The Tai Hang HipstaPak

By on April 1, 2016

Tai Hang was originally a small village that has been all but swallowed up by Hong Kong, which seems to be expanding at phenomenal speed. The village was known for its famous dragon dance, meant to ward off bad luck; the dragon keeps on dancing and it has even danced its way onto China’s third national list of intangible cultural heritage. These days, Tai Hang is a trendy neighborhood filled with cafes, shops and restaurants.


The Tai Hang HipstaPak comes with a lens, Chan and a film, Kowloon 1839.


Chan is a really interesting element for low-light conditions, adding a glow to your highlights and opening up the brightness in your images.

Kowloon is another Hong Kong neighborhood and 1839 was the year that saw a raging battle between the Chinese and the British. The main characteristic of this film is its ragged edge, reminiscent of old posters, plastered on street walls and subsequently torn off only to be replaced by others.

It’s playtime! Go ahead and tag your pictures on Flickr, Facebook or Instagram with #hipstography.
