PhotoShoot: Shots on Magnificent view of the Tsing Ma Bridge

Aim: Learning/ Practicing Double Exposure (Please check your camera with this function)

The event is suggested by our member, Simon Siu.

We'll take shots before/ after the sky gets dark and roads light up.

How to get there

We take bus from Tsing Yi Station to Cheung Hang Estate, and hike 10 minutes to the shooting point.

The shooting point is somewhere along the Tsing Yi Nature Trail and we target to reach there 45 minute before sundown. Then, we wait for the sky gets dark and roads light up.

There is always no chance to get a clear shot if we stay in the trail as trees stand between the bridge and oursleves. What he told me, there is the top of the mountain and we are able to shoot the whole bridge, see his photo below.

We'll end up to have a pint/ dinner and photo sharing in the Maritime Square at Tsing Yi Station.

Venue: TBA

Yes, Simon is everybody's instructor again and don't forget to bring your Tripod.

    @Tom L, we are discussing to organize another sunset shots at Lau Fau Shan. The shots are similar as Ha Bai Nai. However, there is a bridge in front of sunset, the sun is falling behind the bridge which is actually a good subject for shots both. I am trying to post some photos of the shot. If members are happy with it, then we go for 2nd round "Romantic Sunset"!!

    Thanks guys, after looking at some of the Yuen Long sunset shots Jenny organised, it seems that would be an ideal location for a similar time lapse video...

    During the outing I tried to take some video of the sunset. It's a kind of time lapse, sped up video. Not wonderfully interesting, and I should have set the exposure better, however I've posted to Youtube if you are interested to see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaDKIHg62sw

    @Elaine, we do not want to take any risk in case of bad weather. It's only an event and we can do it on 15th Oct, right? Safe is the most important.

    @Elaine, the weather forecast - Cloudy with occasional rain. So, I'll check the real situation on Sat morning to make final decision.

  • Henry L.

    Oooh as long as it works Elaine, will be awesome! Thanks thanks! Can also collect it from you before hand if it makes it any easier for you, rather than having you carry both tripods alone. I don't really know about rentals in HK Vinod. I just read that you can rent them online, but not specifically in HK. Might have to do some digging around!

    Hey Lee Jerry. Yes D7000 has got multiple exposure.

    September 25, 2011

  • Lee J.

    Does Nikon D7000 have multiple exposure facility?

    Hey All. I would like to mirror Vinod, and also ask if anyone has a spare tripod my friend could possibly borrow? Obviously Vinod gets 1st dibs. Is it possible to rent Tripods from anywhere? I know you can rent lenses, but never heard or read about renting tripods. Thanks!

    if I don't have double exposure function in camera, can still join, right? I'm not sure how to check on this, I'm using Canon 550D. Sorry, If i sounds stupid.

  • Henry L.

    Forgot to say thanks for the advice Jason. Ended up getting a Benro transfunctional travel angel from the sham shui po shop.

    September 16, 2011

  • jason f.

    The gold standard of tripods is Gitzo.They can be easily found in all of the main photography hubs like in Wing Shing and Tin Cheung.However gitzo are not kind on wallets

    I put my 8kg camera on a benro.They are a Chinese (or Taiwanese) company that makes a very nice selection of tripods.Not as refined as the Gitzo's, but the tripod I have is very sturdy.I use a C-297,but that might be too beefy for you.They have a distributor in Sham Shui Po; viva photo.

    Wow, can't wait to go here! Bet it's an amazing view! Will have to buy a tripod before then. Anyone recommend any? A friend told me about 3LT Brian, which is kinda costly at US$320 (haven't even check where to buy in HK), but he said its worth it and will last.

    September 2, 2011

  • Cool J.

    No, we will be at the top of the mountain.

    @jenny is this the same place called the "tsing yi viewpoint" ?

    August 21, 2011

  • Cool J.

    Very near, less than 8 bus stops.

    August 21, 2011

  • Katherine

    Hi Jenny, how long is the bus ride from Tsing Yi Station to Cheung Hang Estate? Is it near?
