It's been 19 days since Brian and I have been back in the good ol' USA, and as expected, the reverse culture shock syndrome is setting in.
It was tough for the first week, we kept saying, "In Japan bla-bla-bla...". But as they say, LIFE GOES ON.
Anyway, one of the hardest things about moving is starting your business again. In my case this is photography. As much as I want to keep doing my portrait photography business ASAP, I've decided to postpone it until everything is settled in because finding a studio, registering the LLC, and doing the promo aren't easy.
But photography is sort of a part of my soul now, I NEED to take pictures - the beautiful or conceptual ones :)
I have a pretty long list of conceptual pictures I want to do, and one of them is the levitation series photoshoot.
I actually did this about 4 years ago before we left for Japan, but at that time photography was just part of my 'hobby', and my skill was.. umh.. basic, plus I had no website or blog!
Long story short, I contacted Lam asking him to do this levitation series again - yep, 4 years ago he was my model for the levitation pictures :) I'm so so glad that Lam is taking his undergraduate school in the Seattle University, and more so when he said YES for doing this project with me! :)
Aaaaand.. Last weekend, I met with Lam, and did our first levitation series photoshoot. The theme's "Shopping in Uwajimaya" :) I didn't take a lot of pictures at Uwajimaya, as I had not found my 'mojo' yet (LOL), but well.. here are some pictures we got at Uwajimaya.
We already have a plan for our next levitation series photo, since this will be my monthly project photoshoot :)
PS: These were all made in the camera, no photoshop or whatsoever :)
