Market Ghosts ~ Thailand

The Kad Luang Warorot Market in Chiang Mai with ghostly passers-by between the stalls.

I was able to capture ghosts moving between the stalls of the Kad Luang market (also known as Warorot market) in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Apparently, ghosts are more interested in sausages and meat than mango and dried fruits.

This shot was taken during a field trip organized with the Chiang Mai Photographic Group. We just went walking around the market for a few hours taking portraits and daily life shots.


Quick Tips:

You can use long exposure to take shots of moving people in busy places. It helps create a sense of movement and action. You don’t need to exaggerate as much as I did on this shot.

Don’t forget to stabilize your camera with a tripod!

    Doesn’t that just capture the frenetic energy that pervades Bangkok and other Thai cities? Great pic.
