And some slightly technical things…
I’d been increasing the saturation level in a lot of pictures, I just desaturated one for the first time. That looked pretty funky.
Had been reading about textures here and there for a while but had never played with them earlier. Just did that too. It has quite an unbelievable effect.
I’m dying to lay my hands on PhotoShop (have just been lazy about it). Not that I’m too much of a fan of post processing – certainly never mean to completely change a picture – but it can make pretty things look prettier. Or some not so pretty things look pretty too. 🙂
It can sometimes be a painful process too, especially when you’re living on hit & trial. Sure it’s fun to suddenly discover something new and fun, but when it takes you hours just to figure how to get a frikkin’ shape right… it is worth it, but is very frustrating for the L5 (lower back :(. Btw, starting this week we’ll be going back to physiotherapy again. Bleh.)
And oh, apart from having been told early on that it’s always better to let that flash be, I’ve myself never liked using it. But a couple of weeks back I’d read some article online about a very neat use of it. Even in daylight. Still to try that, but I did use it for clicking a source of light. Didn’t get a good response from people, but I personally really liked it.
Flickr.com happens to be a better site than what I first thought of it. Which of course was a few years ago when I never had anything to do with the P word. 😀 Except, the friends who are now being very encouraging. Yes yes… right on top of the list is none other than Mr Deepak Kumar. And somebody recently commented on a photo of mine saying that it’s a very “Deepak style” picture. I wonder what he has to say about that. 😛
Digressing a little – it was fun watching Bhajji’s little stint with the bat today. 😀 Of course, fun also means sitting with a set of enthu people in the khandaan, some of whom are the typical cricket-crazy Indians.
And now I’m going off to sleep. See ya soon!
