Last Day Sale of Love & Hugs, Sneak Peek & Chance To Win

Hello everybody :)
I've been busy preparing some new products for the store 
for the 1st day of June. 

Here's a sneak peek and chance to win a set of new sketch templates.
Just post in here/leave a comment, don't forget to pick a number of the set of templates you want to win. 1 or 2?

2 lucky winners. 
I'll be picking the winners on Monday
(*TIFF format are now saved in smaller capacity)
available at Pickleberrypop
It's the last day sale of Love and Hugs Collection

25% OFF individual packs and
35% OFF for the Bundle plus Bonus Alpha & Number set

This time, I really want to learn how to use my camera effectively.

I love to browse photos with bokeh. It really looks nice and wonderful that your subject is in focus and the background is a little bit blurry.

We went to Mt. Tamborine and got a chance to shot some lovely & very colorful Lorikeets near the playground.

Here's a great and very informative link if you're new in achieving "bokeh" in your photos.

Have a great day :)

This shot was taken the last time we had a vacation at Gold Coast with my DSLR. From the terrace/veranda of our hotel using an 85mm lens.

I'm currently reading some tips regarding with the ISO of the camera.
Here are some useful informations

ISO 50-100. Suitable for bright light (like outdoors on a sunny day).
ISO 200. Great for overcast or cloudy days.
ISO 400 and 800. Use these values when the light is getting dim but it is not yet night.
ISO 1600 and above. Use for indoor or night shots. 
Also useful to freeze the action in sports shots. 
These values will produce the most noise.

Here's the link of the site

Have a great day :)
