We’ve been talking about we wanted to host a Strobist 102 workshop.
we did 101 a few time already, time to move up and go practical.
So last weekend, few of us decided to do a test run.
Organized a small scale workshop with 5 people only.
It was quite successful I think.
We hired one model, and XXOM also brought a friend.
Read on to check out some of the model shots and test shot!! and find out how we think about the meetup
So.. I was suddenly in the mood to search for broken building this week (well.. I’ve been trying to search for a while..)
Somehow i have a thing for broken places, used to love the “Brick work” in Toronto (used to be a brick factory, got discarded for years)
First stop i went was M50. on Moganshan Lu (莫干山路）
there is a building I’ve seen a few time.. but never got the chance to find way to access it.
here’s the building. It is a 3 floored building but i i don’t think upstair can be access.. the floor already hollowed.. probably not safe to get up there.
Summer is TOO hot in shanghai….
so … we decided to have NIGHT time meetup this month!
Since lot of us got no high-iso or super fast lens.
walking around town could cause a problem…
so… someone came up with the idea of doing night painting!!!
First of all,
I have to say i was going to update this 2 weeks ago.
but my connection to WordPress been acting up like crazy!
So i can’t post anything properly until now.
Anyway, hope this won’t happen again.
Now the main story.
So 2 weeks ago, on July 24, 2010
We were having the first “Scott Kelby’s Annual World Wide photowalk” in Shanghai.
We went from Jingan Temple all the way to Huaihai Zhong Rd.. about 3.5km
we had 35 people in the group! all with camera in their hands, and walked for good 3-4 hrs!
It was great fun! and many many thanks to John for organizing this!
Anyway.. gonna share some more pic after the break, so click to see more!
Was dragged to the Shanghai EXPO again last week.
and gosh.. there are ALOT of people.. even more than the last time i went few months ago!
read on! and see what happened to me…
Here’s the 2nd part… let’s continue where i left off in part 1.
After we left Yongnuo, we went upstair to check out more lighting stuff.
we stop by a booth called Nanguang.
they all do continuous light. (non flash)
and came across one BIG ring flash consist of whole bunch of florescent tube mounted in circle.
at first, i was a bit sceptically about this thing… (never really a continuous lighting guy. like flash more)
but well.. i have to say the quality is quite good.. and the catch light is very interesting!
