My Camera Strap

March 15, 2013 2 comments



I just get my new Camera Strap, I design the shape using the Photoshop and a template file and order it online, it takes more than 2 months to made, here it is fixed on my Nikon D90. I use the Galaxy S3 to take this shot.
Suggestions:
1. The best font colors are White and Yellow, Don’t use the RED.
2. Don’t use font size smaller than 14px.
3. User short words such as your Name or your Website.

The MOON

December 29, 2010 5 comments

One of my greatest moments is when I set my camera to the MOON and try to still my hands and press the shutter, looking to the sky and stars are a wonderful thing. This MOON is on its 7th day-age, Date of capture: 2010:01:23 15:26:45

I take this shot using Sigma 50-500mm lens + X2 teleconverter so I reached the 1000mm, and I did’t use a stand, it was difficult to get clear shot.

Preparing the Scene for a good capture.

December 20, 2010 Leave a comment

It is not that easy, yes you may use the Point and Shot cameras for daily quick capturing. If you want to have a good shot you may want to set-up the scene and arrange the objects in the positions that suit you.

Here is a studio set-up for a shot, I used the natural lights from the windows and the room light, Nikon D90 with Nikon 35mm lens with f/1.8 to get the DOF effect, subjects are Watermelon, Orange [made of candle]and The Chinese’s Porcelainin in different distance from each other.

Here is another view with more details on the set-up and distances.

A shot with focus on the rear object (Chinese’s Porcelain).

And now I just moved the focus to the watermelon and take the camera closer.

New Battery and Grip..

December 14, 2010 4 comments

Last week I had a problem with my New Battery for the Nikon D90 [Read the post]. I went to the Nikon Agent – Qatar, they claimed that there where no warranty on the batteries and the chargers; so they can’t change it or re-fund, I decide to get new one and I ask for the price it increased from 41$ to 45$.. Why??

anyway ..

I search the net [Amazon.com] and I fond a battery grip + remote + 2x batteries for 64$, it takes 10 days to be delivered [international transportation-Aramex] I just received it and here it is.


It’s not bad, nice shape and material, Made In China 🙂 , and the remote was missed!! so no remote..
The batteries are without brand, no name on it I hope it will work fine with me.
