I will be hosting a photo walk next Sunday afternoon in Beijing. We will be shooting the Hutongs in Beijing. The Hutongs are a type of narrow streets and alleys with residences with traditional courtyards. This makes for great street photography. The Hutongs have been rapidly vanishing to make ways for new roads and buildings. They have been designated as protected areas now in an attempt to preserve this aspect of Chinese cultural history. We will shoot until dark and then stop off for a bite to eat and some drinks.
All levels of photographers are welcome to join. If you are a beginner there will be knowledgable people you can learn from. If you are an experienced photographer, please share what you know.
When: Sunday, February 26th
Where: In front of Starbucks at Houhai Lake (51号 Di’anmen West Street, Xicheng, Beijing, China)
Gear: Pack whatever you are comfortable Shooting with. Remember, the more gear you carry the less photographs you actually take. We will be walking so don’t pack too heavy. I’ll be shooting my M9, a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95, Summilux 35mm f/1.4, Summilux 21mm f/1.4 and a small Leica Tripod.
