The Undying Passion for Photography

Despite having a passion for painting and the arts since childhood, he never happened to pursue it. It was only in his late forties that he came across photography, and once he picked up the camera, there was no stopping him. He went on to get his pictures published in several magazines, and won multiple national and international awards and contests. This month we speak to landscape photographer, Dibyendu Das, hailing from Silchar, Assam, and learn about how someone who found his passion much later in life, pursued it and is making the most of it.

Festivals of India - Eid-Ul-Fitr

Eid-ul-Fitr is a unique festival. It has no connection with any historical event nor is it related to the changes of seasons or cycles of agriculture. It is not a festival related in any way to worldly affairs. Its signifi cance is purely spiritual. It is the day when the Muslims thank Allah for having given them the will, the strength and the endurance to observe fast and obey his commandment during the holy month of Ramzan. People are excited to feast or most of them have friends who invite people home during Eid. Yes, Eid is a festival of love, charity and kindness and also the mouth-watering food that is made and relished by people. The month long preparation for the big day is an experience, I believe everyone should be a part of.

Finding the creative Mojo for photography

Taking pictures is fun and soothing to many who love the sound of the camera shutter and like to take pictures usually on a day to day basis. Many people who love photography consider shooting regularly a part of their creative journey. Shooting regularly would not only improve your eye for photography, but also would make you technically sharp when it comes to shooting. You also get to explore many places in and around your town or city and a great chance to put some of the best images you shot on a blog or say a photo contest. However, the habit of daily shooting is eventually lost by most of the people and the camera only has guest appearances at one point. This usually happens because the enthusiasm for shooting on a regular basis decreases and slowly comes to stand still. For developing a style and creating a body of work from the photos you need some amount motivation and self drive. Its most likely that people who shoot alone will be bored soon enough and stop shooting. Soon you will lose the Mojo of photography and the camera will just be another piece of electronic equipment lying in your cupboard. We all go through creative blocks and it’s important to get over it and start photographing again with a new spirit and a will to make great images. If you have been stuck with ideas inside you and you are not finding a way to channel it out, we have some tips for you to get back your mojo in photography.

How to use foreground and background

When shooting a scene it is important to keep a watchful eye on the background. But it is equally as important to notice if a foreground can be included as well. The human eye is capable of seeing depth in a picture and that makes having a foreground and background very important. In this article we will talk about the use of foregrounds and backgrounds in close details.

Review - Canon 800D

Canon previously this year launched a few new DSLR cameras targeted towards various sections of users. Among the new entrants in the beginner DSLR Canon placed its EOS 800D which is a successor to the very well received Canon EOS 750D.This latest model is built around a 24MP sensor that uses Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system to offer improved autofocus in live view and video (more on that later). At its core, it shares a lot with the more expensive EOS 77D but the differences become apparent when you first turn them on.

Review - D7500

The D7500 is the latest iteration in the semi-professional category after big-shots like the D7000 and the D7200 which were two extremely capable cameras. The D7500 features a massive improvement on its successors and takes its cues from the Nikon D500. The DX-format camera promises to be agile and the 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor along with the EXPEED 5 image processing engine seem promising. So we put the camera to the test to see if it is really worth its salt.
