End and Start of A Year

I would end this year with the same image that I post at the second day of this year

IMG_0001

I do remember when I took this photo, I had a big hope that this blog will grow and filled with all my weekly snapshot. I even took a promise to deliver a weekly post for this blog.

And the hope stayed as a hope. My days were filled with daily jobs and family matters, I can hardly find free time to create either a photo session or simple street shoots.

So … for the next year … I put the same hope once more ^^

— these part below were wrote after the midnight —

Happy New Year 2015!!!!!! Hope you all find your best this year!!!

The One Night Battle

One NIght Battle

For Laron (flying white-ants), this one night battle is a life and death battle. Their options is simple: ended up as delicious meal for human or gecko, or found their couple, mating and creating a new colony somewhere in the house (of course, if they managed to escape from their predator, human and gecko) …

Interesting huh …

How I wonder what you are

Remember that I used to sing that song

Every time you afraid of sleeping alone

I still sing that song until now

Even though you can’t listen my voice

I always be here for you

I love you …

I never have a manual lenses, I only stand 2 days with my father old camera, and I always thought that using manual lenses is slow, not-reliable, and just-not-for-me …

Until yesterday, my brother-in-law lend me his Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 1:2/35 and SMC TAKUMAR 1:1.4/50 lens.

Trying Cinematic Look Post Processing

small_IMG_8060

Today I saw an article on Fstoppers about how to create a Cinematic look on your images. To be simple, an image will be called cinematic-ish if we look the image as if it was taken from a snapshot of a movie (like when you were watching Captain America and .. hey, I like this scene with Scarlett Johansson … then you pause the movie and press the Print Screen button … well that kind of cinematic-ish haha). Common post processing would involve tools like split toning, contrast, grain, and 16:9 crop on the image.
