Ideal for street photography and portraits. See a different side of Hoi An, away from the crowds and all the shops.
We start with taking control of the camera. To improve your chances to take a good photo dramatically you have to tell the camera what you want. By learning just a few settings you will make a huge step forward.
Having the basics covered we start moving around through the interesting alleys of Hoi An, to capture life in a Vietnamese village, scenes that most travellers don’t see. There are lots of interesting people and you would be surprised how easy it is to take their photos. Street photography and people are closely related and there is a time when to approach and when not to approach. I will guide you through the whole process and I will help you with the correct settings throughout the whole tour.
The general idea of the tour is to make you more comfortable with your camera, to make you aware of your surroundings, to make you realize what it is what you want. It may sound complicated, but there is no need to worry. Everything will be explained in an easy to understand way and I will help you setting up your shots. You will see that the tour is very relaxing, no matter what your level is and what kind of camera you bring.
What else do we cover? Anything you like! Examples would be creativity, taking control of the light (and achieve results which would not be possible in the auto mode), what to put into a photo and what not, possible distractions, foregrounds, backgrounds, timing, contrast, colours, storytelling (with one singe image or with a set of images), the possibilities are endless.
On tour you will receive a password, which gives you access to the “clients” section. There you will find many articles on things I talk about on tour, especially the technical issues. These articles make sure you will never forget what you learnt! There are also lots of tips regarding books, post processing software, (free) courses and apps for your phone.
