Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others. SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years.

You can view Simon's work at http://www.simonbephotography.com/  and www.facebook.com/simonbphotography Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes. Thank for taking this on Simon!

Typhoon Hagibis aftermath in Futako-Tamagawa

While in Japan recently, I stopped in Futako-Tamagawa in southern Tokyo by the Tama river, where typhoon Hagibis, considered to be the strongest tropical storm in the region since 1958, hit hard.
I took pictures for documentation's sake and would like to share some of them with you. They speak for themselves otherwise, I believe.

Great documentary photos. The colours, particularly in bright sunlight, show a clear end to the destruction. What camera/film did you use?

Thanks for sharing, those are striking photos. Typhoon #19 really wreaked havoc. The town I live in Nagano was fortunately spared, but just one valley over the Chikuma river flooded and messed up the apple crop and a whole section of town...

Leica M2 & 35mm f2 Ultron for most of them, M4 & 35mm f2.5 Color-Skopar PII for two of them, and Fuji Superia 400.
