Photo Event

I use my camera as a meditation. Whenever I can, I throw my camera over my shoulder, choose a location in which to walk, clear my mind of daily concerns and simply observe, being open to visual elements that strike me. Sometimes it is some action or situation that catches my eye, but often too it is simply a „found“ scene along the way, whose elements come together in some way that create a feeling inside of me.

Then I use different camera techniques to try to capture that feeling in an image. Sometimes a simple straight photograph is enough, but in other situations I use special techniques such as HDR (high dynamic range imaging) or slow shutter pans in order to capture the essence of the scene. Here is my photographer’s notebook, shot in Japan and China, of scenes that caught my eye.

Toby Marshall is a still and video photographer. For the past two decades he has worked as a cameraman and editor for ZDF TV throughout Asia, being based in both China and Japan.
