On every street in Vietnam (Part 1)

on the streets of vietnam

The last couple of weeks has been quite an adventure between street photography and underwater photography with a couple of workshops thrown in to keep things interesting. The series of photos presented here try to capture the streets of Hanoi and give you a glimpse into what its liek to be on these streets.  In amongst this I also managed to completely convert a non-photographer into a serious street photographer (more on this in a future post).  The photos presented here are mainly taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Olympus 17.5mm lens, Olympus 12mm lens and the Voigtlander 17.5mm lens.  I did spend a lot of time taking a little street video withthe Panasonic GH3 though the processing and editing of this is ging to take a lot longer then the still images.  Images have been shot in raw with minimal colour editing and no cropping.  Some images have been converted to Black and White generally with high contrasts set.
