People of Vietnam; Capturing Souls

Here’s the thing. I suck at landscape photography, I really do. I always feel so helpless on every trip of mine when it comes to taking pictures of “things” and I’m always disappointed with the results. Somehow, I’m only able to take pictures of buildings and scenery when people are involved. It’s not a secret that I enjoy street photography and try to get as close to people as possible. I simply love that thrill and rush I feel during taking pictures in the streets. It requires several things that might be difficult right at the start since you must leave your comfort zone, but the reward once you get used to them and learn how to handle “streets” is beyond exciting.

During my Vietnam trip I had the honor to see and meet many souls and also had the chance to photograph them. Step by step, little by little, it was getting easier to approach people and luckily thanks to my non-intimidating appearance and common sense, I never got in trouble.



Thanks for stopping by!


About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like.
