Back to China

After four long years we have returned to China!  This time was a much tighter schedule so there was very little time to shoot but we managed to get a few fun one as always. On this trip we not only revisited Beijing but also had some time in Shanghai. Here is just a little peak at what we absolutely love about this amazing country.

In 2010 we managed to get some really interesting photos due to us finally starting to get familiar with photography and our cameras. Its also due to the fact that the places we visited are really amazing and anything you point the camera at looks like the next cover of National Geographic. This time it was great to try a few new things as well as retry some old ones. As the majority of our time, on some travels, is spent in and around theaters, Beijing provides us with easy access to a great photo op. The National Center for The Performing Arts is an architectural photographers dream! Often refereed to as The Egg it looks more to us like an alien ship coming to invade Earth. Its clean simple lines and massive size are elegantly enhanced by its reflection on the water surrounding it and makes it look as if it's floating on air. We loved photographing it on our first trip and this trip was even better.
