Loved the time spent and the photos I brought home 🙂
My husband and I signed up for the full day workshop thinking this would be a great way to see the highlights of the temple complex at Angkor Wat. We knew we did not have enough time to be able to see everything and needed someone who knew the right places to go to have a great experience and get great photos to bring home. I am the one behind the camera and my husband then puts the slide shows and books together after our trips.
We really learned a lot from Eric. He took me out of my comfort zone of just wanting to capture the temple as a building and taught me to take more interesting images that still tell the story of each of the unique temples. I will say, i was not initally thrilled with taking so many “head shots” BUT……….now that i am back home and have looked over the images i brought back with me, these are some of my favorites shots —THANK YOU ERIC!!!! —
My husband got great editing tips over our lunch time review session too! We started off with the sunrise over Angkor Wat and then progressed around the area to other temples hitting them when crowds were fewer to be able to get the shot we wanted and have fewer tourists come home in our pictures. 🙂 some time after lunch my husband and i knew we wanted to spend another day with Eric to not only be able to see more temples but to see what else we could take home and continue to practice and incorporate into our photo outing. So we did another outing the next day and went to even more temple locations while still enjoying Eric’s instruction and taking suggestions to work on in the future.
If we are again, in SE Asia or vicinity, we will definitely be asking if Eric has any workshops for that region…
How to photograph the Angkor Temples photography workshop
A half day photography course with Eric D Vries at the temples of Angkor, Siem Reap, starting with an introduction and explanation of camera settings, light and composition at a beautiful location downtown Siem Reap including practise before heading off to a selection of temples inside Angkor Park. During a short coffee/tea break we’ll have a closer look at your pictures taken in the morning.
At the moment I’m selecting images from my archive to re-edit and also working on new stuff shot recently both digital as analog. Most of the photographs are taken during the photography workshops over the years and on some trips abroad. Have a look at the selection here…
