Mehrauli, Delhi

Visited Mehrauli today, so much of history scattered around. Yog Maya Temple is said to be more than 5000 years old (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yogmaya_Temple). Then Qutub complex, plenty of Hindu, Jain and Islamic ruins scattered around, Unfortunately Wikipedia couldn’t gather more than few paragraphs for thousands years old history (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qutb_Minar).

Diwali 2017

Tried taking photos of kids in this Diwali, few tips for those who wants to try this 😀
Tips:
  • Organizing them is impossible, forget about it
  • They are quick and can burn all fireworks in minutes, you can not prevent or control it, you can only be ready to capture the right moment
  • They will not listen because to noise around and their excitement
  • Lighting changes drastically before lighting firework and after light up, better set your camera for one type of lighting, preferably after
  • Choose lens with big aperture, smaller aperture will need higher ISO and results will not be good. (I was using F-1.8)
  • You will need to hop from one place to another for right background and foreground
  • After all consideration taken, your result will not be more than 10%, I took 30 photos and satisfactory were just 3, posting below –
