This blog is about my passions which are film and digital photography, cinema, music and travel. With heavy focus on photography of course (-;

My interest in photography comes, hence the title “inspired by films”, from my love for motion pictures.

If you share my love for film (35mm, 120mm and sometimes Polaroid) and also black and white photography stop by at my tumblr: http://pramudiya.tumblr.com

Right now my favourite directors are Michael Haneke, Stanley Kubrick, Ingmar Bergmann, Chan-Wook Park, Steve McQueen, David Lynch and Gaspar Noe. I do appreciate a loooot more, but all of those listed speak to me like most of the other brilliant ones most people know do not.

I’ve been on a strict vegan diet since 2011 cause of ethical and ecological reasons and i don’t drink alcohol. Besides watching insane amounts of Films and TV-Series i like to read, sadly due to my studies, i do not read a lot anymore, furthermore i listen to a loooot of music, mostly instrumental music even though in recent months i tend to listen to more electro and some pop/indie music. My favourite musicians are as of now (beginning of 2014) probably Nils Frahm, Sigur Rós, Jon Hopkins, Max Richter, Abel Korzenioswki, Oskar Schuster and a lot of classical composers especially Chopin, Schubert, Dvorak, Reich (i played violin a long time).

Thanks a lot for stopping by and that you took some time to check out my works. Please feel free to ask me questions or chat with me on Twitter. One reason why i love to travel besides seeing and experience different places, cultures is because you meet people from all over the world with similar interests.

I appreciate every support, inspiration and feedback very much. So don’t hesitate to drop me a message, mail or add/like my facebook page, or share my works to people who you think might like it!

  1. Thank you for stopping by my corner of the web and following my blog! I hope you continue to enjoy my work. I have enjoyed clicking through your blog, you have some amazing images! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and “liking” my Minestrone recipe. With a new camera I’m expanding my interest in photography, so I’ve enjoyed looking over your wonderful shots. Please keep in touch and I”ll do the same.

  3. I love your eye behind that camera! So dream-like and Parisian. It reminds me of the awesome photography that came out of high fashion in Europe in the late 80’s early 90’s. (like Ellen Von Unworth, Misel, Peter Lindbergh etc). You have a great eye. Keep doing what you are doing! 🙂

  4. Thank you for visiting my blog: just checked out your website and your photography is inspiring, although I am not a portrait photographer myself. I love the way you compose your images. Keep up the good work, I will be back!

  5. I wanted to thank you for visiting my modest blog and being kind enough to “like” some of my pictures.

    I’ve genuinely enjoyed visiting your blog and find your work interesting and inspiring. I especially like the self-portrait on this page, with all the polaroids, which look like a story board of sorts. I see it as a story within the story. The French call it “mise en abîme”, I think.

    Good stuff!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I seem to be a lot to learn about the various techniques of photography from your blog. I will frequently visit your blog to get a variety of ideas to make a good photo. oh yeah …. I also have visited your website, and I was very impressed. For the last time, do not forget to re-visit my blog and provide a variety of input or criticism so that I could be a professional photographer will be. Once again thank you very much.

  8. Great work, P . Took a quick jaunt around some pages (the link for ” homepage” seems sort of broken, but maybe just me.) I love that you’re into analog. Have you seen The Impossible Project- Polaroid maniacs ?! {: o
    You have a good eye, great feeling, most of all. Thanks for visiting.

  9. Thanks for checking out Heart & Sight. I love your photos, and am intrigued by your source of inspiration. I look forward to following your work! I’d appreciate your feedback on mine if you feel so inclined…. thanks.

  10. At a glance your blog tittle looks Indonesian, Pramudiya is very familiar with many Indonesian’s names. you don’t tell us about where you are in this about. Thanks a lot for always liking my post and your support is highly appreciated. muhammads

  11. Thanks for liking one of my articles.
    It is interesting to see how different people can be. I think I am mostly an auditory person (I even have a category “sounds” in my blog) and I am interested in ideas and thoughts. Your blog is a surprise to me because it is exclusively visual. I have never put much attention on pictures on my blog although theoretically I know that I would get more attention if I would take the time to select a picture. I find these differences fascinating,
    Some of your pictures are really beautiful. It looks like you took some in cologne. The one with the jumping man, is that this old Messe-building in Deutz, near the Rheinpark?

      • Do you do portrait photographs? There is no rally good picture of myself. In case you do and it is affordable and you visit cologne again, you might contact me 🙂

  12. Thanks for stopping by and liking my post on southern Indian cooking…
    You take amazing pix. I’m looking forward to checking out all your pix..
    Do you do any food pix?
    Hope you’ll visit my page again

  13. Thank you for your comment and I’ll try to keep it up.
    Your pictures are wonderful and I am just now starting my stint into analog photography. Hope it turns out as well as yours…


  14. Absolutely stunning photography… when I see such great images it really reminds me of how much I have still to learn. Having said that I will add that looking at your photos inspires me to keep looking and learning! 😉

  15. Well, first off many thanks for liking my snow monkey photgraph, much appreciated.
    Second and most importantly, I am very glad that I found your blog and discovered your work. You are an extremely talented photographer with a great eye and a great style. Hat’s off to you.
    Among your many beautiful images, I particularly liked your rendition of the Louvre (genius angle and composition for such an over photographed location), the image in your banner, the image of the two Asian ladies in “portrait but different” (great high key image, so clean and Zen-like) and your image in Weddings are beautiful. Great, great work. Congratulations.
    Finally, one request, if I may: I’d love to follow your blog, but personally I much rather follow through a WP “follow” button, because that way whenever you post something I get an email in my inbox. Could you add it to your blog? Just in case you wanted to, it is very easy: just go to Appearance/Widgets in your Dashboard and then drag the follow button to your sidebar, and you are done.
    Thanks anyway.

  16. Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for the time you’ve taken looking at some of my work and I’m glad that they’ve been enjoyable to you. I especially enjoyed your “portrait but different”, I’d call it subdued elegance.

  17. Hi, thank you for “liking” my blog post! Means a lot!
    You take beautiful photographs, and I admire you blogging about your passion.
    PS your link to your post about you is not working! Thanks again!

  18. So flattered that you stopped by my blog. You have an amazing artistic talent. Do you mind sharing what equipment you use? I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    • thank you so much and your blog is great (-: the equipment i use, at least the camera model most of the time is added as a tag. if you want to know more specific details feel free to ask. i thought about adding a “what’s in my bag post/page” this will be posted in the future.

  19. hi I stopped at your blog and see pictures of nice and cool, you are so professional
    and thank you so much for liking my recent photo today, maybe I will always visit here

  20. Thank you for liking my posts. You have an amazing eye for composition, I look forward to seeing more of your work. I love the locations you have chosen to photograph in – there is nothing better than seeing the world for oneself.

  21. I love your paris photos. I will be visiting there soon and hope to share some with you as well. i am now following you on Twitter. Photography and travel are two of my passions, also. 🙂

  22. Thanks for liking my photograph a while back, it means a lot to have such a talented guy appreciate my work. Your photographs are really classy and professional. I can’t say enough about them. Love your work… Keep it up!

  23. Hi there! Thank you for the like on my blog, and can I just say WOW! There is some serious inspiration in these images. I will definitely be returning to look at more and can’t wait to see your future views of the world. You give us amateurs something to aspire to, certainly!

  24. Evelyn#2 is wonderful. Her dress contrasts the scene, the look on her face and her posture. She looks as though she’s had a WTF kind of day requiring a cig. Very intimate. JON

  25. Hi there! I have nominated you for the Shine On Blogger award, because I think your blog is just plain groovy. As per the instructions given to me, you now need to tell us seven things about your lovely self, and then nominate seven other bloggers that you think take the cake! If you want to see how I did it, the link to my post is here:


    Thanks for sharing your vision with the world!

  26. Interesting blog! Our family loves film as well. My son, John, met Steve McQueen on the set of “Twelve Years a Slave” when it was being filmed in New Orleans last summer (2012). John was an “extra” for one of the street scenes. Can’t wait until the movie’s release in November! Thanks for stopping by “Laura’s Lens”. I’m just getting started with photography and am enjoying it very much!

    • Thanks for your kind and interesting post! Wow that is very cool that your son met Steve McQueen, i am also extremely excited about “12 Years a Slave” Great that you started with photography much more fun (-:

  27. Some really strong imagery here! Also love your choice of directors and inspiration. I’d likely add Wes Anderson, Darren Aronofsky, and just about anybody (but especially Sidney Lumet and Antonioni) shooting in the 70s. The film stock, the long shots, the single takes, ah, they just don’t have the patience for that anymore… 😉 Keep up the good work !

    • Hey Christopher, thanks for your message and your kind words. Aronofsky i will add right now! Because when i wrote this post i apparently forgot about him even though, i am a big fan of his works since PI. I only saw few of Antonio’s works but i am eager to watch more. I just checked your homepage and you have some amazing architectural and landscapes shots on there! Thanks for stopping by, best PRAMUDIYA

  28. So nice of you to leave a reply at my Cologne post. I see in your photography many pics in Cologne as well. Very nice. As for the pandas, its a pity you missed it, I bed you would have made awesome photographs of them! They made a tour through whole Germany and stayed in several places for one day each.

  29. Absolutely superb photography! I came here via WordPress’ feature on photographers with portfolios and in looking at various themes, came across your site. I am inspired to create another blog strictly for my photography. Now, after seeing your site I’ll definitely do it. We have a lot of similar tastes so consider me your new follower!

    Keep up the great work!

    • Hey Nando, thank you for your kind words and how you found my blog! I just checked out your great one and if you make an “only-photography” blog let me know. Thanks again, all the Best PRAMUDIYA
