During a Photowalk with a college friend at Cubbon Park on a fine Sunday morning. Found small flowers lined up against the bushes and since i had a fancy to try out Macro photography with shallow depth of field this turned out to be the best moment to experiment with a 50mm lens. I totally loved the result.
This was captured when i was out with Family and relatives at an outing at Ruppis Resort near Big Banyan Tree, Bangalore off Mysore Road. Did not have a working camera back then and so used my Nokia N8 as a camera all the while at the resort.
For this particular moment i used my Samsung Galaxy S2 so i could capture and upload right away. Macro mode on default camera of S2 did a decent job, took several captures to get it right and by the time i took out my N8 for a clearer and zoomed in version, this Dragonfly flew away.
I’m still pondering over what my next artwork would be, until then here’s the second of my Typography Quotes.
I highlighted “with a flaw” because the color red is catchy and that i’m stressing on the words. Every worldly material comes with a flaw, we can only choose to disregard it and carry on with the positives it holds in itself.
Took a break from work at office, came out for a while. Clouds had this silver lining with rays of the sun escaping from the sides giving it a CloudBurst effect.
Added visual effects later with Autodesk Pixlr-O-Matic app for Android.
I have heard it is quite difficult to capture water drops with a LED flash since it does not freeze the moment like a Xenon flash does. However I wanted to capture them drops and I almost succeeded, the results were blurred beyond visibility. Used this Android app called Camera ZOOM FX, which allows one to capture instantly (of course there is a slight delay) al least it’s a bit faster than the default CM10 camera.
Here’s what I managed to capture and it did turn out pretty well. It’s similar to a Light Painting technique of photography – the stream of water acting as the light due to the refraction.
There’s a lot one can do with the phone camera, it’s all about having ideas, patience and skills to adapt to any environment. Next photo I’d love to try would be with a Xenon external flash + Android phone camera.
Hoping to capture more..!
