第一组要介绍的场景, 是身着旗袍的民国女生。旗袍是中国女性的传统服装,象征着高贵典雅。由于旗袍的特殊剪裁和设计,即使现代女生穿上旗袍,也会多一份矜持和内敛含蓄。

这位身着精致旗袍,手执油纸伞款款走来的民国女生,有没有带你入戏?

摄影师:JingWei Zhang

纯洁素雅,书卷气十足。

摄影师:Feng Chai

打扮得如此精致从容的女子,生活中会不会也是完美主义者?

摄影师:Yun Xia

这位才情横溢的女子,倚在楼梯上翘首以待。

摄影师: Daryl Luk

骑车在林间小路上,憧憬着去学习新的文学和思想。

摄影师: Feng Chai

含蓄婉约

摄影师:ChunHua Yang

优雅高贵的青花瓷,如果不是发型的细节不同,还以为其中一个是另一个的镜像。

摄影师:Weibo Zhang

这位民国女子推车而行,众弟兄回头相望,女子期盼邂逅却受传统观念束缚,没有停下来,依然寂寞前行…

摄影师:Feng Chai

在雨中,她袅袅婷婷地走过去,真让人想要了解更多那个时代的故事。

摄影师: Daryl Luk

第二个情景是民国时代的恋人。
男女间乌托邦式的爱情,虽无肢体接触,默契却跃然纸上。

摄影师:Cary Chu

或许从他们的背影里,观众能体会出他们之间有着刻骨铭心的故事。

摄影师:Lin Tong

那个时代还有一类的故事,他没有勇气表白,她又过于矜持,心里虽然有情,但最终突破不了世俗的,道德的,传统的观念。只好选择分别,最终相忘于江湖。

摄影师: Lin Tong

民国时期,婚姻也由封建包办过度到男女自由恋爱。待嫁的女子,对未来充满了憧憬。

摄影师: Daryl Luk

这二人幽会,遭遇了民国时期的狗仔队。

摄影师: Dongxu Shan

Cary老师和模特一起切磋参数。

摄影师: Nancy Chen

导演要求这位帅哥给出对心爱的人缺乏勇气表白的表情。这位现代帅哥走得顺拐了还没找到那种矛盾复杂的感觉,把大家都逗乐了。

摄影师: Daryl Luk

情景三是民国的艺人们
音乐人生活不易,更不要说盲人,他沦落街头,卖艺度日,生活十分艰辛。

The 2nd season of BCPA melodramatic photography

Date: June 23, 2018
Reporter: Lin Tong


Photographer: Nancy Chen

On June 23rd, the second season of BCPA’s melodramatic photography event was held in the western suburbs of Boston. The theme of this season was portraits in the style of the Republic of China. In the morning everyone gathered at the Codman estate, a fifth-generation family country house, to shoot. In the afternoon the rest of our photography was completed at Wellesley College.

With 19 members participating and contributing their talents, BCPA has made it possible to re-exhibit the character of the Republican period. Special thanks to Dongxu and Weibo, who organized the event, to Nancy, who has done a lot of work selecting and coordinating with the venue, to Mr. Darly Luk, who did extensive research for scene designs, to Mr. Cary, who helped photographers with their parameter settings and brought a strobe light, to Yun Xia, who brought plenty of props, to Lin Li, who did subjects’ hair and directed, and to Dan Luo, who made up subjects. Also, thanks to all the photographers and models who participated in this event! Without any of you, we couldn’t have made the event so successful!

The volunteers came to the Codman Estate after six in the morning to prepare for the shoot. The hair stylist and makeup girl started working immediately.

The first scenario is Republican-period ladies in cheongsam, or qipao. Cheongsam is a traditional Chinese women’s dress that is both graceful and elegant. Owing to its special design, even modern girls look more reserved and restrained while wearing a cheongsam.

A Republican-period lady dressed in a delicate cheongsam and holding an umbrella of oiled paper, walks leisurely towards us, inviting us into the Republican-period melodrama.


Photographer: JingWei Zhang

A student, pure and elegant.

Photographer: Feng Chai

A woman dressed up so delicately with such a calm demeanor. She is representative of the care with which people of the time attended to their appearance.

Photographer : Yun Xia

This talented woman leans on the stairs, looking forward to a wonderful future.

Photographer: Daryl Luk

Cycling on the forest path, a young girl looks forward to her lesson in the new literature overtaking the nation.

Photographer : Feng Chai

Graceful and suggestive.

Photographer:Chunhua Yang

Elegant and noble in blue-and-white-porcelain cheongsam, if it were not for the details of their hair styles, these two women might be thought to be one another’s mirror image.

Photographer: Weibo Zhang

This Republican-period lady walks her bike, and the men all turn around to stare. Although she would welcome a romantic encounter, restrained by the traditional mindset, she continues on her journey alone.

Photographer: Feng Chai

Walking lissomely in the rain, this woman makes us want to know more about the era.

Photographer: Daryl Luk

The second scenario is lovers during the Republican period.
Platonic love between a man and a woman. Although there is no physical contact, the tacit understanding appears vividly on paper.
Photographer:Cary Chu

Perhaps from the scene, viewers can appreciate the unforgettable story between these two.

Photographer:Lin Tong

In another story common at the time, he lacks the courage to profess his love, and she was too reserved. Although she was inclined in heart, she could not break through the secular, moral and traditional mindset. They ended up breaking apart and forgetting each other.

Photographer: Lin Tong

During Republican period, love replaced the arranged marriage. A women to be married had a great longing for marital bliss.

Photographer: Daryl Luk

These two met in secret, but unfortunately they encountered the paparazzi of the time.

Photographer: Dongxu Shan

Mr. Cary and models work together discussing parameters.

Photographer: Nancy Chen

The director has asked this modern boy to act like someone lacking the courage to express his love. However, the handsome boy tried so hard but still couldn’t find that feeling. This amused everyone.

Photographer: Daryl Luk

The third scenario is artists in the Republican period.

Life was hard for the artist, especially for one who was blind. Hua Yanjun made a living by playing his erfu (Chinese fiddle) on the streets.

Photographer: Dongxu Shan

They played music together since childhood. Life could be so simple and sweet in the old days.

Photographer: Lei Zhang

Like pelting rain, bass strings give a deep and raucous timbre. 
Like a whisper, treble strings exude a light and gentle tone.

Photographer: Lin Tong

The melodious voice of the vertical flute conveys emotions of the heart.

Photographer: Cary Chu

Evoking an emotional appeal even before a single note is played.

Photographer: Weibo Zhang

The most popular ensemble in Shanghai.

Photographer: Cary Chu

Their witty and humorous performance style was widely loved by the public.

Photographer: Dan Luo


Photographer: Lin Li

In scenario 4, the theme is love of home and country during the turbulent years.

n the late Republican period, China plunged into a three-year civil war. The two parties, the Communists and the Guomindang, were inextricably linked, and stories of spies abounded.

It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. We hope that with this melodramatic photography event, we have brought back fragmentary memories of the Republican period.

Photographer: Daryl Luk

Team effort!

Photographer: Dongxu Shan

The president of BCPA took behind-the-scene photos and helped hold the lighting reflector. Between photo sessions, he discussed the work of the association. He was always busy!

Photographer: Cary Chu

June 23 was cloudy. The light was very suitable for portrait photography. With the strobe lightbrought by Mr. Cary, there were more possibilities for creativity. We have gained a huge number of good photos, learned photography techniques, and practiced interaction with models. At the same time, everyone deepened their friendship and had a wonderful day! Thank you, BCPA, for organizing this event!

Mr. Cary and Vice President Weibo made two videos of this event. Please watch them and give us a thumbs up!

BCPA為期16週的攝影課程順利結業 2018.01 to 2018.06

图片/文字编辑:Cary Chu 朱健雄

時間過得真快,不知不覺BCPA在牛頓中文學校舉辦的為期16週的攝影課程在6月中旬結束了。回想起2017年12月,會長東旭跟我說,協會計劃1月中旬在牛頓中文學校舉辦一個攝影課程,希望我能成為課程的老師。我很願意以我所學幫到一些初學攝影的朋友。於是我答應了。

1月7日,我們在牛顿中文学校舉辦了一個推廣講座。當日很多人踴躍地參加。整個教室被擠得水洩不通。最终正式報名人数为46位,远远超出我們預計。由於學生人數多,兼顧方便大家的學習時間, 我們将原先计划的一個班扩大为兩個班,在同一天的不同時間開課。 在這16周的課程中,眼見一些學生,由迷茫的感覺中,慢慢開始對攝影加深了一點認識,購買了相機,開始對攝影產生了很大的興趣。這一點在某程度上已經達到了這個課程的目的了。

攝影並不困難,最重要是多拍多想多思考。從錯誤中學習過來。在此,希望所有同學能繼續你對攝影的熱誠。多拍,但不要亂拍,多思考,不要盲目地拍。
