So, photos taken at focal lengths beyond the range are termed to be wide or telephoto and hence the wide and telephoto lenses.

A week or so back, I found myself at the first floor bar, the Zoobar, cuddling puppies and taking photographs. That was the Pre PetFed get together, being organized as a ramp up to the PetFed 2017 to be held on 16 and 17 of December, 2017. I met some familiar faces there, from the previous PetFed meet, The Pupper Party, while there were some … Continue reading The Pre-PetFed Get together
There are some amazing things one can shoot during night. Long exposure shots of light trails, amazing bokehs, starbursts, star trails, and much more.

A week back, I was at Pune for my post graduation convocation ceremony. As a rule, I had my camera along with me. After all was over, as we were packing our bags to return, I notice this kitten, sleeping soundly. Approached her a bit and stroked her fur, she purred contently. I pulled out my camera, fired off a few shots, and she was … Continue reading Surprise Surprise!!
Today, as I sit to type down this post, my bags are packed and ready to leave. I leave NICMAR, Pune in less than 6 hours and will be on my way to my home first, then to much bigger adventures. Last night while packing, I stumbled across two very prized possessions of mine, my self made reverse lens adapter and a pair o kerosene … Continue reading Macro Shots
The minute you put a face in a photograph, you put a story to the photo. One must, maybe for just that one instance of the shutter click, relate to the face on the other side, know that person, know the story; this is my opinion while making portraits. This old lady said shes been in business for the past 30 years and is quite … Continue reading The ones that didn’t win – II
I have, till date, taken part in quite a few photography competition. Some I have won, some I haven’t.

When I made those photos, I made them as dearly … Continue reading The ones that didn’t win – I
