This summer I bought a Nikon D40 in an attempt to improve my photography skills.
Now, I know that people say the talent is not in the camera, but I’ve just been through all the pictures I’ve taken in the last three years, and something about the Nikon has drastically improved my photography. Maybe it’s just the fact that when I hold that camera I feel like I know what I’m doing, and since I can pretend that I look like I know what I’m doing, I seem to have more confidence, which leads to better pictures…
Anyway, one thing I’ve learned is to capture small details that represent the larger whole – instead of having one picture to capture everything that’s happening in one scene, focus on the details. And with that in mind, I give you some small details from the fabulous Jatajuk market here in Bangkok:
For those of you that don’t know Jatajuk, it must be the biggest weekend market in the world with over 15,000 stalls and 300,000 visitors on an average weekend day. They have absolutely everything and anything you could imagine – from strange wild animals, to silks, to plants, to clothes, to toilet bowls. It’s amazing. And, clearly it’s going to be a few dozen more trips before I even start to touch some of those other sections – the silks and handicrafts are just too interesting for now!
