This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto topic is Stairs, Steps, Ladders. Cee says, “The different ways humans have discovered to move up and down to get from one floor to one another. Stairs, ladders, escalators help us out in so many ways.” This explains why I like to take the stairs. I think these three stair are pretty unique.
These stairs are nothing compare to the 999 Steps to Nafplio in Greece though.
Raewyn (decocraftsdigicrafts) did a fantastic job of transforming her street scene that she took during the bewitching hour of a sunset. She said, “It is a montage of the same image added three times with different filters to get this zooming effect.” I love her photos. I tried to copy her idea of using Pixlr … But, Raewyn is a pro. Do visit her photos, you will be amazed.
The one below was processed in the Efex Color Pro 4 using three filters.
The “details matter” here is not about the details of this photo. It is about the details that make up a photo.
A few years ago, I thought if I got a couple of lenses and learned about the aperture and shutter speed, I’d be able to take some cool shots. Slowly, I was introduced to an arena of metering, histogram, white balance, and macro, besides ISO, composition, light, color, DOF, rules, etc. The challenging part for me is to incorporate these elements into practices. Nonetheless, the understanding has helped me appreciate the detail works behind a great photo, it is more than “what camera do you use?”
This huge glass case is located under a building and right above its underground parking in downtown, San Francisco. You can see the beautiful sculpture and the people through these clear glass windows. I don’t know how it looks like in another time of the day, but it was a sunny afternoon, I was able to capture a silhouette with my iPhone 6.
I did a major cropping for this one. To get the result, I went to Efex Color Pro 4 and added a few filters.
