Into the great Outdoors!

Fashion is the most fascinating genres of photography. With a great imagination and a clear concept, one can achieve amazing photographs. Contrary to what most people believe, it is not necessary that fashion has to be shot in studio. One can shoot in the great outdoors and accomplish more satisfying images than a studio set up.

We have been focusing on indoor fashion shoots in our earlier issues, but this month we thought that taking it outdoors would be far more interesting than the usual studio format. A studio set-up is mostly artificial and unless you have a creative concept, the images will not be outstanding. On the other hand, when you shoot outdoors, the location itself can become a part of your concept.

Shoot my city: Kolhapur

Kolhapur City, a ten hour bus ride from Mumbai, lies at the southern tip of Maharasthra along the banks of the Panchganga river. Kolhapur district itself is bordered by Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts on the west and Sangli and the State of Karnataka to the east. This erstwhile princely state acceded to India in 1947. It has a rich socio-cultural history with forts and palaces, traditional industry and a thumb licking cuisine. A climate that combines the best of the heady coast and the crisp nip in the Western Ghats makes the city and the rest of the district extremely pleasant compared to most of the country in the summer. This combination was too good to miss! The services of the trust worthy Ghatge Patil Transport network were made use of and on a chilly Saturday morning, we arrived at the city of Kolhapur.

People in Panorama

Panorama has always fascinated people with its wide point of view and large prints. Panoramas are usually vast landscapes and structures, giving an amazing 180-degree or even 360-degree view of the surrounding. Almost every photographer has tried his/her hand in panorama and I got to admit that, no matter how simple the view is in front of you, after you photograph and stitch it, the final result will give you a completely different perspective and scene.

Panorama of landscape is being taught and practiced for a long time but in this article, we focus on how we can implement people in panorama. Not that, it’s never been done before, this article will guide you overcome the drawback while shooting people in panorama.

Mumbai - The City of Gold

Though the archipelago consisting of seven islands, which developed into the modern city of Mumbai, was inhabited whenever history chanced on it, these islands lay outside the reach of history and beyond the marches of armies for a millennium. The empire ebbed, leaving behind some Buddhist monks and the deep-sea fishermen called Kolis, whose stone goddess, Mumbadevi gave her name to the modern metropolis.

The capital city of Maharashtra State, formerly known as Bombay lies in the southwestern part of India. Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra and the economic powerhouse of India.
