This picture combines several elements that I’m trying to incorporate more of. First off, the idea of getting closer to the subject if you’re having a hard time with the picture–or photography in general. Secondly, there’s no problem that can’t be solved by throwing a sword at it. I, of course, am referring to my frustration from yesterday’s picture. So, I returned to the location today and stuck my shinai in there for good measure.
Also, I’ve been meaning to start a series of pictures that are themed around a certain object. I’d like to find a cool ball–like a mini basketball, but a cool color and no brand on it–but for now I’m just gonna use my shinai, since it is very dear to me.
