In the beginning of this year, I posted about two major resolutions of mine. If you don’t have enough time to check out the post linked from here, I’ll tell you that the first one was owning a laptop and the second one was a digital camera. Almighty Allah has fulfilled my desires in the third month of the year. Two of the major resolutions are fulfilled. I’m so happy!
The first one was a laptop. I worked hard for one of my clients and earned some money enough to buy a netbook. That client was satisfied with my hard work and allowed to pay me more money in advance so that I could afford a notebook PC. I finally bought a laptop computer which is Asus.
I loved the outlook of this laptop and the features it had. I chose Dell 14R first but that laptop lacked multi-touch gesture. So, instead, I went with this laptop on my brother’s recommendation. It’s a Core i3 processor laptop with 2GB RAM, 64-bit compatible with 500GB Hard Drive and Intel HD Graphics card. It’s 14″ screen, although I actually wanted a 13″.
Then comes the digital camera. Earlier in a post I told that I was going to get a digital camera as I won the second prize on a blogging contest on a technology blogging platform called Technology Today (They are an established technology magazine here in Bangladesh). Today (21st March) I was handed over the prize and it was a samsung compact digital camera. Though in my resolution there was a Sony cybershot, I liked this one, too. At least, its initial photos looked great.
What I loved about this camera is that it lets me manually set many programs such as ISO speed and others. Its Smart Photo feature is worth a mention. It automatically sets the lens to give me a good shot.
For the first, here are a few shots I just took.
The first one here is a shadow photography. Electricity died and I was in total dark. Then I took this photo.
I first held the camera and turned on the flashlight of my cell phone right behind it which made a shadow of my hand holding the camera on the front wall. Then, turning off the flash, I captured. What do you think of it?
And here’s my Asus laptop sitting on my bed in low battery ;)
Here are a few more indistinct photos from my Flickr stream that I shot in total dark (only camera flash).
I hope to start serious practicing of photography from now on although I don’t find much things to take photos of. Street photography is a little bit daring here in Dhaka. :D Everybody is worried of their privacy. And there is too little natural place to take shots of while you are in the city. So, I’m a little worried what I should be capturing. Maybe I should confirm a tour to my village. Lots of trees and fields there to take shots of. What do you say? :D
