Behind The Lens

Location
Near Hoi An, Vietnam
Time
Midday
Lighting
The lighting was overcast. I was traveling with another photographer who is writing a book on Vietnam. We wanted to use a set of old doors as the back drop. When we opened the doors we were shocked to find that it opened to an old chicken coop. We both decided we were going in. Carefully placing my jacket on the ground amongst the feathers and other items one would find in a coop, we began shooting. The interpreter was standing on the other side of the doors. I asked her to see if they would hold hands. This shot was the result. They were so much fun to photograph!
Equipment
Nikon D610, 24-70 f2.8 lens
Inspiration
Looking for an old typical Vietnamese couple. Our guide/interpreter knew of them and they definitely filled the bill.
Editing
Lightroom, photoshop, NIK silver effects pro
In my camera bag
Nikon D810, Nikon D610, Nikon 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8, 105 F2.8, 16-35 F4, Lee Filter system, Nikon SB-700 Think Tank Essentials Rolling Bag
Feedback
I do a lot of environmental portrait photography all over the world. It is essential to have a guide and interpreter to help posing and getting these images. Spending a little time with the people before you even begin to photograph them seems to help putting them at ease with you. As a former flight attendant for a major airline for many years, that job helped me to naturally interact with people easily. A smile goes a long way!
