What To Expect
Experience the spirit of Siem Reap at night - be it at the night market or the beautiful square. With long exposure photography, we can capture the movement of objects passing by the busy roads. We will also try to "empty" a busy bar street by using extra long exposure and take great shots from the local night markets. Have you seen the rush when the market people set up their sales stalls? It is worth it to be there. The tour goes from 7pm to 10pm
We will have a brief introduction into photographic parameters such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. We will show you how you handle all this parameters in order to get the best possible night shot.
The tour starts at the Art Market Bridge close to the Old Market in the city center. We will take photos at the busy Old Market, street kitchens and the colorful cloth shops. Afterwards, we will visit the Siem Reap Art Market and take pictures of items which are perfectly lit by artificial light.
The second part of the tour is all about long exposure photography. We will "empty" a busy street (making people disappear in the pictures) and we will take photos from passing vehicles such as Tuktuks and motorbikes. We will focus this part of the tour on photographing moving objects under low light conditions.
The third part of the tour is dedicated to "Light Painting." We will show you how to use a flashlight or an off-camera flash to highlight the contours of a statue.
