Miniature Shot of Ålgård (Tilt Shift Photography)

One thing that interests me these past few days is tilt-shift photography and since I don’t have a tilt shift lens, I downloaded the trial version of Sony Movie Studio Platinum 10.0 and watched a tutorial on Youtube. However, I didn’t get it right. I had problems with copying and duplicating layers. Of course I didn’t give up but in the end I only got frustrated so I had to stop before I burst. But then I found a tilt shift app (TiltShiftMaker) on the internet while I was browsing for tilt-shift sample pictures. 
Here’s a shot I took from my smart phone a month ago. 

And here’s the pic after using TiltShiftMaker. 

I got the result I want for now but I’m still frustrated for not getting the manual method right. Oh well, I can try again tomorrow or the day after tomorrow… I ain’t giving up. 🙂

Winter is Here! :)

After a week of emotional turbulence, my mood is finally back to normal again. So I went for a walk today at Raudvika. It’s been a couple of months since I went for a walk here. I’ve been busy with work and school and exams are approaching fast as well so I’m kinda stressed out but nevertheless, I’m grateful for the nice winter weather this week. It made me realized that there’s always a solution to any problems. It is just up to us how we are going to gather the necessary resources/help to solve our problems.

Anyway, enough of my dramas. Here are the shots I took today using my Sony Nex 5. All of the pictures below are shot with Aperture setting and post processed them using Picasa 3.

Enjoy! 🙂

Monday Surprise

After my dentist’s appointment and shopping in Stavanger, we drove back to Ålgård to avoid the rush hour traffic. Luckily we made it on time. I asked my bf to drive to the grocery store to buy some food and when we drove into COOP’s parking, something catched our attention…

I’m wondering if it’s waiting for its mama.
The young swan seemed tame, but I was still very cautious. I don’t want it to peck me!
