Does it Really Contain Pimentos?

I've been meaning to take this picture for ages. As soon as I really looked at the bottle, I've been laughing every time I take a shower. Can anyone spell stock photography? What pushed me to finally take is this inspiring article about the Lin-Sanity wave sweeping the basketball world. I'm not a big fan of the sport, but the story is touching and interesting on many levels.

Softbox to camera-right, reflector to camera-left to remove most of the shadow (not all, to add a bit of tri-dimensionality).

PR-Y: The Cornerstone in Stores

Last night before my capoeira lesson I stoppee by the Standard Bookstore in Shinsaibashi to see the book in store. Standard put it on the first floor and it is pretty well located in the photobook section at the back. I had to refrain from looking around too much, there would have been too many temptations, and I'm only human after all!

Timelapse: Kyobashi

Using King Camera, I shot a quick and dirty timelapse video handhled. Since my phone was not connected to my computer, I couldn't upload at the original size. I think the result is decent anyways. Enjoy!

What is King Camera

King Camera (KC) is an Iphone app (free basic package, 99 cents for full, which includes more quick presets and no watermarks on exports) that allows some easy post-prod. It's distinctive feature are quick preset modes ((similar to Instagram)IG), but also personal manipulations. IG has the upper hand on the community aspect (KC has an IG export feature), but in my book personalisation trumps homogenization.

14km in Less than 40 Minutes

These two captures we taken less than 40 minutes apart, yet are located 14km away; I was riding my bicycle. Sweat is good for you, it contains much toxins that your body is more than happy to be rid of.
