Rohit Ravi‘s works are an inspiration. When I talked to him for an interview, I had forgotten to ask the details of this shot. Amends made now.
This image was shot at Cherai Beach,Cochin on new year day morning. We started the shoot early in the morning and this was one of the last shots at around 9AM.
The camera was set on manual exposure – 1/250, f/7.1 and ISO 100. Flash was set off-camera using Yongnuo 622C HSS trigger and my assistant was pointing it at the couple. I used a Camera 6D with 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for this photo.
Before beginning, I would like to narrate an incident. All of us know that the song ‘Jai Ho’ is composed by A R Rahman. We also know that the song appears during the closing credits of Danny Boyle directed, eight OSCAR winner film ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’
But do you know who choreographed this song? The answer is Longinus Fernandes and his name is left out in the end credits of the film.
“There’s one guy I should mention, we’ve mentioned a lot of people, I forgot the guy who choreographed the dance at the end of the film, he’s called Longinus [Fernandes] and I forgot him off the credits, and I only found out about it two weeks ago. I’m an idiot… and I apologize from the bottom of my heart Longinus”.
This is how Danny Boyle made up with Longinus while receiving his Oscar for Best Direction.
Why I am saying this here? Because, like Longinus Fernandes, I also had an experience.
You know that I was unhappy over the fact that CyberPark Kozhikode is using my logo for some time without my knowledge. When I accidentally found this goof-up a month ago, I contacted the authorities and I was promised that they are working on a plan to recognize my success in the competition.
I am very happy to inform that CyberPark officials recognized me as the ‘Designer of CyberPark Logo.’

A surprise on 21-Apr-2010
I was reading the newspaper ‘Malayala Manorama’ and trying to have an afternoon nap. On the ‘Opportunities’ page, I saw the following advertisement.
The logo looked very familiar. Then I realised – it is my own design! I designed this logo as a part of a competition organised by TechnoPark Trivandrum, some 18 months ago. Since then I have never heard from the authorities about the contest results or the fact that that my logo is being used by them for about a year.
This post is about the experience of designing a logo for CyberPark Kozhikode. CyberPark is a Government of Kerala organization planned in the lines of Technopark at Thiruvananthapuram and Infopark in Kochi to build, operate and manage ITparks for the promotion and development of investment in IT and ITES industries in Malabar region of Kerala.
