BCPA FAVORITE PHOTOS OF 2017


The idea of this collection is to demonstrate the wonderful work the photographers of Boston Chinese Photography Association (BCPA) have done in 2017. From landscape to street photography, from wildlife to portrait, those images not only capture the beautiful moment, but also show the great passion.

The “Favorite Photos of 2017” initiative is to collect and share our members’ favorite photos taken in 2017. Each participating member selects 1 or 2 photos from their 2017 collection to share. This portfolio showcases a total of 65 photos from 33 members.

BCPA was established in August 2009. It is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving its members in the greater Boston area. Our mission is to create a platform for our members to promote interest in photography, improve photography techniques, enhance artistic expression and art appreciation. We host regular activities that include lectures, technical seminars, special topic photography, studio photography, travel and outdoor photography. We welcome members regardless of age, gender, experience, or equipment.

BCPA2018哥伦布假期白山秋色外拍

活动报道: Yuanli Wang


摄影:Yuanwen Liu

转眼又到了新英格兰地区最美的赏枫季节,热爱生活的BCPA摄影人怎么会放过这么好的外拍机会呢?在BCPA现任会长单东旭和副会长微波的组织协调下,在外拍领队田磊的精心策划下,我们20人的外拍小分队就这样开始了为期三天的哥伦比亚长周末赴新罕布什尔州的赏枫之旅。


摄影:Yuanwen Liu

我们一行六辆车10月6日一大早分头从各地出发,于中午在Flume Gorge集合。碰头后,我们吃了简单的午餐,就开始了拍摄。Flume Gorge是一个天然的峡谷,里面有溪流,花岗岩,当然还有色彩绚丽的秋叶。大家在这里或者拍廊桥,或者拍溪流,或者拍树叶,或者拍人像,各得其乐。

接下来我们去了Cannon Mountain,乘坐缆车来到山顶。山里气候多变,我们来到山顶的时候,正值浓雾弥漫。大家就沿着hiking trail,在云雾中漫步了一大圈,也是另外一种体验。缆车下山以后,天也差不多要黑下来了。大家分头回到位于Bretton Wood的住地,热热闹闹地吃起了火锅。

第二天起了个大早,计划去赶早上7:30 Mt. Washington Cog railway的火车。可惜天公不作美,浓雾加上大雨,火车不能开到山顶,我们只好取消了这个行程。

这一点小挫折对于大家饱满的摄影热情丝毫没有影响,吃过早餐,我们依然兴致勃勃地出发前往下一个拍摄景点:Silver Cascade。由于刚刚下过雨,这个地方的水量还可以,不过上山的路上有些湿滑。大部分摄影人都有着丰富的外出拍摄经验,穿着防滑的登山鞋,拿着摄影器材,一个接一个地爬到了半山腰处的一个拍摄点。登高望远,云雾缭绕处是漫山遍野的红叶,近处则流水潺潺,落叶满地。尽管陶醉在大自然的美景中,我们也没有忘记拿起相机抓拍这些美丽的瞬间。接下来我们来到Diana’s Baths,这是位于North Conway的一个小型瀑布群。在这里还发生了一个温情的小插曲。会长单东旭为了拍出好照片,把三脚架下到一个小水潭里,可是一个不当心,眼镜掉进水里了。水还挺深,直接用手的话,眼镜捞不上来。领队田磊的儿子Ethan找了一根树枝,把眼镜捞上来了。另外两个小朋友都为他鼓掌喝彩,同时也跃跃欲试,也想亲自用树枝把眼镜捞上来。会长很有耐心地把眼镜又扔回到水中,陪每个小朋友都玩了一遍用树枝把眼镜从水中捞出来。为了感想小朋友帮自己捞回眼镜,会长还请小朋友们吃了冰激凌。

第三天的早上,我们驱车前往Omni Mount Washington Resort,红顶白墙的大酒店坐落在绿色的草地和满山的红叶当中,分外好看,引得我们的摄影师Yuanwen嚓嚓嚓地拍个不停。附近的另外一个拍摄点Crawford train depot也是可圈可点。随后我们去了好几个overlook,比如Hancock overlook,Sugar Hill overlook等,由于能见度不是很好,我们没有停留很长时间,看看也就开车走了。最后一个拍摄景点Lower fall,有很多大石头,不少人都攀上去拍照。配上周围的红叶和瀑布,景色还是非常宜人的。

2018情景摄影第三季-平凡运动中之不平凡

活动报道: Nancy Chen


摄影:Weibo Zhang

时间飞逝,一转眼2018年已过了大半。BCPA 2018年度的情景摄影活动如火如荼地进行了两个季度之后,筹备工作小组决定趁热打铁,选定于9月29日在Wellesley college校园进行以运动为主题的第三季度情景外拍。这个季度的情景主题,筹备工作小组经过商议,决定以普通运动项目为着眼点,用我们的镜头从平凡运动中捕捉出不一样的风采。

此次有十多名会员踊跃报名参加拍摄。9月底的麻省清晨已然有些凉意。29日,在协会领导和带队老师的带领下,早起的会员们迎着朝阳在Wellesley college美丽的校园中开始了一天愉快的拍摄。

如之前两个季度的情景拍摄,此次参加的会员们一如既往地全情投入。大家带来了各种运动器材 – 网球拍、跳绳、篮球、scooter、瑜伽垫等供拍摄使用。会员唯丹和Cary老师还从家里搬来了两辆自行车和全套的行头予以搭配。
王雁和Gary夫妇二人一马当先在田径场地开跑。一旁的摄影师们为了追求拍片效果,七嘴八舌地提出了各种姿势要求。他们两人耐心地配合大家一遍又一遍地开跑,全然不顾脸颊边流下的汗水。王雁更是在一次起跑中因用力过猛而摔倒,胳膊肘还蹭破了皮。大家赶紧请她去一旁休息并清理伤口。

你方唱罢我方登场。在田径场地的一边,几位美女会员开始了跳绳表演。罗丹和Kathy还玩起了一系列的花样跳绳,仿佛把我们带回了多年前跳绳,跳橡皮筋的校园时代。五彩的跳绳在空中一圈圈地翻飞,旁边摄影师们也赶紧喀嚓喀嚓不停按下快门。

接下来的重头戏是打网球和骑自行车场景。当天校园里的网球场几乎无人, 拍摄小组分成了两个小分队。一个小分队在观看唯丹和杨栋之间的男女混单对打。通常而言男生打网球比女生有力,所以可看性会高一些。网球级别达至4.0的女中豪杰唯丹丝毫没有一点点示弱,对于杨栋每一次有力的击球都一一反击回去。在他们来来回回的较量中,一旁的摄影师们在叫好声中及时地抓下了两人飞满全场的每一个灵动瞬间。

在另一个网球场上,会长东旭和带队的Cary老师做了一个小玩具,供大家做挥拍动作的练习和拍摄。一时间满场的欢声笑语此起彼伏,大家尽情享受着摄影外拍的乐趣。

时间不知不觉已近晌午,众人的兴致也随着日头的升高而越来越高涨。大家一致决定午饭之前一鼓作气完成自行车场景的拍摄。对校园并不熟悉的东旭凭着感觉为大家找到了一处很不错的小道,那里有几处弯道,甚至还有一些不规则的狗尾巴草可做浪漫前景,万事具备只欠东风。这时候Cary老师和唯丹换上了非常专业的自行车赛手装,一时间两个矫健、帅气的身影在小道上轮番上阵,摄影师们抓住机会练习各种拍摄技巧,不少人在老师们的指导下开始尝试难度较高的panning技术。之后东旭和美女骑手们王雁、Joanna和罗丹都纷纷上阵加入了骑行的行列。

午饭前的高潮部分是Cary搞笑的自行车选手摆拍。极具表演天赋的Cary在众人的镜头下做出各种累到极致的痛苦状,一旁的副会长微波又悉心关怀地用喷水壶往Cary脸上制造人工汗水,令大家忍俊不禁。

匆匆地吃过午饭,休整后的会员们再次干劲十足。首先上场的是女子瑜伽小组。柴锋、康妮、王雁、春华、Joanna和 Nancy在草地上排出队形做起了各种瑜伽动作,在各色瑜伽垫的映衬下大家排出的队形煞是好看,此时动作是否规整到位好象已显得不那么重要了。瑜伽之后我们又进行了高尔夫球手的摆拍,还在拍摄跳跃的过程中向东旭学到了低机位拍摄的技巧。

正如欢快这二字的组合,欢乐的时光总是让人觉得短暂。初秋的日光开始变短,太阳西斜意味着我们的拍摄活动即将结束。临分别时,金色的阳光印照在每一个的脸上, 美得和谐自然。真希望时间可以就此停住,让我们多一刻享受如此的小美好。这一天我们拍摄了不少平凡的运动项目,我们是否通过镜头表现出了过程中的不平凡,犹未可知。尽其乐,亦已足矣。


摄影:Cary Chu

抱着为会员们提供拍摄不同场景机会的主旨,情景拍摄的每一季我们都选择了不同的拍摄主题。虽然每一次拍摄的主题不同,但参加拍摄的会员们都可以在一个快乐的氛围中学习到摄影技巧,捕捉镜头下会员模特们略显稚嫩但却极其用心的种种演绎。更为重要的是BCPA这个大家庭让我们走到一起,在拍摄活动中相互了解彼此,让我们有机会感受镜头后面走来的每一个鲜活而有灵性的个体。

最好的总是留在最后,第四季度的情景外拍我们再会。大家敬请期待。

BCPA 2018夏游露营欢乐颂8/10-8/12/2018

活动报道: 李琳


摄影师: Cary Chu朱健雄

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。


摄影师: Mingwei Li 李明伟

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。

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。

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 .

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

活动报道:Emile Bellott (译:Lin Tong)

摄影师: Weibo Zhang

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。

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。

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.

A student, pure and elegant.

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.

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!

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!
