Incredible Hong Kong architecture photography that makes the HK look surreal!
Photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze captured Hong Kong’s architecture in his Vertical Horizon Hong Kong architecture photography project. He’s made it into an 80-page book of photos from his 2012. The 26-year-old French photographer captures the city’s skyscrapers from vertical angles – all looking up. So cool!

Photography tips: How to capture these:
Next, let’s talk about how they shot these photos. These vertical angles were captured through a wide-angle Sigma lens with a 10 mm focal length. Unlike a fisheye lenses, he says a sigma lens avoids distorting the urban landscape’s straight lines.
Now let’s look at one facing downward instead. This below photo reminds me of the Guggenheim museum in NYC, but it’s actually Tai Hang.
I love all of these!
From French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze:
Where’s your favorite skyline architecture that you’ve seen? Hong Kong’s skyline is certainly a candidate for me!
