After two years since owning my first DSLR, I am slowly realizing the mistakes (the simple ones) that I made while making my purchase.
I hope the following notes will help you keep away from making the same mistakes.
When I was making my purchase of a DSLR, I was least worried about memory cards. I just went with whatever card the seller gave me. My only consideration at that point in time was the storage capacity of the card.
I regret that now. Because I completely overlooked the speed aspect.
John Pedersen has been a photography and visual arts enthusiast for as long as he can remember. Photography is a medium for him to portray how he feels and sees the world around him. A completely self-taught photographer, he is constantly pushing himself to “see” what others have failed to see. Needless to say, whenever John comes back from his travels, it is a feast for our eyes.
In this discussion, John discusses his passion, technique and observations on his photography.

The other day I stumbled upon a cool gadget called Ring Flash.
These flashes, as the name suggests, produce a circular flash of light. Its most important characteristic is providing even illumination with few shadows visible in the photograph, as the origin of the light is very close to (and surrounds) the optical axis of the lens.
Ring flashes are popular among fashion, macro and portrait photographers.
There are two models that caught my eye.
Which photo do you like better – the top one or the bottom one?
Recently I was having a conversation about D90 with a friend of mine who also owns one. It came as a surprise to me when I learned that he was missing out on some of the biggest features D90 offered. Here is a compilation of the things that we discussed.
The very first thing this body has in store for you is DOF Preview button on the front side of the body towards the right side of the lens.
Pressing this button will tell the camera to set the aperture at the selected level, allowing you to see what the shot will look like in the view finder – particularly the depth of field. This enables you to see how much of your image is in focus sharply.

Sreeraj Rajendran is a self-confessed “nerd” who is currently doing postgraduate study at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. He got hooked to photography influenced allegedly by the devil himself. Follow his Flickr stream here.
I am just an absolute beginner in the field of photography. I am neither an artist nor had a passion for photography. Most of my friends ask me, “How come a techie like you jumped into the world of photography? “ It would be a nice lie if I tell them, “I was very much interested in photography from my childhood. Now I got an opportunity.”
But in reality, photography is about enjoying the moments that I see and sharing the same feel to my friends without losing its natural flavor.
Let me explain some of the good qualities that photography brings to your life.
You will really start analysing moments in life and foresee some of them. During a train journey you may start playing with a kid sitting nearby, who was a perfect stranger five minutes ago and in the next moment you will start predicting when she/he is going to give a cute smile which will become an awesome portrait in your collection.
