The VT Art Salon Bonanza Series

The front of the Taipei Railway Station building which also houses the Taipei Main Station MRT stop. Strange lights illuminate it and I saw a lot of foreigners around.


The VT Art Salon Bonanza Series was taken on the 30th of December 2006 on our way to the VT Art Salon, a minimal lounge off Nanjing Rd. in Taipei. All photos were taken with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm Nikkor lens.


A nice skewed shot of the building as we head towards a taxi. Most of the oustide shots were taken in minutes with no preparation at all. Also, I was following people who were in a hurry, so I had seconds to snap off a few shots here and there.

  1. Hi Range,

    Happy New Year! We had a great time with you and Jo this weekend and I’ve been anxiously waiting for your latest additions and comments. It was well worth the wait and all those photos that you took the other night look gorgeous. Great job as usual. Keep it comin’!


  2. Hey Carrie!
    Thanks for the comment!

    Most of the pictures of people inside the bar didn’t turn out that great because of the lack of light. I could have used the flash and I did for some shots, but they didn’t turn out great either. Maybe we will have to bring Jo’s pro flash with us next time, to take pictures of people inside.

    Jo’s lens and her experience are better suited for people shots than mine. I like playing with lights and exposures.
