365 Project : Day 238

Taken from Al Aqah Fujairah. This was my first shot just before the sunrise. I like the cold and relax feel of it. Makes me want to go back in there. If it was not 2 hours away, I would like to visit this place more frequently.

365 Project : Day 237

Another one from Fujairah. The sun was already fully up a this point. I used my ND1000x BW ND filter to get the smoke effect on the water. I haven’t used this filter as much as I would want to because, I haven’t done a lot of seascapes here in Dubai. Another use for this filter would be for the clouds movement, to get them into a blur, which is not very applicable here in Dubai since clouds here are […]

365 Project : Day 236

A very rare case that I woke up early for a shoot 🙂 My photo buddy Eugene invited me to shoot in Fujairah, which is a 2-hour drive from Dubai. I have to wake up at 3:30am which is usually the time I go to sleep… Anyway, this is one of few times I can use my BW ND1000 and it’s really nice to spend time with nature. Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 f2.8 + BW ND1000 (ND110) Settings: […]

365 Project : Day 182

When I saw this picture, I really want to go in there and sit while watching the sun rise…. This was taken at Fujairah; Oh I can’t wait for my vacation!  Which is due next week!  Most probably I won’t be able to post for 2 weeks but after that, I’ll have tons of pictures to share. Gear: Canon 450D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f8.0 | 1/80 | ISO 100 Post processing: This is a single exposure shot and adjusted […]

365 Project : Day 120

There’s something about photographing nature, it makes you appreciate the planet we are living in.   Taken from Fujairah, one of the best places to relax here in the UAE. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings:  f22 | 5 secs. | ISO 100 Post processing: Adjusted exposure using different curves settings Enhanced the sky to get more drama Applied some sharpening TGIF! /Mike

365 Project : Day 108

I have been into seascapes lately, here’s another one. This particular one was taken from Fujairah, one of the seven emirates here in the UAE. Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20 + ND8 Settings: f11 | 0.4 | ISO 100 Post processing: Enhanced the sky to get a dramatic sunset Used curves to correct the exposure on certain areas Applied sharpening adjusted hue and saturation Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 101

This was taken at Fujairah, Al Aqa beach.  This is a little further away from the beach resorts on that area.  It’s really a great place to shoot, the only problem I have with this place is the distance to Dubai, it takes around 2.5 hours to drive. Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm + ND8 Filter Settings: f8.0 | 2.5 secs | ISO 100 Post processing: Adjusted curves to get details from the sky Applied sharpening since its very […]
