This fishes are one of the sought after decorative fishes. They are often in pools in gardens but a few have them in aquariums.
This was a shot I took when I was still in Guam. One of the hotels has this amazing pond setup just outside of the restaurant in the hotel. After a great lunch, you can stroll and see these creatures as they swim around from one pool to another and from time to time raise up to either eat something above the water or I think catch some air.
I raised my hat to all those who do post processing work on photos. At times people criticize your work that it is overly done or not so professional and the like. My post processing arsenal is only made of Lightroom 3.6 and free software Paint.net. I just did a single photo to clean out the rest of the background and really it takes time and effort just to have it really nice and done before making another use of the image.
Check out one of my self-portrait photo which I did post process first before doing some other photo editing tricks.
Image compositing is the technique where two or more photos or layers are put together to create a single image.
This is usually done to put a different background on a person’s profile or whole body picture but making sure that as if it is a single image. Besides that it is also use usually in magazines and advertising where text are included as if partial of it are at the back of the person in the image.
I was doing a portrait session with my co-workers for our company’s website. We had a little fun shot shots session and I did some photos as composites in magazine covers. If you think this is cool please let me know by leaving your thoughts or ideas in the comment box at the end of this post.
Had a week long vacation a few weeks ago. I visited my mom and our home back in the province. Bad weather has prevented me in going out further to take some pictures of the old place I once live.
Though not much change, I can see that our place is little by little in a way aging. The kittens I once photographed are now full grown cats and I spotted one of them lazily spending the afternoon in the grasses.
Every photographer have that point in their passion or art that what they have in creating that art or passion is not enough.
I needed a few tools to go above the current level. These tools should enhance or make it efficient. For a photographer, having that means to control the light is a must, thus additional tools like flash, strobe, and sets of light modifiers are needed. As for myself, especially now that I am going towards going pro with this passion, I needed to learn more about light modifiers. Gears are costly. I am just a hobbyist and yet my calculated fee just to recover my equipments’ tools are way above the basic fees charged by freelance photographers you can find online. Good thing I chanced upon an online photography store that nearly have the price of the tools I need half as to those well established stores.
Below are some of the tools I got myself at a bargain and in the next weeks I will be testing them and learn them how to use well to help me achieve better photos and hoping that it would justify the deal price I offered.
Visited Miao Cat Cafe this Sunday and we were informed that our reservation was moved to 12 noon due to some taping/photo shoot at the cafe with Anne Curtis. It so happens that she is a cat lover as well.
Miao Cat Cafe is this new cafe in Quezon City just at the intersection of Mindanao Avenue and Congressional Avenue. If you happen to be in Trinoma just take a ride in Mindanao Avenue and get off at Congressional Avenue. A few walks and you get to the Cakes to Go store and there is a narrow stairs going to the second floor for the cafe itself.
