365 Project : Day 160

I have to admit that this was a test shot, I was trying to check if my sensor has dust on it… Forgot that I was using a fisheye =) Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f22 | 1/50 | ISO 100 Post process: Adjusted some curves settings TGIF! /Mike

365 Project : Day 139

I have a lot of sunset shots, but this is not one of them.  This was taken at sunrise, during the golden hour;  it doesn’t really last an hour, it lasted probably around 10 minutes. Gear:  Canon 7 D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f8.0 | 1/160 | ISO 100 Post process: Digital blending of 2 exposures (DRI) A little bit of dodging and burning Weekend tomorrow, woooh! /Mike

365 Project : Day 068

This is the Dragon fountain, right in front of Dragon Mart located at International City, Dubai. Lately, there’s been a lot of work in the office… I can already foresee the difficulty on my 365;  But, that’s fine, I’m looking at it as a challenge.  Time to think some new ideas for the coming days 🙂 Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Fisheye Settings: f8.0 | 3.2 secs | ISO 100 Post processing: Changed the white balance to tungsten […]

365 Project : Day 057

This is outside the balcony at home.  I just like how it looked like a “globe” 🙂 Nothing much to say here really, just playing with the new perspective provided to me by my fisheye lens. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10mm f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 20 secs | ISO 200 Post processing : I changed the temperature to make it “colder” Increased brightness and contrast Applied a little of noise reduction Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 35

On my way home, I saw that the cherry picker was on a different location and it was lowered 🙂  So I decided to give it a go!  There is something with this cherry picker… could be the color; I like blue… hmm (blanked out!) It’s getting warm in Dubai lately…  And the clouds are starting to disappear.  Anyway, my 365 continues 🙂 How I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 + tripod Settings: f9.0 | 60 secs. […]

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 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 + […]
