MENCARI REZEKI

Al baqarah : 255

Allah, tiada Tuhan (yang berhak disembah) melainkan Dia, Yang Tetap hidup, Yang Kekal selama-lamanya mentadbirkan (sekalian makhlukNya). Yang tidak mengantuk usahkan tidur. Yang memiliki segala yang ada di langit dan yang ada di bumi. Tiada sesiapa yang dapat memberi syafaat (pertolongan) di sisiNya melainkan dengan izinNya. Yang Mengetahui apa yang ada di hadapan mereka dan apa yang ada di belakang mereka, sedang mereka tidak mengetahui sesuatu pun dari (kandungan) ilmu Allah melainkan apa yang Allah kehendaki (memberitahu kepadanya). Luasnya Kursi Allah (ilmuNya dan kekuasaanNya) meliputi langit dan bumi dan tiadalah menjadi keberatan kepada Allah menjaga serta memelihara keduanya. Dan Dialah Yang Maha Tinggi (darjat kemuliaanNya), lagi Maha Besar (kekuasaanNya)
Terima kasih YA ALLAH kerana memberikan rezeki-rezeki ini kepada aku... semogamu YA ALLAH, permudahkanlah segala pekerjaan aku, berkatilah segala usaha aku dan lindungilah mereka-mereka ini yang telah meletakkan kepercayaan mereka ini terhadap aku. Kepada rakan-rakan yang memberi sokongan terhadap aku diharap kalian juga turut sukses3x dalam bidang ini semoga kita semua menjadi yang terbaik dalam segala jenis bidang....amin ...amin ...amin..."

Custom Bokeh Shapes

According to Wikipedia, the definition of bokeh is:

"In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”

Bokeh is a word derived from Japanese, which means “blur” or “haze”, or boke-aji, the “blur quality”. The Japanese term bokeh is also used in the sense of a mental haze or senility.

Without a doubt, bokeh is one of the most interesting and sort after thing in digital photography. And it’s indeed evident from the following photographs.


Technique

We can play with those two variants to create a special Bokeh.

You will need :

One large aperture lens (a Nikon 50mm F1.8 is used here, but Canon 50mm 1.8 will also do, and the superb Nikon 50mm 1.4 will work even better)
One sheet of black paperboard
1. Cut and shape the sheet to make a fake lens hood. The Diameter is made so that it snugly fits on the lens.

2.In the middle of the filter the wanted bokeh shape is cut out - in out example a heart is used. I’m not sure how big a hole the shape can be. But you can check it right away by just looking through the viewfinder. On the 50mm lens @ F1.8 a 15mm heart gives a metering value equal to F3.2, so it can probably be a little bigger (you can use a puncher or cut it by hand).





3. Set your camera to its lowest aperture value (completely open).

Start shooting something and you’ll noticed your bokeh will have the shape just like the one on the cardboard. Here are some beautiful custom bokeh to inspire you.

MASTER THE BULB SETTING








Nothing to do with flah, this extra slow shutter speed es very handy :))

Great photography is all about capturing moment frozen in time or event that happen in the blink of an eye. So what happens when you choose to leave the shutter completely open and record the scene in front of you?
Well, if youre shooting something thats stationery in relation to your camera then it will be sharp, while all movement will become beautiful floaty shapes and streams of light. If you check out the shutter speed range on your DSLR you ll see that the longest automatikc setting 30 seconds. one click below that is BULB which allow you to maually hold the shutter open for as long as you keep the shutterbutton pressed down. Grab your camera, switch it to Manual shooting mode, wind the shutter speed to BULB and give it a go.
BULB is an essential creative feature for shots when minutes worth of exposure are needed rather than seconds- when capturing star trails, for example. as you point your camera skywards on a clear night, the slow earthly rotation will demand many minutes of exposure to record the trails.
Light graffitiis another situation where youll need to lock the shutter open to get into the frame and paint your scene.

Lomography is a Magazine, a Shop, and a Community dedicated to analogue photography.




article: www.lomography.com/about - Cached
It began with a fateful encounter in the early 1990s, when two students in Vienna, Austria, stumbled upon the Lomo Kompakt Automat – a small, enigmatic Russian camera. Mindlessly taking shots from the hip, and sometimes looking through the viewfinder, they were astounded with the mindblowing photos that it produced – the colours were vibrant, with deep saturation and vignettes that framed the shot – it was nothing like they had seen before! Upon returning home, friends wanted their own Lomo LC-A, igniting a new style of artistic experimental photography that we now know as Lomography!

...when two students in Vienna, Austria, stumbled upon the Lomo Kompakt Automat – a small, enigmatic Russian camera. Mindlessly taking the shot from the hip, and sometimes looking through the viewfinder, they were astounded with the mindblowing photos that it produced – the colours were vibrant, with deep saturation and vignettes that framed the shot – it was nothing like they had seen before! Upon returning home, friends wanted their own Lomo LC-A, igniting a new style of artistic experimental photography that we now know as Lomography!

Following the mania that ensued upon the introduction of Lomography, they flew to St. Petersburg to work out a contract for the worldwide distribution of this fantastic little camera. Soon, the 10 Golden Rules was set up as a guide to this analogue movement, followed by exhibitions, world congresses, parties, installations, collaborations, and events. New products, films, and accessories were developed, and Lomography.com served as the communication hub for Lomographers worldwide. At the same time, Lomography Gallery Stores were put up worldwide.

Today we are a globally active organisation dedicated to experimental and creative visual expression, a playful combination of lo-tech and hi-tech, and a cultural institution involved in commercial photographic and design company. We are dedicated to the unique imagery and style of analogue photography, and will continue to contribute to its development!

1982 Birth of the LOMO LC-A - the camera that started it all!

General Igor Petrowitsch Kornitzky, right-hand man to the USSR Minister of Defense and Industry, slammed a little Japanese compact camera onto the desk of his comrade Michail Panfilowitsch Panfiloff, the Director of the powerful LOMO Russian Arms and Optical factory. Panfiloff carefully examined the item, observing its sharp glass lens, extremely high light sensitivity and robust casing.

Realizing its potential, the two gentlemen gave orders to the LOMO PLC factory in St. Petersburg, Russia to create an improved version of the Cosina CX-1 – and the first working sample of the LOMO LC-A was born!

The 10 golden rules of Lomography
These rules define Lomography's philosophy and approach towards photography. Recite them, or break all the rules – whichever way, be ready to throw all your inhibitions about photography to the wind!

Take your camera everywhere you go
Use it any time – day and night
Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it
Try the shot from the hip
Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible
Don't think (William Firebrace)
Be fast
You don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film
Afterwards either
Don't worry about any rule

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR INSECT PHOTOGRAPHY










Much has been written about the techniques and equipment for insect photography. As such this article is not intended to be a comprehensive guide but does however bring together all the tips, tricks and techniques I collected during my insect photography last year, concentrating mainly on butterflies and dragonflies. All the photographs were taken at local nature reserves, Heysham NR and Gait Barrows NNR using daylight as the main lighting source. I have in the past tried flash photography in butterfly houses, but for me it offers less of a challenge and much less of a thrill to capture a sharp, well exposed and imaginative portrayal of one of nature's most spectacular creations. Man has never managed to adopt the remarkable technology of flight employed by these amazing insects. If you want to be truly astounded by the physics of flight of butterflies and dragonflies, you should look at the high speed flash photography by Stephen Dalton, undoubtedly the master of the genre.
Equipment for insect photography
There is specialist equipment available for insect photography which can cost many hundred of pounds but the chances are that if you are just starting your journey on insect photography then you possibly already have equipment which can be pressed into use for close up photography. Many digital cameras have a close focussing or macro option which enables focussing down to just a few centimetres. John Shaw's book Nature Photography Field Guide has one of the best discussions I have found on the use of lenses, extension tubes, teleconvertors, close up diopters and flash brackets in my extensive search for background information.
Book references
For flash photography I would recommend you read the Complete Guide to Close Up and Macro Photography by Paul Harcourt Davies. There is a good discussion of the various options for close up and macro photography, a good summary of using flash for lighting and some very useful charts in the appendices for depth-of-field.
For ambient light photographs one of the finest books I have seen without doubt is Close up on Insects - A Photographer's Guide by Robert Thompson. The author uses medium-format equipment to create some spectacularly beautiful photographs which show the insects in the most natural and beautiful way possible.
John Shaw's book Nature Photography Field Guide also contains a very helpful summary of the options for close ups giving practical advice on their use, advantages and disadvantages in a range of field situations.
Richard Lewington's How to identify Butterflies Collins is a great identification guide and includes information on foodplant, habitat and behaviour
