Photography tips for Myanmar Photography Tours
An impressive array of religious, cultural and bizarre festivals fill the Myanmar calendar. These events can be extremely rewarding for travel photographers, but they demand a certain amount of skill: you have to work fast and often in crowded conditions. However, with a little effort you can take home a number of memorable pictures – and have a good time.
The single most important part of photographing a festival is to make the plan superficially in advance. you are to find out what is happening and when;. collect the precise and update information from a number of sources.
02-Find the right spot at right time
Any festival you are planning to attend and enjoy for photographing , the major key is to get a good position at right time . Otherwise you may end up in a sea of people and only come away with photos of the back of someone’s head. So you are to be at the right place earlier than other photographers and local people as well . It is because you are to take a few moments to do location survey to check the best spots where you can make the great picture like no others .Finding a high vantage point is important to shoot from a distance with a telephoto lens. If there are no restrictions, then carry a small camera bag and push to the front. Close-up pictures taken with a telephoto lens can give a real sense of the action.
03-Prepare and bring the proper gears
Festivals can be a hostile place for both you and your equipment. Dust, crowds, water –So you are to decide the most proper lens and gears that you should prepare and bring to festival ground . It is because you will have the concerns over some of your unnecessary gears that will be with you at festival ground .
Carry a spare set of batteries, and also memory cards. And bring a bottle of water and even a couple of energy bars. There is no point in having a spare set of batteries if you are too exhausted to keep going.
04-Work the light
Light conditions can be tricky and beyond your control at a festival. You can be faced with contrasting midday light, overcast light or deep shadow. The light shines directly from ahead when shooting in bright conditions in the middle of the day. This produces unflattering deep shadows, especially when taking portraits. Use fill-in flash to lighten the shadows; even a simple compact camera has this setting – usually called ‘flash-always on’ or ‘forced flash’.
In low light conditions, select a faster ISO sensitivity if using digital. Set the white balance to ‘cloudy’ to remove the blue cast that occurs when working in shadows.
Higher sensitivity allows you to choose a higher shutter speed to avoid the camera shake or subject blur that can occur at fast-moving events.
A busy festival is not the time to be fiddling with your equipment. Although it doesn’t produce the best exposure, consider shooting with your camera set on ‘automatic’ and use ‘autofocus’. This way you won’t miss the action while fumbling with your aperture at key moments.
05-Face the crowd
Festivals are an excellent time to take portraits. People are relaxed and happy and more open to being approached than during their day-to-day lives. Celebrations also attract a wide range of individuals, making it possible to photograph a whole array of people in one place.
A telephoto lens allows you to get in close and take a frame-filling shot, whereas a wide lens places your subject in their environment, producing a picture that says more about them and where they are.
Always ask before taking someone’s picture, even if it is just with a smile. You will be rewarded with a more characterful picture –and a friendly encounter. Digital is wonderful for portraits as you can show people the results instantly.
