My Photography: Prambanan Temple

Hey, another for my photography hunting and a lot of interesting story to tell. One of them is the trip that I did last week. Its difficult and fun, well that is photography after all. This time I want to share my experience at Prambanan Temple.

Now if you visit Yogyakarta, Indonesia, there always at least 3 place that you should visit. First is Malioboro Street, famous for it street and tourist attraction. Second is Borobudur Temple, not exactly in Yogyakarta, but still well known visited place. And third, Prambanan Temple.

Candi Prambanan or Candi Rara Jonggrang is a 9th-century Hindu temple compound in Central Java, Indonesia, dedicated to the Trimurti, the expression of God as the Creator (Brahma), the Preserver (Vishnu) and the Destroyer (Shiva). The temple compound is located approximately 17 kilometres (11 mi) northeast of the city of Yogyakarta on the boundary between Central Java and Yogyakarta provinces.

Now for my gear just the usual my Sony A58 with Sony DT 18-55 f/3.5-6.3 SAM II, Sony A6000 with Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS, H&Y ND1000 Square Filter, CPL filter, and Sirui T-2204 X tripod.

Unlike other I have did so far. This one is the hardest. Only for one reason….its crowed.

Because it is a tourist spot and it was Sunday. My bad for choose a bad day. Lesson learn…chose a weekday when you going to tourist site.

Anyway, I took my camera and choose a few spot. First place I look for was a spot where there weren’t a lot of people, which was hard. And this one is the easiest. At first at least.

And then I want to take a architecture fine art of it. So there is a few thing to look at. The perspective, composition, and position. I kinda hot to, that’s why I finish quickly. Another thing to remember…always bring a hat.

In the end this is the one I taken:

It took me a while to edited those photos. Its totally different than the one usually I took. First this is not architecture of concrete and painted in one color, but stones with different tone and color for every stone. Its really difficult to edited it when the shadow and highlight are mixed in each stone and into my usual style.

This is another reminder if you’re doing architecture fine art, to know what kind of building you photograph. Check out my photography at Jakarta few weeks ago

But I still manage and here is the result after post-processing…
