Disciple monk – Photo to share

 I had the privilege to join a group of photographers to Siem Reap, Cambodia where we had a 5-day photo-safari around the ruins of Angkor. It was an annual affair that being the 5th installment a.k.a Crossing Bridges 5.

This photo was taken at a temple just outside Siem Reap. This disciple monk was curious as to what I was shooting. He soon consented to pose for me. The background however wasn't too interesting so I got hold of a broken umbrella lying nearby and used it as a backdrop. It was early morning and light was coming through the trees to his left- I had to increase the ISO to get a decent shutter speed.

Used my Nikon D3 + Nikon 70-200mm Aperture Priority @ f/3.2 1/100s ISO400.

Learning point: Always watch the background. You may create your own e.g the umbrella in my case.
