LOMO with BBQ Stove~

I feel so bad for not taking as many photo as possible. I just don't have the idea or theme! It's okay. I'll slowly increase my photo collections. :)

At first glance, we could see that the image above is totally not produced by camera. Indeed it's not. The message that I'm trying to deliver is how powerful Photoshop is! Again I put myself in contradiction with the need of post-processing of photo taken with DSLR. Don't worry if you couldn't get what I said. ;p

Scroll down for more~

Check this out! Spot the huge differences between the edited and non-edited images! Photoshop terrifies people and that's it! *shakes head*


Another attempt!

Water & Coin | Link

Bored with FB, not motivated to start FYP, having mom controlling over the remote control, and while waiting for dinner, it's photo shooting time! Hmm.. What can we shoot at night? No, I don't feel like shooting portraits. No, not going outdoor ler!


Ah ha! I have an idea! Perhaps I should try splashing fruit photography!

*Searches fridge*

Eventually there's only a banana left. But bah! I wanna chomp it later so I wont sacrifice it! It's mine! MINE!!


Lastly, no choice but to replace fruit with coin. After all the materials are gathered, tripod and backdrop are set, now let's get the party started~! Woohoo~!

The photo shoot session went pretty smooth and things seemed pretty well-done. Until viewing the photos with laptop. I've got trauma after browsing through the images! Seriously! The photos are not sharp, shadows and reflections are included. Haiyo.. Chose the best photo and tried to photoshop lo. First edit turned out bad and the picture above is my Nth try. Ok la.. Can't expect more from a n00b like me. XP

In a conclusion, I still heart the outcome. Meh~!! ;p


Woot woot!

Weeeeee~ I like the new template so much! Especially the top-left photo box! I can now change the photo whenever I wish to. ;p

Here's another picture taken some time ago. Does it look the the plushies are taking self potraits by themselves? Hehe!

Speaking of photography, I've started to get confuse with the definition of "Art of Photography". A good photo should or shouldn't go through post-processing? If the photo is good enough and doesn't require further edit, indeed it saves a lot of hassles. But why not do some post processing to enhance the quality of photo?

These are not the only ideas that have been buzzing around me. In the end, I think that we should just keep things easy. I'll just shoot what I want - photos that tell stories.

Not a satisfying shot and poorly edited but I wanna share this photo with everyone. ): This shot was taken during learning process, so it shouldn't be abandoned even though it doesn't look good! Moreover, I can always refer back for improvements and laugh at how immature is my skills lo. ;p

Alright. IMO it's hard to shot something randomly without a theme but I wanna press the shutter button. Then the idea of having newly purchased skate wheels as model came across my mind. Eventually I shot few photos in JPEG and RAW. Who knows PS CS2 couldn't support RAW(.NEF). Haiyo! No choice but to leave RAW editing for next time.

In addition, I'm grateful to Bennie for teaching me PS techniques! We communicated through FB chat application as I was facing problems to add him in MSN. Yes, you heard me right. It's very very hard to learn through FB chat app because it lags so much lo! My PC hung half way liao I'm unable to complete the learning course. XD Anyway, Bennie is a good fella and I hope that I didn't disturbed him from busy tasks. XD Shall kacau him again! XP

Poyittu varen! We shall wait and see whether I'll have the mood to redo the shot later. Lazy ler.. @_@
