Festivals of India: Holi

Holi is one of the most popular Indian festivals, and its essence is to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, and the arrival of spring. The festival has crossed boundaries and borders, and it is celebrated with fervour not just in different states in India, but across the world. However, the best place to celebrate the festival in its purest and the most traditional form still remains in the city of Mathura and the town Vrindavan.

Tips to maximise your phone camera abilities during vacations

Not everyone is a compulsive shooter considering the fact that they might not have a dedicated camera like a point and shoot or a DSLR to take pictures. But that doesn’t really mean that someone who does not have separate camera would not be able to take good pictures. Today, it is a common trend to ditch the bulky DSLR camera when going on a vacation. As smartphones have become more and more advanced, people prefer to carry the lightweight shooters. Smartphones are now packed with advanced image sensors to record maximum details of a scene. Manufacturers have included features like optical and electronic stabilisation, slow motion and 4K videos for some smartphones making them as good as individual cameras. If you are going on a vacation and intend to take pictures only using your phone camera then go ahead. We have you covered with some useful tips on maximising your phone camera’s performance.
