I have come up with a new technique, for me at least, that is giving me really great, hyped colour and texture in my photos. It suits Bangkok perfectly, and is the kind of look I was seeking, without knowing it. It is inspiring me to hit the streets and do a tonne of pics. Am I going to divulge how I am achieving this look...? No, I usually give away my secrets far too freely, so for the moment I am hanging on to this one.
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.
