Adventure with an ultra wide angle lens
Wide angle shooting was a new thing for me, and getting the wide view was very hard! I snapped hundreds of hundreds picture and I do learnt a lot of things. First, the wide angle perspective, and second mood.
Ultra wide angle are fantastic, as they add depth of field. This picture below will bring your eyes from bottom to the top of the forest, as if this forest is enchanted.
This luxury house picture was taken as an assignment from my uncle. He is a great general contractor and had impressive portfolio consisted of high rise building, apartments, and his specialisation is luxury homes. His works under the name of PT Hidup Konstruksi.
Soekarno Hatta International Airport Terminal 3
Terminal 3 is the latest terminal in Soekarno Hatta International airport. Started to operate in 2009, Terminal 3 (T3) was at 1/5th of its planned area and capacity. When fully operational, T3 will be able to serve about 20 million passenger a year which will be interconnected to Terminal 2 and Jakarta using a train or possibly monorail.
The building has modern looks, big and very impressive.
I'm using Windows Live Photo Gallery to straighten this image, which is otherwise rotated. The Photo Gallery did manage to straighten this image perfectly with one single click.
Moreover those image has been contrast enhanced in Corel PhotoPaint to make it more appealing, therefore showing my favourite colours: gold and blue.
A view to the parking lot across the Mall of Indonesia. The parking lot is of course a no match for the grandness of Terminal 3, and since you've just saw Terminal 3, I believe you might not be interested in this picture. However, I put this picture here just to show audiences that wide angle can make an interesting point of something that just ordinary.
The adventure continues in Europe
I bought only 2 lenses with me in Europe, the Canon EF-S 10-22 mm ultra wide lens and Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 normal lens. 99 percent of the picture on the Eurotrip 2009 - 2010 was taken using my Canon EF-S 10-22 mm, therefore unless stated, the pictures were made using the ultrawide. Remember, one lens is enough, two lenses is good, three or more lenses are hassle.
The ultra wide angle lens bought a whole new level of fun in photography!
