I received this experience as a wedding gift from my friends! After years of creepily commenting on Dave's instagram account and following him and his wife's blog, I finally met him at 7.15am on 12/17/16 at Campbell St Market. Dave is a non-didactic and encouraging teacher who taught me all the photography basics -- including how to finally use manual mode on my camera and VSCO cam on my iPhone. You're free to use any camera you're comfortable with but I managed to use both in the end. We went through framing, lighting, exposures, and most of all -- how to patiently wait for action shots. That, I think, may have been the most difficult for me given how impatient I am. What a wonderful lesson! We started off at Campbell st market, then wandered around George Town to the mosque, Guan Hin temple, various food stalls around the area and watched people live out their daily lives in the morning. It was Penang from a whole other angle (given that my family is from Penang) that I really appreciated. I even had fish guts on me at one point when I was taking pictures of a fishmonger uncle-- all in the name of art! I would encourage you to reach out to Dave to arrange a photo walk if you are a food AND photo enthusiast of any level. Be sure to bring lots of water and a hat -- it's Penang; you will sweat.
