Gloson Photography (24 Photos)

I love photography. And recently, I have become very interested in photography. I don’t have any professional cameras (or not I should’ve started earlier), but just a small cheap one (which doesn’t capture as well as other cameras do).

One fine day, there was this beautiful purple sunset. It was spectacular! So, I decided to take a photo of it. I also took some other photos. Next, I enhanced the photos using Picasa (I only used it to make the pictures more contrast).

Then, I started my flickr account (Please add me if you want :-) ) and uploaded the photos there.

By the way, today, 31st August 2009, is Malaysia’s 52nd National Day! So here are the photos of my beloved country :-)

Shot on an evening (Same time as purple sunset).  I darkened the buildings using a photo editor.

Then, the morning after the next day, I went cycling to take some photographs. Here are some best ones that I took.

Zoooom!
Shot while the car is moving. When the car came, I quickly hit the ‘snap’ button and turned the camera to the direction of the moving car while the camera was capturing the scene.
Zoooom! 3

The next day, I took more photographs :-) Here are the best ones.

There! I hope you enjoyed my photography!

One lesson I’ve learned from this is don’t underestimate things. I underestimated my cheap digital camera because it always takes low-quality photos and even moving it a little can cause blurs (But it has become an advantage because the blurs has made the photos more artful).

Just because a thing isn’t good doesn’t mean you can’t make good use of it!

Please don’t forget to add me on flickr! (I will be posting more photos).

See ya!

      Thanks! Yes, but I only used Picasa to make it more contrast. That’s all ;-)

    Not worry, pictures taken above have its own viewing value. Always begin with a basic camera first, full use on the existing camera function. Later only consider a medium, and then high end :)

      Hey Simon,

      Thanks for your wise comment on making full use of your camera’s functions ;-) . So even if the camera is not that professional and you make use of all the functions, the photo might even turn out professional.

    Hey Gloson, I’m amazed by your maturity and insights for your age!! Blogging is definitely an excellent venue for self-expression and self-discovery and I’m glad your mom urged you to start a blog. On a separate note, I was in Malaysia (Langkawi) for the past few days and it was enjoyable there, even though it was raining for majority of the time :) Happy national day to you!

      Hi Celes!

      I really appreciate your kind words! Yeah it has been rainy here for the past few days, and it is good because it has washed away all the haze and it makes good photographs ;-) !

      Hi Kelly!

      Thank you very much! The Speedy Lorry was like that already. I just snapped the photo when the lorry was passing by. Somehow the camera took it like that. As I said, I only used Picasa to make them more contrast ;-) .

    These are good. I especially like ‘Tree’ and ‘Car Reflection’ – can you tell i go for photos taken from angles we normally don’t think about?

    Loving your Twitter advice recently. If i could remember how i found you i’d let you know… but glad i did. :0)
