Colors in Beijing

People and Places

So I do love to take photos of people. I got a question on Google+, asking why I don’t take photos of people in Iceland. I guess the biggest reason is there is hardly anyone around! Sometimes I go days without seeing people… As opposed to China, for example, where there are people around everywhere!

Daily Photo – Colors in Beijing

It was pretty late in the evening and I was tired after shooting all day long. My assistant and I stopped at a tea house along the banks of a little lake to relax. We had a very nice serving girl that kept bringing us more and more food and drinks. I think she expected us to eat in a dainty way, but we most certainly did not.

She had a pleasant disposition about her, so I asked if I could take a quick photo.

    Beautiful play of colors and a pretty smile.

    Pretty girl, pretty lights. I like.

  • How much HDR is in this shot? I remember you saying something about not liking (overuse of) HDR on people any more… But this looks great! What was your post processing recipe? 😉

  • Cute shot Trey! Even though you asked her it still looks candid. A nice slice of life. 😉 The bokeh is really cool too. Did you use your 50mm for this one?

  • Such a beautiful image! The colors are delicious and that strip of bokeh creates a great composition.

  • Thank you!

    Johannes – NO HDR here…

    Mark – 50mm yes!

    Beautiful!

    Saw this and thought of stuckincustoms. http://www.howtogeek.com/news/tutorial-how-to-make-your-own-pair-of-steampunk-goggles-geek-project/6046/. Of course, I assume Trey has already learned from the best, but what the heck…

  • The colors and bokeh make this really special. Great shot.

  • A beautiful, natural photo.
