365 Project : Day 116

Using my ever dependable point & shoot cam the LX3;  I placed it right under the Bamboos and set the dial for the High Dynamic scene more (or the built in HDR mode);  No more multiple exposures or tonemapping,  it’s all taken care of by the camera 🙂  A few people looked weird at me while doing this shot, but I couldn’t care less 😛 Gear:  Lumix LX3 Settings: f4.0 | 1/500 | ISO 400 (High Dynamic Art Scene mode) […]

365 Project : Day 090

I have been eying this phone for quite some time now, I just couldn’t think of a good angle to shoot.  I saw this angle while picking up something from the floor on my way to the parking.  I thought I’ll give it a click… and so I did and that’s what it looks and my fisheye gave it a twist 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f4.5 | 1/60 | ISO 100 Post processing: Manually blended […]

365 Project : Day 060

This is our office building in Dubai Internet City.  It’s a cool looking building if you ask me 🙂 The weatherman predicted rains the entire week, although it didn’t rain till now but, maybe later.  Sky is gray and cloudy, it does really looks like it’s going to rain.   I took shots of this building many times but I don’t like how it looks, until now, the fisheye lens gave me the look I was looking for 🙂 Gear: Canon […]
