Moto Foto – Photography Tour

Moto Foto 18-9-14-0842

Are you proficient with your camera? Are you shooting lots to get one good one? Are you confused about all the buttons and dials, shutter speeds and apertures? Or have you come to Saigon and want to get to interesting locations?

You aren’t alone.

With the advent of smart phone cameras and the convenience of having a camera in your pocket, DSLR’s are quite a daunting piece of equipment. If you are looking for photos to put on social media then these kinds of camera phones are incredibly handy. But if you want to take control and understand photography then it is a good idea to have some one teach you. There aint much point lugging a pro camera around if you revert to your phone to take shots.

I am now offering two different MotoFoto options, Under Exposed (for those that want to learn techniques) and Drive by Shooting (for the experienced photographer looking for locations.)

Under Exposed

This tour is for those that want to learn about their camera and understand the principles of photography. Over the course of 4.5 hours let me teach you aMotoFoto 12-9-14-0348bout your camera and what it’s capable of. There are many aspects and techniques that are simple to learn and fun to practice.

You’ll learn whilst touring Saigon on the back of a motorbike. Don’t worry we’ll provide a safe driver, a trusty Honda, a helmet along with photography tuition.

You’ll be picked up by your driver and brought to our unique starting point where we’ll discuss the trip and basic photography techniques over a coffee before heading to a (very) local market to mingle and photograph well away from normal tourist crowds. This will give you lots of opportunities to capture street scenes and the chaotic energy of Saigon life.

We’ll also get to one of Saigon’s most atmospheric temples too, to and work on low light photography in a beautiful location.
