On a trip to Indonesia

For a client I went to Jakarta and Bali. My first visit to the Indonesia.
I had only a week and had to portrait some students doing an abroad Internship. 1,5 day Jakarta and the rest of the week in Denpasar Bali and I’d  time to walk around like a tourist with  my FujiFilm X-E2. Most of the time I uses the FUJINON LENS XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS. For some close-ups I had the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F 3.5-4.8 R LM OIS.


It’s a relieve to travel light and not looking like a pro with the Nikon DSLR’s. With the Fuji you can photograph very inconspicuous and you can easily photograph at high ISO, like 3200.

We went to a bar  named Skye. Located in the heart of Jakarta, on the 56th floor, with a great skyline of Jakarta. There was a strange policy about photographing from the roof. It was forbidden to use a pro camera, only with your cellphone. So I asked the security if the Fuji was a pro. I made a lousy picture, and said look not much, isn’t it? 🙂 So I was allowed to use it. And I screwed up the ISO and made I great handheld photo 😉

Then we left the hectic city Jakarta and went to Denpasar, Bali. Completely another atmosphere. Laid back and very friendly people.
