I like to learn new processes with my photo editing. So now I am starting a new workflow for when I am on the road. Lightened the load and ditched the laptop for starters. So now all my photo editing (on the road) will be done on mobile applications.

One of my favourite features of the DJI Mavic Pro is the ability to switch the camera to portrait mode and capture in RAW bracketed photos to process and turn out images such as this one looking over the valley of Bukit Tinggi in West Sumatra. VIEW THE FULL SIZE HERE
I recently took up a little photo assignment for a local publication but it was a location that was already on my hit list and had been for a long time so I was happy to give up a planned trip in another location of Sumatra to tackle this magnificent location in North Bengkulu. A waterfall named Curug 9 just north of the city of Arga Makmur in north Bengkulu. This location is a 3.5 hour hike from the nearest village and it is finished off in the last hour by a very extreme descent, which is not for the […]
