Creating A Composite Image – Total Lunar Eclipse

Creating A Composite Image – Total Lunar Eclipse

Creating A Composite Image – Total Lunar Eclipse This article is about the ‘How To’ of Creating A Composite Image – Total Lunar Eclipse. December 2011. A friend suggested we shoot the entire Lunar Eclipse against a heritage backdrop. He was connected and was able to manage the relevant permissions required to shoot after hours at the famed Qutub Minar.

Using Lightroom – A Simple Workflow

Using Lightroom – A Simple Workflow

Lightroom – A simple, yet overwhelming tool for many of us! Lightroom, with its multiple modules and huge number of options, could leave people in a state of “Oh-fuck!-What-should-I-do-with-these-numerous-sliders-and-controls!” I am attempting to de-mystify this tool in a way that most images that are decently exposed could get tackled by using this post.

Zoom Burst Photography

Zoom Burst Photography

This article has appeared in the current issue (March 2016 issue) of JetWings, the in-flight magazine of Jet Airways! The Zoom Burst Photography technique can infuse photographs with a burst of energy or dynamism; lend them an abstract, artistic quality or a sense of mystique; or create a focus or strong leading lines that draw the viewer’s eyes to the core subject. It involves zooming in or out as you click an image, which will make the subject ‘burst’ forth from the centre of the…

The Making of an Image – Image Tech

I have been commissioned to contribute regularly in their ‘Image Tech’ section that is a deep dive into how an image was created. The above double-spread is my contribution in their inaugural issue (January 2016 issue).

Getting More With Less in Travel Photography

Getting More With Less in Travel Photography

Canon India had provided me an EOS 5D SR body and an EF11-24mm f/4L USM lens for review during my Moscow visit. This combination added tremendous firepower to my arsenal. Before we see how, let’s take a look at some of the truly useful features/specifications of this camera body and lens (In case you find any of this too technical, please leave a comment and I’ll be happy to resolve the tech-query for you).
