I joined Team Farang for day one of their video shoot in Bangkok. The first video shoot with Zen Shimada as an official team member. We drove about an hour in Bangkok across from Impact stadium to an abandoned building. We were able to shoot all day without getting kicked out and even ran into a few other people doing their own photoshoot.
When there is graffiti it is a good indication that the place is accessible to get to. Even if it takes a little climbing. If there is a lot of detail in the graffiti or multiple works of art, it shows that you most likely wont be bothered at this spot.
This shot makes me thing of an invisible bridge. I've seen in an anime.
Lovely light and some interesting remnants from past guests. I am always curious what others leave behind.
Team Work. A lot of planning goes into shooting even if it feels spontaneous. The great part of Team Farang working together is how they understand camera angles, style and their own movement. They can trade places and shoot each other.
We make our best efforts to get up early and shoot in morning light. Taking a break for lunch we can avoid the direct sunlight over head that isn't very flattering. Shooting when the sun starts to go back down can be tricky when you are shooting around high buildings but golden hour always has the most beautiful light before sun down. In Bangkok with the pollution it can be cut short and the sun can disappear behind some haze before it meets the horizon.
