Capture Vietnam’s capital after dark, from bright and bustling markets to exotic food stalls on lowlit corners, the headlights of city traﬃc tracing beams in the night air. We start overlooking Hoan KIem Lake, where friends, families and lovers gather by stalls set up along the shore. Streetlamps and the neon signs of surrounding shops illuminate the lake walkway, and we’ll look at how to take a context shot for a photo story encapsulating the scene from above. We then wander among the crowds to take relationship, portrait and detail shots of the people we encounter, before heading up to the busy streets around St. Joseph’s Cathedral. The cafes and alleyways around this historic landmark buzz with young people catching up over coﬀee, lemon tea or bowls of ‘Che’, and we’ll capture the new face of this youthful country.
From here, we head over to Ba Dinh Square, where Ho Chi Minh once read Vietnam’s Declaration of Independence, and now a popular evening gathering place for local families. Finally, we photograph the atmospheric lowering of the Vietnamese ﬂag in front of Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum by Uncle Ho’s white-uniformed guards. It all makes for an unforgettable night exploring Hanoi’s life after dark, with new skills and unque pictures to remember it
