Hoi An Old Town and Subject in Traditional Vietnamese Dress

The focus is on capturing beautiful shots around historic Hoi An Old Town. With a subject in traditional Vietnamese clothing (ao dai and non la) you have a wonderful opportunity to capture stunning shots of quintessential Vietnam, something unique to Hoi An 360. The white ao dai contrasts and compliments the vibrant yellow walls of the city.

 

Having a subject to shoot, there will also be more time to discuss camera settings and composition without the stress of chasing fleeting moments.

Learn Camera and Composition

The tour starts near the iconic old Japanese Bridge and begins with an overview and discussion of your camera and how to use the various settings. You will have the opportunity to practice what we discuss; shutter speed, aperture, focus etc. It’s important to learn this and see the results right away in a creatively nurturing environment without pressure.

 

The next stage, as we move around old town, will focus on composition and learning to see creatively. You will walk through narrow alleys and past old buildings. The possibilities are many and Hoi An 360 will introduce and encourage you to practice the three basic rules of every good picture.

Central Market and Refining Your Technique

You will also have the chance to see the morning market, a bustle of activity with lots of color and Vietnamese hats; many photo opportunities. It’s here where you can start focusing on the faster-paced environment and catching the action, making good use of the techniques just learned.

 

Finally, we will settle at a coffee shop and review the morning. We will have a chance to review pictures and discuss composition and camera setting further as well as an overview of post-processing techniques.

ABOUT HOI AN 360

Hoi An 360 was created by Alden Anderson after 6 months of traveling around Vietnam and more than two years of travelling around the world. He loves to connect with people and discover how they live and to try and understand their culture and way of life. It shows in his photography as well as the stories of his subjects. This desire to explore and learn about the world has taken him to the snow swept plateaus of Newfoundland to the towering peaks surrounding Mount Everest.

 

By 18 Alden was traveling around the world on a video documentary team, from maximum security prisons in South Africa to the streets of Tokyo and the Sydney Opera House. He has worked as a Photographer, Editor, Cinematographer, Visual Effects Artist and Producer on live performances, TV shows and major Hollywood movies and in 2009 he won an Emmy award for his outstanding visual effects work on ESPN.

 

While he loved his career, the desire to see the world and learn about the culture and history of far off lands never left him. And so in 2016 he decided to leave his job and set off on a journey around the world, which eventually brought him to Vietnam.

 

Alden now resides in Hoi An, Vietnam. He has created Hoi An 360 to share his passion for photography and for the culture. At Hoi An 360, you will learn not only the technical and creative aspects of photography but also the culture of Vietnam and connect with the locals.
