Traffic Light Trails
What’s the Story?
Go beyond the glitz of the main drags and delve into the bowels of the metropolis. Explore the underbelly of the city’s infrastructure and capture majestic vistas of flowing lights. From boats on the river to cars on the highways, witness the motion of the city.
What We’ll Shoot
Learn to find and frame impressive views of the urban landscape. You will get coached on composition techniques such as the usage of leading lines as well as all the necessary settings for long exposure night photography. If you are not used to working with a tripod, we will provide you with all the necessary skills as well.
Where We’ll Explore
We begin our exploration at Suitengu-mae station, located a few minutes away from Nihombashi, Tokyo’s financial district. Here we will find the Sumida River which offers spectacular views of the east side of the metropolis. We will then head to Akasaka, where we will find a massive highway interchange, ripe with elements and lines that will provide us with dramatic images.
