I have to say that I’m starting to like Hsinchu City a lot. There’s always a lot going on and unlike a large city like Taipei, everything worth doing in the city is within walking distance. Combine that with some underground pedestrian tunnels that are quite convenient and some nice shopping districts which include camera stores for gear I might need and it’s even better.
In addition to the Cosplay event last weekend, I also saw a hip hop dance competition. This gave me a great chance to practice with the SB-600 as it was getting quite dark outside. I put the white balance on cloudy (which works well with the tone of the lights at night) and also took the time to practice the multiple-releases on my flash. Also, some of these do look better in black and white, and I liked the emphasis it gave on the movement of the subjects.
Below are the best shots from the hip hop competition. You might also have seen some photos from when these teens were practicing this in the park in an earlier post.
