Megumi Munakata

Megumi Munakata is absolutely lovely and quirky. I was so happy to have arranged this shoot with her while I was spending my holidays in Japan. It was her birthday a few days before we shot so I decided to do the shoot atΒ the Godzilla head in Shinjuku. The rocks there were such a perfect texture that I had to use them. What I didn’t tell her is that we had to go to a fancy cafe and share a tiramisu first in order to get in. Happy Birthday, Megumi! I had a lot of fun working with the harsh light, but the crazy updraft of wind was a little overbearing at times. We dealt with it though, but unfortunately the weather was so hot that my batteries sort of died on me before we could get any shots with Godzilla. Oh well… Fujifilm you really have to weatherproof your cameras. Olympus is running the gamut on that field!

Anyway, here are the photos from our shoot!
