Shooting in the dark
It’s not too often you see bonsai photographed in the dark. In this case the effects are rather magical (no pun intended). If you look at the entire El Tim KIMURA album, you’ll see a bunch of photos of phenomenal bonsai that were shot during the day, followed by a few photos of phenomenal bonsai that were shot at night. The difference is striking, and though I like the day photos a lot, it’s the night photos that really got me.
Whose brilliant idea?
I wonder who came up with the brilliant idea to shoot at night. Kimura? The El Tim people? Someone else? Either way, hats off and thumbs up.
