365 Project : Day 053

I tried smoke photography tonight… And yes, it’s quite fun.  I was not able to take a lot of shots since my 1 year old niece is hanging around and trying to get my camera 🙂  Anyway, this is something I would want to try again, you can get some amazing results with very minimal efforts. The setup requires a small table lamp, a black background, incense and a speedlite. Gear: Canon 7D + Tamron 18-270mm VC Setting: f6.3 | […]

Take care everyone! /Mike

365 Project : Day 048

Today, there are some Indian dancers performing near our office building.  Just couldn’t resist to click 🙂  The colors of their outfits need to be captured. As you can see, this is just a casual snap, available light during  its worst time at 1pm, so harsh lights everywhere.  I used spot metering to expose their skin tone properly. Gear:  Canon 7D + Tamron 18-270mm VC Settings: f8.0 | 1/500 | ISO 500 @270mm Post process: I did a 16:9 crop […]

365 Project : Day 033

This is my brother’s guitar 🙂  I always wanted to shoot this but I just can’t visualize it, a few minutes ago, the vision came… and it looks a lot like that 🙂 I received a lot of encouraging messages from my flickr acount and here on my blog; I really really appreciate those who dropped by and sent me a message to give out their support, that means a lot to me, I just wanted to thank you all!  […]

Dubai Marina in HDR

This was the same day I took the Dubai Marina picture I posted before.  Taken during sunset. Dubai Marina is a great place to shoot, a lot of interesting subjects and not a lot of security guards that freaks out everytime they see a tripod. Here is how I took this shot: Settings: f6.4 | 1/25 | -3,0,+3 AEB Gears: Canon 7D + Tamron 18-270mm VC Post processing: Stacked and aligned from Photomatix Digital blending in Photoshop, resized and watermarked.
