Dread

I’m not sure this fits the Ambiance photography challenge (at least not based on an immediate interpretation) but I was posting these photos anyways.

These are two very old small houses in my town that are associated with ghost stories. I used to hear a lot of scary stuff about them. Well, they’re just stories.

As soon as I finished processing them, the first word that came to mind is dread and so I called them that.

It would be great if I can shoot them again at night. The place is really isolated and I admit it’s super creepy so not doing that any time soon!

A Feast (of sorts)

Daily Prompt: Feast, huh.

Naturally, when hearing the word ‘feast’ I immediately think about food. I love food. but unfortunately right now I’m feasting on different kinds of sustenance:

Photography books/magazines and Anime.

I’m trying to learn more about photography. I believe that practicing and learning from one’s own experiences is the way to do it. But not without getting down the basics and you can only do that by studying. That’s why I’m reading photography books and magazines. I started with Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson and Langford’s Starting Photography by Michael Langford & Philip Andrews. 

I also quench my thirst for anime. I usually focus on a genre for a period of time. These days I’m watching sports anime specifically, Over Drive and Giant Killing. I’m planning to watch Hungry Heart: Wild Striker and Majors afterwards.

This post is not going to end without pictures! Here’s another batch of recycled picture mesh. Not as good as the first ones. I have no idea what kind of pictures I’ll end up with when I start Photoshop. I just keep changing things and experimenting until I think it’s enough. I wanted to work and add more on these but I got tired. >_<

 

Pictures: Recycled: Abstract

Just fooling around with Photoshop.

I take a lot of meaningless pictures while practicing photography or just being bored. Instead of them collecting digital dust or getting erased (which I never do), I thought why not take those shots and merge them into abstract-like pictures.

I’m not a pro at Photoshop but I experimented on my own for years while trying to create my own album covers back when I used to write rap songs, only for myself though.(maybe someday I’ll share the instrumentals and lyrics but I’m not confident enough in my singing! >_< )

Anyways, I know enough of Photoshop to transform a dull and plain picture into something worth seeing.

They are few but they took me a while to finish. I hope you’ll like them.

These are the source pictures.

’til the next batch! ^_^
