Japan’s capital city is one of the largest and most exciting cities in the world. It is a Mecca for photographers, who have a preference for shooting street, architecture and cityscapes.
One photographer whose images stand out from the masses is Masashi Wakui, a photographer based in Tokyo. He photographs only at night and mostly in backstreets. Afterwards he processes his photos, in order to make them look like tinged, oversaturated scenes form Japanese anime.
The specific look of his images comes over big in the Flickr community. One of his meanwhile more than 40,000 followers has even tried to replicate the look in Lightroom and has shared his workflow over at lightroomtutorials.com. The result is not quite the same, but it’s appealing nonetheless.
