Hanoi – School Girls

Photography

After the trip to Sapa – I was obviously lazy and decided to not go Halong Bay and roam around Hanoi. The street shoot at that time wasn’t really fun. Not being a “street photographer” then, I was roaming around with a 70-200 and started shooting every damn thing that moved! Seriously.

Nowadays, when I do street shoot, the longest I carry is 35mm. Most of the time would be either 24mm or 28mm. Some instances, I will carry 21mm, but of course that is far more difficult to compose as it is very wide. In addition to that, my Leica will need an external viewfinder in order to compose 21mm. 24mm wasn’t so bad as I can just judge thru the original view finder.

Photo above, was shot from along the street. From the exif data, it was shot on 200mm, means that I was quite a distance away. Surprised to see the school girl can see me and looked at my camera. Not the best way to shoot to be honest!
