Panchchuli Sunset and Moonrise Time-Lapse

I had wanted to visit Munsiyari for a long time; however it wasn’t until March this year that I eventually managed to visit it. While I posted a travelogue of my trip to Munsiyari, I held back a few things. Namely the time-lapse and the video interview I shot in […]

Canon EOS1300D, hands on review

Yesterday at Canon India’s Ready With EOS1300D blogger event, I got a chance to try out the newly introduced Canon 1300D, Canon’s latest entry level DSLR. I had started my DSLR journey with Canon 1000D 5 and a half years ago, and holding the 1300D in hand today makes me […]

EXIF does not matter!

EXIF does not matter!

If you are like me, who regularly posts images in photography groups, you will invariably end up in a situation where other photography enthusiasts will ask you the EXIF i.e. the exposure setting of the image you have shared. In the beginning I guess I too was guilty of the […]

Temples of Kumaon

I don’t know if it was the story of a Kuldevi Temple located deep in the forest or the numerous small temples I saw during my recent trips to Kumaon or a combination of both or something else. However sitting alone in my room in Leh last month, I knew […]

Philosophy of Photography

I get routinely asked by people to teach them photography and even though I usually used to decline politely, it seems I will likely start conducting photography workshops in the near future. And before I start doing that, I wanted to explain to my future students that while I can […]

When Rajasthan trumped Ladakh!

When Rajasthan trumped Ladakh!

For a moment I can’t believe I am writing these words, but on the other hand I cannot help but write this, as I strongly feel I have found a place which managed to trump Ladakh in scenic beauty! And surprisingly enough, it is none other than Rajasthan. As I […]

Kingston Professional 256GB SD Card Review

My camera now has as much flash storage as base model of 15” MacBook Pro; this is the first thing that came to my mind, when I inserted Kingston’s Professional 256GB SDXC memory card in my camera! What is even more interesting is the fact that such mammoth capacity is […]

Salil using Sony A7r

Sony A7r and The Mirrorless Brigade…

I have never been a fan of mirrorless cameras and I have always believed that while SLTs are a good option, smaller mirrorless bodies just don’t make sense (more on this later). That opinion of mine got somewhat changed when Sony came out with A7 and A7r, full frame mirrorless […]
