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. :cry:

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?

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.

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! :bsmilie:

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