Some very interesting long exposure shots by Celine Ramoni taken from the New Transit Yurikamome (an automated guideway train that connects Shimbashi to Toyosu, passing through the artificial island of Odaiba in Tokyo, Japan) passing through the Rainbow Bridge.
Japan was the “trigger” of my interest in photography (I lived there for 4 years). During my travels, I discovered so many unique and magnificent landscapes that I felt the need to capture and retain these exceptional moments that I was living. I was astonished by the high number of people that were carrying professional photo gear compared to those in my own country. This apparently large popularity of photography further raised my curiosity.
I bought my first SLR one year after my arrival in Japan. The first few months seemed difficult and my pictures disappointing. But by learning a few basic concepts, I gained a tremendous freedom in the variety of pictures I could take.
I have rather simple gear such as Nikon D7000, Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX and Nikon 18-105mm VR. I mostly shoot landscape and cityscapes. I usually use the aperture mode because I like to emphasis on the DOF of my photos. For the long exposure shots though I usually use the manual mode. I don’t do lots of post processing and most of my photos are almost straight out of the camera.
