Anyway, so i’ve went to Guangzhou (hence the above picture)
and also Hong Kong of course.
was able to do some street photo in HK, so was happy about that!

[HKD] Light Stand Stablizer #strobist #DIYPhotography #DIY

Well.. another DIY from me!
So, I’ve came across these Cola bottle belt clip on the web (first time saw this was actually on the subway)
Been using these to clip a bottle on the camera bag for long time.
suddenly got this idea.

Prepare: Portable Lightstand Stabilizer #strobist #DIYPhotography

So, basically i took 3 of these clip, took the hook out and thread it with a cable velcro tie.

Usage: Portable Lightstand Stabilizer #strobist #DIYPhotography

[HKD] DIY – The UmbrellaDish! #strobist #DIYP

Well! For the Strobist out there.  We all know how bulky the Beauty-dish is. 
Especially for me who doesn’t even drive in Shanghai, China. Carrying the big Beauty-Dish is hard. (and people often thought I am a Satellite Technician)
So I’ve always tried to avoid using it.

The other day, I was walking around XingGuang (the Shanghai Camera Mall, Yes a WHOLE BUILDING selling photography related stuff!!)  

I came across a little rather useless thing, which is a reflector that mount in front of the camera lens, to act as a “Ring-flash” that’s selling for 20 Chinese Yuan (about 3USD??)
But suddenly this strike me, I can make use of this thing. and solve the beauty Dish problem.

So.. BEHOLD!!! the UmbrellaDish!!!
[DIY] Tata!!! UmbrellaDish!

TATA!

[Kish] Help Portrait is coming! (Help Portrait 又来了!)

Help Portrait is coming soon! it’s only few more weeks away from Dec 4, 2010
Help Portrait 又回来了! 还有几个星期就到 12月4日。

If you don’t know what Help Portrait is:
Basically it is a world wide movement started by Jeremy Cowart, a Seattle based photographer.  On Dec 4, Photographers (no matter you are Hobbyist, Amateurs, Professional, etc)  will go out and help people to take portrait, for those who never got a chance to have their portrait taken.
It’s not about us, our pictures, or our portfolio. but is about sharing with others, other people who needs, and with other photographers. So in other word, the portraits will not be post, but only send back to the “model”. Only thing that will be post is the picture that we took WITH them. to tell a story.

如果你不知道HELP-PORTAIT是什么:
基本上Help-Portrait是一个由西雅图一名叫Jeremy Cowart的摄影师发起的运动。
在今年12月4日, 摄影师们(无论摄影对你来说是兴趣,业余,专业)都纷纷出来, 帮一些有需要的人事, 一些从来没有机会拍专业人像的人, 去拍一次“专业水准”的人像照。
这个活动不是为了我们(摄影师们), 也不是为了我们的照片,更加不是为了我们的作品集。
而是为了分享, 跟有需要的人分享, 跟其他摄影师分享。
所以换句话来说, 那些拍到的人像照, 是不会贴到任何地方。 所有拍得的人像照只会被打印出来, 发还给“模特”们。
我们贴出来的, 只会是我们跟他们一起拍的照片, 去讲这一个故事。
