Happiness Within

At farmhouse I asked this little boy to do something interesting and this was what all he got.

I was on my way back from Bangalore to Delhi in the month of august, when the fear of swine flu had just gripped the whole country. With the precautionary mask on my face had nothing more worthwhile to do than using my cam. Started with the countryside landscape outside the moving train but was soon bored off, interestingly this small boy, who was witnessing all my photographic activities came to me asked to shoot him! After a few shots he threw himself at the door of the boogie, half hanging in air, though was terrified a bit but still excited. The expression on his face was a mixture of both!

The boy bewildered, puzzling over those incense sticks as my grandma offers her morning prayers to the Sun.

Tips for great Pictures!!

Look your subject in the eye

Direct eye contact can be as engaging in a picture as it is in real life. When taking a picture of someone, hold the camera at the person's eye level to unleash the power of those magnetic gazes and mesmerizing smiles. For children, that means stooping to their level. And your subject need not always stare at the camera. All by itself that eye level angle will create a personal and inviting feeling that pulls you into the picture.

Use a plain background

A plain background shows off the subject you are photographing. When you look through the camera viewfinder, force yourself to study the area surrounding your subject. Make sure no poles grow from the head of your favorite niece and that no cars seem to dangle from her ears.

Use flash outdoors

Bright sun can create unattractive deep facial shadows. Eliminate the shadows by using your flash to lighten the face. When taking people pictures on sunny days, turn your flash on. You may have a choice of fill-flash mode or full-flash mode. If the person is within five feet, use the fill-flash mode; beyond five feet, the full-power mode may be required. With a digital camera, use the picture display panel to review the results.
The flash will brighten up people's faces and make them stand out. Also take a picture without the flash, because the soft light of overcast days sometimes gives quite pleasing results by itself.

Auto focus problems

Sometimes the object for focus is too small compared to its background, for example you are trying to focus onto a single thin and tiny leaf, the camera may not be able to auto-focus on it. So place fist or any other object nearby the leaf and allow the camera to auto-focus at that position. Thereafter remove the object and click your shot!! I took snapped those red-ants on the orchids in a similar way.
