Barche vietnamite in Hoi An

Queste tipiche imbarcazioni in legno sono molto fotogeniche, soprattutto se guidate da una donna vietnamita con il tipico cappello conico. Ad Hoi An, lungo il fiume, se ne vedono molte e il momento migliore per fotografarle. è la mattina presto, quando i turisti in giro sono pochi e la luce è morbida e delicata. Per queste foto ho utilizzato, sulla Leica M typ 262, l’Elmarit 90mm, per isolare meglio il soggetto, eliminando ogni elemento di disturbo intorno. L’acqua del fiume come sfondo, […]
