365 Project : Day 220

This particular scene interested me a lot; I was shooting portraits and I saw how these walls are torn down and how many layers of wall can bee seen through it. It’s a little difficult to put the model here but it makes a good landscape subject, so I clicked! Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Settings: f8.0 | 1/100 | ISO 100 Post process: 3 exposures blended manually using DRI Multiple curves adjustments to enhance the tones Dodging […]

365 Project : Day 163

Another one of those experimental texture blending.  I used 4 kinds of textures here and each was blended differently. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f10 | 1/125 | ISO 100 Post process: Adjusted contrast via Adobe Raw Applied 4 kind of textures using different blending modes Adjusted tonal range using curves Dodging and burning Applied a vignette Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 134

Taken from Ras Al Khaimah, this looks to be an old butcher house.  The place is quite smelly so I had to shoot as fast as I can without breathing…  the joy of photography 🙂 Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f9.0 | 1/15 | ISO 200 Post process: Blended 2 exposures using DRI technique Dodging and burning Adjusted hue and saturation Added vignette Have a nice weekend 🙂 /Mike

365 Project : Day 093

What more can I say, I just love this location.  It’s just full of stories and full of scenery that captures my imagination.   It’s hard to explain… Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f9.0 | 1/80 | ISO 100 Post processing: Enhanced the sky to get more cloud textures Dodging and burning Adjusted color tones using curves Applied some sharpening and noise reduction Cheers! /Mike

365 Project : Day 087

Again, taken from Ras Al Khaimah.  I wish I knew what this structure is, I really have no idea.  All I know is that looking at it makes you think and forces you to create your own story behind it. Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings:  f8.0 | 1/40 | ISO 100 Post processing: Enhanced the sky to give a more dramatic feel Dodging and burning Applied selective color balance Adjusted contrast using blending modes Happy shooting! /Mike

365 Project : Day 079

I wanted to portray how “cold” the place was, I am not referring to the temperature, I am referring to the ‘feel’ that this place gave me.  Nobody lives in this part of Ras Al Khaimah anymore, I don’t exactly know what happened here… I like how the light shines from the sky, it gives me a feeling of hope for this place. OK, enough drama.  Need to hit the bed now 🙂 Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: […]
