Week Eleven 2017 – Zoom & Macro

We took the 75 – 300 mm lens for a nature test, it has interesting zoom capabilities and macro too.

We came across a few bird to illustrate the zoom.

Some leaves and fruits.

Testing on the macro were on the lens it state 1.5m/4.9ft

Week Nine 2017 – Energy Ball

When we are not taking pictures of people or event, we chase after the sun as it goes down.

We prearrange a location that we will be doing this and head in slightly earlier as below:

Amazing terrain with awesome lighting.

As time goes by we experience colour change of the sky.

Then we get full colour change and work our creativity.

Foreground and background composition.

Finally editors favourite:

Would you like to join us one time for the full experience comment or email us..

Week Four 2017 – Shadows

A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light.

We have been working on a few learning techniques in learning photography.

This week our focus was on shadows.

Some shadow-less images to test the light before the experiments.

We have 5 and/or more uses of shadows in photography below:

  • Focus
  • Revealing Form
  • Directing the Attention
  • Contrast and Drama
  • Revealing Texture

Week Two 2017 – Black and White

This week we are doing an experiment.

Most of the time we go shooting nature we know nothing of the place just an idea of what we would like our images to look like therefore not following any rule or breaking them all.

So we decide to go by the books.

First this is hitting google and you get tips like;

  1. shoot in raw (we do this always)
  2. look for contrast, pattens…
  3. pay attention to shadows lines shapes…

We took on the challenge with only one lens in hand, this is what we made…enjoy

WEEK One 2017 – Sunset

Happy new year good people.

WEEK 45 – Roses

A rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Rosaceae, or the flower it bears. There are over a hundred species and thousands of cultivars.

Some of the major uses of roses are

  • Ornamental plants
  • Cut flowers
  • Perfume
  • Food and drink
  • Medicine
  • In culture used as art and symbolism

Red
Red roses are the traditional symbol for love, romance, and will always be a way to say “I love you.” The red rose has also reflected beauty and perfection. Deep or dark red roses can reveal an unconscious beauty.

Pink
Words like admiration, gentleness, grace, gladness, joy and sweetness are just a few ways to describe the meaning behind the pink rose. A pink rose can also convey happiness, gracefulness and admiration.

Yellow
Bright, cheerful and joyful are what come to mind when thinking of a yellow rose. Yellow roses create warm feelings and provide happiness. Giving yellow roses can tell someone the joy they bring you and the friendship you share.

White
White roses, the purist of colors, represent innocence, purity and charm. White roses are traditionally used in weddings and can represent new beginnings. We believe that white roses can also express remembrance and innocence.

Orange
Orange roses evoke energy, and can indicate enthusiasm, desire and excitement. Giving orange roses can symbolize your passionate romance and share your excitement of the relationship with your loved one.

Lavender
Love at first sight or just an enchanting way to say, “I love you!” Lavender roses can offer a daily reminder of your love and eagerness to grow your relationship.

Salmon
A slightly pinker shade of orange, the meaning behind salmon-colored roses evoke the same message as orange roses. Salmon roses can indicate enthusiasm, desire and excitement. Give salmon roses as a way to share your desire for someone; and they’ll know how you truly feel.

Peach
Are you grateful for someone or just want to show your appreciation? Then consider giving a peach-colored rose. A bouquet of peach roses shows your deep appreciation and gratitude or just an elegant way to say “Thank You!”

Cream
Cream roses are indicative of charm and thoughtfulness. They go well with pink “thank you” roses which allow you to send two messages in one bunch!

Green
Green is the color of life, abundant growth, and constant renewal of life and energy. The green rose signifies the constant rejuvenation of spirit, and is therefore a messenger of cheerfulness.

Sometimes the numbers say everything…

  • A single rose of any color depicts the utmost devotion or a way to say “thank you”
  • Two roses entwined together communicate “marry me” (a red and white rose entwined means unity)
  • Six Roses signify a need to be loved or cherished
  • Eleven roses assure the recipient they are truly and deeply loved
  • Thirteen roses indicate a secret admire

WEEK 40 – waiting on the Sun

161013-0002

This one evening as we were working on a different project the sun decided to enlighten our evening.

Nerd section:

The energy created by the Sun’s core is nuclear fusion. This huge amount of energy is produced when four hydrogen nuclei are combined into one helium nucleus.

The Sun is traveling at 220 km per second. It is around 24,000-26,000 light-years from the galactic centre and it takes the Sun approximately 225-250 million years to complete one orbit of the centre of the Milky Way.

It takes eight minutes for light reach Earth from the Sun. The average distance from the Sun to the Earth is about 150 million km. Light travels at 300,000 km per second so dividing one by the other gives you 500 seconds – eight minutes and twenty seconds. This energy can reach Earth in mere minutes, but it takes millions of years to travel from the Sun’s core to its surface.

The Sun rotates more quickly at its equator than it does close to its poles. This is known as differential rotation.

The atmosphere of the Sun is composed of three layers: the photosphere, the chromosphere, and the corona.

Now you know enjoy the rest of the images in sequence.
