Festivals of India - Bonalu

A few weeks back when we started planning the trip, we read up a lot on Bonalu. But as far as research on the internet goes, we weren’t sure if the information we got was correct or not. We had also called the Telengana Tourism department which confirmed that the festival was happening on that sunday but we had very little other information about the time and place. The incessant pouring rain made it almost impossible to take the bus. We finally boarded the bus, drenched because of the rain. As it was a sleeper we could thankfully change into dry clothes. Once we settled down I started to read up on Bonalu again as recent news articles had been published by various local newspapers and it seemed to give us a better understanding of the festival.

Expert tips for shooting ultimate long exposure photos

Long exposure Photography as you might know is a form of photography and from the past few years it has gained a lot of popularity among all photographers and hobbyists. Photographs are normally captured in a fraction of a second, but by opening the shutter for seconds, minutes, even hours, a whole new world of creativity is waiting to be discovered. Photography is all about light and without it, we wouldn’t be able to capture images at all. Saying that, the vast majority of photographs are taken when there’s lots of light around, during the daytime, often in bright sunlight. It’s easier that way. The world looks realistic and we can shoot it using fast shutter speeds like 1/60 of a second, 1/125sec, and 1/250sec. The shutter opens and closes so quickly you can barely register it with the naked eye, and any movement is stopped in its way freezing solid. Low light not only tends to be far more atmospheric than your bland, lunchtime sunshine, but it also requires you to make much longer exposures (slower shutter speed) in order to shoot images, and with that comes all kinds of creative consequences.

Review - Kodak Ektra Smartphone

Kodak has been in the scene of photography since the inception. A lot of developments and new innovations had seen the light of the day in the hands of the iconic imaging company Kodak. With decades of experience and new technology Kodak delivered its best to the consumers in the form of cameras and their stock of various photographic films in various formats. In the nineties, the digital revolution had swept off nearly half of the camera market into converting from analogue to digital, making photography easier and faster as digital images needed no processing in labs and could be seen as soon as they are shot. Kodak slowly kept loosing its grip in the market and the digital revolution had succeeded to take over the last bits of analogue photography. However in all these years, enthusiasts have still kept alive the various forms of analogue photography and a few companies have started to manufacture film again. Kodak had moved to digital and so they created something which would connect to their rich history in photography and give the users a close feel of having a smartphone and a camera which is designed to give you outright performance.
