As the author put, he has gradually prefered still photography while aging and particularly enjoys constant learning from the master LANG Jingshan whose photographic creation is characterized by traditional Chinese painting style. "As the title 'Picturesque Landscape' goes, my photographic shooting at will is just like making paintings. Such a lesson from sketches creation is my favourite experience, and all my exhibits fall into three categories: waterside landscape, blooming flowers and people's life. The absence of framework decoration indicates my liberal creation beyond conventional dos and don'ts," he introduced.
