Chiang Mai is full with photography opportunities and in only one day you will experience a wide richness of culture in diverse locations around the city:
-Traditional local transport
-The authentic flavor of bustling markets
-History & Beauty at two unique temples
-Skilled craftspeople working traditionally
The day will begin at a coffee shop where your instructor will share some foundational teaching to get you ready for the day to come. The tour will then start at Chiang Mai’s biggest and busiest markets:
Skills to be taught:
(1) Light as a the most essential ingredient of photography. Your instructor will teach you how your camera reads and responds to light, and how to make a good exposure. You will learn the technique of composition and how to actually look more carefully. Your instructor will demonstrate the impact point of view has when framing your subject. You will for sure gain a new appreciation of what you see when you look through your camera.
(2) The market will be a great option to learn how to photograph people. Northern Thai people generally are not shy of being photographed and will be happy to play.
Then, it will be time for lunch.
In the afternoon, you will have time to play around with your camera’s settings.
You will learn low light photography, how using a wide aperture can isolate your subject even against a cluttered background.
Your instructor could also teach you about flash photography.
The last stop of the day will be about creating sharp images.
You will try to photograph craftspeople working on pressed metal, three dimensional pictures at one of Chiang Mai’s most beautifully decorated temples. At this location, you will experience a challenging situation to bring together much of what you will have learnt during the day: looking at lighting, capturing the action, shutter speed and aperture control and isolating your subject.
