Shootout - DSLR Shootout

For many photographers it is a dream to own a SLR camera because very few things that come close to the excitement of capturing an image through a SLR and the joy of seeing those special moments captured in frames. But with the advent of technology, we find comfort in the digital world with DSLRs (Digital Single Lens Reflex), that makes work flow faster and easier

Shoot My City - Dubai

My impressions about Dubai were largely drawn from a few Indian friends of mine who’d migrated to the country for work. It is no secret that Dubai has scores of Indians working there, and I’d almost imagined the place to feel like Mumbai in some way. However I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful mix of people there. Truly cosmopolitan in nature, Dubai seems like a nation built from the ground up in a desert with such opulence, that it almost seems surreal.

Born in Mumbai, Kshirsagar grew up at the foothills of Matheran and came to love the simple things in life. As a child, he loved reading picture books and has always had a keen interest in people and the things they do. So, being drawn to photography was only natural.

Tips and Techs - Photoshop Tutorial

This tutorial will show you how to merge texture of your choice, with an image using photoshop. This technique can be used to give photos a grunge or vintage look. Here, I am using an image of a Rock Band shot in an old abandoned factory. The idea is to give the photo a more grunge or muddy feel by using textures. You can use any image that works as a texture for the photograph you are working on. Or else, a variety of textures are also available on the internet

Tips & Techs - Using Available Light for Photography

Using available light in photography generally yields realistic, intimate results, and it’s this allure that prompts photographers to experiment in a variety of ways with available light rather than using a flash unit to light up a scene. ‘Available light’ in an indoor scenario usually refers to the use of normal room lighting while taking a photograph indoors. But it isn’t restricted to the use of indoor lighting, and very often, photographers take advantage of light streaming in from a window or through a door to create some splendid images.

TIPS & TECHS - INK-credible

One important thing about any creative field is that there is no end to imagination. A creative mind would go hours on end just experimenting and creating so as to evolve his/her passion. In photography too it is important to find inspiration to try new things with a different approach or style.

TIPS & TECHS - Say it Right!!

Do you ever get a feeling that a tune or a song that you are listening to fits a given situation or a particular moment perfectly? Similarly, the right words or caption to describe the mood or the scene in an image can add value to it, make sense of it, change perception of it or simply…take it to another level. So caption your images right!

Camera Reviews - Nikon Cool pix AW100

The compact camera segment has a wide range of categories of cameras and one of the recent additions to the many existing categories is the ‘compact rugged camera’ segment. Manufacturers are outdoing themselves in the quest to build nearly indestructible cameras that a user can freeze, drop and submerge, without a worry. Looking beyond the standard waterproof protection that these cameras have long offered, many of them today are also dust, shock and freezeproof. With greater styles and variety, these cameras are beginning to become even better candidates for general, everyday use.

Camera Reviews - Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V

Whenever an advanced amateur looks to buy a camera, the first thing he/she would consider, is either the megapixel count and the zoom capability on the camera. This is the usual frame of mind that a photographer would be in. Working on this advantage, Sony, by updating a fullsize 30x optical megazoom, made sure that the Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V fulfills the requirements of its target audience. Apart from the zoom, the DSC-HX100V features a 16 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor allowing the camera to frame at 10fps and record full HD videos. The DSC-HX100V is a well packaged deal in terms of features, photo and video quality and most of all the zoom range.
