Haruka – Photographing Into Light, 1997

Haruka in Contrast Light, 1997 Japan, Tokyo Province (Prefecture) – 8×10 film Nude Studies

It is often taught to take photographs with the light coming from behind or the sides. I found that a nice effect could be achieved by shooting straight into the light, as long as the light source was not visible to the lens.

Haruka was my girlfriend. I met her on the Shinkansen.

Awoke with Haruka, when she came out of bathroom, I had camera all set up. To my surprise she agreed.
