Play of Cups & Light

What do you need for a good photograph? Subject? Light? A big yes indeed but don’t forget the camera itself. A good photograph knows no camera. It doesn’t matter if it’s your cheap cellphone or the pricey DSLR. You need to have it with you every-time & everywhere you go. It’s the only way you won’t miss great photographs & succeed in improving as a photographer.

Out of the above three images, the second one is perfectly timed. It tells a story. The rest two are simply snapshots with no engaging quality. The three were taken just a few milliseconds apart.

Toss those Speedlights!

What do you do when you are bored? When no idea comes to your mind? Then all of a sudden, you think, let’s throw those speed-lights up in the air! Here is what you get after having a few, “heart in your mouth” moments. If your speed-lights or the cute canine is hurt during tossing, do not blame me. 😉
