Alright…a few moment ago I went to a trip to one of a tourist site in Yogyakarta (not a real trip actually, I when there riding my bicycle), Museum Monumen Jogya Kembali. It’s a museum with an unique and interesting architecture design for me.
I can reach there at least 15 minute with my bicycle. Which is really near from my place.
This one building have a lot of perspective that I can photograph. But to bad it was raining. So I can’t take enough photo. I think I gonna go there next time. It’s a good think its near.
So back then, the first thing I look at is a perspective and composition that I like. So I just go around before I bring out my camera. Its not really a big place. I only looking for exterior part, that’s why I didn’t get in the building and also the museum almost close when I arrived.
Right after that and found the way I wanted to photograph, I brought out my camera, a Sony A58 with Sony DT 18-55 f/3.5-6.3 SAM II. The problem was the rain has become a storm I think. I don’t have anything to cover my camera, but a little umbrella, which not enough to cover me and my camera. I know where my priority came to (I got a flu after that).
Moving on, I attach my camera on my tripod, Sirui T-2204 X. This building have a unique design (like a reverse cone with a pond below). I attach my H&Y 10-Stop Neutral Density filter to my lens. I don’t use a CPL lens because there wasn’t any glare from the sun (since it’s really cloudy) and really dark, even thought It was evening.
What I shot first is the whole landscape of the building. After that I look for more specific and intimate composition. I don’t actually took a lot of picture, since it was heavily rain and my camera not actually waterproof.
So this my result in its raw files…
Well…before I when there, I was planning to took the monument photo for cityscape photography, but for some reason I can’t find a way to took it. So in exchange, I tried to create a architecture photography…then again why not make it into architecture fine art photography.
So check out my finish photos…
It was really interesting place and I recommend for people who interest in architecture photography. But to tell you the truth, I still haven’t satisfy (Rain, remember). Anyway I think I gonna go there again to look for more photo that I can take.
If you want to check comparison…
Check out more of my photography trip that I’ll do later on…
