Most photographers during the monsoon pack away their cameras in the closet. They fear the rain & prefer to play safe by not photographing at all during the monsoon. However, if you ask me monsoon presents a plethora of opportunities to photograph. If you follow some safety instructions & keep your equipment safe, you’ll return home with wonderful photographs during the monsoon. I just love shooting during the monsoons. When it rains, I make a point to leave home & I almost always return with beautiful photographs. Here is what I look out to photograph during the monsoons.

Exactly six months ago, I began my 365 Project. For those living under the shell, 365 Project is where one takes a photograph each day for coming 365 days i.e. an year. I began this project with the sole aim to further develop & enhance my photography skills. It has been a joyous ride till now as I reach the midpoint of my 365 project today. I strongly recommend this is the best thing you can ever implement to hone your photography skills & polish your creative eye. However, the 365 Project comes with its very own challenges & I’ll briefly touch over them so you know what will be coming your way. The idea behind this post is not to make your challenges easy(and they won’t) but to help you recover & not leave your 365 project midway. With that in mind, let’s proceed.
Instagram has skyrocketed to popularity ever since its inception. The recent launch for Android platform has only added to its user-base. From what they say, “It’s a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family. ”. One can say, its a Twitter for Photographers. However, most of the photos I see being uploaded are nothing more than snapshots. They are degraded further by rowdy application of the filters found within the application. Most just use the filters since they are present without caring a bit about how the final photo will look. Its like making a fun of photography as an art. In reality, Instagram has a huge potential of improving you as a photographer. Not many know this. It can be a great tool in the hands of a capable photographer. As Chase Jarvis says, “The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You”. Lets begin.
The best thing about giving your views on a particular thing is that it enables the person in front of you to learn new things. It presents a new dimension to the same thing. However, the words by you can also have an unfavorable effect on the person who asked your opinion in first place if not presented properly. Being a photographer, you’re probably registered over many of the top photography forums & sites over the web. You read blogs, forum threads, address photography queries in person, over chat etc. It becomes more so essential that you communicate your views on a particular work precisely & in the same way you feel. It becomes vital that there is no chance for your words to be misinterpreted.
Nokia recently announced the Nokia Pureview 808 mobile phone with a never before seen 41 megapixel resolution camera. Off-course, we’ll knew this would happen someday but not expected it to happen so soon. Take example of consumer DSLR camera’s which at moment are offering superlative image quality while keeping megapixel count in check. It leaves a big question mark as to why, Nokia decided to make a phone cramming it up with 41MP? Has Nokia lost it after taking a beating from its competitors?
