Children of Angkor

While at Angkor Wat, my posts focussed mostly on temples and not much on people in and around them. I mentioned I would post some people shots later on and since I have been doing some sorting of my pictures today it was kind of the right time.

Most of these pictures have been taken with the Canon f1.8 50mm lens and are out of camera JPGs.


  1. Lovely family, good pictures and awesome photography. :)

  2. Thanks for your comment, glad you like the pictures!

  3. These are really nice. You've captured their innocence in nice 'slightly muted' colours. These colours seem so natural in this part of the world.

    I love my 50mm f1.8 (Nikon). I don't use it enough to be honest, but these lenses feel so pure. Also ,as with the GRDs, having a prime lens forces us to work harder and think more about composition. They also give great continuity between shots.

    Good work.

  4. Thank for your comment Bill!

    I d like the low conrast and muted colours I get fom the Canon lens as it enhances the picture at times.

    I like using prime lenses since they force you to be more creative as you say. This is why most of my cameras have prime lenses with the only exception being the Panasonic LC1.

  5. A wonderful series, Cristi. Judging from these photographs and the others you posted earlier, it appears you had a fantastic trip.

  6. Thanks for your comment Calvin!

    I did enjoy the trip a lot and wish it would have been longer.

  7. Beautiful Photos and awesome photography..........Really I Love This Post.....Very Nice post ..Thanks For Sharing..
