Another change I’ve made is the introduction of the logo design. I created the new logo base on my initial, “AAH” which stand for “Ashagi Alindra Harahap” and replaced the “A” of the old logo. The last symbol on the bottom right is my simple depiction of a lens. I retained the square design and simplify the color: using #1C1C1C black for light background and #FFFFFF white for dark background with #CFCFCF grey as the accent color. I also replaced #4D71A3 blue with #E14D43 red.Continue reading article →
Me and my friends went to AQWA on Sunday where I took time to take some pictures of the fishes and other marine animals. I travel light: I brought with me a Canon EOS 6D with two lenses, 17-40mm f/4 L USM and 50mm f/1.8 II, but ended up only using the 17-40mm. Due to the low light environment of the aquarium, I crank up my ISO between 800-1600 and use my widest aperture of 4-4.5.

More than half-a-dozen sign-ups and three twice became “proper” user, this is a telling sign that Instagram is not on my “photo service” list. So why suddenly Instagram interest me again?
There are two apps has been getting on my attention lately. First is VSCO CAM. This photo editing app from VSCO is absolutely spectacular! If you an art filter lover, you love what they have to offer. They have more art filter collection than the other “art filter” apps I know. Of course you have to buy it if you wanted more art filter options. I did bought all the art filters available, although I only use the A series (stand for “Analogue”) and sometimes the T series (stand for Moody). They also have photo editing capability a la Snapseed, though in my opinion not as good as Snapseed.Continue reading article →

So I’m going to tell my own experience.Continue reading article →
Mono is project I did on my free time. I am into black and white photography lately, so it would be a great idea to hone my skill in black and white post-processing.This side project also serves another purpose: recycle. What I mean reusing old photos from my archive that has potential but not quite make it in color department. Here is some of my examples: first photo taken with Canon EOS 550D with Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens. Second photo also taken with Canon EOS 550D, but with Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens. Third and Forth photo taken with Canon EOS 6D with Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM. Please leave the comment below and tell me what you think. Critics and advice are much welcome.Continue reading article →
