Hmmm…that is a great idea to join this week theme of WPC: Escape! But I decided to chose monochrome to escape from colours.
So here my entry for this week theme:
Bear it in mind that I am in a learning process to understand about B&W photos. I’ll be back with another post of what I’ve learned so far. So any feedback or constructive comments are welcome. Thank you in advance.
This is my very first time joining Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The reason why I join it for this week theme is because I’m currently forcing myself to shooting in Black and White photos as I’ve mentioned it on my early post here: Ongoing Project.
To me shooting in B&W mode is more complicated than the colour one.
I took those pictures of roses yesterday before sunset in a cloudy weather. I used Tamron AF 70-300mm and set my white balance for a cloudy one and played with its temperature colours to see the difference that it could made by.
I didn’t know how to set the temperature colours on my camera until one of very best friends of mine, Campanulla Della Anna, mentioned it in our discussions about photogaphy and also by reading this one of good articles: Understanding White Balance by Cambridge in Colour.
The picture in the middle is a RAW file and I edited it with Picassa by tuning its shadows and fill light up.
Do you like my experiments or would you like to give me any suggestions to improve my photography skills? Your comment will be much appreciated!
Two days ago I was walking down to a canal for a walk and taking some pictures. As I walked down by I saw a lot of rubbish on the canal like these two photos below:
That is totally wrong, isn’t it?
While I was busy observing for interesting object or scene to photograph on my way back home I saw some branches with the flowers and leaves that looked good to be photographed with the sky as a background. Without thinking or checking the setting on my camera, I just pointed it straight away to the scene and here the result:
Later I found that the setting on my camera at the time caused my photos overexposure on the result.
Last Sunday I and five friends of mine were going to The National White Water Centre for rafting. The centre is located on the River Tryweryn in Snowdonia, Wales. We were doing rafting for about two hours and it CREATED so much fun and excitement! We enjoyed it so much and we had a good laugh together. That’s the first one.
Rafting with friends
The second one is the photo of my solar powered lanterns that I just bought last weekend and put them on my back garden. The colour of the lights keep changing and it’s really nice to watch it. I shot it from my first floor. Obviously I didn’t create those lanterns. By putting them on my back garden then it is a part of my CREATION to decorate for, LOL.
The final one is about the nature. Who does CREATE the nature? Whoever the Master behind the nature, I always admire it! Every time I admire them I always remember How Great Thou Art‘s song.
Apiaceae, known as carrot or parsley family, with an insect
A lost sheep?
That’s all! Hope everybody enjoys my entry for this week.
Few days ago my new online friend, pinay e-motion, has left me a comment on my post here says:
Hi, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I think your post is great. You have impressed me not only in your ability to discuss different interesting topics in your blogs, but have also captivated me in your ability to capture different great images through your genius manipulation of the lens. I hope you’ll consider accepting it and the acceptance rule: Versatile Blogger Award.
Have a nice day!
Oh wow! She’s really surprising me since we’ve just met online less than a month until now. We had a little chat when we met first time and apparently she could speak Indonesian, my mother language, though she’s from Philippine! How nice is that?! So we ended up ‘speaking’ (or I should say writing) in Indonesian and her writing is very good!
Now it is my turn to nominate 15 bloggers as a part of the rule. I would like to nominate those who have given me lots of inspiration for what they have been doing in their works and for having shared their great experience in their life. Also this nomination would go to those who have supported and encouraged me so I’ve been enjoying so much blogging here.
I would like to thank you in advance for giving time to visit and have a look their blogs.
Finally here seven things about myself:
I love simplicity
I have an interest in learning philosophy
I have passions in photography, baking and cooking, and like to listen to the music
I love nature and doing outdoor activities
I like to meet new people
I am an outgoing person
I like people who have sense of humour since I am quite a humorous person as well
I dedicated this post for all my followers as well as I’ve reached a hundred followers until now. Many thanks to all of you!
I hope that my nominee-bloggers would like to pass this award to other bloggers and follow the VBA rules as follows:
You must give credit to the person that has nominated you and create a link to their blog in your post.
You must create a list of 15 blogs that you enjoy most and link to those as well. Then you must go and tell them you have nominated them. That means if you do not have 15, you cannot do this step. If you do not complete this step, then you cannot claim this award.
Finally, you must create a list of seven things about yourself.
