Balloonwala on the street,caught in action (post no.216) to enlarge.(Balloonwallah on street)
..........THE TITLE I put here ''balloonwallah on street'' as u are learning photography. Here I used zoom lens to strengthen contrast between dark (on his face) and the balloons.....I think, what I got is well executed.....see the trumpeteer and the balloons.Next is position of the person. He is at balance with the object he is carrying, that is the reason, I put him at the one side and  balancing with the more attractive balloons. Thus I get a complete picture.
         Generally I use Aperture priority setting on my camera, that is helpful to me to read the subject and accordingly set the shutter speed....Sometimes because of low light, the shutter speed gets show, inviting shake of the picture, then I increase the aperture to let the correct light in, exposing the photo perfectly. Here meter reading is important that is built in your camera. In the beginning, u may run slow but as u are conversant with the settings, u will run, paying more attention to the photograph............................

sunset, to its extremes--I mean size.of no.

I put it in the frame and it gives unique view......naturally also we keep the sun below near the skyline.....sun at so low, still the frame is looking well balanced. The balance is the middle open space and a single crow coming a long way.....I did not want clash between the crow and the kept the crow lowest possible tone, when a viewer critically looks the picture in an exhibition or a magazine.....closure in magazine....with distance in an art show rendering a beautifully compositional look.

A portrait in low key.(post no.213)

A good face, having light from back in a verandah.....I wanted to catch highlights of his glass, nose, right temple and today's trend of having beard by the young boys.......Besides being all, I felt his face with a piece of smile worth photographing....the bg though slightly distracting is support to the though it is a park scene, yes as it is. just look long distance background......his shirt does not attract from his face that is a plus point.///////////////////Regarding posture 3/4th as usual in making a picture....the pic is in low-key tone, the highlights make good contours.

Vising Charnival is a joy and relief from the rush and noises of long car Qs, the dust, foul smell outside......This We felt when we entered the big ground full of children riding horses, camels, and various items with baloons to swings, riding on plastic horses....I felt I came to a wonderland
where there are lot of eatables in different stalls......just mouthwatering.....the teacher were bust in looking afters the arrangements going on smoothly.
What Madam, the items are finished....the people had to obey their tinytots. for Idli, dosa,samosas,chats etc. Patents,as I observed were carefree too to fulfil the demands of children.
There were elders too, came on the wishes of their grand children, and do u imagine the happiness of the good old person. I think cannot be expressed in words.......good luck...more to come

PORTRAITING....most tender and powerful subject.(post no.210) (post no..

Human portrait is the easiest subjects.....they are all around u.....exploit every opportunity to grab some impressional shots to record/albums to show friends and getting published in newspapers/magazines......

2. WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT IN PORTRAITS, JUST CHECK,  i.e. EXPRESSIONS, EMOTIONS, Body language, moods, sensuality, and moments......They are best taken indoors and outdoors....Every photographer has his own choice....u may be different from me.

3. THE FIRST THING TO REMEMBER WHILE TAKING portraits outdoor is to use  the background to the best advantage......The important thing to remember that the subject does not remain as a secondary unit......Keeping the subject at right position will pay dividends.....A large aperture will control the depth-of-field and help throw the background out of focus. A small aperture will produce a greater d-o-f. than a large one and therefore have background details which would distract the audience.

4. I GENERALLY  keep my aperture fixed at f5,6, a good middle aperture keeping u satisfied in all conditions except the dark ones. However, it still needs to be used judiciously as per the subject, controlling depth of field.................You see in the above available light photograph at f5.6 controlling the d-o-f, between me and the guy with good night light is at its best......lacking right sid lighting would have killed the portraiture effect. His attention is at right angle with sober mood and side powerful lighting segregating his face from bg.....The background was out of focus, which I deliberately zoomed lightly to put more further attention on him. He was unaware when I took the pic. His red T-shirt is another attention holding object and move the eyes fully on him....The picture was taken at night supported by available light, general and spots....This is almost near to street photography.

SALMAN TO LAUNCH ''SMART PHONES'' against Xiaomi, Vivo(post no.830)

Bollywood star Salman Khan is delving into a new venture and this time it's asmartphone business. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dabangg starrer who also owns the Being Human clothing brand has reportedly registered 'Being Smart' trademark for his smartphone venture.
It's still unclear if he'll take a direct majority shareholding or involve his family for ownership.
He has been in talks with several investors for his venture and is building an operational management team that may be headed by an executive with leadership experience in Samsung and Micromax, reported the Economic Times.
Khan has even selected a Chinese plant for the initial models which may run on Android operating system. The report suggests that the phones will fall below the price tag of Rs 20,000.
Once kick started, Being Smart will compete with Chinese companies like Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi, according to reports.
The proceeds from the venture, like Being Human clothing line, will be directed to charity and social work carried out by the star's Being Human Foundation.
The smartphones will be sold online before it enters retail chains, or even Being Human stores.
Salman Khan had previously indicated his idea to enter the smartphonebusiness two years ago.

Close-ups and journalistic PHOTOGRAPHS(post no.208)st no.

A photo to look at.....I have cropped it to give a macro or closeup look----a general practice amongst the photographers....In this we get the essential elements out of a boring photographs.....Yes observing critically is important.....Subjects are many but to sort out and present it in a decent way makes it worth a photograph to be displayed in exhibitions......Please remember, many of the photographers shoot good pictures and are satisfied  by uploading in forums and thus carry on with the best of photographs going as waste.

My intention to explain in short to take part in exhibitions, send photographs to editors of magazines, who are always at look out for good publishable photographs,which are of public interest. Thus you can earn money too. Many amateurs and semi-professional photographers are working out at this hour for coming days/week's/or Sunday photographs to send for publications in coming issues of journals...............Just try, instead of sitting idle, thinking of money value ur photographs may earn to promoto u to go for more better photographs and to be a renowned photographer or a journalist.

-------I have a friend of since 40 years, who is at Jhansi covering the elections.....means he has good earning, when he returns with outstanding photographs for local and other journals, he will be getting good amount for his labour..................................good luck and see u next............

APERTURES IN UR HAND.....While dealing with ur camera and making it ready to shoot pictures....the knowlwdge of Apertures is essential.....what the camera is producing thru which means.......Above are the APERTURES (holes) in the camera, which are operated in combination with Shutter Speed and made of steel blades....

Top is the largest aperture the modern cameras have or old lenses had. i.e.f1.2, next the light passing capacity is reduced and the light will pass thru aperture f1.4, half of the above the number is increasing and the aperture is
                                                                           f11 and
                                                                           f64.......THEY DEPENDING OF THEIR USE on Shutter Speed and the ISO speed on camera as per the lighting Shutter speed.......continue.
