How Phone Photography Changed The Way I Compose

Though my phone has been my primary camera for a few years now (and by that I mean what I shoot most with), I’ve always used it on-the-go. Most phone cameras till recently were meant for just that. Wide-camera shots, with lot of editing required. So it fit travel really well, but not much else….

Why I Stopped Carrying My DSLR Everywhere

I bought my first DSLR in 2007. It became my faithful companion on every single trip I took after that – be it on out of town or an evening out with friends. I carried it to the beach, clubs, restaurants and even just out for a walk. Looking back, I can say that I…

Best 12 of the Year: 2016

Norman Parkinson

It was absolutely empty and the guard on duty reluctantly switched on the lights and the light sitar music. The Norman Parkison Exhibition at Tasveer Art Gallery. It had been a long time since I stepped into an art gallery. Exhibitions seemed a little boring, particularly minus the discussions, which I could never make it to. I…
