Creative Camera Shake

Unwanted camera shake is a nightmare for photographers most of the time, but some embrace it to create beautiful photographs or photo art. If used in the right environment it can lead to beautiful painting like images that one can use as a medium of expression.  We have previously discussed how to avoid camera shake and it would be unfair not to discuss how to use camera shake creatively as well.

Shoot My City - Dayara Bugyal

When one thinks of Uttarakhand, vivid imagery of snow mountains, tall trees and people with rosy cheeks will come to your mind. This northern state of India is a traveller's sanctum and a photographer's paradise; a place I always longed to visit. An impromptu plan in June with fellow cousins to join Uttarakhand Tourism and GMVN (Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam) on their 'Trek of the Year 2015' expedition to Dayara Bugyal (a meadow situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand) made me pick my camera and leave. Who could resist the temptation of photographing and backpacking through this beautiful location! The journey that followed the moment I reached this destination is simply incredible.

Artistique 2015 - Round-Up

On 19th August, World Photography Day again witnessed the return of Artistique, as the 2015 edition of the exhibition kicked off ICCR in Kolkata. Like every year it had something better to offer. On the journey of making the masses acknowledge photography as an art form, Asian Photography went a step ahead and made the third edition of Artistique a travelling exhibition, making its presence felt in Kolkata, Delhi, Bangalore, and finally, at Mumbai.  In 2013, Artistique was first launched as an exhibition to promote the aesthetic importance of photography, which soon branched out to include works of amateurs alongside works of eminent individuals, in the form of a national competition to promote and encourage young talent in India.

Colour Banding and how to get rid of it

When it comes to printing and framing, a lot of variables are to be kept in mind in terms of sizes, print paper quality, colour modes and channels etc. A common occurrence while printing images is colour banding, which surprisingly very few beginners are aware of. Photographers rarely print their images nowadays, so colour banding is very rarely an issue they face or even notice on screen. This article will elaborate on colour banding and how to best avoid this phenomenon without compromising on the quality of the photographs.
