Instead of a photographing next to some bucolic lake with Mt. Fuji in the background, I found myself in the underground parking lot of the beautiful Palace Hotel.  The challenge here was lighting.  Sure I could have used long exposures but the quality of the lighting was abysmal.  As usual I had two Einstein strobes a silver parabolic reflector, diffuser, and a boom arm pole.  As for camera, I had my Hasselblad H4D-50 with three lenses, so no feeling sorry for me if I couldn’t make something interesting.  In total I spent about an hour in the parking, the following are a sampling of some of the images I created.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”605,606,607,608″ img_size=”552×414″ column_number=”2″ grayscale=”no” images_space=”gallery_without_space”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
