Shoot My City: Agra

Situated in the banks of the river Yamuna, the first thing that Agra reminds us of are the old settlements of the early Aryans, the Hindu kings and the imperial glory of the mighty Mughals. Though primarily famous for the Taj Mahal, Agra is also known for the majestic rule of Akbar the great, who followed a policy of national harmony and love, and who propagated a new religion called Din-E-Ilahi, which contrained in it all the best principles of almost all the religions of the world. Agra is also famous for its cottage industries, its beautiful Mughal gardens, old bazaars of the Mughal Durries, and various other products like marble, leather goods, carpets, etc.

Pro Profile: Phillipe Marchand

"I was fifteen when I developed my first film. That was in my grandmother's kitchen, with a small Paterson developing tank. Though I had followed the instruction on the film's packing, the result was quite disastrous. Yet, as the negative was dripping over the sink, I discovered my first pictures, the nose stucked on the gelatin. What I felt then was an indefinable feeling, a mixture of excitement and pride. Without knowing it clearly, I had become a photographer”, narrated by Philippe Marchand.

Review: Kingston 32GB DataTraveler 150

One would have never believed if a memory stick would one day offer such staggering storage capacities. But with the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 now in our hands, we know that this is now a reality. Earlier in the day, these pen drives were seen as merely temporary storage mediums due to their limited space offering. You would use them to transfer files too big to email from one computer to another. The computer itself was seen as a reliable back-up medium in this case. However, with pen drives now being able to offer such voluminous capacities, this perception might be set to change. The 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 (DT150) was launched in the previous year during Photokina 2008. Kingston had launched this along with its big brother that offered double the capacity of 64GB.

Tips & Techs: Testing Lens?

Knowing your lens will bring a visible impact on your photography too: if you understand the way your lenses behave, you will be able to make the most of them under all circumstances. You have seen the claims: "This is the sharpest lens I have ever used.” But how does a person know whether or not a lens is truly sharp? And is sharpness the only criteria by which we should decide to use a lens?
