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. 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?
