This is SHANGHAI(上海) CHINA! WELCOME TO!

I am a wedding photographer the whole day. what else can i say? By all means i am not good at wedding, but I have promised my friends on the train to Shanghai. I should learn more the art of turning people down.

Yesterday I spent 5 hours in the Oriental Pearl Tower (5-10pm). I was there shooting like crazy and came out with over 300 images. This tower is no doubt the greatest place to shoot the night in shanghai, the RMB85 entrance charge is worth every penny.

At the check point I had a problem bringing in my SONY HC1E video camera. The security guy said it looks professional. What the stupid security guy didn't know is that i have a much more pro camera with me, the Canon EOS 1ds Mark II. I complained to the manager and the problem solved.

I would like to thank Lao Liu for a great Sichuan cuisine treat last night at a small restaurant near Lianhua subway station. Lao Liu is an experienced Shanghainese photographer who had provided me with lots of info via MSN on taking photo inside the tower. Thank you.

Yes, this is what I love, top quality pictures and excellent skill. After seeing that I can hardly see anything more from the photos, I have to go there and see it in a live action.

I don't understand... hzkiller, why would the Oriental Pearl Tower security guard stall you because your video camera looked too "professional"? Did he give you a reason? Why is it bad?

These are some really great captions, hzkiller. Did you take all these photos? Brilliant work!
I'm moving to Shanghai in about two weeks, and I would love some info about which are the great vantage points at Pudong - especially for photographing construction sites and so on. I'll give you a PM when it's time..

Thanks for sharing.
