How it started

A Why-Not Submission

Accidentally came across the Sony RX Moments Contest 2018 on Instagram, wasn’t really aiming for anything, but there were some good photos sitting in my hardisk and flickr that need some exposure to the world. So I’ve decided to submit and showcase them!

Check out 5 of my shortlisted entries below:

sony rx moment – hongkong megablock
sony rx moment – northern light
sony rx moment – norway lofoten
sony rx moment – bergen

Process

Street Photography is all about the MOMENT

All the entries submitted were taken with Sony RX100 IV, check out my short and sweet blog post about this little devil.  I love this compact camera for its highly portable size and great capabilities, such as electric ND filter, high dynamic range, and timelapse function.

The winning entry below is also one of my favourite photos taken at the Quarry Bay of Hong Kong. This giant block was featured in several music video and movies such as the Transformer. While we arrived at the spot, there was a queue of young tourists waiting to get their Instagram photos taken. I hesitated and walked around the premises while observing the livelihood of people.

It was this moment where this uncle standing in the stroke of sunlight, looking over to the youngster. That MOMENT, I released my shutter.

And the Top Prize goes to
