On this workshop we will be investigating the neighbourhood of Anamoriinari, down by Haneda Airport, using macro lenses, close-up filters and extension-tubes.
The idea of the workshop is to look at the various techniques for getting closeups and to produce a set of photos that tell a story of the neighbourhood through some of its tiniest details.
The area we are visiting has a wonderful kitsune [fox] shrine, which is near our starting point at the Keikyu Line station.
From there we will walk through some characterful backstreets and down to the bayside. We'll then walk along the bayside where there are various interesting subjects for macro, including old fishing boats, small sections of shell beach, trees, scrub, harbour wall and general seaside detritus.
Meeting place: Exit [there is only one] of Anamoriinari Station. This is on the Haneda Airport branch of the Keikyu Line.
Meeting time: 10.30hrs
Approximate finishing time: 17:30hrs
Approximate distance of route: 4kms
Map of route and key waypoints: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=z81uVSUthvuI.kOjfH1PtTsTg
