I recently subscribed to the Digital Photography school blog & was fascinated by the different techniques that they have shared there. They have this assignments for the week where they expose us to the different settings & methods to create wonders using your camera.

This one was taken as a black & white with an ISO setting of 1600 in the twilight to introduce a certain level of grain in the photo.

Anticipation - For a better tomorrow!

Artwork - Painting or Photography

I was talking to a friend of mine whom I reconnected after a very long time (thanks to Orkut & Linked In), who himself is an artist & he was commenting about my photos in this blog. While I got more than a couple of constructive feedback on how can I improvise the composition and the lighting, he asked me this question out of nowhere...

Have somebody told you that a beautiful piece of work in photography has to be on precision focus on a certain object? Why not try to explore the canvas like a painter? Why not make use of the longer exposure and lightng to your advantage to make a beautiful piece of work?

I tried this on a rainy February evening, in the twilght, with a longer exposure & a smaller F-stop, & purposely made a brush motion during the exposure. I think it came out beautiful, though it does not fit into the 4 walls of photography rules...

Exposure: 1/2 Sec
Aperture: f/25

A snow storm on its way

This photo was taken on the 10th of Feb 2008, Sunday using my Nikon D50 at 5:30 PM. A snow storm was predicted and the skies started darkening out - And I did not miss the opportunity to click a few and this came out as a good shot.

Aperture: f/5.6
