About three weeks ago I shot the opening spread for their twenty page special feature called “The New Generation of Used Camera Enjoyment” (中古カメラ新時代の遊び方). The section is all about taking advantage of the recent drop in used film camera prices, and suggestions for beginners on what to buy and use. Additionally there are several used shops suggested as places to buy cameras.
The final page is about how I go about getting content for Tokyo Camera Style, and my reasons for doing so. There is also a little part about my habit of asking to take family pictures (so that everyone can be in the shot together), and a picture of me doing just that. After I handed them back their camera, the family that I photographed was probably wondering just what the guy in the background pointing a DSLR at me was doing in both of the pictures I took for them.
This issue is available in bookstores across Japan from May 20th to June 19th, 2009.
Many thanks to the editors of Nippon Camera for this experience.
