I just got back from a 5-day intensive photo-trip (a.k.a. “photo-hunting”) with Dad and his friends in Solo City, Indonesia. Having snapped over 2000 shots in this trip (which took more than 3 hours to import into Lightroom), there is plenty for me to look through and process. The above shot of a wayang kulit master artist at work is one of my favourites taken soon after we arrived in Solo. Taking the shot wasn’t easy since there were at least 6-7 of us crowding around the table. I decided to use an ultra-wide angle approach to compose the shot, making use of the exaggeration in perspective for dramatic effect.
