First there will be a briefing on the essential camera settings and a few important things. Then we get on a boat, to go to the countryside. There we will go around in an area which contains rice fields, all sorts of crops and villages. Depending on the season you will see (many) workers in the fields.
We will witness the beautiful changes of light. For portrait photographers the golden hour is the perfect time to shoot. The warm soft glow of the sun creates a beautiful atmosphere and some of the best light of the day.
In the village we will have more contact with locals and do some portrait photography. Along the way you will learn many aspects of photography and whoever needs it gets support. We will focus on three ways of making the quality of the composition much better and wherever possible we go even further than that.
As the sun sets further we will walk along the river towards the boat, which brings us back to Hoi An. The last part is dedicated to a workshop on low light photography, in Hoi An town. It covers all the basics, shooting with your camera handheld and with a tripod. For a more detailed workshop on low light you may want to go for the option to extend the tour with one hour.
This tour has the option to be extended by one hour. The extra hour is fully dedicated to low light photography and to benefit you should have a camera with manual settings. Additional costs are VND 250,000 per person. If you don’t have a tripod, we can provide one. A tripod is essential for the extra hour.
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. When you hear all the options the main camera settings have to offer, you may feel confused at times. These articles make sure you will never forget what you learnt!
