MESSAGE

Carrying the B008 along, I went to Kyoto with a model on a three-day trip. The total volume of shots taken over those three days reached 150 GB. I made a point of going there without obtaining any advance information about Kyoto, leaving shooting location plans almost entirely up to the coordinator. This method seems to have produced good results through the creation of spontaneous three-way collaborations between the assigned locations, the model, and myself.

The overall story that we had established for this shoot was that of a couple who are visiting Kyoto together. As they enjoy the wonderland ambiance of the city's sights, their relationship gradually evolves to that with a more sophisticated quality. Before long, my lens became the eyes of this young woman's partner who lovingly gazes upon her. Thanks in part to the fact that the model is a stage actor, I believe we were able to successfully draw out and perform this kind of inner drama.

Feedback on having used 18-270mm (Model B008)

The greatest physical advantages of this lens are that it is light and compact. Normally, it is not possible for a single lens to have "high-power zoom" and also be "lightweight and compact." I call the B008 my "ninja lens" as it enables me to quickly steal shots of the model's expressions even from far away.
