Random Portraits of Models with Leica X-VARIO in Shinjuku East, Tokyo

I know the Tokyo-X-VARIO project is officially finished and so I shouldn’t be posting any more X-VARIO images unless I have a reason to. Perhaps I’m writing an article about street photography or a how to series, and these ‘unused’ images fit the article? Well, I’m not. I just love this series of images I took of these models (Wendell, Diane and Leo) and I couldn’t see myself using it anytime soon so I thought I would post them now. I also thought it would be a waste to use these pictures on Instagram since there’s so much detail. Even the above pic has been reduced from a 23mb RAW file down to a 1.9mb jpeg… I know, it’s a shame. I posted a picture from this series during my Tokyo-X-VARIO project here, but I had extra images I wanted to use later…so here’s the rest of them…enjoy!

Leica X-VARIO @ 31mm. 1/400th sec F/4.1 @ ISO 400. You can see me in the reflection between Wendell and Leo…hello.
