The New Year has begun...and so has my need to do something...

The New Year has did when January 1st came...but, I felt it really has just begun. I actually am excited about this year since I've so many plans that I sincerely wish I would be able to accomplish very soon. I plan to do a couple of things like: 1.) buy a new 18-200mm lens kits for my NIKON D40, 2.) get a condo unit, 3.) get a compact car and 4.) pay off all my credit card debts (I used it to buy an ACER ASPIRE 4530 LAPTOP, my NIKON D40 and a new suit). My mind's set and my… Continue

Welcoming 2009

Sorry for the inactivity. I haven't had anything good to post. ^__^;

Earlier we celebrated the New Year even though the weather was not that pleasant (it was raining at the time).

But it didn't stop us from lighting fireworks as midnight grew near.

Happy New Year! I always wanted to try the slow shutter speed hence which resulted here.… Continue

Santa was generous this year

I have figured that I must be one really good girl. Last year for Christmas, Santa brought me my first DSLR, a Canon EOS 40D which came with a kit lens, a 17-85mm IS USM lens. Not too shabby I say!

In the course of a year I have become even more addicted to photography, focusing on trying to understand the technical aspect of the art (but no closer to understanding). I also acquired 2 other lenses and a couple filters, lens hood and Photoshop CS3 among other lesser photo editing… Continue

DIY Projects

12/31/2008, 1:37 a.m......A man sits hunkered into a half kneeling, half crouching position on the floor....

The arduous task of cutting and tearing seemed to go on for hours without end. The smooth back of the razor sharp blade pressing unforgivingly into the calloused flesh of his finger had spawned the arrival of several squishy red blisters.

Wondering if suffering through the means was really worth the end result, he reached over and unwound the cord. Stretching… Continue

Happy New Year 2009!

Happy New Year everybody! I'm very ecstatic about the fact that with the new year, I was able to find a great Photographer's site. Throughout the year I've searched and searched for one, but with my hectic schedule at work, I just couldn't find the free time to do so. The holidays gave me an opportunity to google and find the site I actually felt at home with.

Here's to hoping that everybody gets to see the beauty of the world we live in this 2009! Cheers!

Man Runs from Polar Bear

A life and death game of hide and seek...

There are few things more enjoyable on a freezing day than a vigorous game of tag followed by a hearty meal.

Unless you're supposed to be the main course, that is.

These pictures show how close one man came to being a polar bear's dinner.

Mmmm, looks like dinner time: The bear stands on its haunches and peers over the car roof at his prey, a surveyor returning to his vehicle in the Alaskan town of… Continue

DCAMs have given u the best facility of minimal loss in image quality......and that is shooting in RAW......i do know that still many people prefer to shoot in JPEG, rather then reprocessing the image from RAW and then posting to site converting into JPEG format........However, when u shoot an image, the captured data is processed by the camera and then save as an image file. There is a certain amount of data that is lost during processing. ...If u choose to use the RAW format, the original RAW… Continue

Photographs of the Year 2008 ---== Worth to See==---

2008 has been an eventful year to say the least - it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I've done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs. It's not the story of 2008, it's certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months. This is a multi-entry story, Photographs over days.…

ISO Questions

I took several shots today in fairly bad lighting conditions. I wanted to avoid using the flash because I don't like the way the pic looks with the flash. Anyways, the pictures came out extremely grainy. The photo specs are Shutter: 1/8, Aperture 4.0 and ISO 400. Can someone tell me what went wrong here? I shot these pics without a tripod so is it that the shutter speed was too slow to do it by hand? If this is the case what about the pics that came our clear but still pixelated with a shutter… Continue
