Articulating screen - is it useful in a DSLR

The above photo was posted by Sudhir Shivaram in his Facebook page. (imgae link) My interest was immediately piqued. I understand the pain of looking through the eyepiece at such low angle (think macro photos). So I wanted to know what wildlife pro photogs thought about an articulating screen.

Praveen P Mohandas – How I Made That Shot

Praveen P Mohandas explains How I Made That Shot

Earlier we have featured an interview with the talented wild life photographer, Praveen P Mohandas. His works still amazes me to no end. His works are never an insane close up of an animal; rather they convey a sense of time and space. The image above is another example of his unique vision.

Setting

“The image was made at Kole Wetlands, Thrissur, Kerala. The image was taken just after sunset with the last glow of the sun in the sky. The birds were having their last feed of the day in a small irrigation canal from where they pump water for the fields. As the pumping progresses, the fish in the canal comes to the surface and whiskered terns and egrets come in large numbers to feed on then.”

A n00b’s note on photography

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.

Anticipation

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.
