Charming the locals in Indonesia

I'd been location scouting for my shoot tomorrow and at the end of the first session of scouting, these two ladies happened past me.

They'd taken photos of each other and I approached and asked to get one of the pair of them. They had such great smiles and such a great parasol.

Lovely ladies. Got their email and am sending them a copy of this shot.

Tomorrow I do a landscape and a fashion shoot in this area, around the old ruins in Yogyakarta, mid-way down Java. Awesome locations. really looking forward to tomorrow.

Gear etc?

  6. Hi +nafisa alma I am still here. We've had a long day. Still shooting, I am writing this sat at a table at the Ramayana ballet. We are waiting to shoot the dancers tonight. We've been out shooting since 5am and won't be finished until about 1am. But all the work we've achieved today has been awesome to be a part of. In Yogya one more full day – tomorrow. Then we leave for Dubai, for a few day's shoot there. After that it's Malaysia for five days and then home to Japan. I am staying at Aburrakmo Hotel. If you fancied a coffee or something tomorrow evening, that could be nice. I don't know exactly when I will be finished with work but will know sometime early tomorrow.
