10 Things That You didn’t Know About Me

# Each blogger must post these rules.
# Each blogger starts with ten random facts/habits about themselves.
# Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their ten things and post these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose ten people to get tagged and list their names.

# Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog




I don’t know what kind of game is this. At first, I’m tagged by Dilla. Then, I think it is interesting, while I don’t have anythings to do. At least for now. So, I decided to join this game. For your information, these ten facts maybe outside of my expectation and I also surprise that I have facts like those. I hope you don’t. Hehehe..


#1. I really wants to be a lefties.

I don’t know what happens to me, but I’m sure that I really wants to be a left handed. I think it is great to be a lefties. Maybe I’ve got inspired by my hero whose are lefties too. Kurt Cobain. He is a great artist , and he is lefties. At elementary school, I ever try a week to use only my left hand. The result? I think I’ve been dying to write, to eat, and doing many things with my left hand. But, I think I’m far to be a AMBIDEXTERITY, which is a person who can use their both hands perfectly. Hehe… Maybe that’s will happen, if I still continue to use my left hand.  


#2. I was a great nail biter.

Yes, but I stopped two years ago when I’m found all of my fingers bleeding badly. This ridiculous ‘hobby’ began when I was in 3rd grade of elementary school(ES). I remember why I really likes to bite my nails. Those are when I got a nail check in ES, but my nails are very long. So, rather than scold by my teacher, i prefer to bite my nails. Hehehe.. I think that was a stupid thought.


#3. Black is my favorite color.

Black represents elegant, mysterious, cool, and dark. I love wearing black things, even though I rarely wear blackout, which is from my hair to heel is black. I love black color when it comes a details. Like, I love black watches, black cars, black shoes, and black hair. I ever try to paint my room into with a black color, but my parents forbid me to do it. So, I think, when I’m a father, I will have some room that covered with black color.


#4. A vampire??

Hehehe.. It is not like you’ve imagine. I just like to drink snake’s blood with my father. He said that is is good for my body. So, I’m just a son who obeyed his father. But, I enjoyed this suggestion. Hehehe..


#5. I want to meet Kurt Cobain.

Yeah that is right. Although I know that is impossible, I still wants to meet him and tell him how great he was. But, maybe I could meet him when it is a time. 


#6. I was like to skateboarding.

Yes, and it was. I skate from the beginning of my first year in junior-high. I don’t know why I like this game, but this game looks very awesome to me. Caused by some reasons, I stop plays when in my last year in high school. Until now, I still loves to watch any skateboarding event, competition, and many more. My hero in this game is Rodney Mullen. I like Danny Way’s quotation about skateboarding. Here it is: “Skateboarding is not a sport. It is a lifestyle. When you stop skateboarding, you stop life!”


#7. I prefer reading than watching.

It is true that I prefer reading than watching. But, it’s just occurred when it comes to reading a novel. From all of the novel based movie, I often preferred the novel version. I don’t know. When I’m reading a novel, my imagination about what happen in novel is limitless. But, when it comes to the movie, they just take all of my imagination and force me to use their imagination.


#8. I am a pedestrian.

I prefer to use my foot rather than use my car. Yes it is true. But that just for a short distance trip. Hehehe.. When I’m in my first year of University, I often walk from my housing into the campus with my friends. I think it is healthy, rather than to use public transportation. If I don’t bring a car to campus, and there is none of my friend that I can’t go with, so i prefer to walk to my housing. 


#9. I love my third eye.

My third eye is my cameras. Right now, I have three cameras, which are Lumix LX3, D300, and FM 10. But I think I neglected that last one. Hehe.. I love using them to capture every moment, but I prefer to capture the beauty of the earth. Like the shape of the mountain, the shine of sun when it set, the warmth of the stars, the singing sea, the bold of the cloud, and many more.


#10. I’m often to get mad.

Maybe some of you say that I’m quite, calm, and something. But, it is contrary with this facts. Yes, I am often to get mad. But, when I am mad, I always try to shut it down. So, it is often to see me missing or disappear suddenly. For me, disappear from others is my way to shut down my emotion and my anger. Hehehe…


Yeah, that’s not all of my facts actually. There are lot of funny facts if you wants to know. Hehehe… So, I think Reno, Bayu, Alung, Etgar, Rafdy, Anin, Arini, Cacuy, Nissa, and Kenny must be prepare for another of this game.

So, let’s get it on!

Toss With Style

Now, I’ll try to discuss about the photography. Even though I’m not a professional one, i love to capture every moments with my lovely cameras.  But now, i try to discuss something different about photography techniques. Maybe, this technique doesn’t require a lot of photography techniques, such as depth of field, aperture settings, shutter speed, bracketing, and many more. You don’t need any expensive cameras, such as DSLRs to do this technique. You can even use your cellphones’ camera to do this. This technique just requires you to toss your camera with all of your heart. Hehehe…


Thats why this technique named camera toss. You just need to toss your camera. Don’t hesitate to falling of your camera, just use a pillow like the picture above. Usually, camera tossing takes place in a low light condition. Why? It is because camera toss are great in capturing the beauty of lights. Here are some examples of how great that camera toss technique in capturing the beauty of lights.  


Those are the examples of how great that camera toss in capturing the beauty of lights. I took those photos from the blog that talk about camera toss, which is http://cameratoss.blogspot.com. There are also photos that i took from http://www.flickr.com/groups/cameratoss.

Camera tossing are also works great in capturing the landscape and another shape of things. Below are the examples of another camera tossing in capturing view besides lights. These photos are also taken from those camera toss sites. 

Here there are…


Those great photos are the example of the camera tossing. 

One day, i share this technique with my friends. I show that blog and wondering if i can do that or not. So, he try it just a moment after i showed it to him. He try that with his cellphone’s camera. The result? Hehe.. Of course not. I think this technique requires a lot of experience. We must try and try again. Below, i will show my result when trying camera tossing. 


Just that.. Hehe.. I don’t want to show another photos because i still learning this technique. I’m interested in trying this technique because its fun to learn. Even though a patience is a must in learning this technique, it’s still fun to learn. My friend, Reno Nismara (http://indomiejunkie.wordpress.com), also attracted to this camera tossing. Below is example from his work. FYI, he used his cellphone’s camera to create these photos.


One thing you must remember. All of those photos are not retouched by photoshop. Or should i say, it doesn’t required any photoshop retouched. Because the results are just great, so that we are satisfied enough with the photos. 

So, are you interested in trying this technique? If it’s yes, that’s will be a good decision. If it’s no, you should think about that again. Hehehe… And one thing, this technique is a way better than Lomo. Trust Me!!!
