Wangyou Forest

Wow. Cedric, the fog is rolling in.
Yeah, it・s absolutely gorgeous.
It・s a special effect.
Yeah. Oh look it・s a good spot here.
Michella, what is this place?
This is Wangyou Forest. Literally it means :Forget Your Troubles Forest.;
Nice.
Especially if you like photography, you・re definitely going to leave your worries behind while you・re here.
Yeah.
And I thought, since you・re a professional film director, and a photographer, perhaps you・d like to share some tips?
Sure, it・s my pleasure. You know when you are in a place like this, there・s so much nature, so much beauty around, you want to capture the maximum of that, so what you want to use is a wide angle lens. Now, how do you know your lens is wide angle? There's usually a number associated with your lens, and the lower the number, the wider the lens. For instance, what is yours?
This is a 16-35mm.
See? 16mm is very low, it means your angle is very wide.
Yeah, so you can kind of suck everything into the lens.
Exactly.
And into the camera.
So what kind of pictures are you taking today?
Well, I really like ponds and puddles, the reason being they give you good reflections. Reflections create a dreamlike, a painting-like effect. So today I'm going to focus on not what's above the ground, but what・s right on the surface.
Excellent idea.
You・re shooting black and white!
Yeah, because the place is very beautiful, also kind of desolate, so what I・m trying to do with black and white, I want to retain some of the dramatic mood, the dramatic ambiance.
Cedric, when people say that Taiwan has beautiful landscape, to a lot of people, the first thing that comes to mind is Hualien or Taitung. But I think Nantou really has something going for itself. Look at this beautiful bamboo forest, and this is just a tiny, tiny piece of it.
Yeah, and not only is it very beautiful, it's also much, much less touristy. Look around, it・s just us.
Just us, and the spiders.
And the cameraman.
Pohsun!
