Pro Profile - Kevin Winzeler

Growing up among the expanses of mountains and swathes of red rock in Utah which he affectionately calls home, he warmly recounts how it nurtures his creative spirit. It also bolsters his innate drive to seek adventure, and shapes his perception of nature as a "sacred place". "The mountains of northern Utah and Red Rock in Southern Utah inspire me and are places that I go to help nurture the creative spirit,"he says. Having enjoyed team and individual sports in school, he pursued sports and adventure sports when he made his foray into photography for the first time after deciding to forsake his full-time job for it. "Being able to get into the outdoors and combine my passion for photography with the sports I grew up with was a dream come true,"he elaborates. While his dream of having a gallery and pursuing landscape photography still lingers, his focus shifted early to capturing action and sports, and building a professional career around commercial and advertising work. We are talking to Kevin Winzeler this month, whose work boasts exemplary sports and action photographs, coupled with a grand clientele that includes Adobe Systems, Columbia Sportswear, Skiing Magazine, and Skullcandy.

Festivals of India - Rathyatra

Ratha yatra or the 'Festival of Chariot' is based around the worship of Lord Jagannath. It is celebrated as Lord’s annual visit to his birthplace, the Gundicha Temple, and his aunt’s home.


The actual Rath Yatra Festival originated at Jagannath Puri, but it is celebrated in small and large scales all over India. The festival is also known as Gundicha Jatra, Ghosa Jatra, Navadina Jatra, Dasavatara Jatra and by a variety of other names depending upon the region it is being celebrated in.

Feature - Everyday Pakistan - A story of misrepresentation

Imagine a group of young girls playing football and getting a picture clicked afterwards. You would imagine this to be a scenario of any western country or even India (where women are still fighting for equal rights), but what if I tell you it’s actually from Pakistan! You might not have left that country out intentionally in your mind while thinking of this scenario, but the media of both the countries and worldwide have tapped into our subconscious and have changed our perception about that country completely.

Review - Canon 1500D

The EOS 1500D is an entry-level DLSR camera announced by Canon to replace the EOS 1300D. Designed for beginner and new users who want better image quality than their smartphones usually provide. The EOS 1500D has a 9-point autofocusing and Canon's Scene Intelligent Auto mode for simple point-and-shoot photography. The EOS 1500D only sports minor upgrades to the EOS 1300D, which mainly is the higher-resolution CMOS sensor, which is the same chip as used in the majority of Canon's current entry and mid-level DSLR cameras. The DIGIC 4+ processor is unchanged and the 1500D also comes with the older CR2.RAW file format.

Tips and Tech - Breaking photography rules- Creative freedom

For most of us who are or have been interested in photography, chances are that you have been going over the basics of photography in terms of exposure and settings. There are several rules that are associated with photography and most of us take pictures keeping those common points in mind.

Often, our images become boring, not because they are not good enough, but there is no point of interest or the interest of the viewer is not reaching where it should be. Sometimes, breaking the said rules or changing the way you compose for images might give the images a different feel altogether. It is not mandatory to follow the specifics while shooting as each one of us has a creative outlook towards things. Some develop faster than some who take time to understand and eventually learn to observe in detail.

Tips and Tech - Keeping it artificial

Keep it natural, they say. This is a platitude that has been doing its rounds in not just photography, but in almost every form of art. However, with technology growing by leaps and bounds, and with its foray into photography, such an advice to keep it natural would sound trite even. This time, we are going to tell you ways to use artificial light and how to break away from the conventional, age-old way of using natural light.
