Contrast: Isn’t it wonderful that such a little black box known as the camera can absorb so many patterns of light know as photos? 😛
Anyway… I had actually planned to continue my Psychology series today but… I’m actually… sick. 😦 so I can’t really think straight.
But I was lucky I was able to make a vlog this week before my throat went down and you can check it out at my ‘Vlogging Channel’ tab!
Have a great Sunday!

I remembered I made a similar post back in 2011 when I received my first and only Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy SII, in addition to a wonderful book of course.
Well this year, I also decided to get myself something tech-y as well as books and since I got my gifts way before Christmas (i.e. for more than a week)… today’s post is born!
But first, for the sake of the Christmas and holiday spirit, I’d like to share with you an event a group of YouTubers, including me, are doing to help other YouTubers, as during the holiday season we want to Do Good 🙂
Here it is:
Hope you have some spare time to watch it! If not, without further ado, here are my 2013 Christmas presents!

Indeed, it’s been a while since I did a WPC!
Here’s my interpretation of this week’s theme, focus, where I focused my SII camera on this watch-necklace, although there’s my painting at the back, which I’m almost done with by the way 🙂
Time is ticking away.
And there is school.
And there is art.
But Time is more powerful. It is above them all.
While we can catch up on work, we cannot catch Time.
No, we cannot catch God.
So what’s your interpretation of ‘focus’? Feel free to share it in the comments below!

We are all photographers now. Within a world that is increasingly visual, when every person has a pocket holding a camera that happens to also be a phone, we are all just ten seconds or less away from being our own version of paparazzi. And we tend to think this is all quite normal, don’t we?
Because it is – normal, that is. But let’s imagine you want your photos to be more than normal. How do you shoot pictures, even with a simple smart phone, that are extraordinary?
If that is you, I suggest first that you think about what kind of photographer you would like to be. Some say it is about being a silent and objective observer – unobtrusively recording whatever it is that is going on at the moment. This is when you are a photojournalist, which plays an important role in how we perceive the world around us. The most talented photojournalists can recognize visual news, which might be the significance of a melting glacier, the smile on the face of an old woman or the drama of a child running out of a burning building. Your ability to capture those things requires command of your camera as well as being in the right place at the right time – and ready to shoot.
A professional photographer quite often gets much more involved in constructing the shot and using the technology of the camera to accomplish certain things. Let’s break that down into three pieces, things that even an amateur photographer could learn (learn, perhaps, as they are looking at photography schools as a possible educational pursuit):

All right, this is a shot of my most chaotic drawer. As you can see, I took it out from my desk and place it on it.
What I usually put in this drawer are various little random things… really really random things. From bits and pieces of papers to USB pendrives to paint pots… It’s the craziest drawer I have. It’s my favourite too.
And all of this stuff is mine!
