If you are shooting with a lens that is slower than an aperture of 2.8 at night, you are screwed. There is nothing more frustrating than using a zoom lens at night which has only a maximum aperture of 3.5 or so.
Night lights are beautiful, and the illuminations they give off as well as the shadows they project truly make nighttime street photographs special. Not only that, but if you want to capture static images, shooting with illuminated lights will allow you to capture images with a much faster shutter speed. Many people are naturally afraid of shooting during the night, due to worries about getting mugged or having their camera stolen. Don’t just go to all the touristy spots – try to get ‘behind the scenes’ and ‘real life’ scenes. Black and white is often where it’s at with street photography but at times colourful situations arise and can really make a shot – be on the look out for these. Sometimes the best thing you can do is to get close to your subject – this can be a little confronting but will produce powerful images. Often we try to avoid shooting into the sun and the shadows that direct sunlight can produce – in street photography breaking these ‘rules’ can lead to great shots. Street photography is not all about spontaneity – if you see a scene with potential don’t be afraid to keep coming back to it until you get the shot. The street is a place of movement – to capture it and still get sharp shots make sure your shutter speed is fast enough. People can be suspicious of street photographers  ( not so much in Buenos Aires but definitely in other destinations) and sometimes you’ll inevitably find yourself in hot water. While Osaka is a massive city of nearly 18 million people, getting around the city is surprisingly easy. Osaka's subway system is colored coded with lines that intersect throughout the city in a logical format. Here's a helpful Japanese phrase you can use when you get lost (which you probably will): [Name of destination] wa doko des ka?
Also, if you ever find yourself hopelessly lost, look for a policeman or a police box (koban).
What makes Osaka Castle one of my favorite castles is that you can enter the park and go right up to the castle without paying a dime.
Stretching along DA? tonbori is its famous canal where you may be lucky enough to witness Osaka's rabid Hanshin Tiger baseball fans launching themselves into the water after a victory. If fish and the underwater world is your thing, be sure to check out the Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan). While in the area be sure to visit the Tempozan market and the massive Osaka Ferris Wheel to get some great shots of the city.
There's a saying in Osaka that Tokyoites will spend their last yen on clothing but people in Osaka will spend it on food.
If you happen to time your visit during Osaka's cherry blossom season (usually mid April), you will be blown away by the Sakura season.
Prime locations include Nishinomaru Park near Osaka Castle and Sakuranomiya Park with its nearly 5000 cherry trees that line the Osaka river. While it's not necessary to learn much Japanese before visiting, any effort you put into learning a few Japanese phrases will be greatly appreciated.
The ROUTE 66 RV Network presents the Larry Coker Commitment Award annually to a member retailer, who best reflects the long-time commitment of Larry Coker, who was a revered ROUTE 66 associate. Apart from providing the award, ROUTE 66 also donates the annual network membership fee of that dealership to a college education fund to support Larry’s daughter, who is currently a senior in a high school. Bill White stated that the ROUTE 66 vision and strategy are completely in sync with the United RV brand in the press release.
Earlier Walnut Ridge Family RV Center in New Castle, Indiana and Colerain RV Center in Cincinnati, Ohio received this Larry Coker Commitment Award.


There were several of you who mentioned an article about how to shoot street photography at night. Nowadays digital cameras have amazing high-ISO capabilities, so don’t be afraid to bump up your ISO. If you see the image above by Garry Winograd, he is able to beautifully capture an image of a man with a patch over his face, accompanied by his beautiful companion in his top-down convertible in Los Angeles. There have even been times in which I accidentally captured motion at night due to a slower shutter speed–but much preferred the outcome. When first shooting street photography, I used a tripod at night a few times thinking that it would aid my night images.
It makes focusing a hell of a lot easier and has helped me capture images in which I had only a split of a second to focus. Regardless of what type of autofocusing system your camera has, the technology is still much too slow and inaccurate. When shooting street photography at night, try to go to urban city-centers, where people are abundant and flashing lights are everywhere. It’ll make you less obtrusive and you will be able to move around for the best shot quickly. Especially in Buenos Aires, where accessibility is a significant asset to seeing and shooting what you want, make use of the fact you can venture off the beaten path and not get arrested for it. Billboards, signs, graffiti and other visual elements can really make a statement in a shot.
Or if this proves difficult, stay until people around seem to be comfortable with your presence.
Always be able to eject your memory card from your camera to avoid being asked to actually delete anything. It's helpful if you know the exit number you'll need when leaving the station as some stations have a ton of exits. Now, chances are, you won't have a chance of understanding what the person is say when they answer, but if you've come off a station in the vicinity of where you need to go, just watch for which way they point to get the general direction. This famous castle played an important role in the unification of Japan under the Nobunaga and Tokugawa shogunate. The street is lined with restaurants and stores and many of Osaka's tourist landmarks can be found here including Glico Man, Kuidaore Taro (the drum beating clown) and the Kani Doraku Crab.
Come here in the evening to witness the strange and unusually dressed Japanese teens that use this as a meeting place or for trying to pull foreigners into their respective clubs and hostess bars. You'll be shooting through the glass of the ferris wheel cars so use a rubber lens hood to cut down on reflection. Osaka is famous in Japan for its love of food and you'll find plenty of wild and delicious food to photograph. If you want to get away from some of the crowd, the park near Tempozan Market is a wonderful location to photograph these beautiful trees. Along with learning how to say thank you and ask for directions to the bathroom, here are a few phrases custom made for the visiting photographer. The following phrases get increasingly more detailed and slightly more difficult as they go on.
Here you're basically saying "Photo OK?"? It's a pretty simple phrase that most Japanese will have no difficulty understanding. Be warned, however, the person you are asking may think you're fluent in Japanese when using this sentence.

In the background, you can see another car whizzing by, which gives you a dynamic feel of the image. This allows your camera to collect much more available light during the night, which will allow you to get quicker shutter speeds. Sure you can shoot at night with a zoom lens with an aperture of 2.8, but zoom lenses like that are often too bulky and heavy to shoot street photography with anyways. However, I do not discount the merits of focusing manually when shooting street photography, especially when shooting from the hip. Switch your camera to focusing manually, and you will have far more control over focusing and will be able to focus much quicker in general. Take for example this great post on The Online Photographer in which Corinne Vionnet stacked hundreds of images of tourists who took photos in the same spot. Let your curiosity lead you and capture amazing images. Equally, look-out for poles coming out of people’s heads, distracting actions, and unwanted light. I also think it can be fun to experiment with slower shutter speeds on the street – capture the movement as blur. Or if the scene turns really sour, at least you put that card in your pocket and saved the images! But since JR Stations also intermingle with trains leaving for destinations outside the city, the train platforms can sometimes be a little tricky to navigate.
Although the original castle has been replaced by a concrete reconstruction, the castle and surrounding park are filled with photo opportunities. The problem with this basic question is that some people may think you are asking to take a photo of the area or would like them to take your photograph. The ROUTE 66 RV Network presented the award at the Overland Park at the recent 2011 Rally in San Antonio, Texas. He continued, “That meant participating in the full suite of ROUTE 66 offerings and customer benefits.
I love shooting at night, because I feel that is when you can capture the true soul of the urban jungle–when street lights illuminate and people are on the prowl.
When shooting during the day, I often even add grain to my images to give it a more urban feel. Without that motion blur, the image may have felt much too static and wouldn’t have had the same effect.
If you shoot aperture-dependent mode or automatic mode, try using an ISO of 200-400 to capture motion. But when using auto-focus or using manual-focus are both options you have when shooting during the day (and light is plentiful). Shooting street photography at night allows for much more mysterious scenes and images than shooting during the day.
You get all the excitement and charm of the country with less of the smothered-in-bone-crushing-crowds and the being-hopelessly-lost feelings that accompany visits to Tokyo. For example, one map may show directions with the north point up (as is common) while another map on the street may display with West or another equally confusing direction pointing up. Not only that, but it slowed me down and prevented me from capturing the decisive moments I wanted to at night.
Today, we're going to showcase some photography from around Osaka, along with some tips if you're planning on a visit.
