Follow the light

From being inclined towards photography from a young age to shooting grand hotels and resorts across the country, he has had an exciting journey. He has shot some of the best hospitality brands in India, and his images transport you directly to the location. A good architectural photographer is one who can make you feel the ambience of the actual location, and his images do exactly that. This month we speak to Yatinder Kumar, and he shares with us his story, and his love for light and spaces.

Candid Photography

Candid is getting popular day by day, but shooting candid is not just about technique, it’s more about how fast and spontaneous you are. Candid photography illustrates an unposed photograph or a photograph which doesn't require setting up or is unplanned. Whether you are shooting in the street or an event, it’s very rare to get a second chance while shooting candid. Some of the most powerful portraits are candid as your subject is unaware of your presence or very comfortable with it. The result will be a photograph that tells a story of the people being photographed. With comfortable subjects, a photographer can take time and be patient to grab the right moment. Below are several tips to guide you and help you photograph the naturalistic slices of life.

With an objective to honour, not only the veterans but also new talent, best products and services of the industry, Asian Photography Awards are divided in the Product Category and Most Influential Person in Photography (MIPP) category, featuring different set of parameters for judgement in each category. Here is the lowdown on the Asian Photography Awards this year.

Using high shutter speed creatively

Shutter speed is one of the major factors in photography, other two are aperture and ISO. With the correct use of shutter speed you can create dramatic images by freezing action or blurring the motion. First you should understand how shutter speed works and how to change it. Once you have mastered those things, then you can use it as per your need. You can slow it down to create some kind of motion, or speed up to freeze the action.
