Shoot My City: Porbander

Porbander is most famously known as the place where the father of our nation; Mahatma Gandhi was born. This is a small and quiet city in the state of Gujarat yet it is full of surprises. We took the train called Saurashtra Express to get there. Contrary to the name, it's a painfully slow train to travel in, but unfortunately that was the only train available from Mumbai that directly goes to Porbander. On reaching there, we found that the place was much smaller than we expected and due to the recent downpour of rain in Gujarat…

Camera Review: Nikon D60

The Nikon D60 is an entry-level 10.2 megapixel DSLR aimed at general consumers who are typically upgrading from a point and shoot or film camera.

Tips & Techs: How to startup your photography business

Once upon a time, creating a photography business was pretty straightforward. You had your equipment, rented or built a studio, then you marketed your services to ad firms, engaged couples and anyone else that might need a photographer. In your spare time, you dragged your camera to scenic spots, sports grounds or anywhere else you could shoot and you took the sort of pictures that warmed your heart.

Tips & Techs: Be the master of your own photography niche

Specializing is essential in any field of business. Creating your own specialty or specialties lets you stand out from the crowd. It makes you an expert and helps you to win a better share of the demand for those kinds of photographs. Here are some of the genres and niches that you have probably skipped. These genres are not a part of the future market prediction, but they help you find a field to specialize in. It is also not necessary that each or any of the niches suit your style.

Tips & Techs: Rock on… with your camera

'Music' is the first thing most people would associate with a concert, but camera buffs wouldn't share that association. That's right, because 'photographs' are the first thing that would come to our minds. Why even audiophiles with a penchant for photography would be keener to get a camera along rather than head bop to the music. We chose to shoot at Irock for the sheer intensity and energy that was cultivated by India's very-own homegrown musicians. There are a few rock concerts in the country that get the response Irock does. Bands from all over the country compete in Mumbai for national acclaim. The show dubbed as the 'Woodstock of India' completes 23 years this year…
