This Diwali, I was at Mumbai. Had just a day of holiday, so it was out of the question to go home then. Instead, I came to office that night, went to the terrace, which is on the 42nd floor for a view. Looked quite nice, I must say, the photos didn’t come out to be that amazing though. But, I wanted good photos, so, … Continue reading Diwali Night – 2017
In a train, you dont have a lot to shoot, until, you stick the camera out of the window…chaos!! Continue reading Light Chaos
In my previous post, I mentioned that I take a tiny hop to a place to shoot a very particular signal, well, this is the one. Whats so special about it, you may ask, well, it was a pre decided and pre conceived shot. I knew the angles, knew the locations, just went in and took the shot. Here are the results. The first photo … Continue reading Glimpses of Mumbai – Nana Chowk, Grant Road
Photography is all about how you play with light. Whatever be the kind of photography you do, light is the essential common denominator, be it portrait, landscape, macro, or any other thing you can think of. Light trails are a mix of use of depth of field, controlled shutter speed and ISO. Along with the basic trinity, you also bring in creativity, and different props. … Continue reading Light Trails
So, when someone asked me if I could make some tricks with the camera, I said, lets see. So, here I am, making my dear brother, who is holding the Tamron 150-600mm monster, levitate. Dont worry, no dark arts at play here. Its a very basic case of merging and two photos, shot at the same location, same settings and then a case of precise … Continue reading Proof Of Concept: Levitation
Today I got my 100th follower, and I was very happy. It made me think that today something special needs to be done, something innovative. So, I revisited an issue I had previously, how to take macro photos on a budget. The macro lens I am aiming for, is still pretty much out of my reach, but lens reversal, that can be done right…so lets … Continue reading Up Close…Encore
It has happened to me before, and I know it shall happen again. The feeling that I have had enough of taking photos and now its time to throw in the towel and give up, but then, my muse keeps me ticking. Muse, when used as a noun is defined as a person, especially a lady, who inspires creative talent. If I go by that, … Continue reading My Muse
So my dearest cousin showed me a photo. It looked awesome and had clever use of photo editing tools too. She said, “Bro, how is this done? Can you too do it?” I got the concept all right, but was a little skeptical. Still, no harm in giving it a shot! A little tweaking and a few repeats down, I got the proof of concept … Continue reading Proof of Concept!
I dont take selfies often, but when I do, they are a bit…shall we say….uncommon!! I saw a similar photo while browsing through the internet, and creating this was not tough at all. Two separate images merged in photoshop, thats all. This is an example of Double Exposure though. Some cameras, the high end ones offer this function in body, others, like me, we … Continue reading Peekaboo!!
Admit it dear readers, you have all done it too, sat staring at the wires as it rained and imagined the raindrops to be racing each other. Few days ago, suddenly it was cloudy and rainy here, and when the drizzles stopped, I noticed that the wires out in my balcony looked like a starting line for the drops. A little channge in the perspective, at they … Continue reading String Of Pearls
