Post subject:  Taking Requests for Background Photos

Since I am in Japan, I'll be taking photograph requests for whoever wants them. With a little work, you can filter these photographs to produce decent looking backgrounds for visual novels.

Conditions
All photographs are available for the public to use.
Using the photographs for any commercial purposes is not allowed.
No asking me to take photographs of places that are
a) Illegal to access or take photographs of
b) Ridiculously expensive to get to
It might take awhile for some photograph requests to be fulfilled, since I'll be taking photos as I walk aroud.
Also, I can take photographs of Osaka in a few days. If you want photographs of landmarks in Tokyo, then you'll probably have to wait a few weeks when I visit.

Also, if you have special specifications (like you want a photo during the dusk or during the rain or something) then tell me.

My visual novel backgrounds collection to date. I will upload higher resolution versions once I get my laptop operational and I don't have to rely on the dorm computers any more.

A temple would be nice. If you can, the front of a school. An alley-way. Beach. Right next to the river - you know, the ones where there's a path at the top then it sloops down to a river. (Not the best example, but if you need a better one, just tell me) Thanks!!!

Post subject:  Re: Taking Requests for Background Photos

nice idea :thumbs up

Can you get some pictures of temples and shrines and such? That would be cool and really helpful. Others thinks at the back of my mind- Pictures of a university, A park and/or garden, theme/amusement park, some general stuff. That should be quite an collection and helpful to a lot of ppl.

Photos of temples should be up in about three days, because I'll be travelling to Kyoto on Friday.

I've seen a place exactly like that on the bus. I'll see if I can find it again.

Quote:

I'll get a photograph tomorrow of a park.

Strangely enough, I haven't seen any of those yet, but I'll see if I can find one.

Now, for the collection that I have so far: (high res photos)

Quote:
theme/amusement park

I'll most likely go to one sooner or later, but it could be awhile since it's still winter right now and they're all closed.

Quote:
Beach.

Once again, probably not until it gets a bit warmer.

Quote:
A restaurant

I should get one very soon.

Quote:
A dojo

This might be a little bit tough... I haven't seen any dojos around. If I'm lucky, maybe I'll be able to visit one with the university kendo club.

Quote:
A bus

An interior shot would be pretty tricky, since there's generally a lot of people in it. If I'm lucky and I find an empty bus, then I can get you one.

Quote:
the underground

I should be able to get one soon, although I don't know how crowded it will be.

Due to adverse weather conditions, I couldn't take any photos of the park like I said I would. =_=

I did get some photos of a clothes shopping center though.

Tomorrow I'll be going to Kyoto and taking some pictures of temples. I hope the weather's gonna be good.

I also found an arcade, so I'll take pictures of that once I return from Kyoto.

Post subject:  Re: Taking Requests for Background Photos

I got over a 100 photographs yesterday, but I'm going to have to find somewhere better to upload them. Probably not a good idea to spam this topic with that many photographs. I'll see what I can do later today.

Is the interior of a hotel suite possible?

A room with computers. Bathroom (both public and private). Perhaps a basement or place for laundry?

inside a school

High school will probably be impossible. I can get some interior shots of the university though.
Quote:

Yes, as long as it is non-commercial. (you don't sell it for money)
Quote:
interior of a hotel suite

Might take a long time or might be impossible. Hotel suites in Japan are ridiculously expensive, so I won't be staying in one if I can help it.
Quote:
Bathroom (both public and private)

I'll try to take one... as long as it's empty. XD
Quote:
A room with computers

There are a lot of computer labs at the university, but the problem is that they're always full of people. I'll try to take one if I happen to see an empty computer lab.
Quote:
a basement or place for laundry?

Maybe... I'll see if this is possible by tomorrow.
