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!

This Vertical Horizon Hong Kong photography project is a similar style to the awesome architectural photography of Peter Stewart.
Imagine visiting a place where every afternoon was the most amazing sunset you’ve ever seen…until the next day. Boracay island might be paradise, and made for some amazing sunset silhouettes. Loved it!
Boracay Sunset Silhouettes!
Boracay was easily my favorite part of the Philippines. We saw some of the most amazing sunsets – this post has some of my favorites.
Nearly every day in Boracay finished with one of the most beautiful sunsets I’d ever seen!
The Boracay beaches were fairly empty until around 5pm, when the sun began to set. This below photo is of Frisbee Silhouettes!
The gorgeous Boracay sky turned orange, red and purple, and made for some awesome sunset silhouettes. The colors are simply stunning!
There’s nothing quite like experiencing a breathtaking sunset.

How to photograph silhouettes
Assuming you work in Auto mode, turn your flash off. The key to photographing silhouettes is to meter on the background sky, instead of the subject. Most cameras autofocus as soon as you press the shutter halfway. Aim at the bright part of the sky, then press and hold your shutter halfway. Keep it pressed halfway as you adjust to what you want in your frame. When you’re ready to take the photo squeeze the shutter fully. Bam!
