EDITING STREET IMAGES

Nowadays there are cameras everywhere, on our mobile phones, on our tablets, besides DSLRs, point-and-shoots, rangefinders, which are rather used very less these days in the era of mobile photography. This makes us witness a huge proliferation of images on the internet, more than ever. With technology allowing almost everybody to shoot images, there are ample amount of images which are rather very eye-catching thanks to overdone editing or repetition.

SCRUTINIZING THE ANGLES

The relationship between the camera and the object being photographed provides emotional information to the audience, and guides their judgment regarding the character or object in the shot. An angle will add perspective in your pictures and there are many ways in which you can do this. The more extreme the angle, the more symbolic and heavily-loaded the shot will be.

This month we shall be taking a glance at experimenting with different angles to get the best out of a photographer’s eye.

TEXT OVER IMAGES

There are a lot of images on the internet with a million hits that gets our attention in a blink, but probably some of the most eye-catching images are the ones with text. If you are a frequent visitor on tumblr/facebook or pinterest, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It’s those images that you feel capture just the exact feeling you feel. I’m talking about images that define an emotion or a line in the most perfect way you can imagine.

Shooting Continuous Sequence Images

Still images capture the essence of the moment; they freeze a moment in time. Some moments occur in such a quick succession that at times it becomes difficult to choose one image from another, sports images are a good example of this. On the contrary, a single video footage can establish more detail and give the viewer a complete picture of an event. Another aspect that differentiates video from still is that still images arrests motion whereas video clip feature motion. However, various techniques like panning, zooming while shooting and creating gif files in post-process allows showing motion in a single file or image. In recent times, you may have stumbled upon action sequence images which show the trail of a subject in one image. This month we will try and understand what goes into making such jaw dropping imagery and explain the techniques involved in doing so.

Photoshop Touch

At first glance, when you open PS Touch the interface looks clean and self-explanatory. The opening screen shows thumbnails for tutorials and an intro to get you started, as well as thumbnails of projects you've worked on before. But as you spend some time around, it becomes clear that some aspects of the interface are both redundant and unintuitive.

Minimalistic Mobile Photography

This month, in our section dedicated to cameraphones, we explore a unique style of photography – Minimalism.

By definition, minimalism means to strip down a piece of work to its most fundamental feature. The simpler meaning of Minimalism is ‘less is more’.  Minimalism as a style is used across various streams of design, from art and architecture, to music and literature. The technique is not uncommon in the field of photography either, and a number of photographers apply it in their work.

Shoot My City - Sri Lanka

We have travelled across the vast lands of India, and covered multiple cities and towns, ranging from Ladakh, way up North in the Himalayas to Alappuzha, down South in Kerala. This month we will take you further down South, across the border, to our neighbouring country Sri Lanka.

Fondly known as the land of thousand smiles, Sri Lanka is an island country that sits roughly 25 kilometers south of India. The entire island of Sri Lanka is not too big, and the population of the whole country is roughly the same as the population of Delhi.

Our trip to Sri Lanka was an impromptu one, and while I did not have ample number of days to cover the entire island, I focussed on the beautiful beaches lining around the southern coast, and the urban attractions of Colombo and around.
