Things You Should Know About Amazing Travel Photography

Hello Blog READERS,

Want to wish Happy Thursday To All of You...

Before I start my discussions with you all, Meet My BEST ONLINE FRIEND Dominik [FujiUser - Photography Blog]

He is a photographer living in Vienna/Austria. He loves to take pictures, to travel and experience adventures. Since he feel very connected to Fujifilm’s mindset, he decided to share some stories about his Fuji cameras & him.

I already connect with him at Facebook | Twitter | Instagram


Travel photography is a career for some. Most people though just want to bring back nice photos to show their friends and family. No image will replace the moment of being there, that's why people still travel instead of browsing Google Images! Professional or amateur, the first thing you need is a camera. Yes, a camera, and a real one, not a phone or something you attach on your helmet.

Choosing the best camera to buy requires a good amount of research. However, most modern cameras will do a good enough job, particularly if you do not want to get technical. Today, if you buy any mirrorless or DSLR, you will get a very good camera. Just skip the kit lens and buy a good general purpose one but not a super-zoom as those compromise in image quality and low-light performance. For just making nice photographers, you can get a smaller fixed-lens camera. There are plenty of premium models offering 1" sensors which is a huge leap in image quality from the typical ultra-compact and cellphone camera.

In the middle of all the excitement and packing for the trip, you're missing out on something big. Don't forget to do your homework for the trip. If it's your first time to the destination, you've every reason to do a thorough research before the journey begins. Get to know the surroundings through articles and pictures. You may wish to befriend other famous photographers of the destination. Search the possibility of famous events happening during the dates that you wish to visit. Social media can help you do this!

There are plenty of pictures of the Great Wall of China. Even people who haven't traveled to China have already seen it in photos. If you plan to visit the Great Wall of China, you need to be authentic with your photos. Be creative and think how your photos can stand out from the rest. Don't repeat another version of something that already exists. Look out for subjects who are willing to be captured. It's a skill you'll develop with a lot of time and practice, but would help you to create and capture strong photographic moments.

In addition to bringing backup batteries, you should also be sure to have a few rolls of film (or an extra memory card). Another good idea is to always bracket your shots. Bracketing means shooting three photos instead of one; the first is shot at the recommended aperture, then the second and third are shot one setting too low and one too high. Travel photography is unique in that many of the photo opportunities you have will never be available to you again, so bracketing ensures you have a lot to work with when you get back home.

Every time you go somewhere you should think of yourself as an ambassador to the place you're visiting. Picture that your photo editor has given you an assignment to tell a story with the photos from your trip. Every picture you take while you're on your trip is part of a greater story of your overall vacation. Whenever you can, try to have every picture have meaning and represent a part of your trip. For instance, a good theme for shooting in the desert would be isolation, while celebration would be great for a place full of people. You should always have some kind of connecting line between your pictures.

There are different types of bassinets to choose from such as Portable, Rocking, Round, Moses baskets, Cradle, Wood, Oval, Bassinets with and without wheels. Whichever type you choose, here are some tips to consider in making the right choice.

A bassinet is a piece of furniture that often baby sleeps in from birth until approximately four months of age. It is small enough that an infant might actually think they are still in their mommy's tummy. A mother might often wrap up her baby to feel closer to his/her mommy. A bassinet could be kept next to mommy's bed so that when baby needs to eat she is right there and will not have to get up and rush to the next room to attend to baby. There are many advantages to using a bassinet.

Bassinets are the perfect bedding options for all newborns, particularly before they begin sleeping in a bigger environment such as a crib. Some of the things that you might want to consider when making your buying decision include your budget, the style and decor of the piece, as well as the interior design of the room which it will be placed. This, of course, is not an issue if you intent to get a portable bassinet. But if you do not go in this direction, there are several other options like a wicker bassinet, wooden bassinet, or even a fabric based bassinet with steel posts for support.

Choose a baby bassinet that meets the safety standard of the industry. It should be certified by the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association. Check out the association's website for their list of certified brands.

It is important to check the baby bassinet mattress for comfort. Make sure it is not too soft or too firm. Test for firmness by pressing your finger on the mattress. If your finger sinks down easily, the mattress is too soft. If your finger barely makes an indentation, it is too firm. Your finger should bounce quickly up from the mattress. The mattress should fit snugly within the frame of the bassinet. There should be no gaps or overlaps. The largest space you can allow should not be bigger than your finger which you can test by inserting a finger into the gap between the mattress and the mattress frame. If you can easily two fingers in the gap, then the mattress is too small and may be a risk for baby's safety.

With a myriad of choices to pick from, there is no reason to be worried when picking your new baby bassinet. Go through the details of each one meticulously, write down the positives and negatives, and makes ure you reach an informed decision. I also encourage folks to shop online for bassinets because there are more options to browse through, and customer testimonials are an extremely valuable resource. Pick with confidence, and make sure your baby has a wonderful first few months of life.

Things You Should Know About Surabaya

Greetings To All Blog Readers,

Before I start my talks with you all, Let Me Introduce - Safira Juanda Resort [Residential prestigious south of Surabaya]

Yes, I had GREAT POSITIVE EXPERIENCES with this RESORT. 

It is Close to Juanda International Airport, Railway Station and Terminal Gedangan Purabaya.The main road access Sidoarjo-Surabaya-Malang via East Rim. Also close to Alfamart, Indomart and Superindo.



Surabaya is the capital of the East Java province and is the second largest city in Indonesia. Surabaya is a commercial center with a big seaport - probably one of the largest in the region. The population of this city is approximately 3 million. It is the gateway city to Mount Bromo and to Mount Bali. Though many residents speak the local language Javanese, the national language of Indonesia is Bahasa. Bahasa is the official language and is used in business and education. Recently, English is also used for different purposes such as advertisings and public signs.

The Airport in the city is called Juanda Airport and has regular flights to the capital city, Jakarta and to other major cities of Indonesia. This is the second busiest airport in the country after Jakarta. A few direct international flights are also available from this airport. A fixed fare taxi service is available from the airport to the city which is around 18 km away.

When considering the main attractions in the area, "Surabaya zoo" takes a leading position as one of the most visited attractions. It is the largest zoo in Southeast Asia occupying a width of over 15 hectares and has been divided into several fractions for aquarium and brine, Bird watching, night animals and for a large variety of mammals.

The zoo was opened to public on the 31st August 1916 by a group of animal lovers. Now it is estimated that over 3,500 animals representing more than 400 species are housed in the zoo including Indonesia's rare and other endangered animals in the world. The tower in the zoo is a fantastic way to enjoy an all-inclusive panoramic view of the entire zoo. Visitors who would love to get on the back of the biggest mammal on earth will have the chance to have an exhilarating elephant back ride and also a camel ride.

I want to tell my experience about my trip to East Java especially to Mount Bromo when I was still at the secondary school, 12 years ago. I went with my parents, uncle, my friend and a driver. Our family started the tour from Bogor to Tegal, Central Java. We stayed one night in the hotel.

The next day, we started our trip from Tegal to Surabaya, East Java. We stayed the night in Garden Hotel at Jl. Pemuda Surabaya. The next day we concluded the trip. We chose the route from Surabaya, Sidoarjo, Pasuruan, and stopped in Gending, a small town, about 12 km at the east of Probolinggo to meet an old friend.
