The way of urban photography
If you ask me where did I started taking photographs? — I would say that the beginning of my photography journey was originated in Boston. I started taking photographs as a mere hobby when I went to further my education in this photogenic city. I started off taking urban photography, just because I liked to capture an intricate urban lifestyle. To me, the ability to portrait a story through a single photograph is a real challenge and fun.
Once I came back to Thailand, I decided to use my expertise in urban photography and apply it when taking photographs in Bangkok. With this skill set, I can present the world Thailand in my own perspective.
When I received this FUJIFILM X-T200 and FUJINON XF8-16mmF2.8 lens, I did not hesitate to find new spots to try out my new gears. This photograph set was based in Bangkok and some form the remote areas. The concept was to represent the sophisticated yet beautiful architecture of Thailand, streetlights and light trails, as well as to display different cultures from various places that may be unheard of.
One of my favorite experience with X-T200 is the vertical tilt-screen feature as I like to take photographs in a portrait orientation. This tilt-screen feature enables me to orient my perspective a lot easier when taking photographs. Another feature that I cannot live without is the viewfinder in such a small camera body.
In this photograph set, I intentionally postprocessed the photographs in such a way that it represents my identity to the point where anyone who come across my photographs will be able to tell that they were taken by me.
