The Very, Very Final Photo Package

I don't think there'll be much problem with releasing photographs of a school if they're all scenery shots without anyone in it. So, here's the very final package of a Japanese elementary school.

Elementary school

This package contains 24 photographs, bringing the grand total of available free backgrounds to 1359.

Did they let you in when the school was about to close, or did you just wait for moments when no one was in your shot?
All the same, it's an impressive amount of photos, great job! It'll prove useful to study the texture for various materials as well, not just for straight referencing.

(as it goes, I'm a bit envious: I got horribly embarrassed in the past, when asking to take photos for backgrounds, and always ended up with a much less nice result, because I was trying not to inconvenience people for too long... :/)

The elementary school was swarming with kids of course. The photographs in the package were selected from my batch of all the photographs I took that day based on the fact that they first, looked like backgrounds, and second, had nobody present inside of them, giving the wrong impression that I was visiting an empty school.

A huge thanks for taking all of these. These photos are great, and I'm sure they'll be very useful for some nice VN projects.

Samu-kun, I am indebted to you. I live for reference images - I have three book-shelfs crammed with them and a filled NAS. Thank you very much for your effort.

Any and every photograph of Japanese ordinary life is nugget of gold. :D

I only just discovered this thread. Wonderful stuff. Are you still providing photos, Samu-kun?

No I am not. Unless you want photographs of San Diego. ;)

Pics of San Diego wouldn't be a bad thing IMO, some photos outside of Japan might help people have some reference variety. Also, if it isn't too much trouble, maybe you could put all the photos into the first post? Maybe you should make a new thread altogether in the Creative Commons board since it'd be easier to find there.
Sorry if it sounds like I'm asking too much, just thinking about how to help people find your photos ;-;

I'm still in Japan, so I may be able to help people out with the occasional reference photo. Except schools, I don't want to scare anyone.

You are a real life saver Samu kun!
I'll use your photos as reference material when practicing my awful background art.

Thanks for your hard work :3
