After the frst confirmed case of the swine flu in Hong Kong, a fraction of the locals are wearing surgical masks in the street. Some of the more concerned tourists do the same. There are not a lot of them really. After all, the SARS outbreak happened some five years ago.
People are advised to continue their business and social activities as usual. So people just ate out as usual and I took pictures of usual.
The thing that I wish to share for today is framing. Use some foreground to frame the scene just as if it were the frame to hold the picture itself, says lots of the books on photographic books. As far as my experience goes, foregrounds as frames are more usually found in landscape pictures and streetscape snaps.
But with a little bit mutation, this trick can be applied to like a photo of the "business as usual" life of the locals in a restaurant below.
Another favorite foreground frame of mine is the rubbish bin! I digged out some photos from the old posts to illustrate this trick, which can be used to add the photographer's opinion in the photos.
