This is my submission for Neil’s project The View from Below…
This is the picture of an old church in the village of Batroun in North Lebanon. I was there shooting during the week end and took this shot for the project.
I know that it could use much enhancements specially with regards to contrasts, however I do not have Adobe Photoshop installed on my computer yet ” ((“I have recently formated”))” and I didn’t want to miss the deadline so this is a quick one done with Picasa.
I’ve recently got in my inbox a question about White Balance that I haven’t had the chance to answer yet. However it got me thinking that I have my camera set to Auto White balance 90% and the other 10% of the time it is custom white balance taken from a Grey card. No matter how hard I try I don’t remember ever using the preset white balance modes of my camera like “Shades”, “Tungsten” etc…

God knows how many times I’ve read this question in photography equipment forums “Why are most Canon L lenses white?” or “Can’t Canon give me a black L lens?” etc…
Well first of all there are quite few Canon L lenses that are black and second Canon is not the only manufacturer that “offers” white lenses. Lenses are white for a reason.
Why Lenses are white?
Today allow me to present to you Greg Evans. Greg’s love lies in taking pictures of cars, however he does it so well that one could easily say that Greg is Car Portrait photographer!
His pictures are so carefully crafted, in terms of composition, post processing, and depth of field that you directly feel that the car is posing for him.
I would have never thought I would enjoy looking at automotive pictures so much, Greg those are worth any A grade publicity campaign photo I’ve seen thanks!

A few days ago I was shooting when someone passing by stopped to ask me “what are all these pieces of glass you put in front of the lens?” ” ((“This is a translated version of the question” ))” so this got me thinking that maybe some of adidap’s readers are not familiar with filters either! So today I will be writing about Neutral Density Filters, aka ND Filters, not to be confused with Graduated Neutral Density filters, or ND Grad filters ” ((“I will write about those later”))”.
