Happy birthday Kantin Megarasa. The restaurant has become a favourite place for photographers to hang out or used as a meeting point. Located in Kota Tua, where there are a lot of old buildings, hence make it attractive to photographers to come to the area. The restaurant itself is no longer just a place to eat. Now they have photo studio upstairs, and some photography community, like Fotoklenik often have workshops there as well. In celebrating its birthday, a special hunting was held in building across the canteen, Gedung Cipta Niaga. Hosted by Wiwin from fotografer.net and MC for the day, Santy. There are more than 10 models, 100 photographers, lots of prizes, food and drinks. Some of the models featured are already well known among photographers, like Mayanda Nabila, Cindy Biemuth, Olivia Sharon and Elis Chin. Here are some of the photos:

Today is known as May Day or the labour day. But I spend the day at Kota Tua, doing photoshoot. Once again, it is held by A2C. There are 8 models posing for the day. Each group consists of 10 people and we got rotated every 20 minutes. I only took the morning session. it started at 9 am, and finish at 12 pm. Here are the models:
About the location, it is located at Kota Tua next to Batavia cafe. It is an old building and it is empty. We had our photoshoot on the 2nd floor. There are people who actually live on the first floor. There are no props available around that we can use, since the building is empty. There are a lot of windows in the building, so I take advantage of it for the lighting and lots of pictures are taken with backlighting. I also managed to borrow and test the 135 L 2.0 canon lens..
