The Morning HarvestThe Morning HarvestWoman harvests water lilies growing in pond, Châu Dôc. An Giang Province, Vietnam. Breakfast buffet at the hotel at 6, then we hopped on the motorbike to drive to the lily pond we had been to last night. We arrived at 7:30. We got in one boat and our model got in another boat. 


We spent the next hour shooting this woman "harvesting" water lily flowers. It was all staged for us--she was using flowers she had cut earlier. We really worked the scene and shot from different directions using different backgrounds. I was a sweaty mess and my glasses were fogging up. I thought I overshot at almost 200 pix, but Minh got over 500 shots! I told him he better learn Lightroom to help him get through the his edit.
