Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape


“Hi Inge, colors to escape from monochrome …,” said Frizztext on his comment at my previous post, Weekly Photo Challenge (WPC): Colour.

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. 🙂

Have a great weekend ahead. 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black and White or Sepia Tones

Image


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.

Here my entry for Black and White or Sepia Tones theme:

Hope you enjoyed it. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

This week theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is Movement and here my entry for this week:

I was taking pictures of the sunset when my friends asked me to take their photograph. I moved the camera away from the sunset before it finished completely because my friends asked me to be hurry.

‘Moving’ Sunset

This picture below I took it by accident. I was new to the camera and set the exposure time for 10 seconds by mistake. I was moving at that time. Here its result:

‘Moving’ Lights

Anyway movement in photography is not always about blurring or unfocused. Movement can also be seen…

when walking…

One Picture in Different Looks

Recently I’ve been learning and playing with image editor such as Picassa and IrfanView. Obviously not much I could do with those two like in Photoshop or image software that comes along with our camera. But I still like it though. I am having fun with them.

Get inspired by my friends’ work as I’ve posted here: Original vs Image Editing, then I start to create mine. For example: Long Shadow. I converted the original picture into Black and White and applied vignette.

This time I made another experiments by applying more tools in Picassa as follows:

St. Mary The Virgin's Church

One friend of mine made a comment that he likes the picture but too many things or object in it. Also he mentioned about the lamp that ‘lost’ its top by mistake. I was unaware of that lamp when I was taking the picture until I checked it on my computer. What a blind woman I was! LOL.

Well guys! What I did is obviously a piece of cake for most people out there. One thing that my friends warn me about is not to retouch the picture too much unless it is necessary.

What do you think?
