Menyeberangi Teluk Ambon antara Poka dan Galala, Ambon, Maluku bisa jadi biasa dan singkat. Feri ada di mana-mana, bahkan di Provinsi Maluku yang terdiri atas ribuan pulau. Tapi 15 menit di atas feri KMP Teluk Ambon bisa jadi amat menarik dengan ponsel berkamera di tangan.

Tiba di Bandar Udara Pattimura, Ambon pada hari Minggu (13/5), mobil berbelok kanan masuk pelabuhan Poka. Masuk perut KMP Teluk Ambon, kapal feri yang masih baru ini langsung angkat sauh.

Feri jenis ro-ro buatan tahun 2010 ini berbobot mati 300 ton, mampu mengangkut 6 truk, 9 mobil kecil dan 80 penumpang pada saat bersamaan. Berkecepatan maksimal 9 knot, KMP Teluk Ambon dijalankan oleh 16 ABK.

Tiket mobil kecil Rp 20 ribu saja sekali menyeberang, penumpang gratis. Dengan tiket seharga itu, perjalanan melintasi Teluk Ambon bisa dihemat 20-30 menit daripada lewat darat. Lama akses dari kota Ambon ke kampus Universitas Pattimura dan Bandar Udara Pattimura pun jadi lebih singkat.

Last month, I flew Garuda Indonesia airline from Singapore to Jakarta. The time in Departure Terminal of Terminal 3 Changi International Airport (SIN) Singapore was worth spending. I also spent a little time waiting in SATS Executive Lounge prior to proceeding to boarding gate.

For me, reading and writing while waiting for the flight is worthwile. But spending time for going around and shooting with my mobile phone brought so many things to be memorized and shared.

Here are some shots that you might get if your flight departed from Terminal 3 Changi International Airport Singapore:

I made a visit to The 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2012 in Clark Air Base on February 9-12, 2012. While bringing my DSLR to the festival, I also made a lot of shots with Nokia Lumia 800. The lens is made by Carl Zeiss and the resolution is as high as 8MP.

Taking Fireworks Pictures with BlackBerry 9900

Fireworks is always interesting. Serious photographers might grab a DSLR and slide it into a sturdy tripod. Exposure would be set to slow-shutter speed setting to capture the fireworks trails.

But what would we do with only a mobile phone camera in hand?

Capturing pictures doesn’t solely rely on gear. As long as we get the idea beforehand, then execution just needs a little practice.

In an event in Prambanan Temple, Yogyakarta a couple weeks ago, there was fireworks show to finalize the day. I got myself BlackBerry 9990 in-hand, which I have just received a couple of days back.

First impression, BlackBerry 9900 camera is more responsive than my previous BlackBerry 9780. It has less shutter lag, less time-lapse in-between photo-taking, and smarter light meter. Bigger screen in BlackBerry 9900 is a big addition with better image quality.

Although BlackBerry 9900 camera doesn’t have autofocus-lock, it doesn’t really matter on shooting fireworks. In certain distance of shooting, less autofocus-lock doesn’t become a handicap in producing acceptable mobile phone camera pictures.

I still could capture dark sky as total black, while some other mobile phone cameras produces grayish cast. I also could produce sharp images in a bit difficult situation with dim ambient light and dark background.

I thought I was lucky to be on the right time and the right place to capture the fireworks. But with BlackBerry 9900 in my hand, yes, I am the lucky man with the right gear.

Please be noticed, that none of the pictures attached here have undergone anykind of digital editing. They are all original without any single adjustment.
