The winners talk about their ways to success 

    As a photographer who won the champions in the two categories, Ip Chin Wa has been fascinated about sports photography. He chose two pieces “Invincible” and “Strive to Move Forward” for the competition mainly because the movements, atmosphere and implication of these photos convey the message of the activity. As for the ways to success in sports photography, he pointed out that he needed to have a workable plan before taking the photos, and selected suitable equipment such as telephoto lens and short focus lens for the photo taking. In the process of capturing a photo, one should attempt to take photos from various angles. As long as one tries “as many times as possible”, one can get a good photo out of it.
