So I had promised you all that I will uploading some photos soon. But instead of uploading it here, I’m sharing my flickr link, pleesh pleesh pleesh check out my pictures, fave them (if you like them) and comment?
Okay as promised in the previous post, I’m back again with another post. Well, this is a first.
So you all might now know that I have moved to Bangalore and the person who misses me the most other than my family is Doobai Zoo (Yes, that’s my best friend’s name, and of course I’m a drama queen so my friend’s gotta have a different name). So yeah, this girl who is extremely talented and chirpy and loves Japan more than herself is my best friend.
Posing with one of the few people who can handle me 🙂
Well she was quite upset that I was leaving, but then we gotta March on ( All the Christites will know about it). And in Bangalore I met Pants and Eggs. Two completely crazy, bubbly girls filled with life, someone whom I started to like and connect after Zoo.
Being with them actually makes me happy because none of us think before we talk and we just start up random conversations. Now I’m lazy to type anymore so I’ll be posting about our shenanigans latah! Till then buh bye!!!
So its been almost a year since my last post where I told you that I will be uploading pictures from my last visit to India. Well, you might have just come to the conclusion that I’m just another lazy A**. But a lot of things happened after My vacation last year. First, a job that made me realize the value of time. Second, my decision to move to India to do my Masters in Mass Communication at Christ University.
Bengaluru, Namma Bengaluru. The the place I will be staying for the next two years (hopefully) till I complete my Masters degree. Moving to Bangalore from Abu Dhabi was like a whole transplantation for me. I was like a plant that was uprooted and planted elsewhere in the hope that I would grow and blossom again.
And so I reached Bangalore in June in hopes of starting a new phase of my life. To be honest the city freaked me out. Now you may wonder why would my own country freak me out; well firstly we have the traffic which is simply crazy. The cars hopping from one lane to another, new lanes being made by the ‘two-wheelers’ and the people abusing each other at every five minutes. Please don’t think that I’m the spoilt brat complaining about how bad my country is- No, as someone who grew up watching the traffic go in a very peaceful order and where most of the people followed the rules this was something new to adjust.
One incredible thing about Bangalore is that this city is indeed very welcoming. Language is not a problem in Bangalore- trust me on this, you WILL find someone who speaks your mother tongue here. But beware of the Auto Wallas and the Bus conductors. One lesson I learnt a week after coming here is that fix the price before you get in an auto; otherwise you might end up paying a hefty price. And oh! the bus conductors who reaches every nook and corner in the bus (even if the bus is crowded up to a point where you can’t even breathe properly). Don’t forget to follow up for your change as they tend to ‘forget’ to return your money.
As someone who grew up in a multi-cultural society, this shift was not that different. I meet people from different places and we all get together well. There is something about Bangalore that makes you stay here. Maybe it’s the climate (it’s more unpredictable than a woman) or the fact that it’s a cultural hub (totally love the ethnic diversity here) or the truth that this beautiful city is home to thousands of ‘youngsters’ like me who came here leaving their families and home to make a life.
Next post : About my new Uni, new friends and the changes the decision to move to India brought in me. And of course Pictures!
I love experimenting Time lapse and Long exposure photography. And these two categories require a lot of PATIENCE to get the best results and yes as usual the first few tries might be a failure but you need to keep trying till you get a good shot. As for time lapse, the first and the last thing is PATIENCE. You might have to click more than 500 or 1000 pictures, edit them and then make them into a movie. Easy ha? No, imagine setting up your camera, waiting for hours to get the pictures, spending hours on editing them and then making them into a movie, its not something that is easy. Anyways, below is my FIRST experiment in timelapse. This was done one night when I was stuck at home and was pretty much jobless. I clicked 250 pictures and then made a movie( I know 250 is way too less, I promise I will make a better and a longer one soon)
Technical info :
Camera- Canon EOS 1000d
Exposure: f/3.5, 1/5 sec., ISO-800
And yes now for the long exposure picture. The picture below was taken right before i started the time lapse shoot.
Last year I had done a photo shoot for one of my closest friends Aneka Valerian Dsouza, who is a witty and crazy girl. She wanted a few pictures of hers in the traditional Kerala wear, now Aneka is one person who is obsessed with the famous Kerala saree ( the white saree with the golden border) and also very shy in front of the camera.
Check out a few pictures from the shoot!
Equipment used: Canon EOS 1000d (My very first DSLR, which I use to learn more about photography)
Post Production: Slight Colour Correction in Lightroom
Photography was originally black and white and shades of sepia. Black and white photography lets the viewer Experience the image. Unlike colour photographs, black and white photographs helps is conveying a message or a story better. And it is not … Continue reading →
