So, inspired by this seriously talented dude, I hiked up Mt. Inwangsan on Saturday evening to get a magic hour shot of downtown Seoul.
Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate, as you can see — it was like shooting through pea soup.
Such are the perils of landscape photography in the Korean spring, I suppose.
Anyway, now is as good an opportunity as any to link to some inspirational and informative links (all in Korean) I’ve found over the last couple of days:
- CK Collection: If you live in Korea, and especially if you have an interest in night photography, spend some time going though Im Chang-kyung’s work — highly inspirational.
- Some amazing Korean travel photography here… not to mention some great travel destination ideas.
- I don’t have a fisheye, but if I did, this site would provide me with lots to emulate.
- This site has lots of photos to ogle, but more importantly, it has tons of useful information regarding photo locations throughout Korea. You have to sign up, but there’s no need for a Korean citizen number, so it’s foreigner-friendly.
