Tattooing is an ancient art & in Thailand it started with Buddhist monks, who believed sacred texts gave them protection. Thai icons such as tigers are now very popular, but are not powerful unless they are surrounded by the proper mantras.
As promised here is the second installment of my iPhone images from Bangkok. I want to thank all of you who commented yesterday and also respond to many of you that were discussing the fact that it is not the camera, but the person operating the camera. I firmly believe that you as the photographer have the ability to create anything that you can visualize in your mind. Those who are taking my upcoming Creative Session Course will learn that the equipment is secondary and becomes only the means by which you put your vision in a form that others can appreciate. On Thursday, I am going to bring you a new how-to section entitled “Working Towards the Decisive Moment” in which I discuss how I achieved the final and strongest images in a series of shots. And then next Tuesday, we will be posting a video that highlights a completely new body of work from me.
I walked through downtown Bangkok, with only my iPhone, and these are some of the images that I was able to capture. I am really excited about the creative possibilities of utilizing this new technology in my image making process. Stay tuned for more images tomorrow.
