Capture a slice of Vietnamese life unknown to all but a few visitors during this early morning photography tour down at the docks. As fishermen bring in their overnight catch, you'll master the fundamentals of documentary photography. Learn how to shoot in the changing early morning light and how to capture a fast-moving scene like the bustling waterfront. Finish this tour with expertly composed photos and an inside glimpse into Vietnamese working life.

Come and experience the Danang riverside by night. See the ever-changing skyline by sunset, walk over the famous Dragon and Han bridges and see the colorful city from the river.  This tour will show you the best of Danang at night and allow you to focus on long exposure photography (so bring a tripod along!) but also on low light street photography.  We will focus on how to get the best photos of the colorful lights and create impactful photos of the cityscape but also tell a story of the people there. Take photos of the locals and tourists alike mingling at coffee shops, bars and small street stalls in the evening. Come along on this tour to see how the locals spend their evenings.  If you take this tour on a weekend, be prepared for a surprise at the Dragon Bridge at the end of the tour.
