Shoot My City: Cidade de Daman!

We have done a fair bit of travelling all over this amazing country but sometimes, it is surprising how we miss out on those places that are few and far between in our own backyard! This thought struck us quite recently and a quick revision of 7th grade geography later, we hit upon Daman. A mere 200kms north of Mumbai and we hadn't been there! Wanderlust called, arrangements were made and we were on our way to Daman early on a Wednesday morning. A Wednesday morning might seem an odd time to gatecrash into a sleepy town on the western seaboard but that is exactly what we wanted to do- catch the town off-guard when it least expects two travel photographers to go looking around.

On The Horizon: Devansh Jhaveri

With flawless compositions and compelling subjects, the work of Devansh Jhaveri is what aspiring photographers would like to create. The gifted photographer's body of work reveals that his sense of timing has captured the abstract and ever-elusive ‘moment' many times over. His most powerful photographs consist of individuals that embody India. In that sense, Devansh's work possesses those elements that attract every Western photographer and ardently search for in the country. Surprisingly, we chanced upon the photostream of Devansh Jhaveri while meandering on Flickr.com.

Tips & Techs: Concert Photography

A phalanx of fans doesn't stand still behind you as a live band performs in front of you. This is a routine situation that any gig or concert photographer faces. It's hard and not rewarding always. Nonetheless, it's certainly satisfying at a personal level. And the ones who are really passionate about it must have already attempted it or at least nurtured a dream to chronicle tours of their favourite music artistes through photographs–a lot like the kid in the Hollywood movie of the year 2000, Almost Famous.

Tips & Techs: Extracting meaning out of abstraction

Spanish painter Pablo Picasso had a point when he said, "Everyone wants to understand art. Why not try to understand the song of a bird?… people who try to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree." Art or fine arts pictures, indeed, cannot be explained effectively in words. No theory can state what it really is, but can be at best, compared to music or poetry. Yet there is so much that can be said and discussed about art. Perhaps that is the whole purpose; to keep your attention held towards it and take you through an arty experience.

Tips & Techs: Give your photo albums some comic relief

So you're tired of your photo albums and so are your friends. Uploading the latest snaps to facebook has become even more monotonous now. You've exhausted every so-called ‘creative' pose, there is a limit to the number of new places you can visit in a week and yes, pretty much everyone's doing the same old thing in their own facebook photo albums. And how many albums can you name "Randoms", or "Friends" or some such cliché? So here's what you can do to make that album worth looking at!
