Picture of the week - Kunming

Will I ever make it off the island again? Who knows? Anyway, here is a picture I took in Kunming, China. In October 2018. It was 25°C.



It's a collage...





Picture of the week - Fun with flash

No comments
I was in my friends place near Blönduós and we were having fancy drinks. It was quite dark inside and I had no tripod and only my built in flash without diffuser, so I held the palm of my hand in front of the flash instead and used tungsten setting for white balance and viola:



So after I went home I tried several settings with my glasses on the nightstand. First without flash:


Then with flash (and set white balance to flash, too):


Then I used my hand and still flash light balance, as you see the white balance is totally off:


So I set white balance to tungsten:


Then I took a picture of my hand (with flash and flash white balance) and used that to do custom light balance:



Lastly I remembered I have a phone (which is silver), so I just used this as a diffuser (with flash white balance):

This time I just played with the opacity of the upper layer (the writing). This is the last one, I swear.




Picture of the week - Double exposed Pagoda - how to

No comments

I did not save the picture of the pagoda, so this guide is text only. First I opened up the picture of the pagoda and the courtyard as layers in gimp, with the courtyard on top. Then I set the courtyard layer to "screen" in blending options and viola. There are more intrinsic ways to this, using masks and what not, but this worked well enough for me.

I took a lot of pictures in JianShui in the south of China, they all looked quite nice (composition, light, depth of field), but were a bit boring to me, just standard tourist pictures, so I played around with double exposure and the outcome was great!
