So I recently got into Japanese style photography after getting bored of premade app filters in smartphones. I got to fool around with editing the photos in this post. Still can’t really get the desired effect, probably because my photos aren’t ‘white’ (so racist!). Japanese photography is all about the white space, high exposure, clean and simple set up. Maybe one day I’ll paint my future house white just to get this effect.
Here’s a test. Any success?
Then my pwetty niece came, and I got a few pretty snapshots of her.
I quite like the following photo. The lighting direction was good, by pure luck.
Aaaaaanyways, remember this post where I fan-girled about the Traveler’s Notebook and wanted to make my own version of MTN? Well I tried with fake leather, and failed miserably. I couldn’t get real leather and fake leather would had to do, but it ended up badly and I couldn’t bear to use that shit. So I allowed myself to splurge on the real thang TEEHEE *broke for the next few months*
I got mine from Tabiyo. They also sell refills and other accessories to compliment the book *goodbye $$*
The package was nicely wrapped and Tabiyo was kind enough to include some tapes and postcards
I’ve been using the book for 2 months-ish now, and currently my book looks like this. Taadaa~
I made all the refills myself because being a student doesn’t give me the privilege to spend that much money. I was pretty addicted tho. Gave me comfort knowing that almost everything inside the book was made by yours truly.
A very good friend got this Totoro bookmark clip from Hong Kong. SQUEEEELSSSS
And another shot that I tried to photoshop to get the Japanese style effect.
