Nishi Shinjuku? I work there! Where exactly was this pic as I`ve never seen this street before. Are you sill in Tokyo?

This is right next to Omoide-yokocho, the well known little alley with tons of yakitori and horumon shops. It's the adjacent street next to the tracks. And I am still in Tokyo. In fact, I live here. :D

What do you do?

I'm a game programmer. Before that, I was an eikaiwa instructor at Gaba.

Being a gaijin in Japan is definitely a small world. I'd love to shoot with you! I need to learn so much, I'm a bit of a n00b. Thanks!

Hello! I really love how this image looks colour-wise...it's so smooth, calm, and "Japanese". Would you mind me asking how you got the colours to be so soft and pale-ish?

Hi, thanks! :D It's pretty much straight from the camera. I set my Nikon to Vivid mode, which basically increases the saturation and contrast a bit. Then in post, I boosted the colors a bit more, used curves to give the image more of a green tint, bring out the reds. The effect is mostly just great light. :D

This is really interesting. The fact that she's the only person surrounded by all these advertisements is actually kind of eerie. On the one hand, she seems lost, but on the other hand, her flashy outfit makes her fit in. Can I just say that I love the fact that you rarely shoot people straight on? It adds to the feeling of anonymity, and usually it really bothers me to shoot people that way, so way to do something different!

Thanks! I kinda try to protect privacy (not really, I often don't) because it's valued very much in Japan in particular. However, sometimes it's necessary to show a face, but I think you're right that this photo conveys various ideas about her and her story without showing her identity. :D
