Creating Personalized desktop wallpapers

by Khanum



With Canon 600D in my life now, everything is different. The mood is different, my days are different and so as my desktop. Recently I found out that apart from the video making and photography experiments, The best part is to be able to create my own desktop wallpapers. I not only created wallpapers for my laptop but also for my cousin’s desktop. Alhamdulillah!It turned out great.

Why would you create desktop wallpapers anyway, Khanum? Don’t you have some cool photography to do?

Well! The answer is very simple. Originality is the keyword for a photographer and not “something big” or “something small”. As long as your work is original, your work is grand. Secondly, I like to have things my way, especially on my desktop. I wanted to have something new and fresh, also something with cool colors so I did what seemed best. Plus, its much fun to do so. If you’re into photography or just want to try out something with your kit lens, I would recommend, this exercise first ,just to test the limits of your creativity and also the limits of your camera.

The above shot was taken just to test the bokeh effect thing. I wanted to see how I can have nice looking bokeh in daylight, so I grabbed my canon, hit the landscape mode or perhaps portrait mode, I don’t rememeber now, hehe ! The point is, I was able to find pretty flowers in my courtyard and shoot them with bokeh effect. And voila! The test shot came out pretty well, well enough to make it to my desktop wallpaper collection. Enjoy the rest of the pictures.10247423_242954555907552_4448880549586493003_n

2 quick questions.

by Khanum


Number 1: I want to buy a new camera asap. I have the money. I have the nerve. I have the mind and most importantly mother’s consent. What remains now is the choice and right timings to get the best deals on two of the following. Kindly camera experts out there, or anybody who understands or loves camera , photography and videography – Suggest me Should I go for Canon T3i (600D) or Nikon D5100!? Both fall in the same price range and my budget 55k to 60k PKR. Now another thing, I have three options. Either to get it from UK, US or PAK. Do you have any good deal in sight? Plus, Videography and photography both are my targets here. I don’t want to get Canon only cause they say its great at videography and am hugely into film making. I am but film is what I make once a year to enter competitions. Photography is what I do 12 months. So I want to make a good choice for both.


Number 2: I am thinking alot about moving the blog to blogger or either start a new blog there to get my hands into Adsense thing. Yes, am not kidding. I want to try Google adsense which people brag about alot. The amount of clicks at this blog and its success over the years do make me realise that I could actually earn from blogging. I know the content has to be original. But I have a very stupid and lame question, if you can entertain it pls. Suppose I post on my blogger blog. Can I then post the same material from there to here on wordpress? Will the originality of my blogger account be comprised this way?

What do you think? (ANSWER ME!!)
