After Shanghai, we travelled to Indonesia where we started in the Banten province, located in the west of Java. We began the journey in the small town of Carita, which was the perfect place to base ourselves. From here we could start exploring the western part of the island and enjoy unspoiled nature and visit small villages while safely avoiding other tourists. This portrait was made in the centre of Carita. The people in Indonesia are really very friendly and are always willing to pose for you.
What do you think of "the boy who repairs scooters"?
Everything about this photo is right ! I love the subtle highlights, mildly exposed shadows, the smoke, his expression. You have brought it all together here so well. There is such depth, such a 3D feeling. This is how portrait photography is done.
