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.  […]

365 Project : Day 030

This shot was taken at Ibn Batuta Mall a few hours ago, it belongs to Egypt Court.  I really find it interesting how this place was made, it is like a museum and a mall at the same time.  That is pretty much it for me today, need to rest and prepare for work tomorrow. Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 Settings: f5.0 | 1/20 | ISO 400 Post processing: Dodging and burning Adjusted contrast and applied sharpening Applied noise […]

365 Project : Day 029

I am posting this right now from Golden Tulip Beach Resort here in Abu Dhabi.  I found this just right beside the hotel, the houses on the left are for the employees of the hotel and about the yachts… that one I don’t have any idea.  It was pretty dark here so I was forced to shoot this at ISO 200. It’s a nice hotel, it is quite cozy in here.  Nonetheless a great place to relax and unwind, far […]

365 Project : Day 028

So there I was, again being lazy… Looking around the house for something that might be interesting to shoot, then 9:30pm comes, and I still got nothing.  I have no choice but to force myself to go down and find something  to shoot outside.  I looked up in the sky and I saw clouds! Now I know that a long exposure shot would be really cool! I just have to find an interesting subject, it only took a few steps […]

365 Project : Day 027

I took this on my way home.  I figured that the clouds were there! I mean, here in Dubai we don’t get clouds, but today… They are everywhere! Not really very technical photo as you can see…  Anyways, here’s how I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 Settings: f9.0 | 1/40 | ISO100 Post processing: Adjusted contrast and vibrance Dodging and burning Sharpened and some noise reduction Take care y’all! /Mike

365 Project : Day 026

I literally have no photo today, I was really feeling tired after office work and wanted to stay in bed.  It was around 10pm that I decided to get my arse off and shoot something.  And here we are, this is right in front of our building’s parking.  As you can see the road is still under construction, it’s a new building.  And behold! I found my subject 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 + manfrotto tripod Settings: f8.0 […]

365 Project : Day 025

I took this around 7:00am, it has been foggy lately here in Dubai.  I have to hurry taking the shot before the sun gets too bright, so I didn’t have the chance to change my lens to a wider one, at that time it had the Canon EF 100mm f2.8 macro lens on, which made a nice tighter crop.  It a bit hazy but I like the colors of the sky. How I took this shot: Gear: Canon 7D + […]
