F8 at Infinity -1
Hi there readers,
Agreeing to the fact that my posts have been few, of late, you ll be glad to know, that it has not been only work and no play. I did manage to get some time to go shoot too.
When you use a DSLR, taking one handed shots are not what you predict yourself to be doing. But what if, you were to use just one hand to shoot? What would be your go to settings?? I am working on a series ” F8 at Infinity” to test just that. Here, the shots shall be one handed, aperture set at F8, focus at Infinity, 50 mm lens, Nikon D3100 body. The shutter speed and ISO shall be variable. Might even use the Aperture Priority mode for the same.
Here goes, the first one!
Shot somewhere between Andheri and Dadar, in Mumbai, India from the daily suburban train I travel in! Shows a grim picture of the cleanliness front. We are not perfect, still getting there!
Follow for the future posts. Let me know what you think of the this series in the comments, I will love to hear from you.
The Cat Cafe Studio – Part 2
In the previous part, you saw what makes the Cat Cafe Studio special and stand out of the crowd. This part is a special post dedicated to a couple of kittens who waged a war against each other for a toy. They stalked, pounced, bared their teeth and tumbled together in the fight. The winner, you may ask… lets find out!!
Without further ado, lets become spectators as two mighty warriors fight it out!
In the beginning, this was the one happy with the toy..
And Then….someone else spotted it!
And Stalked the target
Pounce…and the battle began
Scoping for revenge…
I feel, in the end, they kinda decided to reconcile and chew each end of the toy! We hoomans ought to learn a few things on sharing from these kittens!!
Let me know in the comments below what you found interesting and what you would like to see more!
The Cat Cafe Studio – Part 1
In one of my previous posts, a fellow blogger, The Krazy Butterfly, suggested that I ought to visit the cat cafe that exists in Versova, Mumbai. It sounded quite interesting, so, on 1st of May, I made the trip.
The Cat Cafe Studio has a seating capacity of about 50 to the brim, and has a tad expensive but good food. But that is not the main attraction.
The attractions are in a well aerated and barricaded room which houses the cats. They range from tiny kittens, to full grown, battle scarred cats. Each one has their separate temperament and attitude towards the guests. Some would playfully come close and cuddle, while others would observe you from a distance, then maybe, MAYBE, come close to you and let you touch them, for a microsecond and then purr off. It was absolute fun, and I am not the one who would go to an interesting place, and let the camera back. So, here goes…kitties galore!!
I spent about three hours in company of the cats, and loved every moment of it. Apart from being fun to watch, they have the ability to suck away the monotony of day to day life and make you happy. This applies for all the furry pets I know of though. What are your thoughts on this, dear reader? Let me know in the comments!!
In the next part of the post, I have for you, two kittens get into a fight over a toy!
Wandering through Delhi
Hi there readers,
The prompt came up as Wanderlust 🙂 and they asked about the places which made me feel different and amazing. The place that comes up readily, will be Delhi.
The hustle bustle, the crowd, the historic monuments, the food and uniquely, the company. It all amalgamated to be one of the most amazing trip of 7 days.
I wrote about them in detail in the posts which can be found here.
I ll share one of the shots that was a predetermined shot, as I call them, and it came out perfectly.
This, right here is, Bangla Sahib Gurdwara shot from across the tank.
Go through the link above, and let me know what you loved and what you believe could have been different.
