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.


Water Splash captured on the #SGS2 with #CameraZoomFX

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..!

a Praying Mantis posing

It’s been a while since i posted something in here, i’m back for good now. Here’s something that visited my home, while i was watching tv comfortably on the couch – ‘Praying Mantis‘. I was in some luck that the Mantis posed for a lot of photographs for my Nokia N8.

I even tried focusing with my old cybershot camera, but i guess i was very accustomed with using the Nokia N8 over a point & shoot camera. This was the moment, i wished that i had a DSLR camera with a Macro Lens.
