Today made for another adventurous day in Hong Kong. We took a class trip to downtown/Sham Shui Po to explore, and photograph for our project due next week. We were shooting for both fun and a purpose, in that, our photographs had to be imitations of well-known photographers’ photographs. The photographer I chose was Dapper Lou, a Haitian fashion photographer. I really love Dapper Lou’s high contrast and strong whites. After about an hour of Lightroom editing, I think I’ve taken some photographs that are pretty close to his style. This one above was specifically a replication of a shot from his Master the Light collection, a photo journal for Hugo Boss. I’ve been following Dapper Lou for around two years now, so I had to pay homage to him.

I hope that you enjoyed this little photography post. Lately, many of you have been loving these types of posts, and I am always happy/excited to post new photography projects. (I’m titling this series Lou’s Way. ) I honestly can’t get enough of street photography, and I’m so obsessed with photographing a minimalistic sky against a building. So aesthetic.

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @helloninetyseven to see more shots from Lou’s Way. 

Thank you so much for reading!

      1. It is–in Hong Kong dollars (HKD). When converted to American dollars, things are very cheap. But in Hong Kong dollars, it’s outrageous. Eating at a restaurant is about $100/200 HKD, each time. I usually spend $500 HKD grocery shopping. But it’s better off to grocery shop!
