Pro Profile: Scott Haefner

A brightly coloured kite shimmering in the sun is a sight to behold, but did it ever occur that it could actually watch you quite literally? A California-based photographer Scott Haefner mounts his camera on the kite line, lets it soar high up in the sky, and while it's is at it, the kite keeps recording all what the earthlings are up to. Haefner, at the International Kite Aerial Photography Conference in November 2002, was honoured with the title of 'Most Promising New KAPer' (Kite Aerial Photographer).

Shoot My City: Singapore Sojourn

Singapore is a microstate, much like Monaco and Vatican City. It is an island city-state off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. The country is the third-most expensive city to live in Asia and among the wealthiest nations in the world. The name Singapore comes from the Malay name of Singapura which means Lion City. The words 'Singa' and 'Puram' both share Sanskrit origins. The main area of Singapore is fairly small and can be traversed in about half a day. There are five major districts to Singapore city. They are Chinatown, Orchard Road, Little India, Arab Street and Raffles Avenue.

Travel Feature: Surajkund Mela

The month of February is a 'funtastic' time that is full of fairs and festivals in India, a country rich in its cultural heritage! The diversity and the immensity of India is instantly reflected in the colours and style of costumes, flavours and aroma of food and the lifestyles of its populace that vary every 100 miles. However, if one wants to experience India's intense, enriching, and ethnic way of life without travelling around the country much, one can get a fine glimpse of its thousands of year's old culture and traditions in its fairs and festivals. All through the year, number of fairs are organised all over India, where people from various regions exhibit and trade their arts and crafts. My favourite events in February are the Goa Carnival, Nagaur cattle fair, dance festivals in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Garden festival in Chandigarh, the Desert festival in Jaisalmer and Surajkund crafts mela in Haryana.

Tips & Techs: Aim small to make it big

Macro photography is best defined as taking close-up pictures of small things. With macro photography the aim is to capture the most important detail and magnifying it, thus expositing its importance. Some photographers who entered the macro world decided to stay and specialise in this photography genre. There is some confusion over as to why 'macro' photography called so and not 'micro' instead considering the lens goes over your subjects like a microscope. My explanation for this is that your subject is made to look much larger than their original size.

Tips & Techs: Photography genres simplified

Photography is one of the most loved art forms in the history of mankind. People are so fascinated by photography these days that most of them have a digital camera. If not a digital camera, they have a mobile phone with a camera. The camera has become such a sought after gadget that most people think that once they have bought their camera, they are 'photographers'. What most people don't understand is that photography is a creative skill. Every photographer is fascinated by a different genre of photography and just owning a camera does not make you a photographer.
