Seeing Stars

Bir Bintang served by the jugs at this riotous Country and Western pub in the heart of Jakarta. The Indonesian national beer started life as the Dutch Heineken beer in 1929. It was ‘nationalised’ from 1957 to 1967.

When you can’t hold the camera steady, use any solid surface as a ‘tripod’ to lessen the possibility of snapping a ‘shaky’ pic. This can be caused by a slow shutter speed due to the dim lighting. In this case, I used the top of a pilsner glass as a ‘tripod’ for this 1/8th of a second exposure. Firing a flash is easy but you lose the ambience.
