★ Come on~ Use a film camera to keep the good time in Shanghai~
Please feel free to share your wishes and thoughts with me about the look you want, retro style or poster style? Are you going to take casual photos or hipster photos? Let us create together! Anyway, come on and let the magic of film change your photos!

We will meet and take a walk along the old French Concession (West Bund Art Center & Oil Tank Art Center & Long Museum or Bund and other places are also available), here in addition to capturing iconic buildings, we will also show you some interesting things scattered on both sides Location: Garden house, old alley, coffee shop, buyer's shop, etc. I will choose a suitable method according to different scenes to record your most natural beauty and most exclusive moment.

Our shooting trip is relaxing and unrestrained. You don’t have to worry about your taking pictures. Be yourself as easy as breathing, and I happened to press the shutter... I am your friend and will guide you to release Take the most comfortable posture and stay confident! Hope you can enjoy this time happily.

With plenty of time, I will also take you to visit the concealed celebrities’ old houses and feel the old memories of the past; visit the private galleries deep in the alleys to appreciate the ultimate artistic atmosphere...Here we will also end this journey.

You will receive 36 original color film images that I took for you within one week, and then carefully edited 12 beautiful photos. I will develop and scan them into an electronic version and send them to you via the Internet disk. If you need the negatives, I will also send them to you. Always be ready to make all your friends envy! Looking forward to seeing you again! Looking forward to better you!

★ Other matters needing attention
1. The color of the film is rich and the texture is peculiar. Compared with the direct shooting effect of a digital camera, it is more attractive. Using film to shoot people, the skin will behave better, there will be more tonal details, there will be an unpredictable color And natural graininess.
2. Film is different from digital. During shooting, it is not possible to press the shutter twice, nor to look back at the pictures that have been taken, but to take the thoughts before and after each time you press the shutter and wait patiently for several days to see the photos. This charm is another look back at a beautiful moment, and it is also worth remembering!
3. You can shoot in the morning and afternoon every day. If there is no time slot suitable for you on the calendar, please feel free to send a message to contact me or specify a time slot.
4. The experience defaults to single film/1 film, double (couple/girlfriend) 960CNY/2 film; please contact me before booking for families and groups.
5. In order not to affect the experience, please arrive at the meeting place on time; in case of force majeure, the experience may be partially adjusted, and I will contact you in advance.

I am Henry, a multidisciplinary freelancer and slash youth living in Shanghai. I focus on travel experience, rural planning, lifestyle and portrait photography. I am a photographer certified by IC photo and Panorama. Many of my photography works have been purchased and used by travel agencies and magazines. I believe I can give you a better freeze. Many years ago, I rediscovered film photography! When you still need to buy 36 pieces of film to make every lens worthwhile, there, use the secret formula of chemical substances to wash it, and look forward to seeing the effect in the end, there is a kind of magic that releases Shanghai's charming and romantic Atmosphere! I am happy to share this forgotten magic with you, making you feel like a star in an old Shanghai movie!

I am also a certified travel experiencer on the travel OTA platform (Qunar, Fliggy, Tuniu), and I have been focusing on recording the bits and pieces of life that are worthy of collection: the yellowed old days in the Shanghai lanes, and the concentration under the Jerusalem Wailing Wall The readers, the proud Amman citizens of the ancient Roman theater, the barefoot girl on the beach of Galle Fort, the grandmother in the new North Jingtong grass ice shop, the Bedouin living in the cave in the ancient city of Petra, Luang Prabang early morning The devotees, the old Jewish men waiting for the sunset on the seaside walls of the old city of Jaffa, the young couple waiting for the train at the Alpine station in Nuwara Eliya, the Tibetan compatriots herding sheep by the Nam Lake, and the Arab nomads in the Wadi Rum desert. , The shepherd in the field of Bethlehem Beth Saho village, the big fat cat with the face of the old house in Yuyuan... If you like, I am willing to share these cute and interesting stories with you.

What I admire most is that living in Shanghai can have the opportunity to meet you from all over the world and create beautiful images and beautiful friendships. We have a rare encounter during the trip. I will cherish this fate and hope to bring you the best film travel experience in Shanghai. I also hope that the time with me will become your best memory in Shanghai.

上海最开心的事是预约了Henry的胶片拍摄,一个非常有思想又特别友善的摄影师,他的安排和拍摄都非常完美,而且认真的挑选每一个场景,胶片拍摄因为一次定型,所以需要摄影师的耐心和抓住瞬间的感觉,我觉得他都完全做到了。用手机给我拍的照片都很满意,期待成片出来。对了,我还提前预约了他的数码拍摄,遇见一个好摄影师不容易,遇见一个能善解人意成为朋友的摄影师更不简单,所以,选择他吧,没错的。给你的上海之旅增加一份美好的照片回忆吧!

像Henry这么追求完美且对细节要求如此严苛的摄影师非常少见,在跟他的合作中,耐心、友善和专业是整个体验贯彻始终的感受。作为第一次尝试街拍的我们,在后半程已经明显体力不支,然而Henry仍然用极高的敬业态度为我们调整行程以致轻松地收尾整个拍摄。我不能确定他是否是Airbnb上最棒的摄影师,但他已然成为我心目中最棒的摄影师朋友,请放心把最美的自己交给最专业的他吧。

非常新奇和完美的一次体验,从见面前的各种贴心嘱托,到拍摄过程中的细致讲解。整个过程让我体验到这就是和好朋友的一次街拍旅行,知道我有镜头恐惧症,行程中不停的和我分享各种有趣的故事,让人不知不觉的放松,没有特意的让人摆各种POSE,一切好像都是那么的随意和自然,神奇的是通过聊天就能感知到我想要拍摄的各种场景和主题,虽然还没有看到成果,但是我已经有了深深的期待。 PS:还请我喝地道的咖啡,推荐美食和各种风格的咖啡厅。
