A trip to the islands of Yakushima and Tanegashima at the beginning of fall provided an opportunity to visit one of the most picturesque landscapes Japan has to offer. My favourite photos however whether back home in Canada or in Japan, are taken simply by pointing my camera up into the night sky.
My longest video thus far with over 1500 km driven for footage around Kyushu and about 2 months to film everything, hope you enjoy!
For camera nerds:
Sony 50mm F1.8
Sony 16-50mm F3.5-5.6
Rokinon 12mm F2.0 (most used in this video)
Premiere Pro CS6

Recently finishing his degree in Physics at the University of Calgary, Joseph can be found either hiking the Canadian Rockies, playing guitar for elementary children or setting up his tripod to take photos of the Milky Way. By moving to Omura, Nagasaki-ken as an ALT for local high schools, he hopes to find a second home where he can explore the landscapes and picturesque moments that Japan has to offer.
