1000 days of non-stop Photography!

269-365

1000 days of non-stop photography! Each day trying to find something different & unique. Each day trying to find time to photograph. Each day letting somebody know of my project & making their day showcasing them in so called “pic of the day”. Days when inspiration came in numbers and at times in trickles. Days when I felt I was going down & at times up and up.

As I complete a perfect 1000 days of photography in my 365 Project, it seems like a dream. When I began, I hardly thought I would make it beyond a year. And now, the happiness of conquering the four figure mark. It brings immense satisfaction to know that I am dedicated to photography than anything in life. That I did not cheat but each day shot for the past 1000 days.

Yet it is not entirely my efforts that made this possible. The people made this journey possible. My friends who contributed in my daily vision, the strangers who became friends, the friends of friends, the nature, the flora and the fauna, the street characters, the toddlers, the inanimate & much more. To the people who appreciated and showered praise even when I knew deep within that this is not my best work. It only made me to work harder towards raising the bar each time, each day. Thank you! :)

It is crucial that you use genuine accessories with your digital camera. It doesn’t makes sense to save money purchasing duplicate accessories in your high-end machine. Its like using cheap oil in a high performance race car. Doing so will deteriorate the car’s performance as time progresses. It will also cause havoc with the car’s circuitry. Even your DSLR is like a high performance sports car and using a pirated battery pack can affect its performance.

Genuine Canon Battery

I recommend purchasing a genuine Canon battery pack since;

1) Long Battery Life – They last longer. Without battery, your camera is as good as a paper weight. A longer lasting battery means you can shoot on and never miss any potential shot.

2) Smart Chip – The Original Canon battery packs bundle in a smart chip which communicates seamlessly with your DSLR. This helps in providing you with accurate information about the status of your battery(battery health) and even battery charge.

3) Safe – Since its a genuine battery pack, it will provide stable power supply to your high precision DSLR’s which are sensitive in nature. Non-genuine battery packs have a tendency to fluctuate in supply voltage which can have adverse effect on your camera.

Here is how you can check if the Canon battery pack you are going to purchase is genuine.

# Cost – The cost of original Canon battery packs are twice or thrice than the third party/pirated counterparts. So if you feel its expensive, its probably the genuine thing. However, its foolish to simply go by the price. Some unethical vendors may fleece you by over-pricing non-genuine battery packs.

# Canon Hologram – Check if your Canon’s battery packaging has a small hologram in the corner. The hologram changes when you view it from different angles. This is a mark of an genuine canon product.

# Font – The font on the battery is another indicator which will tell if its genuine. On a genuine Canon battery pack, the font used is slim and the size is small. On a pirated battery pack, it is large in size and somewhat bold.

In addition, the original canon battery pack comes with a packing which cannot be resealed. You will also find instruction manual bundled smartly inside which can be accessed once you tear along the dotted lines on the rear.

Want to learn photography? Are you looking to hone your skills to even further level? Whatever the reason be, you can’t miss this. I am very happy to bring you a book on photography. I am almost done with the book and would release it later this year. Till then, I feel grateful to roll out a sample excerpt from my book. Download it, read it & practice it. As you complete, do let me know your feedback. Do share with your friends too. Afterall, we are all into this together. Let’s grow together!

Setup a Tripod Correctly

Having a tripod helps in capturing sharp & steady photographs. However, it is just as crucial to know how to setup a tripod properly to get the steady photographs in the first place. Even with a tripod, photos can come out shaky/blurry if one does not pays proper attention to its setup.

Tablets & big screen mobiles are a common commodity in this age. The amount of processing power these devices pack in have led to rise of increasing use of these devices for purpose of photo editing & even video rendering. There are tons of apps in the Play Store which deal with adding effects(editing) photos on the device without the need of a PC but very few offer to order photo prints from mobile/tablet.

One of the app which offers to send your prints from your digital photos is “Photo Prints” by Zoomin. For the unknown, Zoomin provides an online platform to order printed photo-books, mugs, calendars etc. The Photo Prints app for now works on the Android & Windows platform on mobile devices. A launch offer entitles a user to order twenty five(25) 4”x6” Matte or Glossy prints or 50% off on 8”x10” prints again in Matte or Glossy finish.
