Moventum Pictures

Long time no post! The last year of my undergraduate degree is well underway, and with that comes the stress of writing dissertations, running lab experiments, applying for jobs, maintaining a social life, yadda yadda yadda. In short, it’s been hectic.

Nevertheless, I want to take sometime to introduce you to Moventum Pictures, a photography and videography collective I initiated last November! I’ve been wanting to jump into photography for ages now, but have always settled for phone photography. Recently, however, I managed to purchase a secondhand Canon 600D, and I wanted a platform to share some of my more serious photographs. This is where Moventum Pictures comes along.

At the moment, Moventum Pictures is simply an Instagram account where I post my DSLR photos. Nonetheless, as I get better at taking photographs and as the account following grows, I’m hoping to feature or recruit other photo/videographers into the collective. Additionally, I plan on posting the photos I published on the Instagram account (@moventumpics) on the Bits & Pieces: Photographs section of this blog too, but it will take some time to get it up to speed. Until then, should you be interested in viewing my photos more regularly, then please feel free to follow the account.

That’s all I have for today, but more stuff coming soon. And oh, happy new year!

Photographs: Manmadesthics #2

>> About Manmadesthics

Manmadesthics is a photography collection aiming to capture aesthetically pleasing patterns that are created by humans – manmade + aesthetics = manmadesthics. This is my second blogpost about this collection; you can find the first post here.

Photographs: Nature Speaks #1

Yet another update about a brand new photography collection. Following Cityscapes and Manmadesthics, I’d like to introduce my third ongoing photography project called Nature Speaks. This collection aims to capture instances whereby nature seemingly, well, “speaks” to us humans – this is dedicated to giving nature a voice.

Let me know if you have thoughts on any of my photography projects, and as always, stay tuned for more!

Introducing the first update about my new photography collection, Manmadesthics. Through this project, I hope to capture aesthetically pleasing patterns that are created by humans (hence the title of this collection). Stay tuned for more updates in the future!

Photographs: Cityscapes of Jakarta

I’m starting a new photography collection called Cityscapes. As the name suggests, the collection aims to capture defining landscapes of some of the greatest cities in the world. For this first update, I’m featuring my very own hometown, Jakarta!

Home to over ten million people, malls have become an integral part of this Indonesian capital city. In September 2013, Indonesian president Joko Widodo claimed that there are 173 malls in Jakarta [1], and I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if the number has grown since then. As such, below are two shots I took at Pacific Place, one of the malls in Central Jakarta.

Stay tuned for more Cityscapes updates featuring Jakarta and other cities all across the globe.

“You reap what you sow.” – Galatians 6:7

“[It’s] karma. You get what you give, whether it’s bad or good.” – Sandra Bullock, Actress and Producer

Life is often attributed to having a cyclical quality and, simply put, this design aims to represent such universal truth.

  • Black and white filter: conveys the components of life using typical colour associations – the bad (black), the good (white), and everything in between (grey)
  • Text positioning: under the photo’s light source, symbolises that the quote is an underlying truth of life
  • Font type: Snell Roundhand in cursive and italics, illustrates the way the concept is so embedded in our day-to-day lives that it sometimes exists in finer print
  • Text alignment: centred to align the two “around” within the quote, emphasises the existence of a cycle(s) in life and the theme of recurrence
