Today was a last minute assignment at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. It was a gathering and meeting of Arab ambassadors and the Governor of Tokyo. We were only allowed 10 minutes to take our photos and shoot our video.
The lighting was quite difficult since we had very bright natural light entering the room mixed with very yellow lights and a very ugly wall to match.
The room was quite small for the size of the media. We were all pretty cramped against the wall. Still though, the nice thing about media in Japan is everyone is so professional and we all look out for each other. Nobody jumped in front of anyone and we all made sure we took our shots and made room for the next photographer.
