Herman Sapta Aji, is a friend we know from Multiply. We contacted him several times through chat messages, and then we found out he had plans to take a photography trip to Belitung with his friends. At first our team will organize his trip but because of the uncertain weather they finally decided to go alone and assisted by a local tour organizer in Belitung.
Returning from Belitung, we found that he was very lucky. The weather was not as bad as previously thought and they could capture rainbows on the coast of Tanjung Tinggi.
Unfortunately, when they take pictures of the rainbow, they don't realize that the rainbow has been very meaningful lately in Belitung. This is related to the uproar of the film Laskar Pelangi which began playing since September 25, 2008. The problem is, none of them have watched the film.
The photos produced by Herman Sapta Aji aka "Mr.Mpu" moved us to ask permission in question to contribute photos for this website. In our opinion, his photos are the most successful photographs capturing the beauty of the Lengkuas and Bird islands, taken in very good weather conditions against a background of clouds and the apparent clarity of sea water.
Not all photographers can do it, except they do have expertise and talent and Herman Sapta Aji is one of them. He made a mistake setting ISO1600 for landscape conditions during the day with his Nikon camera, but it was not seen in the results of his photos. Mr. MP also uses a Nikon D40 Infrared camera to photograph artistically in Gallery No.2, looking unique and yummy.
