Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Quick Peek

I have long been captivated by Japanese-style photography. There is no official definition of such a style, but it has some instantly recognizable characteristics … desaturated, slightly over-exposed, pale tone, faint blue tint, soft background. Usually moments of daily life or common objects. Nothing dramatic. The atmosphere or emotion is the key.

This is my first conscious attempt to shoot with this style and also in response to this week’s Peek theme.

      Thanks, Mabel. It has been almost a month since your last blog post and sometimes I intentionally visit your site to check whether I missed it in the WordPress reader, heehee.

    I would not be able to describe the style or if indeed it is in line with Japenes style photography. What I saw in the first palce was the emotion (and I am not a cat person) and secondly that you can can “peek” right through the cornea – excellent shot Jeremy

    This Japanese photo style is incredibly beautiful and well achieved, simple and soft, yet elegant and detailed. It takes extraordinary skill and artistic eye to achieve it. That crystal clear eye, wow… Thank you for the post, Jeremy! πŸ™‚

        My great pleasure, Jeremy. I know you are busy at work. You’d get the top hits if you have time to “social” on the blogosphere.
        I’m not a photographer by any standard, but do know what it take to capture photos like you do.
        Thank you so much, Jeremy for finding time to post to share your awesome photos! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
