365 Project : Day 024

This is what I take every morning, Triple Omega 3-6-9.  As they say, health is wealth! How I took this shot: I put the fish oil capsules in a small tupperware to diffuse the light coming out of the speedlite 580exii placed on the top. Gear: Canon 7D + EF 100mm f2.8 Macro lens Settings: f13 | 1/250 , 580exii @ 1/64 power Strobist Info: Bare 580exii with the built in diffuser @ 1/64 power on top Trigger: Built-in wireless […]

365 Project : Day 023

I’ve been posting a lot of colorful stuff lately, time to tone down things a little bit 🙂 These are the Emirates Towers, which were once the beacon of Dubai.  Somehow, despite their architectural brilliance they are slowly being forgotten.  Sorry for being a little dramatic today, I just felt sad about these buildings when I was taking my shot.  Just sharing… Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/250 Post Processing: DRI’d two exposures on Photoshop […]

365 Project : Day 021

After more than a week of waiting from ebay… it finally came!  Spyder3 Pro Display Calibrator.  The concept behind this is that, I want to give a colorful background since it is after all a color calibrator, but then I wanted to have the white balance correct by making the fonts white, simply because they are in fact white. And if you are wondering where I took this shot, well, it’s inside our washing machine! Really, I’m not kidding!  Now […]

365 Project : Day 020

This is the Deira City Center Metro Station.  I took this right after I purchased my new lens 🙂  Tokina 11-16 f2.8.  This is the first photo from this lens (apart from my testing shots from the store). I haven’t been inside the Dubai Metro, I’m planning to go soon though.  It is only a few months old… Anyway, here is how I took this shot: Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Settings: f2.8 | 1/30 + 1/20 -1EV  […]

365 Project : Day 018

This is one of the most useful things in my workflow.  It was a gift from my birthday last year… oh man, that’s almost a year now… Grrr! Anyway, moving on… Here is how I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + 50mm 1.8 + 430exii + 580exii Settings: f7.1 | 1/160 | ISO 250 Strobist info: 580exii + umbrella on the left @24mm, 1/32 power 430exii + red gel @105, 1/64 power Triggered by built in Flash Transmitter of Canon […]

365 Project : Day 017

Inspiration… This is the reason why I purchased this book. Joe McNally is one of the photographers I really look up to.  He’s done it all… in other words, he’s the man! Ok, I guess I have some reading to do over the weekend 🙂 How I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + 50mm 1.8 + 580exii + 430exii Settings: f8.0 | 1/250 | ISO 400 Strobist info: 580exii + umbrella on top left 430exii + red gell zoomed at […]

365 Project : Day 016

This is Burj Khalifa, the tallest building on Earth.  Together with the world’s tallest dancing fountain. I decided to go back there and shoot the Burj at night since I’m getting a lot of hits from the day version, which can be found here. I, like many others, was surprised when it was named Burj Khalifa since everyone is already used to calling it Burj Dubai.  Anyway, it’s their building so they can name it whatever they want to.   I […]

365 Project : Day 011

I did an hour and a half presentation today at Millennium Hotel for very selected key customers.  I’m happy it turned out well 🙂  This was the terrace of the room where I did the presentation, located at the 12th floor.  Here you can see the Barsha Interchange and the Dubai Metro Station. If you look behind the towers you can see some parts of the The Palm and the Atlantis hotel.   Below is one of the oldest residence […]

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 […]
