Tsukiji, the fish market, in a warm December morning, with 2 cameras and 2 rolls of film. A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to go to Tsukiji market to take some photos with some friends. Despite of it was pretty “late” for Tsukiji style (usually people go there at 3:30 in the morning to assist to the tuna auction), because we started our photo tour at 9am, i was surprise how many good chances for interesting shoot is still possible to find. This time i wanted to focus on people. People that spend their days at the market trying to sell the fish. People that are not used to be direct main subject of the photo. Except a couple of them to whom i asked specifically to take photos to, the others were really friendly and available to be “model” for me.
Here is a selection of the photos I did. For this shooting session i used, as i said, 2 cameras:
– Contax G1
– Ricoh R1s
both with fujicolor 100 ISO. Both cameras are equipped with autofocus, that is pretty convenient in situation like this, where time and location don:t allow you to set up easily the shoot. Even if recently i moved back to color film, I felt like for a couple of frames, the black and white was the best solution.
But here is the selection i chose. Enjoy it and Stay Click!
