In my previous post about Custom Bokeh, I mentioned about how to create custom shaped bokeh for still photography. On Thursday, I visited the opening season of Mindil Beach Markets in Darwin with fireworks and I practice the custom bokeh for that. The result was pretty entertaining and colorful, I couldnt stop myself watching them and here it is the video:

First time in NZ and we traveled around in South Island driving from Christchurch toward North and stayed overnight or two in Kaikoura, Nelson, Hikitika, Queenstown, Lake Tekapo and back to Christchurch before flying to Sydney. All footages and photos taken by Irawan during trip February 2012.

2011 had been an interesting year for my photo journey. We went to the Philippines for the first time, that was exciting and beautiful, went back to Indonesia to visit families and had a chance to go to Sulawesi and dive in Bunaken, something that I’ve always wanted as it was apparently one of  the best diving spots in Indonesia.

The highlight was when we were about to go home to Darwin and visited my aunt in Denpasar and was looking for a taxi and then someone with his motorbike grabbed my EOS camera and ran away, but then the insurance were easy enough to cover the lost and with the same price as the lost camera I bought, I could upgrade to a better one. Altough, I still cant forgive myself for not backing up the photos from that holiday.

And the other highlight is I made some of my shots in to the local newspapers, and one of them, which was the Cyclone Carlos, was at the front page.

Anyway busway, :D, here are some photos from 2011 that I like, should’ve been more with the lost one:

This was the first time we visited the Philippines, went straight to an island called Boracay. We loved it!! Thought we might go back there again. People are nice, friendly and polite. Places are clean and the local knows how to queue! I did my open water course there and the dive site was very good. It was probably the busiest time of the year because we went on the holy week time where there were lots of parties and music shows happening on the Island but we were staying at the quiet area which was Station 2.

Everyone loves basketball in this country, and lucky them they have court by the beach. Barefoot but looks fun.
