Photography of the Flower Fields in Hanoi

When it comes to December and January the spinach fields on the outskirt of Hanoi start blooming. If you plan to travel to Hanoi during this time and if you love photography of flower fields and farming life, then you may like to contact Paradissa for a photography tour to one of these lovely fields.

The tour can be done by car, or by motorbike or by bicycle and can be combined with a number of nearby tourist attractions. The tour can take a full day or half a day. If you take half a day trip, then it's recommended you do it in the afternoon when you can take advantage of good lighting conditions and when there are a lot of farmers working in the fields. Your photos will definitely be much more vivid with authentic local life then.

All fields are quite easily accessible and local farmers are friendly, which means you can have a telephoto zoom lens (24-105mm, 70-200mm) or a walkabout one (18-55mm, 16-35mm, 17-40mm…). A lens with capability for macro photos and for blurring the background is preferable. There's a high road which runs the full length of the fields which provide good angles for panoramic photos of the landscape. Do expect to walk back and forth quite a lot on this tour. Paradissa's photography guide will assist you with choosing the right angles and with tricks as to how to get the photos of your dream.
