Hong Kong images I saw this week. Capturing sites, views, and not to forget some healthy munchies all along. An effort at taking pictures of the people of Hong Kong. Voyeuristic? Open? Sneaky? Connecting with people or not at all?
All in all shooting street photography in Hong Kong is entertaining. Places like Wan Chai and areas in Central are easy to discover, but there are lots of other locations that will meet your photography appetite.
Let me tell you: there’s nothing quite like an idea in mind a camera and scenery like Hong Kong to recharge your creative batteries. I took my time to intensively test the new 23mm f2 lens with my Fujifilm X-Pro 2, which I've got arriving in Hong Kong.
Picking some favorite places I was wandering, breezing and meditating street photography. My challenge: limited time just for three days, and a new lens to test. I managed to pull together a small series of street shots in a kind of Noir style which I liked very much, configuring the Acros setting to my taste.
As it is nearly impossible to force anything, and staging life in the streets has not been on my mind, I had to predict as best what’s about to happen before your my eyes. To be observant and ready to shoot helps and is one of the most important points to use in the trade.
After the hectic times in Mumbai, I find it kind of therapeutic, and entertaining to observe people in the streets.
