Well.. the Chinese New year break was LONG.. a bit too long…
It’s funny that the first day when i got back to work, my boss said. “wow you seems more tired then the way you look before the holiday!” Well.. kinda..
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!
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.
So, basically i took 3 of these clip, took the hook out and thread it with a cable velcro tie.
and of course, you can mount three 2 liters one. (click here for full size)
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.
Let it snow~ Let it snow~
well… First snow this year in Shanghai is finally here…
and it is coming in hard!
first time I’ve ever seen it cover the ground/roof in shanghai.
(it’s normal in Toronto i know… but not in SH!)
anyway just wanna say it!
Holiday season is coming (even tho there are no x’mas holiday here in China.)
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.
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。
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。
This year, we will be working with New Citizen Life Center (Minhang) at 182 Lincang Rd. Fenfa School, Minhang District, and Help take photo for the Migrant Families
今年， 我们会跟 新市民生活馆（闵行）【上海闵行区临沧路182号奋发学校】 合作, 为流动人口家庭拍他们的人像照/全家福
This Saturday, we (Myself, SueAnne, Savio, and Lumi) went to do some Help Portrait Preparation, while we are on the way, we saw this farm while we are on the Metro. So we decided to stop there after lunch to check it out.
Well.. It’s Nov 1, 2010 today…
and Expo is finally coming to an end….. And there are a few thing i notice right after.
I suppose there are some good thing and bad thing that such a huge event had brought us.
Read on to see a video of Poor Haibao got beatup 😀
