That desi girl πŸ˜

Howdy!! Seems long time since I have been posting here regularly 😏 Well, I guess my uncomfortable schedules over and I am back. Well, from the beginning of WordPress, I had this feeling of “should post some fashion photoshoot”.. I love photography, infact who won’t. The inner backlog is I don’t find myself lovable so no selfies, no captures but the zeal to post few posts over fashion doesn’t ended. Here is the result of that πŸ˜‚ Meet Pallavi, an instagrammer who I choose as an icon to fashion n styling these days.

She’s good looking, there is no doubt to admit that but the choice of selection and the lens captured makes this really elegance. This is my fav photo in her complete profile, looks like a fairy πŸ˜‡

In a post she mentioned these are her companions πŸ‘» Enough for a girl right !!

Happy Dhanteras! Let the festivities begin πŸ™‚

Weddings are the time when you get to be the royalty you are, unabashedly! As I'm prepping for weddings in the family (yay!!), I've been looking for perfect attire. That, of course, comes with jewellery. Lost my heart to this #RivaahBridesByTanishq set. Stunning workmanship and absolutely beautiful design. The set is layered making it way more multipurpose and that, I think, is its winning charm. You can wear it all together, or as individual pieces for lighter look. The entire collection is a beautiful harmony of jewellery that fits every kind of bride – modern, traditional, and from any region of nation too! For every ceremony, there's something that will work. And years later, your daughter will thank you for an heirloom piece too πŸ’“ You like?? #Tanishq #Wedding #Bride #jewelry #Gold #indian #traditional #shine

And here there are 2 pics where the description made my glued over the pics 😘

She got many eyes behind the lens. Thanks to them, not for snapping her but the passion towards photography. Blimey they’re really ground to earth and not at all like craving for promotions. There is a man, @siddharthmukund who shared that few pics were taken even on mobiles like OnePlus 3T, Gionee, Samsung S8.. Pretty incredible in output right!!
Especially this “wake up sid” guy pictures in a different perception.. Have a look ✌

And another guy is @tarunchawla, you can find his snaps here.. Really admirable.. 

I know one may say ” If I got a DSLR, I can click like that too” – Dude!! It’s the POV I’m saying and the passion/love/enjoyment they are experiencing while doing that work 😘

Finally, the guy I’m jealous and the backbone I got through her wall. Meet @amreekan.. Perfectly blends the natural photography and heritage/culture in most of his snaps πŸ˜‹

What’s makes me so connecting is the passion for travel and photography. Wish someday I’ll post my clicks over fashion too ✌

Until then, be my audience πŸ™

Instant Camera

Instant camera.. 90’s kids knew it very well.. Often found at Tourist spots and Festivals.. It’s been long time since peopleΒ forgot this..Β Thanks to Bollywood and Passionate Photographers who brought them into limelight again πŸ™‚

instax-camera

Well, here is the scenario.. You got a place when you want to capture your loved one’s expression instantly, Instant camera works.Β If you hate the fumbling over phone or if you hate the fact that Β you can’t physically touch the photo, Instant camera takes the place πŸ™‚ Click and See β™₯

The instant camera is a type of camera which uses self-developing film to create a chemically developed print shortly after taking the picture. Polaroid Corporation pioneered (and patented) consumer friendly instant cameras and film, and were followed by various other manufacturers.

Polaroid and Fujifilm are two brands that are popular in the market. Insta X Mini 8 is trending now for various reasons although Polaroid has its own genre of followers and Fujifilm has its own brand πŸ™‚

Polaroid has unveiled a new version of that old-school Polaroid camera called the 300 Instant Camera. The 300 prints photos that are business card size, just like the PoGo printer Polaroid has been offering for a while.

How it would be if you use an instant camera? Well, the pictures are short like card size and of great quality. The best part is most of the cameras are affordable, user-friendly and instant snaps without hassle. Here is a set of photos which attract undoubtedly and make it your habit :*

Even the reviews are good for your bucks and the pictures taken by the users in real were outstanding.. Rs.5,000/- ? Budget mobile price but this passion and fun will not be attained in those smartphones.. Especially, for those who love to live differently and “seize the moment” mindset people this is it for you..

Cons would be the film cost only.. 20 films costs around Rs.1,000/- and that was slightly high. If we can seek any alternative for the film, then this would be great gift to ourselves ^_^

DSLR 😎 Basics of Photography

​Basics .. Core concept need to be known behind every action and in this New year, we here by starting it. Ranting over some our favorite interests, styles and passion. Thus, the first post under basics is the “DSLR Photography”

Photography!! Personally, we feel everything should be captured virtually over pics or in memories. Seizing and reminiscing is really important in our lives. Above that, pictures and the moments while capturing those memories could be really special with loved ones more πŸ˜‰ Here you go for the basic information needed to be known before buying a DSLR.

Why DSLR Camera? Why not Point & Shoot Camera? To simply cut it out, better quality pictures in less quantity of time with less practice is possible over DSLR only. Since we all have our smartphones, pics captured with our 13mp/8mp smart phones doesn’t make much difference with those pictures captured from Point & Shoot Camera.

DSLR Camera (Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera) – This term makes all of us crazy, these days every one is holding it and making so much gala over it πŸ˜› Lets begin and give a try over it soon πŸ™‚ (Perfection needs in every aspect and basics are the foundation for the perfection)

Exposure Triangle 

Exposure triangle includes three regions: Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO. All those three combines to give a perfect outcome πŸ™‚

  • Aperture : It is the diameter of the lens through which light is entered. Variation in the aperture, focus of the light varies as if when the shutter is opened, the larger the aperture – more light passes through.

aperture-scale-depth-of-field

If someone is supposed to capture a landscape covering far away hill or something,  then you should suppose to opt low aperture which eventually falls under large aperture capturing whole scene with utmost focus on the foreground and gradually decreasing over the background.

Learn How to Use a DSLR: landscape taken at small aperture

Similarly if something has to be captured at a shorter distance, it would be through high aperture and the subject is in sharp focus while the background is soft and out of focus.

large aperture

Shutter speed: The shutter speed, measured in seconds (or more often fractions of a second), is the amount of time the shutter stays open when taking a photograph. The longer the shutter stays open, the more light passes through to the sensor to be captured.

Shutter speeds are selected depending upon the kind of picture we are intended to capture. Tiny shutter speed should be opted for fast moving objects and vice versa. For example: (1/4000) for sports photography to really slow (30 seconds) for night photography

ISO : This is the behaviour of the camera’s sensor to the light. Higher range of ISO (ISO 6400) is needed where less light is required likely on the sunny mornings this will give you images of the highest quality, with very little grain (or noise).. 

And low ISO (ISO 100) is needed on dark evenings. As you turn the ISO number up, you increase the exposure but, at the same time, the image quality decreases; there will be more digital noise or β€œgrain”
Shooting Modes : Full-Auto, Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed Prioirty, Manual Mode are few modes in shooting.

Average – The camera will assess the tones across the entire image form corner to corner, and expose the scene to 18% grey from that assessment.
Centre-weighted – The camera weights the exposure reading for the area in the centre of the viewfinder that can total up to approximately 80% of the scene, ignoring the extreme corners of the image.

Spot metering – The camera will use a very small area of the scene, typically a small circle in the centre of the viewfinder that totals approximately 5% of the viewfinder area. It will make the assessment of dark/light tones in this area and expose the entire scene to 18% grey, from that assessment.

Metering modes : These are to tell your camera how you want it to look at a scene.
When taking a photograph, using any form of automatic exposure calculation (e.g. aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, auto-ISO etc) the camera always tries to calculate an β€˜average’ exposure. It will asses the entire scene, both light and dark areas, and determine the exposure so that all of the tones within the entire image average to 18% grey – called the β€˜middle’ grey. This is known as metering, and it is the reason that if you point your camera at a bright white scene, such as after it has snowed, and take a photograph the resulting image will always appear darker than you or I see it.

Similarly, if you point your camera at a really dark scene, such as a low-lit room, and take a photograph the resulting image will always be brighter than you or I see it.

The scene is always being averaged by the camera and most of the time that results in the image appearing to be correctly exposed. However, you can control what areas of the scene are being assessed by the camera in order to influence the way in which the exposure is metered.

The photo below was taken on spot metering mode but, if you were to take the same photo using evaluative mode, you would end up with a completely different exposure.

Exposure: Generally found on a small +/- button near the shutter, this is one of the most useful functions to learn how to use. It allows you to either increase or decrease the cameras default meter reading to account for the actual brightness of a scene. If a scene contains primarily bright tones and is being rendered too dark, for example, a bright white snow scene evbutton.jpg (that will typically be reduced to 18% grey by the default metering system), you can apply positive exposure compensation to let the camera know that the scene should be lighter than middle grey.

For beginners Nikon D3300 is suggested. It will come with 18-55mm lens and is slightly costly @25000/- in Amazon
