Di sela-sela agenda Fotografer.net Series 2012 Bangkok meliput Songkran Water Festival, 13-16 April 2012, saya dan kawan-kawan menyempatkan diri street photography di kota. Tempat yang paling gampang dijangkau dan aman adalah pusat perbelanjaan kondang Mahboonkrong.

Berikut adalah foto-foto panorama di seputar Mahboonkrong menggunakan Samsung Galaxy Note pada shooting mode panorama. Tidak ada penyuntingan foto.

Menonton balon udara menyenangkan, menerbangkannya lebih menantang. Ketika Filipina menggelar Festival Internasional ke-17 Balon Udara Filipina pada 9-12 Februari 2012, ribuan orang tiap hari menyemut mengunjungi lokasi festival di Pangkalan Udara Clark.

Pada hari pertama, festival tak terlampau ramai. Tapi pada hari kedua, sekitar 2 ribu pengunjung sudah di lokasi sejak subuh. Balon-balon sudah siap sejak jam 5.30 pagi dan mengudara mulai sekitar pukul 6 waktu setempat. Tahun ini tercatat 28 balon dari berbagai belahan dunia hadir di Clark.

Weekend with Everything That Flies“, akhir pekan dengan segala sesuatu yang terbang, demikian tema festival tahun ini. Jadi, selain balon udara ada pula atraksi sky diving, paramotor, paralayang, ultra-glide dan akrobat udara. Bahkan layang-layang pun ikut dipertunjukkan, dalam berbagai warna dan bentuk atraktif.

Hari ketiga sudah memasuki akhir pekan. Diperkirakan lebih dari 20 ribu pengunjung memadati lokasi. Bahkan ada yang menginap di rerumputan Pangkalan Udara Clark, dengan membawa tenda-tenda kecil. Luar biasa ramai dan meriah.

Pada pukul 5.30 pagi di hari Sabtu itu, jalan menuju Clark sudah padat merayap dalam radius 2 km. Padahal jalan lurus dan lebar menuju Clark masing-masing 2 jalur di tiap arah. Parkir sudah disiapkan untuk 5 ribu kendaraan roda empat, dengan arus sirkulasi yang rapi.

Pangkalan Udara Clark sudah menjadi lautan manusia, meski hari masih gelap dan matahari baru saja tersembul di ufuk. Pria wanita, tua muda, dan anak-anak maupun remaja berdesak-desakan. Tiket masuk dipatok pada harga PHP 200 sehari, atau sekitar Rp 40 ribu pada kurs PHP 1 = Rp 200.

Suara helikopter memecah pagi, ketika ribuan kepala menengadah ke langit muncullah sekelompok sky diver mengibarkan bendera Filipina di udara. Lantas di pengeras suara terdengar pembawa acara mengumumkan, “Bapak-bapak dan Ibu-ibu, lagu kebangsaan Filipina…”. Lalu berkumandanglah Lupang Hinirang, lagu kebangsaan negara 7 ribu pulau ini, mengiringi kibaran bendera Filipina di udara.

Pemantik-pemantik api dinyalakan, balon-balon mulai menggelembung. Tak berapa lama kemudian satu per satu balon mengudara membawa keranjang-keranjang yang berisi pilot dan penumpangnya.

Tak hanya berbentuk bundar dalam balutan warna-warni penarik perhatian, ada juga balon berbentuk kue ulang tahun, karakter game Sonic, ice cream cup dan karakter mirip kungfu panda.

Hari keempat, hari terakhir festival dimulai dengan pengunjung yang sudah memarkir kendaraan roda empat hingga pinggir kota Angeles. Padahal jarak dari Pangkalan Udara Clark ke Angeles lebih dari 5km.

Subuh hari keempat, jalan tol sudah padat merayap. Ketika jarum jam menyentuh angka 8, jalan tol dan jalan biasa sudah macet total tak bergerak. Antisipasi penyelenggara untuk 50 ribu penonton sepertinya masih kurang.

Semua tersihir balon udara.

Suasana senja dan matahari terbenam selalu jadi subyek foto wajib. Tempat seindah Sumba Barat di Provinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur menyimpan banyak lokasi sunset yang menarik. Sempat banyak foto dibuat dengan kamera di ponsel BlackBerry 9900, juga ada 1 video.

Memotret dengan kamera ponsel menyenangkan, tak perlu dipusingkan aspek-aspek teknik. Memang secara kualitas tak akan menyamai kamera DSLR profesional yang saya bawa, tapi kamera sesimpel ponsel seringkali ampuh dan handal. Foto-foto dibuat di Pantai Marosi dan tempat menginap di Sumba Nautil Resort, Lamboya.

You don’t take pictures, you make ones. 

It’s probably only lights in ceiling of a shopping mall. In an afternoon on a trip to Makassar, South Sulawesi last week we paid a visit to Trans Studio, Sunday (24/10). This is the biggest shopping arcade in East Indonesia.

Some of my fellows and I were chilling out after a fun photo shoot with Fotografer.net members in Makassar. Playing around with our BlackBerry camera, Harlim came to me and showed some fun photos. He twisted the BlackBerry to get a slow-speed effect on lights in the ceiling of Trans Studio.

Yes, we could not adjust shutter-speed in BlackBerry camera manually. You don’t need it actually, as long as we recognize that the light is dim enough for BlackBerry to automatically set itself shooting in slow shutter-speed. Then, here we go playing around with moving effect.

Then shortly, we got ourself busy twisting BlackBerry. We had some types, there were Onyx 9700, Javelin 8900, Pearl 3G 9105 and Gemini 8520. And we succeeded to twist them, had fun with some twisting photos.

All pictures here were taken by me with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx. It’s simple, just twist the BlackBerry and press the shutter-release button while keep twisting it. It’s easy, you may easily make ones yourself. All pictures shown here are original, no digital editing.

Traveling with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Camera

Taal. When traveling you must have pictures that would make you memorize the place. In a visit to Taal, Batangas Province, Philippines, I found this sign inside a Spanish colonial style building. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx

You must live in the other planet or live in another century back if you haven’t traveled anywhere in your life. Traveling becomes an integrated part of life and for some people becomes their habit and desire. One important thing is to have a camera to be your best traveling buddy.

One compact camera is enough to accompany you during the trip. It was years ago when traveler had to bring, at least, two gadgets: mobile phone and pocket camera. Image sensor, resolution and quality in camera in mobile phone was not good. Today, there are plenty of options of mobile phone which has good quality of image sensor, lens and big resolution.

I know a mobile phone today reaches 12 megapixel resolution. Another mobile phone put on the legendary Carl-Zeiss lens. You may want anything, but it’s better to have what you really need. I choose BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx which has 3.2 megapixel camera.

It goes whereever I go. I seldom bring my pocket camera. My big professional DSLR is with me in serious targets. Anyway, simplicity in mobile phone camera would let us concentrate more on the subject and idea rather than technical things, i.e shutter speed and aperture settings.

Sample of pictures here didn’t go through any single digital editing. I only resized them down so you may witness the strengths and weaknesses of mobile phone camera. Let the pictures talk.

Afternoon in Kalasey. Overlooking Manado Tua volcano in the distance, I found this place calming. It was a bit cloudy but some parts of blue sky occured. Shooting only the volcano would not distinguish it with another shot from another angle. An addition of foreground would make it distinctive. If you visit Manado, North Sulawesi you must give yourself a photo of Manado Tua. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx

Filipino Traditional Dance. I positioned myself as an ordinary tourist. If I put myself as serious photographer, I would remove the background and find more artistic setting. But this kind of situation is a scene that any traveler might face. There was low light condition and the subject was moving. I read the movement and tried to find the pattern, as any kind of dance would have, and caught the moment of when some dancers sat still while the others moving. Pre-focus, hold the camera button half-way then only pressed fully down at the desired moment. This is a regular dance performance in Intramuros, Manila, Philippines.

New Year's Fireworks. Shooting fireworks is a challenge, even if you're armed with DSLR. It's even much more challenging to shoot fireworks with mobile phone camera. It couldn't measure exposure value as in DSLR, and we couldn't set aperture and speed manually. The effective way to shoot is to determine the exact location of fireworks, pre-focus by pressing the camera button half-way down and pushing it all-the-way down at the desired moment. It's hard, but I made about 2 out of 10 successful pictures in New Year 2010 Eve in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx

Jeepney. When traveling, you must give yourself photo of an icon of the place you visit. Manila, of course, is famous with its Jeepney, the common public transport. When shooting in front of Malate Church, I found a lot of Jeepney passing by. It's only a couple hundred meters away from Roxas Boulevard, Manila Bay, Manila, Philippines. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx

St Nino Festival. A trip that match an event would give some more memories, things to learn, experiences, and subject for photography. St Nino Festival is held annualy in Manila, Philippines. I found this eye-catching costume of guards among the crowd of thousands of people in the streets of Pasay City, Manila, Philippines. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx

Nasi Kuning. Another important thing in traveling photography is making photos of local food. Yellow rice in Yogyakarta, Indonesia is made of turmeric and accompanied with grilled chicken, sliced fried tempe, and some condiments. Light situation was available light, a side light from nearby window. Photo by: Kristupa Saragih with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx
