365 Project : Day 059

This is a video card inside an oven that looks like having a techno party?!? Confused? Yeah, me too!  That is what 3 1/2 hours of traffic can do to you. Tonight’s traffic was one of the worst traffic for me in a long time…  It rained heavily and as usual, the streets are flooded… That I assume was the cause of traffic, but, on my 3 1/2 hour drive home, I didn’t see any flood ?!? Still confused? Same […]

365 Project : Day 057

This is outside the balcony at home.  I just like how it looked like a “globe” 🙂 Nothing much to say here really, just playing with the new perspective provided to me by my fisheye lens. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 20 secs | ISO 200 Post processing : I changed the temperature to make it “colder” Increased brightness and contrast Applied a little of noise reduction Cheers! /Mike

Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f4.0 | 1/20 | ISO 640 Post processing: Dodging and burning Increased vibrance and saturation Applied sharpening & noise reduction Happy weekend! /Mike

365 Project : Day 055

This was taken on my way home.  I was able to take this shot because the traffic was moving extremely slow… Again, using my new lens Sigma 10mm f2.8 fisheye on this shot.  I thought my UWA was wide enough… Fisheye gives you a totally different perspective, it is like having a new vision of the things around you… It is really a FUN lens, no question about that. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f4.0 | 1/5 […]

365 Project : Day 054

I got a new addition to my family of lenses.  Sigma 10mm f2.8 Fisheye lens 🙂 I missed shooting architectural subjects and I confess, I miss HDR.  I haven’t done HDR for almost 2 months now.  I just wanted to check if I still have the skills to create one.  Alright, back to regular programming, this is one of the malls here in Dubai, named Dubai Festival City.  Almost all the malls here are now on promotions because of Dubai […]
