Photo 101 Rehab: The Conjuring

I couldn’t miss this week’s Photo Rehab Cover Makeover. Anything that is dark and morbid has my name on it. So does Desley’s challenge of remaking the cover of the horror movie The Conjuring. Here’s my gloomy and bloody remake. Advertisements

Eye Spy and the Happiness Project

Ages ago in summer (not the Australian summer, the European summer), I promised the girls (and guy) from the Photo 101 Rehab that I would join their then new Cover Makeover challenge as soon as I have time. I never had the time, so I decided that the time was now. Disappointingly, I missed the

Photo 101 Rehab: Street Life

It’s been a long and hard withdrawal time since my last visit to Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab. Now I’m back with vengeance and with a street life photo. As always, the photo was shot with Nikon D80 and post-processed in Corel PaintShop with the following major edits: correcting the perspective enhancing sharpness, clarity and contrast

Photo 101 Rehab: Street Life

In railway halls, on pavements near the traffic, They beg, their eyes made big by empty staring And only measuring Time, like the blank clock. –Stephen Spender I’m joining another session of Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab. While I was slightly frustrated that I didn’t have any portraits to post, which is what our lovely hostess

Photo 101 Rehab: Portrait

Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab has been focusing on monochrome portraits recently. I don’t do portraits for lack of subjects to shoot, so here is the closest that I came to a portrait. It is a local homeless person, with her backpack in the background on the ground and her breakfast of beer and cigarettes lying

Photo 101 Rehab: Baroque

My today’s contribution to lovely Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab session is a shot of a plague column, a structure often found at the main square of cities in these parts. It was supposed to protect the inhabitants from pestilence, though how exactly remains uncertain. As always, the photo was taken by my child-toy Nikon D80 and

Photo 101 Rehab: Rain Drops

Lucile, a life saving friend and blogger, is reopening her Photo 101 Rehab! Here is my contribution on the topic of rain drops. What you see is a bad photo masquerading as an artsy photo. Here is what I did in Corel PaintShop Pro X6 to make a blurry and badly lit picture look like

Photo 101 Rehab: Light at the End of a Tunnel

It would appear that there is indeed light at the end of a tunnel. I was inspired to this shot by a much better version of the same theme by Albert here. This is my contribution to lovely Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab, which you can join here. The photo was taken with Nikon D80 and

Photo 101 Rehab: Oppressive

Unlike normal people, I find the seasonal atmosphere oppressive. It feels heavy, overwhelming, blurry. These are the emotions I’m trying to convey with my contribution to Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab group. The photo was taken at a Christmas fair with Nikon D80 and processed in Corel PaintShop Pro X6. Here are the major edits: increasing contrast

Photo 101 Rehab: Sky

Inspired by the Photo 101 Rehab organiser Lucile, I’m contributing to today’s session with a sky shot. (Besides a cabbage shot, obviously.) The photo was taken with Nikon D80 and processed in Corel PaintShop Pro X6. Here are the major edits: increasing clarity, sharpness and contrast applying local tone mapping using Black and White High Clarify filter
