In my last blog, I talked about leading lines. This blog let us find diagonal lines. Diagonal lines generally work well to draw the eye of an image’s viewer through the photograph. They create points of interest as they intersect with other lines and often give images depth by suggesting perspective. Different studies have been ... Read moreDiagonal Lines
If the frame is your window on the world, the composition is where you point it. The “Frame Within a Frame” basically pushes you to find boundaries within boundaries. In Angkor Wat, Cambodia I found this boy was shy and was trying to escape getting captured by me. So I jumped ahead and pre-focused the ... Read moreFrame Within a Frame
The “eye flow” in a photo is the path the viewer’s eyes take as they enter the image, studies it, and leads eye within the picture. The longer the photographer gets the viewer to study the image, the more it proves the photographer’s use of lines was handled well. The strategic use of lines can ... Read moreThe S Curve
Lightroom is one of my preferred tools to stitch panoramic images. In the past one would have to either use Adobe Photoshop or third-party software such as PTGui to stitch panoramas, with the latest versions of Lightroom, one can easily stitch a single row or multi-row panoramas directly from Lightroom. In this article, I will ... Read moreCreate Panoramas in Lightroom
The Rule of Thirds one of the first things that budding digital photographers learn about in composition on photography. Many thank this rule for their well balanced and interesting shots. However, that rules are meant to be broken and ignoring this one doesn’t mean your images are necessarily unbalanced or uninteresting. As a quote which ... Read moreRule of Thirds
Patterns are simply repeated shapes, colours or objects, ordered in either regular or irregular formations. As a photographer, using pattern is key to good composition and, when used effectively, can transform an otherwise bland image into something dramatic and eye-catching. Patterns are formulated all around us – in both natural and man-made settings. The key ... Read morePatterns
Last month (April 2018) I and my family travelled to Europe to visit Barcelona, Milan and Istanbul. The first leg of the journey was from Mangalore Airport to Mumbai Chhatrapathi Shivaji Terminus International Airport. Jaya He Museum at the Mumbai International Airport spans across Terminal 2. It is a must-see landmark initiative to provides the ... Read moreTerminal 2 Jaya He Museum Part 1
There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature. Therefore, buildings must have no straight lines or sharp corners. ~ Antoni Gaudi I always wanted to visit Barcelona mainly for the works of Antoni Gaudi – the figurehead of Catalan Modernism. His style is distinctive, to say the least! And expressive. I and my ... Read moreAbode of Gaudi – Barcelona Part 1
For our second day in Barcelona, we wanted to explore Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic) which is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. We took the metro from Diagonal metro station closest to our hostel and within 2 stops reached Liceu (Green Line, L3). Coming out of the metro station we were greeted by ...

After visiting the Gothic Quarter, which I covered in my earlier blog, we had our lunch at a restaurant at OBE restaurant on Plaça de Santa Caterina. Very good food, fabulous service and reasonable prices. Friendly staff with a fine understanding of English along with English menus made both our stomach and heart full. European ...

In 2014 Tamron built a very affordable super telephoto zoom lens – SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC USD which I was fortunate to review here. The lens was an instant success and spawned a whole new class of similar focal range portable long telephoto zoom lenses. In 2017 Tamron launched the second generation of that lens ...

Our third day at Barcelona was a Sunday. On Sunday Barcelona markets & most shops are more or less closed except few tourist shops along with few bakeries and pastry shops. On searching for information, we found Maremàgnum mall and some flea markets are open on that day. So we planned to visit Columbus Monument, ... Read moreAbode of Gaudi – Barcelona Part 4

Online Ticket was tough to get as it was being Sunday, there was quite a rush of tourists. So around 6 PM local time we could get into the church. We ... Read moreAbode of Gaudi – Barcelona Part 5
