  1. You were saying on Twitter that you biked over to Biwako. Very smart decision. It’s a little bit of a hike (and a pain to get over the mountains) but very worth it to see the lake.

    I also spent part of the long weekend outside. Mrs. Adamu and I hiked around Hannou-shi in Saitama which was a very easy but fun hike. Pictures from that trek are forthcoming.

  2. Do you mind if I ask how much you’ve spent on photography equipment? I’ve always been interested in taking pictures, myself, but after a not-so-pleasant experience with a SLR camera, I’m not so sure how much more I should actually invest in the hobby.

    Also, have you done any work with HDRI photography at all?

  3. I haven’t done any HDR work, although it might be fun to try some time. I estimate I have around US$2500-3000 worth of camera gear at the moment.

    Should I do a post detailing all of it, with examples of the kinds of photos you can get with each lens?

    I would never ask you to spend so much time just to satisfy my curiosity. 🙂 I’m sure if I actually spent some time researching on the net I could probably get a good idea of steps I could take to become an amateur photographer. I’ve just been extremely impressed with the few shots you’ve posted on this site, and was wondering roughly how much money it would take to achieve similar results (not taking actual skill – or my lack thereof – into account).

    And you might give HDR photography a shot. I’ve dabbled in the process using my digital camera, but I’m mainly using them in computer graphics as light sources. HDR images can achieve results similar to this Hamaotsu shot, but miss the subtleties of light and color that you produced.

    NO.
    try and stick to semi-interesting content if you can.

  6. Ouch, anonymous! Thanks for being a jackass. Perhaps you can learn the magic of browser scrolling and not clicking to avoid articles you don’t like.

    And I apologize in advance to Roy for my provocation of this obvious troll.
