Shooter's Comments: Photographing Taiko drummers is usually a test of one's will, simply because of the incessant noise. But there were only two drummers here, in a small room at the Community Center, plus only one volunteer student. Luckily, they decided to work at a single drum, so I didn't have to deal with spacing issues between the three women.
