And not just on any night, last night was National Day night and the buildings had some new never before seen tricks, the tallest building seemed to have finally achieved fully operational Deathstar status, but I actually spent more time trying to capture “I heart Shanghai” and test out the various modes/scenes/settings on my Panasonic. I really must bring a tripod or at least a mini-tripod next time I do this.
I should have taken even more photos perhaps but I got hungry and I got tired of waiting for ads to play to get the illusive double “I heart Shanghai”. Other buildings did cool stuff too, I should have shot video or perhaps I have to get a new apartment with a strategic balcony. I was really cursing the Chinese Internet this morning it timed out repeatedly during my Flickr uploads, but I think I’ll just upload even less photos to Flickr. Below are the top photos.
Coworkers must have been inspired as the next night I was summoned to Liujazhui aka the other side of the river to photograph the tall buildings, then after the rain ceased and the clouds were still low I went and spent another night photographing Shanghai’s skyline. I think I’m getting the hang on the quickest way to get good pictures from my camera, I’ll have to branch out more, but I like “Cool Blue Night” mode and I also use Intelligent Auto+ and “Artistic Night” mode.
