Watashiwa Sampo o shimasu. I use to tell to my mother in love: vado a fare una passeggiata. I love walking through the small town of Kitakata, even in very cold winter days, only with the company of my camera, I travel light during this promenades, I carry the 85mm. lens and the 17-35mm zoom, the latest I use rarely, I love details, close ups, I do not feel as landscape photographer, I look out for mood, sensations, glances on passing moments. I love this rays of sun caressing the trees covered witrh snow.
toshi no kurenuru
toki ni koso
matsu mo miekere.
Only at the end of the year / when the snow spread / the white blanket / highlight to the eyes / the perennial green of the pine.
Thanks to great article of professor Rossella Marangoni (in Italian)

I had the great privilege of being invited to take photos of him by the Accademia del Karate Yoshitaka in Abbiategrasso near Milan, where Shirai sensei regularly hold seminars.
To tak the photo I had only half an hour time with him, early morning in a superb December day in 2011, but at 8 am. there was no light coming from the big windows and I had to set my lights, 4 tungsten spotlights of 350 w. This is why tere is a deep blue windows, I like this effetc. I use a 85mm 1.4f Nikkor lensfully open to achieve a great bochen effect (means shallow focus) is funny to notice that the boken in japanese is the wooden sword used for training in kendo.
