In Jakarta

Yeah, I was in the capital for a week. Originally part of my school program, visiting photographers' studios and stuff. But since it was only for two days, I felt too lazy to immediately go back to Jogja and decided to stay in Jakarta for a while. Thankfully Pakde Sani generously invited me to stay at his place, and informed me that Erik was also in Jakarta for an assignment. My biggest gratitude for both of them.

Didn't really go anywhere and shoot anything interesting during the stay cause I simply didn't intend to do that. Aside from the aforementioned laziness factor, I stayed partly because I wanted to meet up with a good friend who recently just started to work in Jakarta. Didn't have a chance to see her in Jogja before her departure so I was really hoping that I could visit her in Jakarta. Unfortunately she was still very busy getting everything on its place so it was no good. To be honest I'm still a bit upset about it...

Anyway, did a little bit of assisting during Erik's assignment to shoot a company profile for a lingerie brand. And no, there wasn't any scantily clad ladies involved since he was only shooting their factory and outlet stores... ;) I had to say it was a quite interesting experience, I got to know how a real commercial shooting session looks like and all the things going on behind it.

Also went to Jakarta Fair with some people from FN, I'll post about it later on.

For the time being enjoy some human absence, in colors! ...Most of them anyway.

i like these, some amazing light and composition in several of them, very zen like in a subtle way. making interesting, compelling pictures without human presence can be really challenging.
