I’ve uploaded a couple more photo galleries to the archive, including my first batch of travel and sports images. These are from my brief trip to Hong Kong in 2012, when I was sent over for a shoot at the Hong Kong Sevens rugby tournament. I split the photos from this visit into two galleries, one devoted to travel photos and one devoted to the action at the tournament.
During my couple of nights in Hong Kong, I spent some time photographing the famous city skyline, from both Kowloon and The Peak.
I also had an opportunity to experiment with some different shooting techniques. The effect in this shot was created by zooming the camera lens during a long exposure. No post-processing magic was needed to create this weird look.
I also paid a visit to Lantau Island, home of the famous Tian Tan Buddha. The effect in this photo was also done “in camera,” using a Lensbaby (a small tilt-shift lens).
My official photo shoot was on the final day of the rugby tournament, and I had some spare time to capture some of the action and the “pageantry” of the Hong Kong Sevens. This tournament is famous for its big party in the south stand. Everyone dresses up in costumes and gets a little rowdy. It was more fun shooting the fans than it was the actual game play.
Remember, you can now order prints of all of the images in the archive (except, I’m sorry to say, the Hong Kong Sevens images, which are available for licensing only).
