    Really, this kind of question only you yourself can answer. I say photo opportunities is everywhere your feet brings you to.

    if you like temples, there are plenty of wats for you to visit, eg. grand palace, wat pho, wat arun, etc.

    else you can check out other places like the floating market, chinatown, etc.

    check out this website which i have found useful. http://www.into-asia.com/

    this is link is must read http://www.into-asia.com/bangkok/gemscam/ for first timers. but don't get too paranoid coz personally i feel bangkok is a safe and friendly place for travellers.

    There are lots of photo opportunities in Bangkok. My recommendations:

    1. The street life and cityscapes.
    2. The Grand Palace is a must-see (half day)
    3. The temple tours i.e. Marble temple, Recliining Buddha temple etc (half day)
    4. The river tour on long tail boat that brings you to closer to the floating villages and river life. (half day)
    5. Night life and night markets (requires flash and wide angle lens. Tripod not suitable in crowded markets)

    Maybe if you have more time you can visit Ayutthaya which is about two and half hours from Bangkok by coach. You can see the old ruins of the old capital of Thailand.

    If you do have more time you should do a walking photo shoot throught the streets and alleys of Bangkok. However your enemy is the stifling heat and humidity of Bangkok!
