We’ve been back from Myanmar for 2 months now but still have many more images to process. It really is a land of wonderful photographic opportunities. From the intensity of Mandalay and Yangon to the peace of Inle lake and the mystical awe of Bagan.
Filming in Myanmar was a joy partly due to the willingness of its people to be photographed, indeed many locals insisted their photos were taken, making my job so much easier than having to ask permission.
Shooting the sunrises at Bagan was dependant on certain factors such as getting a perfect sunrise and finding a vantage point that wasn't over crowded. We were blessed with both and came away with some very pleasing images. We had a tremendous experience taking a balloon ride at sunrise over the archaeological zone in Bagan. Floating low of the temples is and experience never to be forgotten. We used Oriental Ballooning who we can heartily recommend for price and professionalism. Our pilot Johnny made for a fantastic, personal experience.
Using a micro four thrids kit meant I could mean could carry a wide range of lenses whilst keeping the weight down. My kit comprised of:
LUMIX GH5 Body
LUMIX GH4 body
Zhiyan Crane 2 Gimbal
Manfrotto Be Free tripod
All the best images are still in the process of the being uploaded to the galleries. Below is one of two films shot in Maynamar in ultra high definition 4K.
