I have a good time today at HONFablab, a fabrication laboratory here in my city Yogyakarta. Along with some of my fellow crafter at Indonesian crafter Yogya region, we have a tour hosted by Magic Fingers syndicate (MFS). After an introduction by Tommy and Agha we had a demo on how to use that monstrous machine, on Laser cutter machine our mentor is Ahong, and on Shopbot machine we have Bram as our tutor, they patiently teach us how to operate the machine. I gave up on the Shop bot hahaha because its more complicated than the laser cutting machine. No more to say cause i’m not good with words (haa), here’s a bunch of pictures from our tour.
Seneng banget hari ini, saya dan beberapa teman di Indonesian Crafter tour ke HONFablab, sebuah laboratorium fabrikasi yang ada di kota Yogyakarta. Tur ini diselenggarakan oleh Magic Fingers Syndicate. Pertama tur dimulai, ada perkenalan apa itu HONFablab oleh Mas Tommy dan Mas Agha. Setelah perkenalan baru deh kita liat demo bagaimana car menggunakan mesin-mesin super gede itu. Pertama ada Mas Ahong yang ngajarin cara mengoperasikan mesin Laser Cutting dan kedua ada Mas Bram yang ngajarin cara mengoperasikan mesin Shopbot, serius mesin shopbot itu lebih susah huhuhuhu jadi nyerah deh kalo mau ngoperasiin sendiri. Daripada baca tulisanku yang amburadul, yuk liat foto-fotonya.

Yippie! Paperon will be on the Craft Carnival #3. If you happens to be in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, please do come by to Indiecology cafe, Sagan and say hello. There will be lots of crafty goods that you could buy and interesting workshops that you could join.
Hi there ya’ guys, I just wanna share my “studio” where I photograph most of my paperon products. It’s very high tech and full of gadgets. Ready? here it is..
Halo semua, aku mau kasih lihat studioku nie, yang biasanya ku pakai buat foto produknya Paperon. High tech banget deh studioku dan penuh dengan gadget masa kini.. Penasaran? Lihat yaaa..
Hehehe did I fool you? basically my studio just a couple of styrofoam board to bounce that natural light from the window, and the window works as a filter. If you have a cloudy weather and dont have a good light, change you white balance setting in your camera to cloudy, it will give a warmer result instead a bluish picture. Add in some props.. In my case is a vintage sewing machine table, and doily, and there you have it! A very high tech photo studio hahaha
Hehehehe studioku cuma pakai dua papan styrofoam buat mantulin cahaya ke produknya plus foto deket jendela biar dapet cahaya natural, jendelanya juga berfungsi sebagai filter biar ga terlalu keras cahaya ke produknya. Kalo lagi mendung dan cahaya yang masuk gak begitu bagus, ganti aturan white balance di kameramu ke cloudy, nanti hasilnya akan bernuansa hangat daripada berwarna kebiruan. Habis itu tinggal tambahin properti aja untuk mendukung produknya.
Hope you like my idea of a high tech photo studio

So one day I had nothing to do, do you have those days when your creativity seems blocked but you want to do something anyway. Well I just scrolling through my instagram (it’s @arq_den in case you want to check :P) I follow this guy @cooperscuts he is a paper cutter artist, well I dont know what he’s called I just called him that anyway this guys works are amaaaazing, always drop my jaw when I see his works. So I kinda feeling inspired and start making this..
Certainly mine was not as good as him, lots of clumsy cuts here and there. But I like the out come, and I incorporate the method to my mini handmade notebook.
How’s your week? do you found new method to outlet your creavity?
