Chinese National Day in Hong Kong

When I first arrived in Hong Kong in 2015 I thought the New year eve would be a perfect time to practice firework shooting. I went to the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade since 9 pm to get a good spot for shooting but I was a newbie back then. All the photos were either overexposed, underexposed or wrong timing.

Suddenly, police officers came to close down the... continue reading

Happy New Year 2016!

Within few hours the new year is coming to an end. The party can begin. Were we foodies, we would think of the good food that we will serve tonight. Were we movie fans, we would think of all the new movies to be released in the new year. But we are photographers, so food and movies can wait. I am convinced that all would take out and arrange their equipment: tripod, remote control and camera, trying to identify the best possible location to capture the most spectacular fireworks.I wish you all a... continue reading

The lowest ISO value, the better. 100 ISO is perfect. 3) Use the surface of the water.... continue reading

Using collages - is it useful??

Hi all,Now, as part of improving my photoshop skills I tried something new. Icollected more than 10 photos I took on the same night and merged them into one as a collage. I took these photos in New York (actually New Jersey as I was on the other side of the Hudson :)) during 4th of July. I could have upload the skyline photo as solo and maybe one or two fireworks images. Eventually I decided to make this collage.It took me some time as you have to be super precise and calculate the needed... continue reading
