Tips for photographing snakes

Well it’s not a big secret that many people are scared of these beautiful reptiles with which we share our planet. For some people, it is the scariest creature in the world and for very few people they are beautiful. For photographers it is not an easy task to shoot reptiles without knowing about them. In India, there are approximately 312 snakes out of which only 10-15% is venomous and harmful for humans which can cause death. Before photographing a snake one must always be careful as it can be very dangerous but snakes are the most fascinating subject to shoot in nature and wildlife photography.

Photography after engineering?

Why do you want to take up photography seriously now? Why pursue it after completing engineering? Answers could be many. We know that many of you out there took up engineering coming under pressure (peer and parent’s pressure). In such cases, the true passion/interest of the student could be something else (photography, in cases of readers of this article).

The Golden Hour in Photography

If there's one thing that can make or break a photograph more than any other, it's lighting. You might have the most incredible landscape or stunning portrait model, but without the right quality of light you can still be left with a flat, dull, and uninspiring photo. This is particularly true in outdoor photography - it can often be difficult or impossible to use artificial lighting to illuminate your subject, so you're completely reliant on the natural light. As a result, it's critical to find the right time of day to shoot your outdoor scene. Thankfully, professional and amateur photographers have been thinking about this problem since the invention of the first camera, and have found the perfect solution which is the so called ‘golden hour’.
