Keep calm -- it's Ramadhan
Photography, Updates

Ramadhan starts in Indonesia

Today marks the beginning of the month of Ramadhan, holy to Muslims around the world, including about 200 million Indonesians. For a month, followers of Islam fast from dawn until sunset.

As the bright lights of this Jakarta mall reminded, if you’re feeling hungry (and/or cranky, they usually go together), just keep calm and carry on.

Today’s office: Jakarta, Indonesia

Today I’m shooting corporate headshots in a studio in South Jakarta.

I’ll be using two different setups: one to get a pure white background (large softbox, reflector panel, background lights and hair/rim light) and another one to get soft light and a dark graded background (large softbox and reflector panel).

Today’s office: Jakarta, Indonesia

Today I’m setting up camp at the 88 building, in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Amazing views — but even from the the thirty-something floor, it’s impossible to see the edges of this 28-million-people city.

Outside, a crew of window cleaners were busy scrubbing the windows.

They’re definitely used to the views but I’d like to imagine that, from time to time, they gaze into the horizon as well, marveling at this huge, chaotic, ungraspable city.
