Mr. Selfish and I took a two-day photography workshop when we were still living in Orlando. Since then, we’ve learned to take photos in manual mode. Mr. Selfish usually uses our Canon Rebel while I still use our Canon Powershot, which is a point and click but still has a manual mode. I also read “Understanding Exposure,” which is a great beginner’s book on photography.
Hoi An was the first place I saw that had a photography tour. Although I thought that the class may be a little basic for us, I convinced Mr. Selfish to sign up for it anyhow. I wanted to do the sunset tour. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available so we had to take the sunrise tour, which starts at 4:45am. It was early but we figured that sunrise photos at the fisherman village would be worth it. The weather wasn’t too cooperative that day since it was completely overcast but we still managed to take some nice photos.
First, we took a boat to the Duy Hai Fisherman Village. It was quite frantic since the fishermen were pulling in their catch from last night and there was lots (and I mean LOTS) of haggling over the prices for said catch. Mostly, the locals ignored us, and we took candid photos.
