Colors of Japan Photographer Chieko Uchida Camera used Caplio R6
Photographer's comments
The Caplio R6 is the only digital camera I own. I like it because it is light and can easily be used for close-up photography.
The mountain shadows of winter are a monochrome world so I had to work hard to find beautiful color.
I took this picture because I was attracted by the charming and pretty crepe fabric pattern.
Reason for selection
A kimono made by a Japanese expert craftsman using traditional methods. The color tones and design combine with the two cloth balls in a well-balanced image illuminated by gentle sunlight. And best of all is the way that the picture is created by focusing on the subtle tactile quality and color pattern of the crepe fabric. In a situation in which it would have been a mistake to move closer and a mistake to move farther away, the photographer got it right, and so probably has the skill to carefully consider composition before taking the shot.
