Spooky!



Scary? Good. Here goes:
I was reading Reader's digest book INTO THE UNKNOWN and came across a section about ghosts. I saw many photographs similar to the one above and the photographers claimed that they hadnt quite seen any shadowy figures when they clicked. So wanted to try out something by myself and here's the result..I feel its good. This was developed on Fuji Slides Sensia 100, programmed exposure and no digital manipulation, no shadow play...I used a simple camera trick - Multiple exposure. When I procured my camera in Dec 04, I was going through the features of it and came across Multiple exposure...without understanding the concept I shot a few pictures and ended up with transparent objects..so when I read this article, I immediately knew how to achieve it. I made my friend Mahesh sleep for a few minutes without itching a muscle..took his photograph, wrapped myself in my mom's saree and sat beside him and exposed the same film again. So here I am, the new age Phantom, the ghost who blogs ;-)

Tales from the African Jungle...

I thought I had captured one of the most dramatic sunsets...


when this happened...


and I was lucky to spot a lioness on the prowl...


and finally a rhino gave me what I was looking for.



Please do go through the DAY SHOT before you comment.

Light & shadow and on Outlook's book on treks in India.... Posted by Hello


The book on trekking in India is out in the stands...on the brighter side, two guys whose work I always admired are featured...Vivek has written an article about Kanoor fort and needless to say, he has gone about it in a very professional way as always.Thanks Vivek for providing such a detailed route for the fort..and you can also find a photograph of Kishori in the same article...you can find lots of stuff about that place in Kishori's and Vivek's blog..and that's how I came to know about the world of blogging. Congratz guys. On a darker note, three of the most famous trails of Karnataka, Kumaraparvata, Kuduremukh, Narasimha parvata are not featured. Maybe the editor wanted to cover all grades of difficulty from toughest to the easiest and so might have omitted these three..anyways all you trekking enthusiasts, time to grab your copy :)

I have started experimenting with indoor lighting and this is the first from the series...thats my brother and he's actually posing for me :)
