365 Project : Day 172

Taken at the beach using my fisheye lens.  I really like this lens, it gives you a whole new different perspective! Gears: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/20 | ISO 120 Post process: Dodging and burning Curves adjustments to correct exposure Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 160

I have to admit that this was a test shot, I was trying to check if my sensor has dust on it… Forgot that I was using a fisheye =) Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f22 | 1/50 | ISO 100 Post process: Adjusted some curves settings TGIF! /Mike

365 Project : Day 152

Al Hamra Fort in Ras Al Khaimah is really a good place to chill.  The place is rather old compare to the new beach resorts in RAK, but I guess it has its own charms… Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f4.5 | 1/25 | ISO 100 Post process: DRI from 3 exposures Dodging and burning Applied curves settings to adjust contrast Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 151

Taken during sunset at Al Hamra Fort.  It’s getting harder and harder to shoot recently.  Everytime I take the camera out, it fogs really quickly and not only its going to ruin your shot, but also the camera and lens as well.  But, what can I do, I can’t stop humidity and wait till the sunset is over 🙁  Anyway, just sharing. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/25 | ISO 100 Post process: Digital blending […]

365 Project : Day 150

The beach is one of the places you can easily reach to relax.  However as of the moment here in Dubai, the weather is darn too hot! Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/25 | ISO 100 Post process: 3 exposures using DRI Dodging and burning Added vignette Hope everyone’s well! /Mike

365 Project : Day 114

This is one of the newest mall around… Mirdif City Center.  Taken a few hours ago.  I kind of like this mall, because there’s a lot of photography related stores and its less than 10 minutes drive from my place 🙂 Haven’t done an HDR image in a while, and I thought this particular image will work better in HDR. Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f7.1 |1/80 | ISO 100 (+-2EV AEB) Post process: Aligned and merged […]

365 Project : Day 113

Taken at Dubai Marina at Sunset.  This was taken using a fisheye lens, the good thing about the fisheye is that you can get a straight horizon if you wanted to, it’s all about how you angle that lens.  I never thought I’ll use my fisheye this frequent, since a lot of people says you will only going to use it rarely, I beg to disagree;  Fisheye lens always stays in my carry around bag. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma […]

Taken from Ibn Batuta, India Court.  If you are visiting Dubai anytime soon, this mall should be in one of your list.

365 Project : Day 091

Today, I purchased a yacht!  It’s the one on the right, the one with “DP 2735”!  Isn’t she wonderful? All I can say is that… …Yeah right!  Happy April fools day everyone! Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f5.0 | 1/15 | ISO 320 Post processing: Dodged and burned Applied different curves settings on different areas Blended another brighter exposure to get some details on the foreground (DRI) Applied some noise reduction Have a nice day! /Mike

365 Project : Day 090

I have been eying this phone for quite some time now, I just couldn’t think of a good angle to shoot.  I saw this angle while picking up something from the floor on my way to the parking.  I thought I’ll give it a click… and so I did and that’s what it looks and my fisheye gave it a twist 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f4.5 | 1/60 | ISO 100 Post processing: Manually blended […]
