On this tour you can have it all. Sunrise, beautiful light in the old town when it is still quiet, portraits, street photography, a touch of culture.
We meet at 5AM in the old town to witness and photograph the beautiful colours in the sky, while the street lights are still on, so you can actually see the buildings. Once the lights are off we have a crash course on the essential camera settings, if you need this. When the sun rises everything will lit up beautifully and we move around to benefit from the best light. I will show you how to look for the best light. Often you will see young Vietnamese women dressed in traditional clothes with the conical hat. I will show you how easy it is to approach them and to also take photos of them.
Once the best light is gone, the locals start racing around on their motorbikes and the first tourists show up we go to a different part of town to a more traditional local area, away from all tourists. Here we focus more on street photography, Vietnamese culture, learning how to take portrait photos and tons of other things. This area is also a tour on its own (the 7AM till 11AM tour) and has excellent reviews.
At the end we sit down and while enjoying a drink there is time to relax and discuss.
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!

For the more experienced photographers, if you wish to bring a tripod, you only need it for the first 30 minutes.
On this tour there is not enough time to teach tripod-photography, as light changes too quickly. To learn more about low light photography with a tripod I recommend to go on the extended afternoon tour or on the night tour.
The booking system is currently under revision and hopefully it will be up and running soon.
