[Photography] Concert photo… Simply Red Farewell Tour

Taking concert photo is always a challenge. The stage environment and stage lighting have wide dynamic range from pitch black to extreme bright coming from thousand of watts spot light. Different with say capturing a sunset scene, stage environment also change quickly and dramatically, thus  you need to react quickly to capture the moment.

Also about logistic, for an amateur photographer as my self I do not have a stage pass, or a pers pass, where you can go close to a stage to capture the scene so I just have to maximize where I’m at at the concert. No way I’m bringing the big and heavy tele or zoom lens to a concert, enjoying the music is still the main reason for me to go to a music concert. But if I manage to get decent picture with the equipment that I carry from the location where I at, I’m happy 🙂

EXIF data for the above picture, Exposure 1/125 sec at f/1.4. ISO 100. Canon EOS 7d. Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens.

More picture after the jump..


[Photography] Slow shutter speed at Cisarua

Grab the above pic at Cisarua, shooting water flow with slow shutter speed always bring dramatic effect. I was riding my folding bike so I did not bring my tripod. I used my camel bag as sandbag to put my camera on top. Not too bad, considering 🙂

From EXIF data, exsposure 0.6 sec at f/36. ISO 100, EF-S15-85mm, Canon EOS-7D.


[Photography] The lush of green..

One more reason I enjoy cross country (XC) cycling, I can bring my camera with me! Check out a scenery while XC with friends at Telaga Warna Puncak. Canon EOS7D, lens EF-S 10-22mm.

Fresh air, beautiful scenery. What more can you ask? Canon EOS7D, lens EF-S 10-22mm.

I’m enjoying this more and more… Next the Stumpjumper FSR Pro Carbon frame and Sram XX!!! Woohooo!!


[Photography] The morning bird..

Anyone recognized the bird in the picture?

Every morning the bird play around in my front yard, I’ve been trying to take picture of it for several weeks already and the above was I think the best one. The bird is relatively small, much smaller than a pigeon, or even “burung gereja” (don’t know what is its English name). The bird’s beak is like a humming-bird, perhaps its a type of humming-bird?

Anyhow, from the EXIF: ISO160, 1/320 at f/2.8, subject distance 3.2m, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L  IS Mark II USM.


[Photography] Junior Superbike Race and Panning Shoot (END)

For the last posting about the race week end and the lens test, I thought I share some of the pictures that I like as well as the picture info. The above was the picture of Pak Yunus from Vendetta Moto. I shoot this as he exited the S Kecil chicane. I like the above picture since the bike was pretty sharp, the VENDETTA MOTO word was quite clear. His style on the bike was nice and you can see the curb behind the bike as well as diagonally in the background. From EXIF data, Exposure was 1/60 sec at f/8.0. ISO 100.
