Journey of 3 Indian Female Photographers

Photography is largely seen as a boys’ club, but there are a number of highly-talented female photographers out there who can prove you wrong. As a tribute to women this month, we spoke to three different female photographers, from three different streams of photography - Rathika Ramasamy, a wildlife photographer, fashion and editorial photographer Nisha Kutty, and Bhumika Bhatia, an upcoming contemporary photographer from Delhi. They discuss their journey, struggles and achievements, and gender-biases, if any, in the field of photography.

Festivals of India - Bihu

The month of April is a very important month in the Hindu calendar as the month marks the arrival of festivities and New Year for many cultures and regions. The idea celebrating the New Year is same throughout but the way its arrival is celebrated differs from place to place and people to people. The North Eastern states of India are filled with culture and tradition that very less people have heard or seen visually. So I decided to take to take a trip to Assam and try documenting the most important cultural festival of the year. ‘Bihu’ is the chief festival in the Assam state of India.

Review - Canon EOS 77D

The Canon EOS 77D is a new member of the Canon XXD family. Previously we have seen cameras like the EOS 70D and 80D surprised us with their amazing performances. The segment has been favoured by quite a many number of photographers, especially the intermediate users and the serious hobbyists and amateurs. The main reason for the segment to be so popular is the ability to get professional control while taking images and outright performance by the sensor which delivers very great performance in low light and general situations. The other factors being a vari-angle LCD, another great addition which made the 70D and the 80D so desirable, makes its way into the EOS 77D as well. We tested the camera this month, and here is how it performed.
