Chiang Mai or how I survived Dylan and Shawn’s Photography Class. Episode II

ChiangmaiLantern_059South East Asia Backpacker Magazine sponsored a 3-day photography seminar in Chiang Mai, Thailand with two great photographers Dylan and Shawn (Shawn’s work). Next to SEA Backpacker office is a good coffee place, Just FYI.

We are on Day two (Day one is over there ← ) and today we are going to cover portrait, water, HDR and night photography in and around Chiang Mai.

I don’t care where you go in the world, ancient civilizations always put their stuff on top of a mountain, hill side, cave, or bug infested jungle and to make things worst they create these elaborate mile-long staircases just to test your endurance. And, if they couldn’t find a damn mountain or some remote location they’d build one just for spite, Wat Doi Suthep, a Buddhist temple, is just such a place.

We stop for a snack before we head for the waterfall; fried rice packed in intestine and roasted on a stick. We passed up the other delicacies.

        WOAH! yes!

        Keep me updated when you roll into the city!

        I go to school in Greensboro, where dreams typically go to die, but go back to Raleigh way too frequently!

        Regardless, I owe you a cup!
