By Etienne / May 5, 2021 / 1 Comment

Being based in a country that has managed the Covid crisis exceptionally well, we were lucky enough to be able to embark on a photography tour in central Vietnam on the last weekend of April 2021.  I decided to run this tour only twice this year (instead of every month) as many of my students…

Now, I’d like to focus the assignment on our latest photography tutorial about balance in composition.
