[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?

[Photo] The Lonely Boy

This afternoon (well, almost evening) when I just arrived at home, I saw a boy sitting beside the tree trunk inside a rubber-tyre almost in front of my house. When I saw him, I had an urge to take photos of the scene. So as soon as I parked my car inside, I put my bags on the top of my bed and run to grab my camera while hopping the boy will still sitting there. Then when I saw he was, I took several pictures. Here they are.

As a newbie at photography, I would like to know what you, readers, think about it. I’ll appreciate every comments and critics about them 🙂
