DIY Camera Rain cover

The monsoon season is here and what do we dislike the most about it? Obviously, the rain. We get a little handicapped and slow about getting out there and capturing those beautiful moments of monsoon. Photographer’s worst nightmare during the monsoon is a bright sunny day turning into a rainy, messy and a dull day. Sometimes one drop of water can do the trick and ruin your entire camera system and sometime if you are lucky and spontaneous with what you have, you can save up your equipments and keep the damage minimum.

The Poignant Photographer

From struggling through his graduation to winning multiple photo-journalism awards at a young age, he has come a long way. In today’s times of explosion of new-media and arty photo-essays, he remains one of the few Indian photojournalists who still believe in the power of a single image. His desire to understand an issue, and mirror it in his images is moving. This month, we speak to Ritesh Uttamchandani, as he talks about his tryst with photojournalism and where the Indian photojournalism scene is heading.

Go Prime

For a long time, amateurs have been drawn towards zoom lenses as a more obvious and versatile choice. Even today, while selecting their dual kits for the DSLRs more often than not consumers opt for a zoom or a wide lens. But despite all this, prime lenses haven’t really lost their desirability. While in most cases opting for a zoom lens is an obvious choice, you might be surprised with the output or results that a prime lens can provide. So let’s find out why is it important to have a prime lens in your repertoire!

Shoot my City - Banaras

The dimly lit ghats, the serene flow of the river Ganga, the calls of 'har-har mahadev' throughout the city, the high and mighty cows and their cow dung, make Banaras. It is the most vibrant and timeless city of India that I have visited after Lucknow. A city, as old as history itself, Banaras is witness to the migration of and subsequent settlement of Aryans in India. It is also said that was of much importance to Lord Shiva’s life. It’s a city that is regarded as the holiest of all the cities in the world. I can bet you that no other place in the state has beautiful evenings like in Banaras.

Environmental Portraits

Environmental portraits are a lot like any other portrait, with an added layer of difficulty – you want the background to tell a story about the person. Often in a portrait shoot, you light the shot or use a shallow depth of field to isolate the subject from the background. However, in the environmental portrait, you want the background to be as much apart of the shot as the subject. The background tells you who the subject is. Add a modern twist to your portrait photography by getting out of the studio and into the big wide world. In easier words, environmental portraits are shots of people taken in their natural surroundings, the places where they live, work or play.
