Langkawi – Places to visit

On April 13, 2012, in Blog, Gallery, Nature, People and Places, Photography, Travel, by Amiya

The previous weekend was a long one, so we (me and my flatmates) planned a trip to Kedah Langkawi located in the Andaman sea some 30 Km from the coast of Malaysia. Best way to reach there is by air – but that is if you can afford the tickets. Langkawi being a prime destination for honeymoon couples is a comparatively (compared to other parts of Malaysia) costly place.

Sembawang Park, Singapore

On January 29, 2012, in Gallery, Nature, People and Places, by Amiya

I normally go to the city center for photo shoots, but this time I wanted to see something new. So I headed towards Sembawang MRT. Sembawang park which is 10 minutes from the MRT (via bus 882) is relatively small and peaceful park with a small beach. It is on the north overlooking Malaysia ( you can actually swim across if you can survive the coast guards 😛 ). I saw a good number of people camping around. In my opinion it has its own distinctiveness, it is much better compared to the crowded east or west coast park. Moreover the close-by areas have a downtown look to them, which has its own charm.

Mahabaleshwar, panchgani road trip

On January 19, 2012, in Blog, Gallery, Nature, People and Places, Travel, by Amiya

Back home in India, took a short trip to Mahabaleshwar, some 250 Kms from Mumbai. It has some wonderful resorts and breathtaking landscape. Most of the points are close to each other. The points looking over Krishna river are magnificent. There is a small lake (Venna lake) as well and some spots are good for trekking as well. Close to Mahabaleshwar is Panchgani and Pratapgad fort which are a must watch.

f-stops simplified: a practical guide to photography

On September 17, 2011, in Gallery, Photography, Video, by Amiya

The general concept of stops is central to photography, yet most articles lay it out in excruciating details or are just too simplistic in their analysis. This is an attempt to keep the technicalities to a minimum while still explaining the relevant facts.

Who let the cats out?

On September 14, 2011, in Blog, Entertainment, Gallery, irregular, Nature, People and Places, by Amiya

In the recent trip to Tioman Islands in Malaysia we were bombarded with an army of lazy, hungry and depressed cats. Though I love cats and generally prefer them to dogs, these were really irritating and really pissed us off time and again. One time when we were having dinner a very pregnant cat just jumped around the table and made it impossible to eat. We didn’t have the guts to kick her; the last thing we wanted is a cat delivering half a dozen babies on our dinner table!! Finally when the waiter came to shoo it off it just dropped flat on floor signalling very clearly that she was in no mood to leave without food. To keep the memories alive here are a few shots of those inglorious bastards.

Your Life in 3 photos – Canon snap your life contest

On July 4, 2011, in Abstract, Black and White, Gallery, People and Places, by Amiya

The Canon snap your life contest was on. The task was to capture your life in three photos along with a slogan and two winners stand the chance to win EOS 1100D DSLR. I thought of participating mainly because many of the entries were off-topic and I though I have some chance of making it through. You may check out the entries here: http://www.canon-asia.com/snapyourlife_contest/ The first two pics were not that difficult, though the last one took good deal of time and experimentation. Its a super long shot taken in completely dark background with occasional flashes of light to expose the subject. To be clear it is a single shot and no editing has been done.
