If you’ve been following my Instagram posts, you’ll know that I’ve been in Tokyo for a few days now, chasing the beautiful architecture this town has to offer (with fairly long stops to enjoy fresh seafood) and if there’s nothing else I get to make a good picture of, I’m happy at least I got a proper shot of the beautiful Dentsu Building in Shiodome.
Ever since my first visit to Tokyo a couple of years ago, I’ve had a bit of a fascination with this building. I find it so elegant and so surprising. There are certain angles from which the building appears as nothing more than a thin glass wafer, while from other angles it shows with a huge facade, full of moving glass elevators. Last time I was here I only had the 24mm tilt-shift lens (that was the widest tilt-shift Nikon had at the time), but now I have the 19mm which is more appropriate for the size of the building. As a bonus (thanks to Nikon Middle East) I also have with me the brand new Nikon D850 which has been a pleasure to use so far. There are a few very nice changes from the D800 / D810 and of course, there’s the 45MP resolution. More on that in future posts!Technical details | Aperture: ƒ/8 | Camera: NIKON D850 | Focal length: 19mm | ISO: 100 | Shutter speed: 1/125s
