Thread: Going to Hong Kong, what to shoot?

  1. #1

    Default Going to Hong Kong, what to shoot?

    Leaving tomorrow for work. Will be there 2 weeks. In that time should get a few days (on the weekends) to go shoot. Rest of the time, stuck in the office.

    This is my first trip to HK, so don't really know what to expect or where to go for pics. As I've got such limited time there, I really want to go to the 'must see' places.

    I've seen pics taken from the lookout (or whatever it's called) and thinking could do a nice pano from there. If not, is it worth taking tripod?

    Anyone got any suggestions? Also, is it worth shopping for kit over there?

    You can go to the Lau Tao Island (spelling?) to shoot the big buddha, Victoria Peak during day and night, the Tsim Sha Tsui skyline and the outter smaller islands.

    I think there's a lot more place, any others got suggestions?

    1. Night cityscape from Victoria Peak. (Take the tram/cable car up the Peak from station at Central).

    2. Night citycape of HK island from Tsim Sha Shui (Kowloon).

    3. Neon light, traffic, human traffic and sign boards on streets.

    4. Take a trip to country side (Tai Po etc.), Lantau Island or some other nearby islands.

    There are many photo shoot outings organized by various HK photo clubs in weekends. Some shoot scenery and some shoot pretty models. However all will be conducted in Cantonese.....

    So many trips there, I always make 1 mistake, that's I never bring my trustworthy tripod... It is very important, especially for the beautiful night scene.

    Confidence is thinking you'll be Champions, arrogance is stating it.

    Wa, if you happen to go to temple st, you must watch out for "ku huo zhai". My sis went to the nite market, there was this man performing there,waving at her. after she snap the shot, the man's face change colour. He's actually asking her not to take pics!

    If you prefer street shooting, then HK will be your haven. HK street is very lively and crowded....

    Yes yes, shoot the roadside hawkers, pple. If you like stalls, street shooting and shoppings, don't miss out "Tung choi" street, "Temple" street, "Mongkok", "NorthPoint (aka Bei Jiao in chinese) etc, shop, shoot, and eat till you drop. All reachable by taking MTR.


    Yum Yum.....

    there r plenty of opportunities to shoot...from gd architecture to exciting street life...even the back street activities can be very interesting as well...i supposed its a matter of opening our own lenses for our mechanical lense
