Surf, Sun, and Sand

sorry for making you crave for more summer holiday at the beach days. I cant help but post these pictures I took with my high school friends around a week ago. Editing process was a pain (took me hours, maybe even days, to choose and edit from like 500 photos). I wish the sky was actually blue instead of gray (yes we mostly get gray skies here in Indonesia) on that day.. too bad the "photoshoot" only had one outfit. We plan to change but not long after we started snapping, a clad of perves from the nearby construction site showed up. So yeah, we had to pack up quickly and dash back to the house.


*ps* all the blue skies here are editted..haha.. believe me they're not even this blue in real life !

this is probably the BEST jumpshot I've ever had in my life.. this picture is a better representative of the actual sky color..

photos by me. (except for those with me in it)
editting all by me.


hope you all enjoyed these photos as much as I did :) I'm still a newbie in photography but I'm willing to accept constructive criticism from anyone of you ! I just got some new lens for my camera, hopefully I'll be able to show the pictures from them really soon.

Many of you asked what camera I'm using. I'm using a canon 500D with standard kit lens (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6) at the moment. I'm slowly making my FAQ page so you all can find common question answers there.

thanks to all people who followed my blog ! cant believe my leisure project made me reach 755 followers on Google and 132 followers on BlogLovin ! i cant find a better way to thank you all lovely readers.

hope you're all off to a great week ! happy wednesday loves x)

So, yeah, obviously this is an amazing post. I will now just go and do my homework and maybe cry a little...
