In this making of (the 1st of many more to come) I want to share the making of “Winter is Here” image. It’s a photo of a storm over Tel Aviv, Israel as shot from the city of Jaffa that overlooks the entire coastline of Tel Aviv.
This photo was taken in Luang Prabang, Laos.
The royal palace grounds are actually a national museum these days. The temple in the photo is called Haw Pha Bang and it isn’t the actual palace but a royal temple that was built to house Laos’ most sacred Buddha image and it is by far the most eye catching building in the grounds.
This photo was taken on a bridge connecting the cities of Tel Aviv (on the left) and Ramat Gan (on the right).
I saw a tutorial video about shooting black and white images and how they can work great in situations where the scene seems a bit boring. It was a very cloudy day in which the sky was completely covered and no light was getting through so I figured I should go and see if I can get something interesting to turn into a black and white photo.
This photo was taken inside the MBK shopping mall center in Bangkok, Thailand.
It is actually one of the very first images I took with the Sony NEX-7 right after I bought it at one of the photography shops inside The MBK center which is a huge shopping mall that is on the travel schedule of every tourist that travels to Thailand.
This photo was taken at a the Safari Park Open Zoo in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. The photo was actually taken by a friend and edited by me.
He managed to catch the tiger in a pretty interesting (or scary) moment as you can see below. I personally love tigers and think they are magnificent animals and getting the chance to be so close to one is pretty awesome (and yes, the tiger was drugged and sedated).
This photo was take at the Royal Palace complex in Phnom Pen, Cambodia.
This is actually an HDR created from 3 different exposures and i thought that the black and white look is just perfect for this photo and gives it a real dramatic look and feel.
