We are also proud of Tang Tawanwad Wanavit‎ for his continued effort and showing improvement in leaps and bounds. He is a hard working photographer and we wish him all the best. Congratulations once again.

Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra – This is a wonderful image, intriguing at first and the viewer is forced to stop and have a second look. Good use of flash here, it captures the gaze very well. One can feel the tension created within the frame. Could be easily passed off as a wildlife shot, however it shows the street photographers approach in creating this inspiring scene.

APF Bangkok Masterclass, 11th-13th May 2018

in APF workshop/Best of street photography/Street Photography by

APF is organising a 3 day intensive masterclass which is tailor made to cater to the needs of anyone who wishes to train their eyes to find order in chaos on the streets of Bangkok. Street photography is very rewarding but at the same time, one of the hardest genres to master. Our workshop would help ease the anxiety next time you hit the streets, would help solve the puzzle of composing compelling images in split seconds and most importantly it would help you to see.

During this masterclass, mentors will take the students out on the streets and pass on their tips and knowledge on capturing compelling images on the street. This masterclass includes classroom and shooting sessions. Detail lectures, critiques and selection process will be part of everyday session. We will also look into various composition aspects and the common mistakes while composing, understanding layering in photography, developing ones own style, understanding peripheral vision, ways to see and treat light, will present a video documentary of how their images are made as they shoot and how they fine tune their vision.

Vineet, Rohit and would also guide you through their signature – Gestalt Vision, widely applied in their images, which basically involves an attempt to organize visual elements into groups or unified whole by applying principles of composition.
