Diwali, the festival of lights. During the festival, the entire city is adorned with sparkling lamps, colouful lanterns(kandils) & rice lights(torans). The atmosphere is of utmost happiness as the festival marks the triump of goodness. I hit the streets to capture all the energy & passion of this festival & here is my take on the ‘Festival of Lights’. Hope you enjoy & get soaked in the festive spirit. Cheers! :)
I went all over the city to bring you the finest of the Ganesh idols. Here is my coverage of Ganesh Utsav 2013 right from the first day all the way till Visarjan. Most of the footage is shot hand-held except for a few shots. The footage was edited in OpenShot Video Editor which is a breeze to work with. The sound-track used is “Mourya Re” from the bollywood film Don. Enjoy the video. :-)
Getting sharper photographs is one of the most fundamental aim of all photographers. The sharpness of the photograph is determined by a number of factors like – Camera holding technique, Shutter-Speed, Aperture etc. However, the most basic factor which is often overlooked is the camera holding(stabilizing) technique. There are many ways people hold their camera, while some help in getting stable sharper shots other may actually induce shake(blur) into the photos. This can be remedied by using a ‘tripod’ – a three legged stand in a layman’s term. But wait, there is even his smaller sibling, ‘monopod’ – you got that right, it has just a single leg. So out of the two which one is the best for getting sharp stable shots? This question has a tricky answer as you’ll find out soon.
Video Recording is the new in-thing in DSLR cameras. The feature has found many takers & its capable of producing some fantastic footage. If you’re one of the enthusiast film-maker who bought/will buy DSLR primarily for video recording then better know what else you’ll require to produce a captivating video apart from camera.
