[Photo] [AIESEC] Exchange Fair 2012

Yesterday I went to ITB to visit one of AIESEC main event this term, which was exchange fair. There were lots of booths from various countries which not only displayed unique goods, but also traditional foods. I don’t remember all the countries that participated, but I think I visited Poland, Thailand, Turkey, and China’s booths (I’m sure there’re other though). Beside that, TBI (english course) also open a booth while offering special discount for registration fee. There were also several talkshows, though I only managed to attend one (my mom want to go somewhere else.. haha). And… these are the photos of the event:

[Photo] Dreamy Look Photos

Last week I went to Pangandaran for 4 days with my friends and one soon-to-be-married-couple. I was asked to help my friend taking pre-wedding photos and even though I was not paid, I though it would be a good opportunity to get some good pictures for my portfolio (newbie’s way of thinking… hahaha). *Note: The entirely time there, I used my new 50mm f/ 1.8 fixed lens :))

Yesterday when I sorting the pictures & browsing the internet, one of my facebook friend post a link that showed some dreamy-look photos (http://www.petapixel.com/2012/02/06/dreamlike-photographs-of-insects-found-in-a-garden/). Looking at those, I though this might work well with some pictures I took at Pangandaran, and so I tried to apply it at one of them. Here is the result…

 

What do you think? I’m not sure I was using the right method to make this kind of editing (doubled the layer, make the color over & blur, change it into overlay, then come some leveling) since I haven’t get the right tutorial yet, so if any of you know the right step, please leave comments below :)).

*Hm… I notice something from my new lens when I did this pre-wedding photography. It does have nice colors and small focus, leaving the rest of the picture in blur. But sometimes it gave not-that-nice bokeh, it’s too rough for my taste and in several occasions, ruin (or almost) the images. What a pity… -> price never lie huh?
