Dabboo Ratnani: The Man Behind India's Most-Awaited Calendar

As we enter 2017, my calendar goes into its 18th edition. I have done 18 years of non-stop calendars with different celebrities, and while it seems like a breeze, there's a lot that goes into this. We started way back in 2000, at the turn of the century, when everyone was talking about about the Y2K, about the dawining of the new millennium. I thought what better than having a calendar of my work to bring in the new millennium, as it will be always remembered. When doing it at that point I thought that this will be a one time thing and I will release it for the year 2000. I went through my work and I put together about 12 pictures of the images that I had shot over the years.

The Creative Mastermind - Tim Tadder

Growing up with a father who was a photographer, Tim Tadder was familiar with the art since a young age. He grew up to become a teacher, but his obsession with photography led him to quit and take up photography full-time. After a stint as a photojournalist for a few years, he gradually moved to advertising photography, and there was no looking back. Tim is today one of the most sought-after and influential, internationally acclaimed advertising and sports commercial photographers, having shot for clients like Coca Cola, Gatorade, Adidas, New Era etc. He is also renowned for his celebrity portraits, and he has shot notable personalities like President George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Manny Pacquiao, Tom Brady, Ice Cube and Michael Phelps.

Review-Sony RX100 M V

The Sony RX100 V is the successor to the Sony RX100 IV which was a small but a powerful camera indeed. The RX 100 V sports a 20MP 1-inch type sensor and added 4K video recording capacity along with HFR (High Frame Rate slow motion video) capabilities, add to this a 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 zeiss lens. The form factor is small like the previous cameras from the RX series but nonetheless it is very compact and handy and readily fits into the pocket. The Sony RX 100 M V shoots at 24 frames per second which sounds inredible. Let us find out how the camera fares when put to use.

Some of these moments were captured on camera. These powerful images became the face of these events. They were seen by the world, shared on social media. They moved people, raised awareness, and were a reminder of how photography still remains as one of the more powerful visual mediums.
