I had to reupload this as the photos weren’t showing…
車道-Shadow- is ran by Masaki Okada. The name translates to “Road Way Shadow” and he got the idea from two different video games. Remember back in the day, you’d hop on Gran Turismo 4 and go to Photo Mode? Video Games! That’s where Masaki started and got his ideas from! He takes photos of not just cars, but circuits, harbors and ports, as well as urban areas. He drives an MKIV Supra as well.
Blogs are all about explaining pictures, in a sense. Explaining events in words and showing pictures to tell the story visually. And that’s why I have always enjoyed automotive photography. And that’s because you get a real inside, depth, look at the cars. Whether it’s a professional racing event, or a night out with friends photos truly say a 1,000 words. I, as well as many of you, have been following Japanese photography of all kinds for years. It gives you an up close look of things you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. I have been following 車道-Shadow- for a very long time and have always enjoyed the details as well as focus and quality of each photo! I messaged him to get a photo of Kouitiro’s car for the previous blog post (https://exec-11.us/2017/01/22/kouitiro-hayasis-rx8-s13/) which I did get but actually decided to use for this post. I really enjoy this because I’m sure a lot of people want to know how these photos come out so great as well as get a good idea and context of what goes into these photos and who shoots them! Below I’ll explain the camera setup and of course show his “Favorite” selection he sent me, below. Please follow the facebook page to see some outstanding shots! But please scroll through, there’s 60-something photos and something for everyone, I’m sure!
