Poring Over the Picture
While on a trip to Vietnam, I decided to be adventurous and hire a man with a motorbike to drive me around the countryside. I was hoping to find authentic images of local people doing everyday things, and so when I spotted this woman clearing out chunks of dirt from a rice paddy, I immediately asked the driver to stop so I could go out and photograph her. After asking her permission, I used a long lens and a fast shutter speed to freeze the action of her movements and made several beautiful photographs.
