There was a promotion event for the Otasuke Girl DVD on the beach at Yuigahama Beach (in Kanagawa). It was free and open for anyone, but since the weather was bad (cloudy/raining and not so warm), the beach itself was pretty deserted. Usually at this time, the beach would be so packed that you couldn't move..

The event flowed as follows.

  • talk by Kurita Riko, Akiyama Rina, Kurasawa Kaoru
  • songs by i-chips (Shintani Sayaka, Kurasawa Kaoru, Iwasa Mariko)
  • final talk by Kurita Riko, Akiyama Rina, Kurasawa Kaoru
Luckily the weather held up during the evnet. It started raining after the event ended.

photo notes

I took 410 pictures with my 10D, with only 205 of them worth keeping. Since I didn't want to bring my good lenses to the beach, I only brought my 300mm F4L and 28-105mm F3.5-4.5 lenses. Also since I wasn't 100% sure that they allowed pictures, I didn't bring my monopod.. Big mistake. Since I was using the flash, the 10D could only synch at 1/200. So the shutter speed was too slow for the 300mm lens (which becomes the equivalent of 480mm with the 10D). There were MANY blurred shots. (;_;)

I had forgotten how to turn the flash into FP (high speed synchro) mode. After getting home and reading the manual, I figured it out. Next time, I should be able to use shutter speeds above 1/200..

My photo breakdown per girl was as follows.

Shintani Sayaka 80
Kurita Riko 50
Kurasawa Kaoru 47
Akiyama Rina 13
Iwasa Mariko 11
emcee 4
