Buckingham Fountain – Chicago

This saturday we went on a eve stroll at downtown Chicago and this image was taken during our casual eve stroll. When we arrived to this fountain, we saw that the music was playing and the fountain was raising and falling acc to the music. There was a huge crowd in front of it and when I tried to click one decent pic ,I was getting all peoples heads in my image. So decided to check the other side where the crowd was less and to be honest the least explored side was the best side. I got a complete view of the fountain with the skyline as the backdrop. I set my tripod, relaxed and while enjoying the spectacular show I took my time in framing the image with the entire chicago downtown view.

Tech info : This image is a panoramic stitch of 2 individual long exposure images. check this link for a better clarity image.

Ok folks, Signing off for tonight. GN / GM guys..


The Company

In our recent 3 day caming trip, we had all the worlds time for ourselves and I had an awesome time. That set my mind off to think, what makes a trip wonderful & memorable?, which makes you keep thinking of it even after a week passed by. And also when you are going to be in the woods for the next 3 days, what’s the one important thing that you should have taken with you?. The Answer to both is  ‘The Company’.

“A company can make or Break a trip.”

You want like minded people, people who can enjoy the nature , enjoy silence , have healthy conversations , Can help out each other and above all you can be yourselves. All this can happen when you are with the right company.

When we set out to woods on this long weekend and when my wife and her friend were busy packing the food supplies, all I had in my mind is how light or heavy should I pack my camera bag. I just received my light stand and I want to experiment it in outdoors. So I was trying a way to squeeze in with our luggage. So when we set out camp ground, I knew for sure that all I had for the next 3 days is all the time for myself and my experiments. And our friends who accompanied were well aware that I would sit for hours fiddling with my camera than lending my hand in preparing food.

So the result of all this, I had my card full of images and one filled heart with wonderful memories.

Our Eve chat was endless. It extended till late nights and even made us worry that it would go till early morning :). This time I experimented with external flash to get this lovely blue exposure, which otherwise would have been pitch black.
