365 Project : Day 015

How come when you purchase using your credit card, you feel like you didn’t spend at all…  Until the bill arrives of course.  Then you faint. Sometimes I wish I could throw my credit cards and never use them ever again.  This thought was the inspiration of this picture.  Anyway, we got to do what we got to do… How I took it: Gear: Lumix LX3 Settings: f2.0 | 1/5 | ISO400 | Dynamic Scene Mode | Square format 1:1 […]

365 Project : Day 014

Ideas… crazy it may be, sometimes we should just give it a try. This is our brand new gas range.  The oven is yet to be used, so before it gets greasy in there, I decided to put my LX3 to the grilling pit :).  Now we know how it looked like inside an oven, oh man… poor chicken. Anyway, it’s weekend! If you want to get crazy, this is it! How I took it : Gear: Lumix LX3, I […]

365 Project : Day 013

To think that this is all desert before…  it’s quite nice here now. I like to shoot as much as I can with this place because in less than 2 months from now, our office will be relocated in the middle of nowhere.  That place will have a lot of sand, dust and nothingness.  Wow, I’m so excited!  So, here I am trying to capture the place where I have been working for 6 years.  I never appreciated its beauty […]

365 Project : Day 012

This is me while having lunch… Sitting on a bench in front of the lake.  Today I had a subway veggie delight 🙂  Weather is really good lately in Dubai.   Very relaxing and calming… Anyway, decided to put the LX3 on the ground and take a shot; this is probably an ant’s perspective… or any insect on the ground for that matter 😀 How I took it?  Here you go: Gear: Lumix LX3 Settings: f4.0 | 1/640 | Dynamic Scene […]

Project 365 : Day 010

Today our company hosted a karting event for employees.  I enjoyed it a lot! This is me with my grudged helmet & racing suit (it’s quite smelly and itchy) but who cares! karting is cool! I took literally 3 shots and 2 of them are blurred… Luckily I decided to take a “stig” shot 🙂 How I took it: Gear: Lumix LX3 Settings : f2.0 | 0.5 | ISO 400 | Dynamic Scene Mode Post processing: A little dodge & […]

365 Project : Day 009

Setting up the lights was the easiest part on this photo shoot… Arrangement was the hard part!  Anyway, I’m quite happy with the result 😀 These are my 3 lenses (out of 4): Tamron 18-270mm VC (left), Sigma 10-20mm (center), Canon EF 100mm f2.8 (right) Strobist Info: 580EXII + shoot through umbrella on the top 430EXII + blue gel on the bottom Triggered by Canon 7D built in wireless flash transmitter Strobes are set to manual mode Gear: Canon 7D […]

365 Project : Day 008

This has been my best friend lately… My daily companion for my 365 Project!  My Lumix LX3 together with its friends, Sandisk Ultra II 8GB SD Card and Gorillapod 🙂 I decided to do some product shoot today and since I have been shooting lately with my point and shoot camera for my 365 Project, I decided to give it some sort of a tribute.  Anyway, some “strobist” practice won’t be bad!  I would love to do more product shoots […]

Project 365 : Day 007

Today is just busy.  Got too much going on at work.  I have to prepare for a presentation that is due on Monday and I have zero. Anyway, that’s no excuse not to take a photo.  This is a flyover near work.  I like the leading lines on this image 🙂 So that is 1 week done!  It’s true, time really flies. How I took this shot: Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20 + Tripod Settings: f/9 | 10 secs. […]

365 Project : Day 006

As much as I hate to see my face on pictures…  Sometimes we have to let creativity do its thing 🙂 (blame creativity!). This is me driving to work…  This is actually a Top Gear inspired angle 😀  A different perspective. Actually, this was taken on my way to the parking (hoping that I’ll get a good spot!). Gear: Lumix LX3 Settings: f2.0 | 1/320 | RAW file Post processing: Adjusted levels in Photoshop CS4 Little dodging and burning and […]

365 Project : Day 005

I had a lot of office work today 🙁   Speaking of work, this is our office building.  I have been going in and out of of this building for almost 6 years.  And this is the first time I took a real picture of it. Anyway, nothing fancy today…  What I like about this is the mixture of the blue lights on the floor and the red cast courtesy of the break lights of the car on the left. Taken […]
