japan is beautiful!i finally had the opportunity to travel again after last year's euro trip. this time i'm going to japan for a week with my family. i have always been fascinated with japan and its culture and going there really reaffirmed my fascination. i only went to osaka, nara, kobe, and kyoto, no tokyo sadly because there's just not enough time. that would reason enough to come back to japan i guess.
anyway, i took lots of photos during my trip so expect some new uploads on my gallery! (finally!!)
eid mubarak!hey everyone, how are you? hope you're doing great.
it's eid here in indonesia so eid mubarak to all of you who celebrates! may this joyful festivity be the reminder for us to keep advocating peace, compassion, and tolerance through our actions. taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum.
anyway, sorry for still not being able to keep my promise of updating this gallery of mine. work has been really busy and i barely have time to pursue personal projects. i also no longer work as web designer so there's really not much that i can show work-wise. i decided to move from design department to project management at work because i feel like the latter could give new experience and things to learn. it's hard stepping out of my comfort zone at first but i surely don't regret making that decision.
btw, i just joined instagram recently, you can check my profile here: http://instagram.com/arhcamt. it has been a while since i touched my camera and being on inst
remember me?i'm really thankful if you still do. haha. can't believe my last activity here was about five months ago. and not a gallery update like i promised in my previous journal post. i'm so bad at keeping promises. -_-
anyway, happy new year everyone, wish you all 365 days of greatness ahead! looking back, last year has got to be the best year of my life so far. the highlight is definitely may-june where i had my euro trip. i broke so many self-boundaries and ventured so far out of my comfort zone it's almost unbelievable. if someone told me i would do what i did i probably would laugh at them. but i did. it happened. i experienced a lot of things during my trip, learned valuable lessons, and met amazing people. i certainly wouldn't have grown that much had i not brave enough to forget the risk and take the leap of faith. i feel grateful and blessed that i get the chance, i understand not everybody has that kind of opportunity.
i never have new year's resolution list because i know that i'll
back from euro trip!hi everyone, how are you? hope you're doing good!
as the title says, i've completed my 42 days travel and came back to jakarta a couple days ago. it's an amazing experience and dare i say life-changing. at first i was kinda afraid about it because everything is new and so out of my comfort zone. i even had cold feet once, i was seriously considering about cancelling the trip but i went with it anyway because i somehow felt that if i didn't make that trip at that time i never would. so i did. and it was nothing but amazing.
i planned on writing a more elaborate report about my trip in the form of blog posts, even book perhaps. i want to share the story and hopefully inspire people on the process. i think it's something that everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. i can't help with the funding so the least i can do is at least help with the determination. wish me luck.
i took tons of photos during my travel so expect to see some activity (finally!) in my gallery. (hey
departing for europe soon + prints for sale!hey everyone, how are you? i hope you're doing great.
like what you have probably heard before, i will be having my long-awaited euro trip really soon. in fact, i'd be departing for amsterdam, my first destination, in only a couple days. i am both excited and anxious about the trip because i haven't actually finished all the preparation for the trip and i have never been there before. i hope everything goes well and i don't get lost there. haha. i'm planning on documenting the journey on my facebook here: http://facebook.com/rachmatlianda so feel free to stalk me there.
on a side note i have put all my available prints on sale so please do get one (or some) for your wall. i'll be using up all my savings for this trip and it would definitely help to have it filled again. who knows maybe i'll have the chance to visit US next. i think i'm starting to fall in love with traveling.
anyway thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
need your help for my euro trip. :)yes you read it right. i will be going to europe to fulfill my lifelong dream! i'm beyond excited. i have only purchased the tickets so far, i hope there will be no trouble in obtaining the schengen visa. i will be departing on april 2012 so i got some time to prepare. i will be there for about 2 and half months so i'm kinda risking my job here. if i don't get the permission then i guess i'll just have to resign. i don't mind though, that's the risk i'm willing to take. crazy i know, but i don't get many chances to be crazy so might as well take this one. i still haven't really decided which places i'd like visit. i'm having trouble choosing because i want to visit them all!
my budget is not unlimited, in fact it's actually quite limited, which is why i'd like to ask quite a favor to my fellow deviant friends here for a place to stay during my couple days visit. i have some friends who have kindly offered me a place to stay but chances are i'm gonna need more as i'll be go
it's my birthday. :D
long time no see everyone! how are you? i hope you're doing good.
so today is my birthday and just like last year and the year before that i tried to sum up this year into a single typographic work. i almost forgot i had this project, thankfully i just remembered about it out of nowhere. haha.
basically this has been a.. life-changing year if i could say so myself. i learned lots and lots of thing and i can feel that i'm a different person from myself one year before, for better or worse. more of the better i hope.
again, i'd like to apologize for my lack of activity here. at times i feel like i want to go back to those times where i could create something almost everyday but i have to admit that those days are gone. it's a bit hard to take for me actually but i'll manage. i'm not saying i'm leaving here for good. this place has been a home for me and it will always be. for now i'd like to think of my absence here as going somewhere else for a vacation. i don't k
still alive. but depressed.not because i have things i want to complain about my life (okay, that maybe too) but because i watched grave of the fireflies last night. i've heard that it's a sad story but i have no idea it would impact me this much. the thought that it's the very depiction of the cold reality and that it could be happening to children all over the world everyday makes it even worse. this made me feeling broken and defenseless but at the same time i feel glad i got the chance to see this. i have to say it's studio ghibli's masterpiece. if you haven't watched it then i really recommend you to do so but i'm warning you, the post-watch experience might be somewhat unpleasant.
anyway, how are you? i hope you're doing great. it feels like ages since the last time i was here. this used to be my second home but now i can't help but feel like a stranger. as for me, life is good actually. i got my dream job, i get to do what i like and get paid for it, i ma
Rapunzeli saw the movie yesterday and it's just AMAZING. i didn't plan on watching the movie actually. i'm not really excited about it because i prefer it to be 2D animation like princess and the frog. but since i have some time to kill i decided to just watch the movie.
the movie had me at the first 5 minutes. the voice acting is good, the songs are nice, the animation is smooth, and the story is great too. but what i love the most about this movie is how every frame is an artwork. i have to say this is definitely one of disney's best animations. i will totally watch this movie again. definitely a 10/10.
watch it on 3D. it's worth every penny.
You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
Avoid That dAramaAnyone who has been an internet user for a period of time should know that drama is one of the hallmarks of the absolutely wonderful technology that allows us to be connected 24/7. It's like glitter, one moment all you see is just a fleck of it then suddenly, it's everywhere. DeviantArt is chock full of massive amounts of it (drama, not glitter!) at any given time, so let's talk about what you need to know to avoid it (aaaand what to do if you find yourself in it)!
I just caused the argument because... I wanted to get more pageviews, I wanted to be popular, for the lulz, I was bored
I ALWAYS have to reply
If you think the interwebs is the only place you'll find people you don't agree with, I think it's time you spent a little more time away from your computer. First off, let me say that there's nothing inherently wrong about disagreeing with someone. Nothing at
Freelance Paychecks are RealA few weeks back while thinking about this journal, I came across a forum for paid photojournalism jobs. I left it some time later in complete shock. There I found posting after posting about jobs paying nothing, next to nothing, or promising payment and then paychecks never arriving in the mail. I sat there, closed the laptop lid, and thought for a long while.
I know I’m fortunate to be paid for what I do. A big part of this is because I specialize in something very few photographers are doing at a professional level. But what most people don’t realize is that even at this level a large percentage of my workload involves pay negotiations. There are contracts that took months of negotiation. Some took weeks, or a single week, or several days, or a flurry of emails or texts in just a few minutes.
Every single one of those initially low-balled me; offering me starting contracts at 10-20% of my regular rate. And despite publications th
