iPhoneography | Sunset | Plastic Bullet | Beijing

Summer Palace, Beijing, China

I was tired of shooting this city a few years ago, not to mention a touristy spot like Summer Palace (Did I even care to go?), last winter, I went back to Beijing after have lived in San Francisco for a while, I discovered more beauty of Beijing, where I always truly love no matter where I am.

App: Plastic Bullet

Great App with amazing light leak and color variations, you never know what you will get, but always have surprises, with variety of vintage plastic toy camera filters.


iPhoneography | Self Portrait | Hong Kong

Metro Park Hotel, HongKong

First day in Hongkong on Dec 2010, waiting for the sunset and blue hour on the roof top, you’d never go wrong with back light, I always love to shoot this kind of self portrait rather than a “big face”. lighting always makes different, it would be such a boring photograph without the light shining on my face.

App: Instagram    Filter: Toaster

Back light during golden hour (1 hour before sunset) is always my favorite time to shoot, on the rooftop at our hotel in HongKong, I got this great self portrait. The filter makes the light more red-ish and warm.
