Ideal for street photography and portraits. See a different side of Hoi An, away from the crowds and all the shops.
This tour is for any camera, even a smartphone. The general idea is to improve your photography skills as much as possible, in a pleasant and photographic environment. We start with an explanation of the essential settings. Stay away from the auto and scene modes and take control of the camera. You are the only one who knows what kind of photo you want to take. A camera doesn’t.
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 photogenic people and you would be surprised how easy it is to take their photos.
When the more experienced concentrate more on shooting I help whoever needs help. That could be reinforcing settings and help setting up your shots.
Whatever the topic is, everything will be explained in an easy to understand way. You will see that the tour is very relaxing, no matter what your level is. 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.
Join and change your photography life forever!
