Had a brrrrrr breezy portrait session today with our beloved UAPC member Joanne! Although the fall breeze came sweeping in and surprised us, we had a warm shoot nonetheless.Joanne is a student in the University of Alberta studying in human ecology and has done a few contests on her own. She has made some pretty sweet dresses and accessories. You can see a short clip from her latest contest for Southgate Mall in Edmonton
We tried a bit of light painting that day too, but it didn’t really go that well, so I stayed behind that night to pin the problem down all by myself! Check it out below!
So this must have taken at least 20 frames to get myself to freeze properly. I’m especially proud of it because I stayed in the cold windy night to do it all by myself till around 3am. I still find a lot of room to test new things out, so I called up a few friends from University of Alberta Photography club. Stay tune for the next post!
In the streets of Sham Shui Po, you’ll see some of the oldest buildings in Hong Kong. It is also famous for its flea market and street vendors. You may not find the trendiest clothes and newest gears. Rather, you would find parts, Pro audio and visual gears, LED lights, and even used electronics, power tools, and other “nerdy” and “geeky” parts and gadgets. You can find all sorts of people here, and the dragon centre nearby definitely brings a nice modern touch to this area.
I travel with the mind of checking out Photography Gears in Ap Liu Street, and of course to the Dragon Centre (Chinese: 西九龍中心) and other streets where clothes, cute stuffed animals, and cool toys are for sale there. Perfect for souvenirs.I didn’t get a photo of the camera stores but rather went right down to business into buying things and snapped some photos of the mall and a glimpse of the street scene here in Sham Shui Po, Ap Liu Street. Here are a few snaps at the Dragon Centre, which has lots of “square stores” and cool food.
