NB: from Nov 18th to 30th , I'll do all my Experiences in Kyoto.
Professional photographer living in Japan for nearly 20 years, I'm having my own studio (http://www.the-photo-studio.com) and I'm also taking a lot of night photography (http://www.martin-rousseau.com check the Kyoto night shots). I'm also Kyoto official photographer (check http://www.visit-kyoto.com to see my pictures) and Nikon Photographer. Many of my Airbnb Experience Guests "Tokyo Downtown Photo Shoot and Learn" asked me if I could teach them night photography too, so I created this Experience.
We'll start in a coffee shop in Shinjuku for setting your camera and do little theoretical explanations about night shooting then we'll hit the streets of Shinjuku by night with very colorful areas! If we have time we'll explore other areas such as Shibuya.
