Done! Finally after 7 years that I wanted to go there I did it! With a group of nice friends finally I went to Tsukiji fish market to see the Tuna`s auction and these are the photos I selected for you. Everything started the day before at night when to be ready in the early morning to get the pass for the auction, we spent the night at karaoke. After that before 4 am we moved to Tsukiji to the fish information center where you have to register to get access to the venue. Only 120 people admitted and even at 4.15 when we arrived more than 60 people got their pass…..Soon all the 120 available space finished….. Do you want to go there? Well go early!really!!!! The “tour” is just a 25 min tour where you have the opportunity to see the auction. Everything is really fast and like a “dirge” they repeat the price of each fish. People raise there hands to show their offers and the auction`s staff try to rise the price up.

“30,30,30,30,30,30 ok 33,33,33,33,35,35,35” This dirge repeated fast and faster!

As usual before the shooting I searched on the net for some infos about settings but honestly nothing there. Me, as usual, my Canon 7D+18-135 efs with ISO of 2000 and an average value of f7.1 and shutter speed of 30-50

These is the selection. Of 110 photos just 9 were good enough to proceed with the photoshop fix. Of course, everyone took in raw. The fix process was quite complex trying to give more sharpness at the photo and trying to keep a “darker” atmosphere

Enjoy the gallery and Stay Click
