What Types of Image Do You Like to Photograph?

 

When I saw these shoes contrasting the simple background, I was so intrigued to shoot it.*
 
Do you like taking picture of people? Building? Food? Or landscape such as mountains and beaches or roads?
I used to just like taking pictures of people, because people tell stories. Through their gesture, emotion, things they are doing (if they are captured when doing something), even clothes they wear tell stories.

Then I fall in love with landscape, as they are pretty easy to capture, all I have to do is just click the camera to the view I find interesting.

I also fall in love with building, as they build up so many questions over their silence.

And recently, as we moved to a big city and going out with small children very often is not much an option, I fall in love with photographing food at home and making portrait of my young children (which of course they refuse from time to time).

So basically, I fall in love with nothing in particular. I love them all. I will take pictures of anything, anywhere.

What kinds of pictures fascinate and drive your passion?

Apa yang suka kamu foto?

Apakah kamu suka foto manusia? bangunan? makanan? atau pemandangan seperti gunung, pantai dan jalan?

Saya dulu hanya suka foto manusia, karena manusia punya banyak cerita. Melalui bahasa tubuh, emosi, hal-hal yang mereka lakukan, bahkan jenis pakaian yang mereka kenakan.

Kemudian saya jatuh cinta dengan pemandangan, karena mereka sangat gampang untuk difoto. Yang harus saya lakukan hanya meng-klik tombol shutter. 

Saya juga suka dengan bangunan, karena dalam kesunyiannya bangunan juga bisa bercerita.

Dan akhir-akhir ini ketika pindah ke Jakarta, dan sering keluar dengan anak-anak untuk hunting foto bukanlah sebuah pilihan, saya jadi tertarik dengan memotret makanan dan anak-anak di rumah (tentu saja mereka sering menolaknya).

Jadi pada dasarnya, saya suka semua jenis foto, tidak ada yang khusus. Saya akan memoto apa saja, dimana saja.

*Foto tersebut saya ambil ketika berada di kolam renang di lingkungan apartemen. Saya tidak tahu itu sepatu siapa, tapi ketika melihat sepatu itu begitu kontras dengan latarnya, saya langsung mengambil kamera hp.

    I like photographing and including in my blog, on anything that is relevant and is a half decent photo. Beautiful/unusual landscapes, Nature, creations by human beings (art, architecture, artifacts,etc.) Photos are also evidence of what I have witnessed or experienced…ie. flood in our city which over 100,000 people were evacuated.

    1. Yes, I agree that photos are evidence of what we have experience or witness and it is our own history that we can show and tell our next generation. Photos provide moments for us all to remember, stories that will make us laugh and cry and sometimes it speaks better than words.
