Cho Lon at Têt together with Lightroom workshop session to come next January, 21st & 22nd.

2017 is already here but the Lunar new year is more and more in the atmosphere in Saigon and what a better time than a week before Têt to visit the Chinese area of Cho Lon ?  We will get lost in the middle of what will definitely be the busiest place of the city and see how people are getting ready for new year.

Then we propose you to join us on a one day session to learn everything necessary to master what has become today the best photographer’s companion: Adobe Lightroom.

Expect to learn to download, organize, manage, develop, and present your best pictures using your own laptop, ensuring a smooth transition to digital photography workflow. All details about Lightroom workshops are HERE

New Lightroom workshop session to come next September, 21st

Given the large uncertainty about the climate, I do not really want to take our cameras in the rain and I am therefore proposing a  Lightroom session highly complementary and even mandatory for any photographer :

1. Adobe Lightroom Training Workshop

During this 1 day workshop I will introduce you to Adobe Lightroom  software specifically developed for today’s digital photographers. Expect to learn to download, organize, manage, develop, and present your photography using your own laptop, ensuring a smooth transition to digital photography workflow.

2-  1/2 day session on saturday morning, June 23rd in HCMC.

Our next 1/2 day workshop will be on June 23rd from 8 am to 1:00 pm in Ho Chi Minh City. The theme will be “Life along the water“.

3 hours of shooting and 1 hour of critics and comments on our photos (with the help of some fresh drink). We are lucky enough to have water everywhere in this city with some great places full of life. So we are going to visit people living on their boats or with direct access to the river.

So we will hang out with our cameras for about 3 hours and then watch and comment everybody’s pictures on a computer.

3- Full day session near Can Gio on sunday, June 24th.

Well it is another great day that is waiting for us here. We will leave HCMC in the morning and head south-west to reach the beaches of Can Gio.

We will visit the Sea Market there before stepping on a boat to reach a fishermen Island after a 45 mns trip. We will spend some time there, share lunch with a family there and explore this island.

Then back on the boat to reach the beach of Can Gio. Bathing suits are welcome of course but we will spend some time working on the documentary photography technic with people working to collect sand and clam eggs at low tide.

And back to HCMC at the end of the afternoon.

More details and pictures about that day are HERE

Hello everyone

Back to Saigon after our full day session last sunday in Tay Ninh Province. And already planning our next 1/2 day session on Saturday morning, June 16th, from 7:30 am to approx.1:00 pm.

So I was thinking that since I have my “Saigon Kids” exhibition starting on suday, the perfect theme would be “Kids”.

Kids in the streets, in their environment, or portraits, close-up……..a lot of choice and a great theme to play more with our cameras’s settings.

So if you are free on saturday morning from 7:30 am to approx. 1:00 pm, just join the group.

Hi everybody

Our next session is a Full day session. June 10th is the day to leave that crowded, noisy and polluted city of Saigon to enjoy some peacefulness in the countryside.

We will drive 1 and 1/2 hour to reach Tay Ninh Province. Local market there, then a boat trip on the river to reach a Vietnamese family whose house is lost in the middle of the rice fields. Some great time is expecting us there and this is a good way to discover Vietnam a little bit more.

Back to Saigon in the evening with a stop in a Cao Dai Temple on the way.

More informations and pictures of the place HERE

Maximum 6 persons will join so that we really can work on photography as well as possible. And anyway, we are not a travel agency right ? 🙂
