aaron in Shanghai

My name is aaron. I go by aaronisnotcool on the internet. The is the second trash class I’ve taken on skillshare and I loved both of them. I took the class the night before my trip to Shanghai, China, and used it as the inspiration for the photos I took during my trip. These are my photos.

Street Photography

This man was drawing characters on the tiles of the Yu Garden in the morning. I stood by him a watched for a few mins, then began shooting him. I couldn’t get a very symmetrical shot without showing his process, so just wanted to capture what I saw.

Look Up

This photo was taken during the only sunny day that we had during our time in Shanghai. The towers clockwise are: Shanghai Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, and Jin Mao Tower. I had captured others but I was the most impressed with scale with this photo.

Motion Blur

Motorcycles and cyclist are everywhere. I stood at a busy near People’s Square intersection snapped a bunch of cyclists passing. This guy was my favorite of all of them because of the colors, he had a big cargo, and he was just cruising by.

Night Photography

Took a ferry back and forth between the Huangpu River and fired some of people out on the deck as it crossed. This guy’s coat looks great across, the blurred and colored Shanghai skyline.

I hope you guys like the photos. I had a great time with this class! Let me know what you think, and if you want to follow me on instagram: http://instagram.com/aaronisnotcool/
