Environmental Portrait
100mm/f2.8 macro lens; Fujichrome Provia 100; AP @ f2.8; flash compensation -1.5; hand held; Minolta Dimage Dual II, Photoshop. Mid February is the blooming time of "ume no hana" (plum flowers) in Osaka, Japan. I set my lens at f2.8 and selected my focus on my subject to make the blurring foreground and background. I wanted to make the whole image more 3 dimensional so I decided to use my flash at -1.5 output to light up the flowers of foreground.

Thank you all for the great comments! I traveled in the Kansai area of Japan for 3 months by myself. I really like the country and people live there. I realized that many Japanese love photography! ... To me, communicating with the subjects and catching images with "stories" are so important to my style.

Great photo. I think itīs very interesting to see photos showing other photographer working.
I liked too much the way you did this photo, showing the the photographer among a pink fog of cherry tree flowers. Composition is very good, no centralized but I would prefer if you placed the photographer by the right side of the photo.
