While Saigon has evolved tremendously through the last fifteen years, Cholon neighborhood was able to preserve its traditions and its unique blend of Chinese and French influenced architecture. Its colorful back alleys, with its worn out yellow and green walls, offer an inspirational background to its dynamic street scene.
You will be introduced to different techniques relative to street photography, and put them into practice by capturing street vendors and passersby going about their daily activities. You will learn to “see” the street from a different angle, looking for the right light and anticipating your shots by working on your camera settings and composition in advance.
We will then walk through a local market with an incredible atmosphere, and find it to be a great opportunity to meet with the local crowd, share some friendly moments and shoot some great authentic portraits.
Finally, we’ll go visit a beautiful temple, where we will help you perfect your exposure technique in dealing with various light ambiances.
