The 365 project is coming to the final day today. This projects ends today but the journey will continue.
This blog will continue with new photographic exploration. I thank each and every one for viewing the posts, liking the posts and following the blog. Each likes you have given is a great encouragement for me.
The blog started on 25th sep 2013 as a trial post on http://365dayswithnex3.myfotojournal.com got kicked off on 30-Sep-2013. First post in the log was that of Junior, Neeraj and the last post in the series is m family, without the support of whom the project wouldn’t have been possible. Junior has posed for me n number of times during the last 365 days. Whenever I run short of ideas for the blog he provides me wonderful poses and shots. Smitha provided me wonderful themes for this blog multiple times when I went short of ideas and stick to flower and leaf pics :).
NEX-3 has proved to be a wonderful tool, even though its part of the entry level NEX series the dynamic range and quality you get from that sensor is amazing. NEX had never let me down in last 365 days. Be it in harsh day light or night shots, the Sony sensor had provided me with wonderful raw images which I can manipulate later.
Last 365 days has been a wonderful learning experience for me, studied a lot more about photography, lights and shading etc. It also helped me improve a lot on the post processing side also. Hope you all also has a good journey along with me following the post. Thank you all…
Today I got a wonderful color processing plugin from Topaz, the Topaz Restyle. Its very easy to use and has around 1000 in-built color effects.
Will post a detailed review once I get comfortable with this tool…
Tea shop from my native. This kind of shops used to be a common sight across Kerala. They now getting rarer with the new age fast food restaurants coming up.
If you ask me, I would prefer the old tea shops to these new age fast food shops. These tea shops serve very tasty food, normally cooked in stove burned using wood and I love the aroma of wood smoke (if its not rubber wood 🙂 )
I have used the latest plugin from Toaz, restyle, for post processing the colors.
Stinging Nettle, locally known in Kerala as Choriyanam or Chorithanam is a plant with many Medicinal properties according to Ayurveda. If the leaf gets in touch with your skin how ever the story will be different. Its very itchy and the itchiness may last for hours….
Bird’s Eye Chilli or Tabasco chilli is locally known in Kerala as Kanthari mulaku. This chilly is very hot and is used in traditional Kerala cuisine.
Kerala style Fish curry tastes best when Kanthari mulaku is added.
