My last trip to Japan (November), I was in Osaka shooting some models there for a "beauty school".
For those interested in how I do things: this was shot with a Canon 1DS MarkII. A 70-200mm f2.8 AF IS
Shot at ISO320 f2.8 @ 1/250
I had a light stand with 2 speedlights (tripped by a wizard on camera) behind an umbrella. I had two assistants watch traffic so I didn't get run over. The hair guy can be seen on the right of the frame I'm in.
The photo of the girl on the right is the finished image.
I added a bit of contrast and saturation in photoshop in post.
