Rameshwaram (Nov ’16)

A trip to Rameshwaram was a long pending one and I have been fascinated long to visit India’s first Sea Bridge. Fortunately, my wish fulfilled last November. Pamban Bridge is a railway bridge which connects the town of Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India. This bridge also designed to open to allow ferry movement, though I couldn’t witness this during my visit.

Bird Watching @ ECR & Test Driving Nikkor 70-300 VR II Lens – (Dec ’11)

After acquiring the Nikkor 70-300mm lens, I wanted to test drive it around Chennai. So, did a quick drive along the ECR road and the bird photographs presented here are taken in Muttukadu. Though this lens isn’t an ideal one for shooting free flying birds, I tried my best to get some shots.

Nikon D7000 Test Shots (Jul ’11)

Finally laid my hands on the most awaited gear ‘Nikon D7000’. A special thanks to my wife who has gifted this… It’s a big leap from D60 and it has got umpteen controls to use and I started loving my new gear. I got this set with 18-105mm lens & 50mm 1.8 lens for some portrait photography. I didn’t get a good sleep last night and on the road around 4 AM itself. Roamed around Marina and took some test shots.

Super Full Moon… (Mar ’11)

There was so many discussions going on for the ‘Super Full Moon’ on 19th March 2011. I decided to check out the ‘size’ of that as they are supposed to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter. But I didn’t notice any change at all (may be I am using my humble 55-200mm lens at its maximum). But anyway, it was good to watch moon on the three consecutive nights. I didn’t feel any change, but then it’s only me. So, I am sharing here the pictures taken between 18th March & 20th March.

DSLR Experiments: Experiment with Lighting

I was trying to get some other design pattern but ended up with this. Nevertheless it also looks better. Hope I will be achieving what I am aiming for.

This was shot with a light source from top (usb light source from my mini laptop). Shuttle cork was placed in a card board. It will give different pattern when you adjust distance of the light source.

Hope you all like it.

Chennai Through My Lens – Night Photographs

This photographs were taken during my visit to Chennai earlier this year. I would like to roam around the city during night time and you would get a lot of photographing opportunities. Particularly if you are interested in Night Photography and test your skills on Manual settings. Here are the few click where I tested my skills and all the photographs were taken handheld and that’s the reason for minimal exposure.

DSLR Experiments – Close-up lens

This shot was taken using a close-up lens set I bought from e-Bay. Haven’t experimented much with these items. From my experience I would say it’s not a bad idea to shoot macro with these close-up lens.
