Of Palms And Boats

Of Palms And Boats

Sticking with my boat fetish. This was taken further along on Jomtien Beach where other fishing boats pull their boats in. I just thought this one looked better in black and white since it brings out more of the hidden features of the boat and to be honest, there wasn’t much colour in the photo anyways. I will give double extra bonus points if anyone can find where I removed a pigeon from the photo with extreme prejudice. As I…

The Lonely Tree

The Lonely Tree

I saw this riding past on my motorbike and I knew I had to get this shot. It’s just a weird dead tree on the beach. The final piece is the soi dog laying down in front of it. I used my Olympus TG-4 to take the image as it was raining out. What I didn’t realize is that I didn’t have it set to RAW. It’s the most intuitive camera for changing the setting for RAW. I was able…

Pattaya In Black And White

Pattaya In Black And White

I decided to do all these images of Pattaya in black and white. They just seemed to fit better this way. Some are in HDR, some aren’t, some have been played with extensively some haven’t. I just had some fun shooting them and editing them. I took my Sony RX100 out with me so I could get a bit more reach and still have a light camera without changing lenses so it worked well. Enjoy.

The Approaching Storm

The Approaching Storm

This was actually what I saw before I did the Civil Disobedience photo. What really drew me was the shadows and the light and then way the clouds framed it all. Luckily I had my trusty Sony RX100iii with me and snapped the photo. No idea how old that thing is but it’s a hell of a camera and a workhorse. Did I mention light too? Oh, this is all straight out of the camera. No HDR and minimal editing….

Paris or Vegas

Paris or Vegas

It’s fairly obvious that this is not Paris since the Effiel tower isn’t surrounded by buildings or the top of a Bally’s sign. Still, it’s an interesting enough photo to make it worthwhile. I did the black and white conversion in Lightroom then used Aurora 2019 to make it HDR. The sky was a flat grey, to begin with, and making it black and white helped and when you punch it with HDR you got some swirls into it so…

Pachyderm

Pachyderm

I took this at a little place I refer to as Hell on Earth or Nong Nooch Gardens. I still hate the place and vow never to return. Still, I got an elephant photo and if you are wondering what a pachyderm is feel free to read on Wikipedia. Clearly, Wikipedia knows way more about the word than I do. For inquiring minds, I must tell you that elephants in large numbers rather smell. Mix that in with high heat…

Not For Hire

Not For Hire

I just realized I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not that I haven’t been shooting, just for private clients so the editing time goes to them sadly. I am trying to get a comprehensive set from Cambodia and started the curation and early edits of the street photos. I am also actively planning my next trip to Cambodia which will include a few other spots in the country. It just seems, that every time I sit in front of the…

Barnacle Covered

Barnacle Covered

I have no idea what these things are. I know they are used for boats but beyond that can’t begin to guess. I just liked the way they looked all barnacle covered and just left to rust away in the Thai climate. When I took this photo I knew it was going to be in black and white. It’s all about the texture and tones and it creates a mood around the image. So I did my usual workflow then…
