365 Project : Day 042

Another nail biter… 30 minutes before day 43 🙂 This idea came out of nowhere;  I wanted something simple to set up, something that can be done in 10 minutes or so.   This was done by holding the shoes and letting it fall on that green chair and while it’s on air, taking the shot and that’s how it came up.  Me and my trusty assistant made around 10 frames and this come out to my liking 🙂 And, no […]

365 Project : Day 041

I know its not November yet…. (Halloween) I’ve always been fascinated by crystal balls and fortune tellers…  I have always thought that my Gary Fong diffuser was useless until now, I don’t like it so much as a light modifier but it’s a good crystal ball I guess 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 Settings: f9.0 | 1/200 | ISO 100 Strobist info: 430exii + gary fong diffuser + mint green gel @ 1/64 @105mm; used as a crystal […]

365 Project : Day 039

They say 365 Project is about taking risks, I’ve read that a couple of times somewhere…  And I think, that’s 100% correct.  If I shoot landscape and architecture shots all the time, I am completely negating the purpose of the 365 project, which is about learning, discovery and creativity.  I need to step away of my comfort zone and try something new.  This is me taking another risk.  Well, I have been most of the time, since I started this […]

365 Project : Day 038

Today my concept was movie time 🙂  Another last minute shoot…  I didn’t know how this idea came to me but somehow it did.  That’s pretty much it for today… Gotta get me some rest now 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + 50mm f1.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/200 | ISO 100 Strobist info: 580exii + shoot through umbrella @ 1/16 Trigger: 7D built in Transmitter Post processing: Cropped Adjusted contrast and vibrance Applied a little sharpening on some areas and selected noise […]

365 Project : Day 037

I have always played with this setup in my head; I had a lot of other versions… Probably I will have to explore those some other day.  But today, this is the one I wanted to share.   I wanted to take this picture with the sun up at the window but when I set up my equipments and started doing some test shots, it was too late.  Anyway, I think without the ambient light will do just fine for this […]

365 Project : Day 036

Today, nothing fancy…  These are water meters.  I found them right in front my apartment’s door.  It looks very interesting but, somehow with the lighting available, it looks a little flat, that’s why I popped my 2 speedlites, put blue gels on both of them and took some frames.  This particular frame is the one I like best. Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 Settings: f6.3 | 1/30 | ISO 200 Strobist info: 430EXII + blue gel @ 1/16 580EXII […]

365 Project : Day 34

Today was the toughest day so far… just nothing coming out.  No ideas, no nothing.    It’s 1 hour left before day 35 starts… Then this idea kicked in.  Saved by the bell 🙂 This is my Tokina 11-16 f2.8 lens, so far this is what I carry everyday with my 7D (and my 50mm f1.8mm).   This is the first time I introduced a new element on my photo… smoke 🙂  And no, this is not cigarette smoke, simply because I […]

365 Project : Day 033

This is my brother’s guitar 🙂  I always wanted to shoot this but I just can’t visualize it, a few minutes ago, the vision came… and it looks a lot like that 🙂 I received a lot of encouraging messages from my flickr acount and here on my blog; I really really appreciate those who dropped by and sent me a message to give out their support, that means a lot to me, I just wanted to thank you all!  […]

365 Project : Day 032

Today was one of those days again… crunch time 🙂  Scratching my head ’till 10pm until this idea came up, wanted to give credit to my assistant for chirping a few ideas here and there and for holding the water source (the shower) for me.  Indeed a great help.  Would have been difficult to do this on my own. I have something different on my head but this came out pretty interesting so I guess I’m going with it 😀 […]

365 Project : Day 031

They say, everything has a face if you stare at it long enough.  Well in this case, you don’t have to stare too long to notice the faces on the matches as they burned. Finally!  I have finished one month of my 365 🙂  I took a picture every single day for the entire month… I’m giving my self a pat at the back 🙂   So far I am really happy with all the images I took for this month.  […]
