365 Project : Day 159

This is pretty much what I carry everyday.  I got this new crumpler bag named: “Little Stevie” to carry my iPad 3G+Wifi 64G, Lumix LX3, my Canon 7D with a wide angle lens (either Tokina 11-16 f2.8 or my fisheye 10mm f2.8), 50mm f1.8, cleaning cloth, blower, card reader, extra battery, extra CF cards and a LED flash light. I am starting to see the benefits of iPad in terms of photography; I think as soon as the Operating System […]

365 Project : Day 142

This is my nice Chloe, she’s almost two years old a week from now.  We went to Al Hamra Resort in Ras Al Khaimah, I used my point & shoot Lumix LX3 with underwater casing for this shot.  It’s cool to capture HD videos of underwater too 🙂 Gear:  Lumix LX3 Settings: f2.0 | 1/2000 | ISO 80 Post processing: Adjusted contrast Added vignette Dodging and burning Weekend ends today… 🙁  Looking forward for the next 🙂 /Mike

365 Project : Day 117

Taken somewhere at the Hatta desert.  It’s sad that a lot of people just don’t care and pollute places like this, leaving their trash behind…  Captured using my point and shoot camera, LX3. Gear:  Lumix LX3 Settings: f2.0 | 1/2000 | ISO 80 Post process: Made the image darker using curves Enhanced the sky to have a dramatic look Dodging and burning Cheers! /Mike

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 078

Taken with my point and shoot camera, Lumix LX3.  I haven’t used  this cam for quite a while now, but, whenever I needed its service, it never let me down 🙂 Taken around 3am today, after partying at The Rooftop Bar at Madinat Jumeirah.  On this picture it is on the left side, on the roof top of the closed bar called Trilogy.  Took this on the way to the parking area which is across the road. Gear: Lumix LX3 […]

365 Project : Day 067

“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential” – Winston Churchill Nothing much to say,  just sharing a quote from Mr. Churchill. Oh, and by the way, I missed shooting with my point & shoot cam, lumix lx3, so I decided to use it for today’s shoot. Gear: Lumix LX3 + 580exii Settings: f4.0 | 1/160 | ISO 80 Strobist: 580exii + LumiQuest Sofbox III @ 1/32 power on camera left Trigger: Phottix […]

365 Project : Day 022

I confess, this was a last minute shot.  It’s weekend here and this idea just came out of no where.   So, I got my speedlite 580exii and attached the Lumiquest softbox III, slid the wireless phottix transceiver on to the flash and popped my trusty lumix LX3 together with the phottix transmitter.  Went straight to the sink and with an improvised background and there you go! Day 22! Here’s the rest of the technical yada yada.. Gear: Lumix LX3 + […]

Project 365 : Day 019

This is the food court in our building (at work).  It’s been six years that I have been in this building and they have renovated this 3 times — it always looks good.  I really am going to miss this place once we moved out.  This is how it looks at around 5:30pm, it’s almost empty. For some strange reason this picture reminds me of Christmas, maybe the colors? The lights that look like xmas lights? Hmmm could also be […]
