Of Naked Lunches, BKK Shopping Malls, and the Fuji X.

I am still enjoying the Fuji XE2 mirrorless camera immensely, and am considering some primes for it. The lenses I fancy are the 23mm, the 35mm, and the 56mm - a cracking portrait lens. I have had a great run so far with the 18-55mm kit lens, which is justifiably lauded by many.

I am planning to use the Fuji over Xmas and New Year on my 'Shopping Mall' project in Thailand. Ideally I hope that I can eventually exhibit the images at Siam Paragon store, or related, or the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre.

Shooting In Bangkok.

I am in Bangkok until the end of the month, and have a couple of commercial photography jobs on. I am staying in the excellent suburb of Thong Lo, and am fortunate to be surrounded by park land. Stepping out into the streets, there is an abundance of top notch street food places.

In addition to doing doing the photography jobs - had to bring quite a lot of lighting with me from Melbourne - I will be taking street photos with my Fuji XE2, and 18-55mm zoom. My initial thoughts are to explore the vivid and saturated colours of Thailand, and the food. Not very complex thematically, I know, but visually interesting nonetheless. I am sure my recent interest in strange patterns, grids, and reflections will make an appearance in the photos, too, along the way.
