Adhit is one of my friends for life. It’s been 12 years of friendship and he’s more like a family to me. Recently, I offered him and his partner, Ayya, for a photo session. I am always into urban and street photography. On the other side, I am trying to explore my skill in portraying romanticism. Therefore, I want to combine those different elements into one. Gladly, Adhit and Ayya were very cooperative and we had a very fun photo shoot session in the streets of Jakarta.
It was an experiment to me. I have some experiences in taking couple and maternity shots before, but it’s always the conventional one. Those with romantic poses. They are totally fine. I like that too. Some people also prefer that style. Nothing wrong with it. This time, I want something different.
Lately, I am inspired by Jatidiri Ono (@byjatidiriono) and Govinda Rumi (@govindarumi). The way they capture pictures are unconventional and their deliveries give a dynamic and moody feels at the same time. The more I see their pictures, the more it motivates me to go out and shoot with my camera.
So, that’s it. Thanks to the street of Sabang and also Claypot Popo that serves a very tasty food. I hope Adhit and Ayya had a great time with the photo session and love the pictures as well.
