SMC Kolkata - The Days Of Durgotsav

West Bengal, the city of joy is known for its rasgullas, its fish and its inherent love for football. But what Bengalis are better identified throughout the world for is Durga Puja. Kolkata has always been associated with the festival and according to a school of thought the name ‘Kolkata’ itself was derived from Kalikkhetrô which roughly translates to Field of Kali (Another form of goddess Durga). We had previously done our Shoot My City on Kolkata, but never had featured Durga Puja as a center of interest. Kolkata is but synonymous to Durga puja.  According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Durga was created by the three all powerful Gods- Bhahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara (Shiva). They, along with the lesser Gods, combined their powers to create Durga, to slay the demon king Mahishasura.

Newest launches for the wedding industry

The wedding photo industry is ever growing and this genre is not going anywhere. There was a time when documenting wedding was just a part of having pictures taken during the ceremony itself. But it has changed a lot in recent times and it has evolved into an art form and a business. Wedding photographers around the world invest on different equipments to further their photography needs and major companies that produce them have put a lot of money in their research and development to make products specific to the wedding photographer’s needs. 
In this article we take a look at the newest and best recent launches that are specifically aimed or can be used by wedding photographers for their assignments. We will cover cameras, lenses and other equipments and even photo albums or new software that have been developed specifically or can be of good use to wedding photographers. We will talk about the features, the uses and the downsides of each product so that our readers can decide what to invest on.

Ricoh Theta Review

With advancements in technology a lot is being done that seemed impossible to achieve even a few years ago. Hover boards, X-ray guns, robotics and many other mindboggling things are being researched and created that could only be seen in movies and one such thing is 360 degree picture and video. Ricoh has taken it to newer heights with its Theta series of cameras that can take 360 degree panoramas and videos. We got our hands on a Ricoh Theta and tested it out. While there are no set parameters to test such a camera, we will discuss the pros and cons through our tests and personal experiences.
