    Thanks Dan! The original is also nice for #3. But I thought this presentation would be unique.

    Love the lighting, not crazy about the cultural appropriation.

    Sorry but don't agree with most of what was written in that article, especially the examples they use. It is quite obvious the person who wrote the article and yourself don't understand the real definition of cultural appropriation. There is absolutely no exploitation done in those photos it looks more a tribute to the beauty of the Geisha. Which should offend no one.
    Cultural appropriation is the new thing to be offended by. The true definition has been bastardized.
    Since the beginning of time people have borrowed styles, clothing, music, etc from other cultures. It happens when cultures mix. A lot of the music, fashion and food we have come to love over the 100's of years wouldn't have happened without this "borrowing".
    The Japanese themselves since the 50's was "appropriating" western cowboy culture. Should Americans be offended by this?
    But these days people not black can't even style their hair in corn rows or dreadlocks because its considered "black culture" and cultural appropriation, even though dreadlocks were not only done by black people but in middle eastern and Scandinavian countries as well.

    I don't want to mess up this guys thread with a argument over this but if you want to start a new thread to talk about it I would join in. Cultural appropriation and political correctness have just gone too far these days.
