Osawa Hitomi
Artist | Photography
I get a lot of messages, some asking same few questions, but I have no time to answer. Sorry! T_T So I answer them here. Hope it helps!

Q. How did you get started as a photographer?
A. I always wanted to be a model/celebrity. When I was 16, I went for a modeling audition. We had to do a trial shoot. I saw all the cameras, lighting and all the paraphernalia and I was impressed. When I saw the end product photos, they were so nice that I got very interested and started asking the photographer a lot of stuff about photography. He was very nice and patiently explained to me and let me handle his equipment. I got selected for the modeling gig but I went to the company and told them I wanted to intern as a photographer assistant instead XD I did the internship, attended many photography lessons, worked for the company for awhile and later became a freelance photographer.

Q. What was your first publication?
A. It was NON-NO, the japanese fashion magazine that I audition for. I photographed fashionable girls on the streets and did some features for the permanent models.

Q. Does your job take you out of Japan?
A. Yes many times! ^_^

Q. Where is the furthest you have been from home?
A. America

Q. What is the funniest thing that happened to you while you were at a photoshoot?
A. I was doing a shoot and I had to stand VERY near a pond, practically on the edge. My back was facing it. The whole time, I keep telling myself to be careful, to remember not to step backwards. But I forgot my own warning and halfway, I stepped backwards and fall into the lake! Everyone got a shock. I don't think it's funny but everyone else did XD I'm just glad the camera equipment did not fall in (I was using tripod)

Q. What camera do you use?
A. I work as freelancer and sometimes contract photographer or photographer assistant with different studios. I just use what is given to me. Personally, I recommend Nikon SLR digital cameras. It is good brand ^_^

Q. Do you edit your photos after shooting?
A. Oh yes, very seldom raw photos can actually be used straight for magazines and commercials. I salute photographers who don't edit their photo and still have perfect photo! I will airbrush my photos, sometimes to change the contrast and lighting a bit, or make the models look better.

Q. What do you photograph for?
A. Mainly photos of models and actresses for magazines, photo books, photo websites, cd-jackets, sometimes commercials too.

Q. Have you ever worked with any male models/celebrities before?
A. I worked with a male model only once, as the publications I work for mainly deal with male audience, except for the fashion mags, but for those, we always use female models too.

Q. Can you teach me how you do your photography?
A. Sorry, this is so hard ^_^; My suggestion is, practice makes perfect!

Q. Can you send me photos that you did not post on deviant art?
A. All photos that I am willing to share already posted here and in my website ^_^ I can't send anymore.

Q. You worked with --actress--. Tell me more about her!
A. It's not very appropriate to reveal other people's private lives. All I can say is, most of the people I worked with are quite professional.

Q. What is the name of the girl in the photo?
A. Read the description! I always put model name in the description.

Q. Can I have your email/msn/aim/yahoo...?
A. I don't really have time for these messengers ^_^; If you want to talk to me, you can note me here ^^

Q. Can we be friends?
A. Sure ^_^ Thanks for asking. um... but I'm not a good friend because I reply messages really slooowly. Hope you don't mind ^_^;

If you have any more questions, you can ask below and I'll answer.
