Street Photo of the week by Tavepong Pratoomwong
Tavepong Pratoomwong is a Street Photographer from Chanthaburi in Thailand. He has an amazing vision and all his photos have a story to tell combined with a great sense of humor. He shoots in colour and uses that colour to his advantage in a very clever way. Tavepong is a dedicated member of the Streethunters.net Flickr Group and we are pretty psyched about that. When scanning through his images it’s easy to see his tremendous talent. Each and every one of his photographs is so insane, and so bloody awesome you can’t help but gawk. Tavepong is one of those Street Photographers that everyone wishes they could be. He is exceptionally gifted and a true seeker of perfection. His photos are so good that each time you look at them it feels like you have discovered something new in your life.

This is one of Tavepong’s latest photos. Actually at the time of this writing it is the latest photo. I am a huge fan of Tavepong and because of that I couldn’t choose which photo to feature today, so I decided to just feature the latest one and not think about it too much. I like every single one of his photos, so this is an easy enough photo for me to write about.
White Walker – wow! If you have been into photography for at least 24 hours you will undoubtedly notice that his photo has so many amazing elements that make it stand out as unique and bizarre. As a photo worthy to remember. Time to analyze it -what do I see when I look at this shot?
I will start with the obvious which is the bright glowing diagonal line from top left to bottom right that splits the image in two. This glowing line is intersected by another glowing line that is slightly different. This crossing of glowing lines splits the image into four sections. Those four sections are of different size and shape and intensity. The section that covers the most space is the top right one which is weirdly partially dark and reflective. The most important section is the bottom left one that includes the interesting parts of the photo. The other two sections are used as balance. They exist to make the photo look good, adding some interest but not becoming focal points themselves. Let’s move to the interesting bottom left section now. Here things go Sci-Fi. Movies like Blade Runner, Star Wars and Total Recall come to mind. I can see an oriental lady with dyed blond hair, a pierced nose and white shirt looking at me with glowing eyes. Those glowing eyes have been created by Tavepong’s amazing creative composition. This is a photograph that I could use as a Futurology book cover. A photo that I could use as a Sci-Fi film poster. It is something out of this world, a photo that was shot in 100 years from now. Is this a woman from the future? Is she a human or an android? Maybe a terminator?
“I’ll be back”
Thanks Tavepong Pratoomwong!
