By Etienne / May 21, 2015 / 0 Comments

Yes, I know, I haven’t posted anything in a while. Between the very busy wedding season that has just ended, the hotels and resort photography, and the numerous number of photography workshops I have ran, I had no time to put creativity in words.   But this busy time is now (almost) over and tomorrow…

  I am not sure how many photos I titled “river sunrise”… I should come up with something new!   Another sunrise near the fishing nets of Hoi An. Is has now been months that our sunrises and sunsets are covered with a “haze” that does not give us a clear light. This is not normal…

By Etienne / March 13, 2014 / 5 Comments

I need your advise on this one. I took these photos this morning and I can’t make up my mind on which one to chose. Originally I liked the first one, as it is quite original. I have done myself and have seen many time this kind of photo, and I thought the kid looking…
