This is my submission for the Iron Chef Photography: Fork

I took these pictures with very rudimentary equipment, since I don’t have a way to trigger my external flash off shoe, I just set my camera to 2 sec exposure in a pitch black room and I was triggering the flash manually speaking, so it took me a good deal of trial and error to get the desired effect.

Post processing on this one is minimal, just curves to increase contrast and resizing for web.

Here are other compositions I tried for that project but ended up liking this one more.

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.

On a more personal note I LOVE low viewpoint shoot and find myself shooting on my knees quite frequently.
