All About Roses

I really love taking pictures of flowers. They are my first subjects when I started my photography adventure. Anyway, I just published an article about roses in my hubpages. I share several of my rose photos there. Do check it out. You may also leave a comment if you feel like it. You can do so even if you are not a member of hubpages.

distortion in perspective

We had a photo contest last week about churches/architecture. I did not have time to shoot any church photos so I just went through my old files and picked some old photos. Since churches are usually one of the most interesting structures in any location, I did have a few photos. I had a problem though because those photos where taken simply as souvenir shots, I did not have much control of lighting. So to jazz up the photos and give it a little bit of twist, I thought of playing around with perspective in photoshop. I just learned how to do this so I was rather eager to try it out.
The process is rather easy. Just open your picture in photoshop, duplicate your file and then go to the crop tool and select the whole photo. Then put your cursor over the corner of your photo and bring the crop arrow towards the center. You can do this with the other corner and also slide it towards the middle. Then finish the cropping action and viola ... you have changed the perspective of your photo. This is what I did to this photo I'm sharing today. However, I just used the bottom corner for the distortion. The photo came out rather interesting, don't you think so? The two photos are the before and after distortion. What do you think?

My photo did not win in the contest, but I discovered a new way of adding something interesting to a photo - distortion in perspective.

My First Real Model Shoot

I experienced my first model shoot last Saturday. I didn't realize that it would be enjoyable. I really learned a lot and now I am confident that I can wing it when another opportunity comes.

Why did I say my first real shoot? Well, I joined a model shoot before but nobody taught me anything because everybody was busy trying to get their own shots. This time however, it was different. There were professional photographers around who readily helped us (especially me!) with camera settings. Also, everything was so well-organized such that even if each of us were only given 3 minutes each to shoot a model, we were all able to take good photos. It was really fun!

So today, I am sharing one of my model shots.   Ala - 5th Element. What do you think?
