Photography with Ho-kago Tea Time!!

Hey guys! I am super excited to share you guys the K-On themed photography that I did with my set of H K-On! Tea Time in Wonderland Ichiban Kuji set by Banpresto.


I absolutely fell in love with this series of dolls when I found them in Japan and I went about scouring Electric Town for the full collection. I was inspired to come up with a separate little story and I started with Mugi. My last shots with Azusa were more challenging because I didn’t know what to do with her! In the end, I changed it up with a K-OnXMy Neighbour Totoro Crossover. Since I loved the Wonderland theme, I wanted the photo to portray Azusa stepping into Wonderland (or in this case, Totoro’s world), for the first time. I tried to keep things sweet and fairytale-like overall and played around with a few of the coloured filters which was especially prominent in bringing out the blue in Mugi’s eyes. The only touch-ups were in some brightness and a bit contrast as always.

All of these photos were taken with a D3100 basic Nikon DSLR and an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. Normally I don’t use the kit lens a lot because I’m really into extreme close-ups or super wide- fisheye distortions with my shots. The 18-55mm range is usually a family gathering, snapshots for fun kind of lens for me.  Ideally I would prefer my Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro however that lens is currently under maintenance and I won’t be picking that up till at least tomorrow.

Despite the change-up in lens styles, I’m really pleased with how these photos turned out and I hope you guys like them!!

Today has been a very K-On filled day, wouldn’tcha say? Thank you so much for dropping in and if you enjoyed this post remember to hit like or follow for new stuff that’s coming every day!

T&T Night Market

Hey guys! I got the chance to drop by Cherry Street to check out the T&T Night Market last weekend. I arrived earlier than I did last week for Night-it-Up so the lighting conditions are much more pleasant. With my Nikon D3100 and a sigma 17-70mm macro lens, I lasted with an 800ISO until the full dark hit. Next time I hit a night market I’m going to have to come up with more interesting and unique compositions than the classic angles.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading and I will post new content soon!
