Sneak Peak | Fashion Shoot in Hanoi
by Aaron Joel Santos
I’ve been a bad blogger of late. And it’s not for lack of content to post, but rather for an excess of topics I’d like to talk about. I’m overwhelmed. Which I admit happens pretty easily most days. I’ve been traveling between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Dalat for the past week, scouting and prepping for a big ad shoot with Noi Pictures. After which I’ll go straight to Ke Ga and the Princess D’annam Resort with Justin Mott and Esian Wedding Photography for another job. Then it’s off to India to attend one of my best friend’s weddings in New Delhi. Lastly, I’ll take a short vacation in Sri Lanka and decompress before I get married at the end of May. It’s kind of exhausting just typing it all out. And exciting.
So anyway: here’s something. From a fashion shoot two days ago in Hanoi, Vietnam. I brought along some instant film, and played around a bit for a few of the photographs. The shot above is taken from the part of the film that most people throw away–the reverse image that prints and then kind of fades away after you pull the paper apart. I really like the look. But the trick is to photograph or scan the image before it disappears. Otherwise, you’re out of luck. Thanks to Lucie and Dara, the designer and model, for entertaining my whims and making it a great shoot. More later. Hopefully lots.
