BCPA 2018夏游露营欢乐颂8/10-8/12/2018

熬过了冬日,送走了春风,终于盼来了BCPA 组织的三天两夜夏游露营拍摄活动。出发午后的天空蔚蓝得不见丝毫杂色,除了偶有的劲风掠过车身,车外的一切都显得那么祥和,而车内的我们带着逃离忙碌工作的喜悦心情载着满车的露营用品一路狂奔到达了田磊队长指定的林间营地 — Adventure Bound Cape Code in North Truro 。我们都明白露营和平常郊遊踏青不同的是能夠徹底的感受从白晝到黑夜的天象变化。经验之一:定要跟着爱玩爱闹的队长去野游,尝试不同的新鲜和刺激.

赶在夕陽西沉之前,我们齐心协力地搭建好了帐蓬和一张野歺桌,饥肠辘辘地一行人带着三个可爱男孩和Lily狗赶到了Highland 灯塔前。这座经典的灯塔设计和高度是这地区标志性的建筑。如果爬上灯塔顶部,还可以欣赏崎岖的大西洋海岸线的壮丽景色。迎着夕阳,天空中的云霞变化多端,感觉它的光不再耀人眼目,而是十分柔和明亮,它向西缓缓地退着,像个俏丽的少女一样温存、恬静。抬头,仰望,直到看到了最后一丝余晖…我们互相的几语宽慰,期盼着夜晚能拍到无边无际的银河和炫彩迷人的星轨…..

无意中看到了凯岚在群里对李明伟老师说的一句话 “跟着你就跟着那太阳”,让我们这些吃瓜群众的心都醉了,我们都羡慕唯独老师如箭离弦般跑得又快又远拍到了炫美的日落。经验之二:定要跟着老师一起狂奔抓拍不同寻常的美。

夜幕终于降临,万籁俱寂之时,小小的我们抬头仰望漫天繁星,点点闪烁,仿佛相接相连着这凡间和苍穹星空,我们再次迫不及待地拿出相机,满怀期待着定格这如此绝美流星划过的瞬间……

可惜天公不作美,没多久天空出现了太多的云遮住了满天的星星,但是我们并没有失望,而是心存感激,感激摄影协会东旭会长,微波副会长的组织和资深望重的摄影大师李明伟老师的压阵,以及最辛苦付出的田磊队长和Cary老师的带领,让我们明白了作为摄影爱好者,无论是否能拍到完美或者不完美的银河星轨都值得我们对这天地仰望一生….

不知道有人是否听说过“摄影毁一生”,大概就是因为当我们接触了它,投奔了它,悄悄地迷戀上了这种又累又爽的感覺,这一生都难从中脱离,欲罢不能….

可能过于兴奋又是睡帐篷,这一晚差不多成了“Cape Cod 不眠之夜”。


摄影师: Cary Chu 朱健雄

第二天天刚亮我们就拖着睡眼惺忪的脚步又回到了灯塔附近的海边拍日出。这里的海面开阔,没有一丝的遮挡,可以很清楚的看到晨曦染红了天边,静悄悄地铺散开来。也许是有心有意,我们拍到了东旭会长架好了三脚架等待着旭日东升的高大威猛背影,好霸气!


摄影师: Lin Li李琳

之后的场景大家也应该猜到了,没多久太阳被云遮住,它耀眼的光芒从四周射过去,慢慢地变浅了消失了,带着失落的心情我们又像风一样飞快地回到了营地,准备去下一个目的地 — Provincetown拍摄采风。

P – town 位于鳕鱼角最北端的角尖,那里的画廊,海滩,沙丘吸引了无数游客,号称美国最自由,最嬉皮,最波西米亚,以及最开明的地方。白天我们一上午的愜意拍照,对比着三个可爱男孩和Lily狗的瘋狂玩樂,我们因着他们的快乐而更快乐。

东旭会长又贴心地给男孩们买了一个五彩的风筝,看着他们和狗玩得撒欢儿劲,让没有童年记忆的我羡慕不已,真想抢玩到手撒个野。经验之三:定要缠着会长买玩具回到儿时的任性撒欢。

下午我们又兴致盎然地徒步穿过森林走到了一片细沙绵绵的海边。欣赏着海水款款地一波一波涌过来,一次一次亲吻着绵绵的海滩,轻柔极了。思绪万千,对海的感情从来都不因时间的流逝而有丝毫的褪色,海边的景色总是我们心头最眷念的一道风景。

细聊了我们的野营过程和分享了我们的收获作品,当然不能不分享我们露營的重頭戲 — 五歺的露营伙食!对一些吃货的我们来说太重要了!现在细想起来,至今回味无穷 .. 出得厅堂的大摄影师入得厨房的御用大厨 — Cary 朱健雄老师和二厨廖劭炜在第一天的晚上让我们非常满足地享受了他们当场做得美味大餐,竟然在条件清苦的露营环境下吃到了粟米豆腐雞蓉羹,臘腸雞煲仔飯,蠔油生菜,叉燒火肉和楊州炒飯, 让我们惊喜连连,感动得热泪盈眶,太幸福了!经验之四:定要跟着老师走四方吃四方,绝对想廋都难!


摄影师: Yun Thwaits 夏耘

我们还分享了各自带去的小吃小点 (四喜烤夫,酒糟凤爪和毛豆,红烧鸭翅,川味麻面等等),非常地美味可口。 特别要夸奖一下我们的凯岚, 她从歺馆里订买的美味串串,让我们的第二天烧烤晚餐更是丰富奢侈,有烤香肠,鸡翅,鸡肉,牛肉,五花肉,玉米和红薯,阵阵地香飘味诱人垂涎。大家时而安静放空,时而大声喧哗聊天,围绕着熊熊篝火 ,仿佛尽情地燃烧着我们的激情,如此美好的片刻,不经意地让我们回到了年輕時一群好友相聚的疯狂青葱歲月。

两天的早餐也是丰盛营养,有刘辉和李明伟老师煮的热粥,鲜香不腻的包子,煎饺,有一早鸟鸣起床的素颜美女—微波煎的36个金灿灿的荷包蛋,标致地让人折服!还有Cary老师烧的泡面加火腿鸡肉让如天使可爱般的孩子们和狗狗吃得欢乐无比。

下面两张都是李明伟老师的作品。这张抓拍到了微波最美丽最温柔的素颜照。

BCPA Outing to Naumkeag 2018.7.28

Reporter: Emile Bellott

Photographer: Weibo Zhang

30 members of BCPA got up very early on Saturday morning to drive 120 miles to Naumkeag Estate in Stockbridge MA. Our journey through fog and swirling mountain mist turned our minds away from the 21st century city life – to a simpler, more genteel time in old China. Everyone arrived on or before the appointed time and waited a few minutes for the gate to officially open for the day.

Photographer: Emile Bellott

Naumkeag Estate was built in 1885 as the summer home of the wealthy New York lawyer and diplomat, Joseph Hodges Choate. The 44 room mansion and property are typical of the luxurious “gilded age” residences of the day.

One unique feature of Naumkeag is the walled Chinese garden, patterned after traditional Chinese gardens, going back several millenia. In the 19th century such Chinoiserie were popular amongst the wealthier classes in Europe and America, due to their novelty and exotic provenance. Naumkeag’s walled garden is one of the finest examples in New England and features a masonery wall; a moon gate; lattice work window and wooden gate. The gardens and patio are arranged in a traditional Chinese style, featuring oriental plants, rocks, statuary dragons, waterworks, tile and sand. On the east ( upper ) side there is a temple structure, raised several steps above the patio. The main floor of the temple affords a panoramic view of the valley beyond the wall. The south wall features a 2-meter circular “Moon Gate” skillfully constructed of brick work.

On arrival in the parking lot, our group unloaded a large quantity of photographic equipment, props and other supplies for the morning photo shoot activities. In the ensuing photographic frenzy, the overall scene appeared, at times, to mimic the photographer’s gallery of a White House Press Conference. Cameras and photographers were lined up – at times 3 and 4 deep – to catch every tantalizing pose.

Through the morning, various members changed, chameleon-like, between alternating roles — photographer or model. Thanks to the thoughtful organizers, tents were provided to facilitate quick changing of costumes. And the members obliged by bringing a large array of typical and traditional Chinese clothing and fashion attire.

Aside from the clothing, the most popular props were: swords and martial arts accessories; flowers; cigarettes; umbrellas; bicycle; pipa; and fan. In terms of architecture, the most frequent were temple; moon gate; lattice window; entrance portico; and wall.

The photographic composition and output of the group comprised 4 broad categories: kung-fu acting and sword-play; posed glamor shots; idyllic motifs; and photojournalism. All of these were enhanced by the plentiful array of Chinese-style architectural elements in all corners of the garden.

The first scenario is martial arts. This themes acted out traditional roles from Chinese literature of the ages, including Kung fu; Taichi; sword battles; fierce swordsmen and a warrior princess .

Senario 2: posed glamor shots. The glamor shots featured both men and women posing with the key architectural features. All of the cameras captured several of these scenes; re-enacted by the majority of the models.

By the end of the morning, when we packed up to leave, the group had taken an estimated 15,000 shots. The best of these were posted to WeChat, as if by magic; and new posts continued into the following week. Post-processing spanned the spectrum from color to monochrome — and all of magnificent quality.

We ended a perfect day with a hearty lunch at a Chinese restaurant nearby. We all took the time to introduce and to reflect on the beautiful events, just completed. And we’re all to be congratulated for our excellent work and friendly spirit.

BCPA中国风外拍2018.7.28

7月28日星期六,BCPA在麻州Naumkeag举行以中国风为主题的外拍活动。三十位会员这天四点多就起床,驱车一百二十英里,来到拍摄地点位于Stockbridge镇的Naumkeag Estate。一路上,云蒸霞蔚,风光旖旎,把会员们的思绪从二十一世纪的现代生活中带到简单朴素,田园诗般的古典中国。大家都在约定时间前到达目的地,等了几分钟,Naumkeag Estate就正式为我们开门了。

摄影师: Emile Bellott

Naumkeag Estate 建于1885年,是当时纽约富豪,律师,外交官 Joseph Hodges Choate的夏季别墅。别墅里有44个房间和硕大的花园,见证美国“镀金时代“的奢华。
Naumkeag 有个传统的中式庭院,十分独特。 十九世纪的时候,仿中的建筑及装饰深受欧美富豪阶层喜爱,因为中式风格对他们来说,既新颖又充满了历史感。Naumkeag 的这个中式庭院,是新英格兰地区最具规模的最有代表性的中式庭院之一。 这里有风火墙,镂空的木窗,月亮门等典型中国传统建筑元素。庭院中的东方植物,玉石,喷泉,石狮… 摆放也都遵循着传统中式园林的布局。庭院东面,有一个古代庙宇式殿堂,坐落在高阶之上。从殿堂正面可以俯瞰风火墙内外全景。庭院南面,红色砖墙中镶嵌着月亮门,蜿蜒的小路通过月亮门伸向庭院之外…

到达停车场后, 会员们从车上搬出大量的照相器材,道具和相关装备。热火朝天的架势,勘比拍摄白宫新闻发布会。每个场景, 都有摄影师从各个角度拍照。

整整一个上午,大量的会员需要更衣, 扮演不同的角色。 会员们真像变色龙一样,一会儿是摄影师,一会儿是模特。感谢组织者,准备了方便更衣的帐篷。会员们负责准备大量中国传统服饰和现代时装礼服。除了服装以外,其他主要道具有: 剑,武术用品,花束,烟斗,油纸伞,自行车,琵琶,扇子。反复使用的中式建筑元素背景有: 月门,镂空窗,入口门廊,风火墙。

这次中国风摄影活动主要由四个主题组成:功夫剑术,现代时装, 复古怀旧及拍摄花絮。
功夫剑术主题,包含中国武术中的不同角色与典故:太极高手,格斗公主, 武士决战,道士下山。
