Learning to play with birds

I'm experimenting with Nikkor AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED and what could be better than trying this telephoto zoom lens on bird photography? This lens in my hand and my hand in bird photography - both are new to me. Very clearly I realized that this is the field of photography where I need most sincere patience to capture quality.


I did not tried though that seriously, I did not went outside for my so far venture in this area. All the snaps I captured either through my window or from rooftop of my room; need to get rid of this laziness soon.








These are what I achieved so far, hope to learn more and more in coming days.

From Mumbai to Delhi by Rajdhani

Mumbai - the city which helped me becoming what I'm now. After 3 long years, I have been there recently. Old friends, familiar roads and places, good communication (specifically the local train), hospitality, the best auto/taxi culture and many more - all these are there in Mumbai for my 'Welcome' sake.

I was down with health issues in this 3 days/2 nights trip. Many plans were not met. The drama became sweaty due to traffic congestion and I almost missed my train. Thank god, I was just in time and departed safely from Mumbai. Destination Delhi.

On the way to Delhi, I received a gift from the setting sun of Mumbai - a picturesque sunset and I was quick with my mobile.

To conclude - the trip was not that disappointing.

An Indian Bride

NOTE: I'm not taking interest in wedding photography neither I want to turn myself as a wedding photographer.

One of my childhood friends recently got married (very stupid act!) and she asked me to capture few candid shots of her marriage. I agreed and gave it a try, I also tried the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G on this occasion for the first time since it was purchased.

Back after 9 months

Good evening friends, hope all of you are in good health.

I was absent from this world since last few months due to some personal venture; things are partially wrapped now and I finally get the time to be in touch with my beloved photography. I abandoned my gears for last 9 months and they showed their anger - my Lexar 64GB (class 10) card is dead permanently. Hopefully this won't happen again.


After the long break, it is time to click something. I tried the Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF ED VR for the first time since it was purchased almost a year back.
