Blue Impulse Japan Self Defense aerobatic team performing the waterfall maneuver at Matsushima Airbase (which was swept by the Tsunami in march 11) during the 50th anniversary of the team. Airshows are performed all year long along Japan airbases except for the rainy season in june and july, a great place to be to enjoy a different environment with lots of noise, food and drinks. You can see a big amount of gear and lenses all over like you´ve never seen before, Japanese photographers always have the most advanced and impressive stuff during airshows.
Photographer:Jose Manuel Renteria Cobos (Osaka, Japan) Registered
Jose Renteria born in Veracruz in december 17th 1973, raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, and currently living in Japan. He is a professional airline pilot and photography is his second professional priority, He has a professional photography Diploma and his is an everyday learner, aviation photography is his favorite topic followed by action, street, and landscape, except studio and multi flash photo. He founded in Japan that it is a very photogenic country (if not the most) He goes to every airport available to shoot aviation, travel to places to capture natute and colors, walk the streets in the night to capture the city lights and he always has a camera in my bag. He started photography in 2000 with a Canon rebel SLR but my real start was when I got his first DSLR, a PENTAX K10D, this camera changed his life. He is still a Pentax user and he will always be. Photography is not a business to him, it´s a way to play with time and space, people and things, it´s his escape from daily routine and an addiction with no harm. He always has goals and my next one is to start mastering portratit and strobist technique.
