Luang Prabang / Laos
Maison-Souvannaphoum once belonged to the royal family in Laos. Today it's a peach of a resort just on the edge of the historical town of Luang Prabang. We used this stunning backdrop for a photography shoot with a difference, taking one of our food-photography workshops here to enjoy and photograph. Here's a quick preview of what we went home with in the camera.
Ewen Bell's other website is called "Photography for Travellers", an online guide rich in features both practical and philosophical. Field guides to wonderful locations, insights into techniques plus inspiring idea to help you think differently about the art of photography.
Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
