Italian photographer deeply in love with Japan, I share my photos (in Japanese shashin) and my experiences in Japan. I love Japanese art, culture, literature, music, tradition, food, people, elegance and mostly, beautiful women.
I like to shoot photos with natural light, but this time, was Winter and cloudy outside, I used two photoflood lightbulbs, one behind the fusuma, the sliding door covered in white rise paper and the other bounced on a white sheet. I do not use fast iso because I like to keep some movement in the frame, I shoot with long lens wide open to use shallow focus, bochen effect (as trendy people say).
The cup, the bamboo whisk and a little spoon ready for the tea ceremony, the Chanoyu, below the iron kettle where boil the water to make tea, placed over a charcoal fire and the water ladle in bamboo too.
