Photography is the most popular medium that captures life as it goes by. Travelling, visiting a new place, important events and tender moments; every time such incidents come up one surely feels like capturing it for posterity. A pictured shared with someone dear to you living somewhere else or simply putting your favourite picture framed in your drawing room can give you a distinct identity. But the challenge of taking a good photograph is not just being there at that very moment; it’s also about aesthetically evocative composition and choosing technically sound exposure setting and shutter speed. One has to understand the magical interplay of light, shadow and colour to create magic in a frame.
