  • what I like about this shrine is not tourists

  • so in that last video Alexander learned how to use a camera and we're gonna take

  • those skills now and we're gonna try and capture lightning I'll explain that in a

  • minute certainly Ginza/Shimbashi area today for

  • a little bit of a meeting the building that I'm meeting at that was really cool

  • let me show you this this is it right here

  • to meet Lucas so I've been here for the better part of two or three hours now

  • I'm actually inside of one of those capsules we're working out some projects

  • the window does not open probably wouldn't want it to open anyway now back

  • in the day to have these really cool circular shades oh it's like spiral

  • shaping and one or two other capsules still has the original shade so you can

  • see it from the street but yeah ours is is gone it's just like a regular window

  • look seven years ago Lucas took a photo out in this area at a spot that many

  • people take a photo of it was just spectacular let me show you that for a

  • second Lucas has been trying to recreate that photo

  • for the better part of a decade he's trying to recreate it for the people in

  • his workshop so they can learn how to do that and it is exactly

  • and while we're here Lucas has agreed to show me the roof of this building which

  • is called Nakagin Capsule Tower you most definitely seen photos of this

  • place before and if you didn't you saw it in the opening but we're out on the

  • roof and this this isn't it like I can just point the camera in any direction

  • right now check this out

  • even this building here has a very Mirror's Edge feel to it if only these

  • pipes were red yeah the light is perfect for what we want to do yeah yeah it's

  • just that super-bright heavy science you like this guy's lit up it couldn't ask

  • for a better life like this is exactly why let's go in there and then we're

  • going to use the reflection on the mirror to get a nice kind of

  • kaleidoscope of people in life

  • see how deep the rabbit-hole goes right all right so since Lucas knows how much

  • I love sharing hidden little secrets he's sharing one of his with me today we

  • just came up the Main Street in Ginza there yep and he's saying that we can

  • just do a straight line shot right down to this shrine shrines right here

  • there's the marker for it you know you wouldn't think oh it's

  • terrifying back there well there is a shrine deck it's really dark

  • what does this remind you guys out

  • damn place right I love the sea we've all got our little

  • tokyo secrets yeah even got like the Bell and

  • everything people do actually come free let me let me take two seconds to show

  • you guys this you know

  • I'm hearing a lot when I bring you know people here for my workshops and one day

  • when we were here the guy who manages this little shrine came here by chance

  • and he said oh you're interested why don't you look inside and you unlock

  • this door and there's a little altar in there you know those shrine that was the

  • one once-in-a-lifetime kind of chance though look up there

  • Lucas has us using the reflection of the light off of these mirrors that cascades

  • across the people to try and catch faith is even if you time it perfectly and

  • everything comes together just the subject themselves might not be that

  • interesting so you also got to wait for an interesting person or some cool

  • action that we're doing make it a little bit more you know let

  • me play around with some of the camera settings and show you guys exactly what

  • I mean

  • it brings us back to this part of the video we're climbing a lot of stairs

  • right now getting really tired I'll be okay let's just let's just

  • get the you know the glitzy Ginza out there and it was like rich over here

  • yeah you know such a cool contrast

  • yeah that's pretty good

  • all right Lucas just had a really cool idea so we're gonna find a spot and put

  • the camera down for a second just let's do that he said let's play a game with

  • this let's put up three pictures and have everyone guess who shot which

  • picture so we're gonna put three pictures picture one picture two and

  • picture three right now it's up to you you can guess in your head or you can

  • into this knowing what to expect but I still had a lot of fun there's one that

  • I really really want to do with Lukas and he has this photo adventure called

  • vertigo where you go up under rooftops and give cityscape shot if that's

  • something you're interested in leave it in the comments below he will see that
