I always loved mailboxes, and this one looks great at the Saigon Post Office. It’s right at the edge of the pavement (so I only used a simple light setup), and the well lit post office at night provides a beautiful background.
It was a foggy, hazy and cold morning in Dalat. I was hoping for some nice compositions, and I got them, but the light and the sky just wasn’t there. Which gave me the idea later for the “pastel” theme – muted, a bit cartoonish colours.
I went on a location scouting trip with SnapIT travel. One of the places we visited was the Ton That Dam apartment building near the Green Bridge (Cau Mong). Olive cafe was another. Nhat Ha was one of the models who joined us for the trip. Read on to find out more about these places.
I was there both as a guest (and recipient of the Teacher of the Year award) and as a photographer (VUS purchased some of the photos I took).
This gallery is larger than usual, with a selection of 36 shots below. I thought it would be nice to show the kind of shots I’m looking to take at each event. Of course, not all events have all the elements shown here.
The Marmalades playing at Saigon Outcast’s Melting Pot 3 art festival. Funky soulful dance house madness – incredible concert band, check their facebook page for their latest concert.
This is a 211 seconds exposure. I used a 9-stop ND filter (halves the light reaching the camera sensor 9 times) to slow down exposure time, thus blurring everything that moves. This effect is most visible on the water of course. Also, every ship that passed by became completely invisible!
