Once a year, at the temple Agato in Fukuoka Japan, visitors gather together to begin the celebration of the coming new year in an annual fire festival.
A tradition with a series of rituals rooted in Shintoism and celebrated by both the Buddhists and Shintos of Japan.
To photograph this event, I used the Canon R with the 24-105mm f4L and processed the photos with Lightroom. I’ll also share you some tips and tricks and the mental process I use to produce these photos.
The Canon 24-105mm f4 is true master of versatility with an incredibly useful 24mm focal length on the wide end, and some really nice reach with 105mm on the telephoto end.
Walking around, shooting landscape photography, travel photography, HDR or events, you can use this lens in just about any situation. Build quality is really nice, color contrast, sharpness is very good and there are no serious flaws other than some minor chromatic aberrations in the corners and some distortion. It’s the perfect high end kit lens.
