Still Life?

Filed under: Portrait, Still Life — Tags: , , , , — soulperk @ 11:42 pm

I know it is a bit late but Happy Ramadhan to all. Oh well, fasting month, too lazy to do some random photoshoot outside, so I try to shoot inside hehe.. and the theme today is ‘still life’ but I am not sure.. may be it is a ‘portrait’ of an action figure hehe.. anyway I don’t have many subject to shoot because my son lost all his Lego Star Wars Characters and all he can find are the Ironman and a broken unknown winged blue superhero. So I had no choice but to shoot the Ironman.

I don’t have (m)any lighting gears, and zero knowledge about shooting still life and lighting setup, so the setup I have done here was just using 1 LED torchlight and a ‘kurma kurnia’ container as a stand hehe..

Here are the results…

Lighting from the side

Here the lighting is a bit harsh so I turn it into monochrome and i kinda like it…

ironman

I did a focus stacking on this one, because the hand are out of focus so I took two pics and stacked it.
this is the scene when Ironman says “ui.. ui.. apa liat-liat.. ku tembak kang.. banaaa.. banaaa.. nie..”

iron 001

Same pic as above, but turn to monochrome, just want to see the effect hehe…

ironman2 8

With some heavy arsenal… looks “taiming” lolz

My verdict: The shooting process is fun and very interesting, but I really need to learn the technique especially the lighting… banaaa..

Nightscape Shooting

Filed under: Landscape, Street — Tags: , , , , — soulperk @ 2:02 pm

Jame Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque from above. I don’t really know the right setting to shoot at night so I just shoot with trial and error setting.. play with exposure and aperture then let the camera do it’s thing. Hope this is how it is suppose to look.. but hey, I like it.. so..😉 chill…

Water Droplets

Filed under: Macro — Tags: , — soulperk @ 8:00 pm

Last post of My Friday Excursion, actually last Friday I shoot near my brother’s house. It was a fun outing because I manage to take so many insects, but the downside was that I had to endured sooo many mosquito bites… Anyway, even though my main objective to go there to shoot insects, I just couldn’t resist to shoot few beautiful droplets.

Third group from my Friday Morning Macro series, the last group will be up tomorrow…

lumapas 8

Above: such a small wings for a big and fast insect. This bee keep buzzing around me, before finally landed exactly where I expect it to land but only for a brief moment before it buzz away. So I cannot really focus on it properly but at least I got it.

Above: We Bruneian call this “Kasisang”, In english I only know it as Stinky bug as it will produce pungent smell as a defensive mechanism.

Night Macro at Tasek Lama

Filed under: Insect/Life, Macro — Tags: , , , , , , — soulperk @ 8:33 pm

My first night macro. It is quite challenging because I need my friend to hold the torch light so that I can focus on the insects. Spotting an insect in the dark was difficult, I only manage to spot 4 or 5 but only manage to shoot 3. It really was a great experience.

night 1

This is the 2nd time I saw this kind of grasshopper

 night 2

A moth.

 night 3

6 legged spider. Click the image above to see larger pic and look at it’s somewhat scary eyes, and those hairs…

Focus Stacking

Filed under: Insect/Life, Macro — Tags: , , , , , — soulperk @ 11:33 pm

One of the challenges in doing macro shooting is dealing with very thin Depth of Focus (DOF), resulting some part of your object turn to be out of focus. One technique to eliminate this problem is by focus stacking. You can read more about focus stacking from this website. Anyway, here is my first attempt to do a focus stacking, I took a total of 8 pictures just to create this one image.

Above: As you can see, almost all parts of the insect body are in focus. (ALMOST hehe..),
Anyway, got to try this again… and properly this time.🙂 …still learning…

Below: Here is one of the original picture I use to create the above image. (Just for comparison),
Not all of the parts are in focus, especially the hind legs & tail.
