(QNO) - In some recent years the photographers - members of Quang Nam Art and Literature Association such as Duong Phu Tam, Thai Tuan Kiêt, Huynh Ha, Mai Thanh Chương, Dang Ke Cuong have had a few times of visiting beautiful places of Vietnam in the trips called “PhotoTour” together with international tourists.
“They come to our country to enjoy holydays and “hunt” pictures about the beauty of Vietnam. Most of them are professional photographers. They want to go to the beautiful landscapes where they can take art photos. They invited us to join the trips as official members of the group,” said photographic artist Duong Phu Tam, a member of the FIAP (International Federation of Photographic Art) since 2011 who has awarded the honourable title “FIAP Artist”.

Taking many photos and choosing the best one only is better than spending too much time choosing the best position, light and photo frame before taking some pictures without any values” - Mr Duong Phu Tam said.
