The term peafowl can refer to the two species of bird in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae. The African Congo Peafowl is placed in its own genus Afropavo and is not dealt with here. Peafowl are best known for the male's extravagant tail, which it displays as part of courtship. The male is called a peacock, and the female a peahen, although it is common to hear the female also referred to as a "peacock" or "female peacock". The female peafowl is brown or toned grey and brown. Its young is called a peachick. The two species are:
  1. Indian Peafowl, Pavo cristatus (Asiatic)
  2. Green Peafowl, Pavo muticus (Asiatic)
The Indian Peafowl is a resident breeder in the Indian subcontinent. The peacock is designated as the national bird of India and the provincial bird of the Punjab (Pakistan).

The Green Peafowl breeds from Burma east to Java. The IUCN lists the Green Peafowl as vulnerable to extinction due to hunting and a reduction in extent and quality of habitat.

Waiting for the Best Moment

Being a photographer needs passion and patience...

Brahminy Kite

The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus), also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards and harriers.

They are found in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Australia. They are found mainly on the coast and in inland wetlands where it feeds on dead fish and other prey. Adults have a reddish brown plumage and a contrasting white head and breast which makes them easy to distinguish from other birds of prey.

Cameraman in Action

This photograph was taken on the sly. The cameraman didn't notice if I took his photograph, for he was too busy recording skaters doing 360, kickflip, and nose grind.

I'm a Photographer

This sketch is done in 15 minutes. The model is...ME! :) Oh ya, if you notice the writing on the drawing is not correct. I was too rusty! Heheheee...Neway, enjoy!

Duck on My Head

This was taken when I went to JIExpo a couple of months ago. I was taking concert photographs, but suddenly this man blocked my way. His hat was kinda funny, so I took it (the photograph, of course)!

I'm Watching You

Be careful, I'm watchin' you!

Exif Info:
Shutter Speed: 5/300 second
Aperture: F/8.0
Focal Length: 55 mm
ISO Speed: 280

Head and Face: 3/4 View

Today I'm giving you the basic drawing tutorial for (still head and face) 3/4 view. This view is drawn most often in your sketch or comic. If you are getting used to draw head and face from front and side view, I bet this technique will not turn into problem for you because basically it is the "fusion" of the other two views.

To start off the tutorial, I will begin by making a so-called circle. This time the vertical line which states the direction of the head's view is slightly modified by shifting its position a little bit to the left (or right - in accordance with the viewpoint that want to be drawn) and make it slightly curved.

Click the image to enlarge. Clicking the image won't direct you to new window.

Independence Day

Been an age I didn't draw...In order to appreciate my country's 65th Independence Day—which falls today, I made this drawing. Done in 20 minutes...with all the distractions I overcame. Still sketchy, but all right. Hehehee...Please enjoy!

Oh ya...you can see '#indonesia65' at the bottom of the picture, which becomes trending topic on twitter...

And also there is an award from a new blog friend here, Dava (thanks for the Ramadhan award). I will just put it here together with my drawing ;)

According to wikipedia, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."

Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting— "good" or "bad" bokeh, respectively.

Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions. My (only) bokeh pictures...Please enjoy!

Learning Panning

Panning is one of the techniques in photography. It’s a pretty difficult skill to master, but once you do you can get some wonderful shots. In pictures with this technique, the subject, which is moving, appears clear while the background appears blurred.

You do this by simply moving the camera with the subject as it moves. This can be difficult, because the field of your shot needs to be moving at the same speed as the subject. To accomplish this, you should begin moving the camera before the subject enters your field, and continue moving the camera after the subject has exited. Also, remember not to set your shutter speed too fast or the subject and background will both come out clear.

Don’t get discouraged if you don’t perfect this technique right away – it’s tough; just keep practicing. Here are some of my pictures taken with panning technique:

My first attempt: FAILED! ;)

Missing My Blog

Lately this blog has never been updated. But now, the business is over and I'll completely return to update my blog again. I do hope I could take some (or maybe many) lessons from what I have been through during the past two (or three) weeks, that can make me grow up and stronger than before. Just like an old saying,
In school you were taught a lesson and then given a test. But in life, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson.
And I think I have passed the life test that was just given to me, Amin. Even tough I know this is going to be difficult, I can convince myself I'm able to do it. Time to give someone else a chance...Thank's for being the highlight of my life.
