Photo Editing & Macro Shots

Are you always feeling bored? Do you suddenly realize that you have a whole lot of free time to yourself? This was what I did one day after coming back from the library.

I took crappy pictures of myself using the webcam. Edited the pictures using 3 different graphic programs and made this. Haha!

This was how I did it. You can do it too.

Step 1: Captured pictures of myself with webcam.
Step 2: Reduced noise using Adobe Photoshop CS2.
Step 3: Edited pictures using Picasa2.
Picture1: warmify
Picture2: B&W
Picture3: I’m feeling lucky, graduated tint, warmify
Picture4: tint, glow
Picture5: I’m feeling lucky, graduated tint, B&W, film grain
Picture6: tuning (fill light, highlights), soft focus

Step 4: Combined pictures using nEOimaging v1.0.1. Frame added.
Step 5: Added text using Adobe Photoshop CS2

Woila~! You have created a self made horrible JPEG of yourself. Haha! You can’t blame me for doing this. I was bored you know.


Enough of crappy pictures. Here are some not so crappy pictures. These are actually macro shots of flowers, plants, etc. I took these pictures with my PnS camera (Panasonic DMC-FX12). I’m no pro photographer. As a matter of fact, I don’t know anything about photography. What I know about macro shots is that you go really close to the object and snap! So please leave comments, yeah?!. :)

Opps! Something went wrong here. Focused wrongly. :S

This picture is not a macro shot. I just like how the canopy looks.

the best thing about macro shots are the blurred background which can emphasize the focused object. go get poison yourself with a DSLR camera and you never have a chance to say "What should i do with all this money"
