Alright…a few moments ago I went on a trip to one of the tourist sites in Yogyakarta (not a real trip actually, I when there riding my bicycle), Museum Monumen Jogya Kembali. It’s a museum with a unique and interesting architectural design for me.
I can reach there for at least 15 minutes on my bicycle. Which is really near to my place.
This one building has a lot of perspectives that I can photograph. But too bad, it was raining. So I can’t take enough photos. I think I gonna go there next time. It’s a good thing it’s 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. It’s not really a big place. I only looking for the exterior part, that’s why I didn’t get into 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 is not enough to cover me and my camera. I know where my priority came to (I got the flu after that).
Moving on, I attach my camera to my tripod, Sirui T-2204 X. This building has 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 though It was evening.
What I shot first is the whole landscape of the building. After that, I look for a more specific and intimate composition. I don’t actually take a lot of pictures, since it was heavily raining and my camera was not actually waterproof.
So these are the raw photos…
Well…before I when there, I was planning to take the monument photo for cityscape photography, but for some reason, I can’t find a way to take it. So in exchange, I tried to create architecture photography…then again why not make it into architecture fine art photography.
So check out my finished photos…
It was a really interesting place and I recommend it to people who interest in architecture photography. But to tell you the truth, I still haven’t been satisfied (Rain, remember). Anyway, I think I gonna go there again to look for more photos that I can take.
