Pottering about the city - part 4
On our way towards a local supermarket for more beer we decided to stop by the local park " Nishi Ohata " were our club plays petanque twice a month. To my surprise there were two large groups of men with high tech cameras taking huddled around something , on closer inspection I discovered the camera men were part of a local camera club who had hired at least two models for a outdoor photo shoot in the park. The were asking the model to pose in different positions while the shutters of their cameras went into over drive. It was rather bizarre as in all my years of living in Niigata city I had never seen anything like this at all. The cameramen were of various ages and there must have been millions of dollars of camera equipment stored in their large camera bags. I'm sure they would have rather have photographed her wearing a lot less clothing but as this was a public park this was the best they were going to get.
Pictured above are photos I took of the other photographers and the model who was posing for them.
