Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Days 10 & 11 | Wuyi University & Train & Shanghai

China Travel

Days 10 and 11 of our Summer vacation to China sort of blended together with one day being a travel day, so they’re blended together with this vacation photos blog post! As we were exploring parts of Fujian and Wuyi we went to visit Wuyi University which has a gorgeous and large campus out in the countryside of Wuyishan. After spending the morning/afternoon around the university and visiting Betty’s family they dropped us off at the Wuyi rail station where we took the evening train over to Shanghai. Here are some of the sights from Wuyi University and Shanghai!

Had Betty stand in for scale to just how big some of these buildings at Wuyi University are.

Since it was Summer break for the University the campus was mostly empty other than a few international students.

The sports arena at Wuyi, really huge! I can’t imagine what the campus is like full of students during the school year.

I think this was just a random station in between Wuyi and Shanghai that I got out to take photos of during a stop to stretch my legs.

Of course we had to stop at the park/carnival thing that is in the center of Shanghai for the kids to give Miles a break from the sightseeing. He really loved this ride which lets kids drive construction equipment.

Street night market scenes outside of the main commercial strip. These were sprinkled here and there throughout the city with locals hanging out and grabbing a bite to eat after work with street food.

Of course I had to walk to the Bund to take photos of the riverside at night!

Manhattanhenge 2016 in Times Square, New York City
This year's second Manhattanhenge took place last night, July 11th, and I was actually in town not traveling for a wedding like the first time it happened this year! I happened to also have a quick meeting with a bride in New York City yesterday for her upcoming destination Indian wedding, so it worked out perfectly to hang around NYC for a few extra hours to catch the sunset! With the sunset only lasting a few minutes, I didn't have enough time to walk to a second location in the city like 34th street, which also seemed like it would produce a pretty cool photo based on some quick location scouting earlier in the day due to it bei ...

New Website Launch! | Free Facebook Timeline Cover Photos
Our new website finally launched, woohoo! In between editing these wedding videos (Sorry Yusra & Rahil, Reesha & Neil!) I've been trying to get our new website finally up and running. On top of that our previous website hosting provider's contract is up in a month so that was the perfect motivation to get things running and switch website designs and hosting. While the website is about 90% complete, that's good enough to launch for me! I'm just missing a few galleries here and there as I rebuild the content from our previous wedding photography portfolio. So, why the need to change? If it's not broke, don't fix it... right? Well, our ...

Using a DSLR for HD Video Part 1: Shooting
Using a DSLR for HD Video Part 1: Shooting After my second attempt to put together a video, I thought I would share some tips and learning from the process. First, please take a look at this video, which was my first foray into HD DSLR video using the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D: Babylon of the Orient from Zac & Betty FengLong Photography on Vimeo. One caveat, this is not my first edit of course! It took a lot of trial and error to get this one looking like it does above in the cutting room floor of Adobe Premiere Pro. However, I will speak about what works and what didn’t work as far as shooting the actual footage. This video will ...
