ok. location is at least 1.5hrs away from tokyo. park is open from 9am to 6pm. sunrise is 5. sunset is 630. i heard from japanese salon stylist that the japanese tend to visit these parks later in the day but i was unsure if that would be the case for sites off the main city. a park of 8 hectares is approximately 400m x 400m, which is not very big and i should cover in less than half a day (ie 4hrs). i;m going in early may shortly after golden week, and there is likely going to be a human sea.
i suspect the best light will be 530-730 and 4-6, though i had no one to actually ask, but for these flowers that drape down from the top, i had no experience and i wonder if my GND will be an issue cos i dun actually have a horizon and likely rely on reflected light.
hence i would like to ask, for those experienced in taking flowers, what time slot would u choose, and any other advices from the gurus here for newbs like me?
