inner being.

Four months ago I took a set of pictures that I have been editing occasionally until now.

The whole idea came from Coco Rocha's French magazine cover crossed with my random bump of Bella's torso x-ray picture that she uploaded on facebook. For some reason I ended up deciding to 'practice' with these pictures and didn't stop experimenting from the lighting aspect, but also the polishing aspect of it. I had a LOT of fun working with these pictures because I have more liberty to make them even more fine-arts-looking.

This is my last batch of pictures that I did during the summer in Jakarta. Hopefully I'll be inspired during the Christmas break and update a bit more frequently. After all, there's a lot of beautiful things I would love to share here from New York!

Special thanks to Brea, Melia, and Michella for being such a great prep team that day.

it is up to you.

Brea. Subway. Times Square. At night.

It was an adventure, sort-of-based on a fortune cookie found inside her coat's pocket. We took the advice and ended up having a very interesting night.

And this is just a beginning of our four years in the big apple.
So let the adventure begins!

good morning sandy.

This was taken on October 30th, 2012, 6-something AM. Sandy was already downgraded to a post-tropical storm by then. The power outage stayed for days, and even until now.

Sandy, you swept the sun away from me. But it was exciting. Thank you.

an open chase.

...a.k.a. the after-Flora shoot! I apologize for the two months delay plus the absence of updates. I'm currently adapting with new surroundings, new workloads, and doing just okay to be able to edit bit by bit almost every weekend.

This narrative editorial are flourished with neutral colors in terms of the glamorous wardrobe. The initial concept that Amy gave me was the life of a strong female spy, but due to a male model in addition to our team that day I twisted the story into a mutual chase between two spies.

soul searching.

I am really sorry to inform that the second concept that I took pictures of on the same day as Flora will be delayed for another week. I will be working on it next weekend. I've been having the worst editing-block due to my creativity crisis, and I am building up my determination in digital imaging from level one. But please look forward to it because you'll be presented with new things, I promise!

Before New Zealand, I made a plan with Bella to at least have one more shoot at her house; a simple one, less fashion and more art, so I spared a day before flying to New York to do so. I demanded something with more feelings, and she wanted something unique.

Although the initial concept got changed at last minute, the results are still something to be delighted about. We tried something new, it was challenging, but it gave me the idea of a great collaboration. I am definitely sure that in the future, Bella and I will create something even better.

This will be dedicated to all of you who's searching for your soul. May you never get lost in life and find your way to understanding.

See you in NYC!
