Apalagi pake natural light. Terus difotonya itu di meja dan dari atas, or usually people call it "The Table Shot".

What does "The Table Shot" mean? "The Table Shot" means a top-down shot using natural light.

Retreight's Yearbook Photo Shoot - Inspired by The Twilight Saga

Hello, fellas! It has been a long time since my last post. I'm so sorry for that, because I had to focus on national exam, and finally I did it! Now I'm on holiday for about more than one month till the announcement of the exam results. And now I'm gonna show you about my class' yearbook photo shoot.

Last March my class, Retreight (Republic of Inter Eight, or 9.8) did a photo shoot with a professional photographer from Sahara Yearbook Maker, Frans Sinaga or we called him "Ko Frans". For this year, the 9th grade students chose "movies" for the theme. And Retreight chose "The Twilight Saga" movie. After we had some meetings, we decided to do our photo shoot at Parangtritis sand dunes for the cover and the Volturi, and Imogiri pine forest for Bella, Edward, Jacob, Renesmee, and the other cast.

Cast: Seysha as Bella, Rafi as Edward, Ardin as Jacob, Oik as Rosalie, Aufaa as Emmett, me as Alice, Dhatu as Jasper, and many more.

So here are the behind the scenes photos:
