Photoshop: Background Blur & Brightening photos

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
since most point & shoot cameras can not take photos with blurred backgrounds emphasizing the subject only unless its a macro shot... iv tried to explore photoshop for the first time to try to create the same effect to my P&S photos.

Composition: Rule of Thirds

Before I took photography seriously, it is automatic for me to take photos with my subjects placed in the middle of my frame... well I know most of us do this...

...then our photog-enthusiast boss taught us about the "Rule of Thirds". I know this is one of the most basic things one must know in photography but believe it or not I became aware of this only last year... I may be taking photos with this rule applied before but i guess unconsciously... being aware of this rule now helps me think about the photos I shoot before i hit the click-button...

here's a sample of a photo taken with Rule of Thirds in mind....

click on!

this blog is solely for point & shoot photography... i want not only to post photos from my ixus and zeke but also to document all the things iv learned and will be learning about photography...specially about compact cameras... i know a lot of us carry one most of the time... i hope this blog can help you take better digicam photos... maximize!

i know DSLRs are now cheaper than they used to... and how i drool over photos taken using them...but hey you just need to discover the power of your handy buddies and you'll get good photos too! :D (i remember my reaction when my photo-enthusiast boss told us that we have with us a very powerful tool... i shrugged... but now im a huge believer!)

all photos that I will be posting here were and will be taken using point&shoot digital cameras only...

meet ixus! (i used to call him "rod" but ixus seems to stick better with him)... we had been together for more than 2 years!!! and except for the minor glitch during a trip to Bataan where he fell to the sand lens first, i have not encountered any prob with him... all the things iv learned and almost all the good photos i have were all taken with Ixus! :D i hope he wont retire soon yet... iv grown sooo comfortable with him that despite the age i still feel like im getting beautiful photos with him... :D
