Photo shooting – Desert

Again desert. Only this time, it was early in the morning with the target in mind to catch the sunrise. And we did. I shot with the same equipment, Nikon D7100 with my fav 50mm 1.8. Post processing was done in Lightroom/Photoshop on a new laptop I bought from one of my friends. The laptop … Continue reading Photo shooting – Desert

Photo Shooting – Toddler

This was an old idea I had in my first "beginner in photography" days - I was thinking to shoot toddlers. Since I didn't had the opportunity (the approach was quite difficult since I didn't ha a portfolio) and also I was a newbie about photograph, I didn't do it. Until last month I was … Continue reading Photo Shooting – Toddler

Photo shooting – Al Mamzar Beach

Went out and “tested” my latest location – Al Mamzar Beach and Park. One of my Romanian friend would like to start and sell some traditional Romanians items and we agreed to go out for a photo shoot. I did about 956 photos – I used the same camera and my old lens – Nikon D7100 with … Continue reading Photo shooting – Al Mamzar Beach

Flash / post processing standards / Variations

Since in the near future I am about to shoot during night conditions and I'm required to use the built in flash option, I decided to go out and make some tests. I used the flash full blast, I used it with the lowest intensity and I even took photos with no flash during night … Continue reading Flash / post processing standards / Variations

Down-town Dubai

So I decided to take a walk around Down Town Dubai since it was a Public Holiday and the city s mostly empty. I grabbed my camera and head out to an area very close to Burj Khalifa. Again I used a Nikon D7100 with a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, with a … Continue reading Down-town Dubai

Photo shooting – Dubai Marina

I went outside recently again in Dubai Marina, trying out some new techniques. Again I used a Nikon D7100 with a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, with a hood mounted on. I only shoot in Manual Mode, mostly with Spot Metering on, in RAW format as usually, about 350 images in approximately 2h30min. … Continue reading Photo shooting – Dubai Marina

Photo shooting – Marina Bay

It was about time to go on another photo shoot. I picked a new location - nothing in common with the other ones - well maybe except for the fact that all of them are in the UAE. I was accompanied in this photo shoot by Lidia who was kind enough to walk around the … Continue reading Photo shooting – Marina Bay

Photo Shooting – Red Sands

It was a good day today – I gained a lot of experience. I shoot today in a very beautiful red desert area close to Dubai, with my Nikon D7100 with AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. I took about 320 images before I drop dead of the heat/tiredness. All of the images are … Continue reading Photo Shooting – Red Sands

Photo shooting – ghost town

For this session I brought along another spare battery for my Nikon D7100 (the battery model is  EN EL-15 Lithium Ion). Soon I will have to buy also a bigger memory card (currently the one who came with the camera is a San-disk 16 GB Micro SD HC I - 80Mb/S transfer) The photo shoot … Continue reading Photo shooting – ghost town
