Happy New Year 2014

A little boy fishing at Pandawa Beach Bali - Sony A7 and Leica Elmarit 90mm f/2.8

Using just the fishing line rolled on a piece of bamboo on his left hand, this little boy was trying to catch some fish at Pandawa beach, Bali. Throwing and pulling many times. He just kept trying. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 everyone! Keep going! Don’t give up on your dream!

The Sea and Sky

High key photography - The Sea and Sky

This high key photograph was shot one morning in 2010 at Changi Beach. It was a hazy morning and the contrast between the sea and the sky was high. I wanted both the boats and the aeroplane, but the sky was too bright, hence the compromise to lose details on both. The boats were almost in silhouette as I had to take some exposure of the sky too. Just in case you ask, no I did not have my graduated ND filter with me that morning. Original photo was shot in color and converted to black and white in Adobe Lightroom 4.

Chasing Light at Rawa Pening

Sunrise At Rawa Pening

And I knew that I had to be quick and I was taking a risk as my return flight to Jakarta would be at noon on the same day.MORE +
