Breathing Space: How to use it to your advantage

Sometimes the unseen has more importance than what we chose to see. This statement holds true for any and every photograph ever shot. What we chose to see in a photograph is the ‘subject’, what goes unseen is everything else. In this article we will talk about the ‘everything else’ part. We have received numerous questions regarding this in the past and hopefully this article will clear the air. We will talk about breathing space or negative space and how it changes a photograph in its entirety.

Aerial photography

Aerial photography, although challenging, can be extremely rewarding and provides photographic perspectives that are exceptionally wonderful.  It is not as easy as it might seem, and it’s one of the most expensive genre’s of photography to invest in. The basic images of aerial photography are either shots of clouds from an airplane or shots taken from height. 
If you are working on a specific story, it is important to make a list of the images that you will need. By pre-planning, this will help you when time is limited and the aircraft is moving fast over the subject. Also be prepared for airsickness as this may be enhanced by constantly looking through the viewfinder and consider taking airsickness tablets before the flight and keep a plastic bag close at hand, together with a bottle of water.

A computer engineer by profession, he happened to take up photography in 2011, while on a work assignment in Philadelphia, US.

This Delhi-based photographer is also a fine-art wedding photographer. This month we enter the world of Siddharth Sharma, and find out more about the dreams and nightmares in his photographs.

Vienna – The City of Dreams

Vienna is often referred to as the ‘City of Dreams’, largely because it was home to the world’s first famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Everyone has their own perspective about places they visit and for me, Vienna wasn't a city of dreams, it was more a place where tradition and cultural heritage met a modern city. Bhavya Desai finds out more…..

Genre Specific Camera Buying Guide – Part II

To reciprocate to the growing need to know what cameras to purchase we had brought out an article on the same last month where we took up each and every genre and gave our views on what basic and advanced features to look for in a camera if you decide to pursue that genre. Photography being a vast subject that it is, we could not make enough room to cover all the genres and decided to do a part II of the article. So here is the part II where we will cover genres like food, travel, fashion, astro, wedding, fine art, underwater, product and macro photography and cameras best suited for the same.
