Sunset with the farmers
After a short briefing on the essential camera settings we get on a boat to go to the countryside, for a sunset with the farmers. 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. 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 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.
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.
Low light photography
The Sunset With The Farmers tour has the option to be extended by one hour, for a more detailed look on night photography. Additional costs are US$ 15 or VND 350,000 per person. If you don’t have a tripod, we can provide one. Also for those who shoot with a smartphone the additional hour shows you how to get the best results. If you are into night photography, you may want to sign up for Hoi An By Night.
On any walk you will receive a password, which gives you access to the “clients” section of Photo Voyager, the main business website. 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. Another place you may want to check out is Creating Images. It gives an insight on how to create images.
