Let me confess! “This is the first book on the subject of Photography that I have ever read completely“. I am glad that I did.
As they say, “The food you shoot, you can’t eat and the food you eat, you can’t shoot” Food Photography is not my forte, never done it. To take decent enough pro-quality images you’ll need at least studio set up and and a food stylist (at least that’s what I think of). So, when I got the opportunity to accompany a food reviewer to shoot some pictures of the food she’s gonna review, I was up for it.
It’s been a long time that I’ve not posted on the f stop diary. The company for which I was working with went for cost cutting. I was one of those who were axed. I found myself searching for bread and butter and lost a little focus on the updating this blog so I had to take a break from the blogging. But I m back now. I am still plagued with problems and issues one being the motherboard of my computer broke and I have no way of fixing it. But I took inspiration from Austin Evans who recently […]
While starting to write this chapter I assumed this would be the most easiest of the chapters to write in this series of my Free Basics of Photography Course. I was wrong, I am still unclear whether I was clear enough to make you understand about the concept of ISO. But still here we go.

I am back with the latest edition of my Free Basics of Photography Course. Yes, I know I am not a schedule but my real life has caught up to me. Without further ado we dive into to the next chapter. In this chapter you’ll learn the Basics of metering.
I have made a couple of videos pursuing my goal of 20 videos this year. The processing/editing of the videos and even the photos is becoming PITA with every passing day. The editing of the videos that I have made is still pending. The reason; I am seriously limited by my existing computer configuration. It is a 6 year old AMD Athlon 64 bit processor based computer. The existing system is just enough to handle Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Premier Pro. Considering my workflow and the time I spend editing a photo/video I decided it is high time to get […]
Hi, I am Atul Tayade. I am photographer based in New Delhi, India. First, wishing all the readers of TNG a very Happy New Year across the world. In this post I am gonna share how I started my photography, what equipment I use and why and how I use it.
The idea of making images in low light brings fast lenses and high iso to one’s mind. Don’t know about either of the terms? I suggest continue to read this series of chapters and I promise you’ll learn about them and much more. Anyways, you have slow shutter speeds at your disposal in low light to create images. This chapter of my Free Basics of Photography Course is about slow shutter speeds and Motion.
Happy 2013 to all of you, I welcome you into the new year. I know I am 15 days too late to say this but you see the last couple of weeks were really chilly, they are saying that this season is the coldest season in Delhi in the last 20 years (I don’t believe it! I feel the same chill every year). Along with the chill, I was extremely busy with a host of things. And these are the reasons for my delay in posting on this blog. Anyways, today’s post is just an update on what I have […]
