Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

Image


This is part of my experiment which I got inspired from here, Early Christmas by Sue Richardson.

I’ve tried many different shots outdoor and indoor following her technique and so far this is the best that I could get from.

Could you guess what they are? :D.

Axis Mundi

Axis Mundi

They are some tealights that I arranged in circular form. I did some editing in Picassa from its RAW file by increasing its shadow and applied filtered BW plus soft focus. The grainy that looks apparent in this photo after I increased its shadow has created such a different dimension from the original objects. It looks like white sand or snowflakes fall down and creating snowballs. That’s my interpretation anyway. A friend of mine called this picture as Axis Mundi.

So for that reason I submit this picture for Weekly Photo Challenge with Delicate in theme!

Have a Good Friday and have a great weekend ahead to everybody! Christmas is just round the corner! πŸ˜‰

 

Love and Purity

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!

Special thanks to my friend Campanulladellaanna.

Have a great weekend!
