Hi im Rahul ,there are 2 things that drive me..Music and photography , while studying 3d animation and film cinematics in christchurch, newzealand what instantly captured my mind were the beautiful graffiti laden walls and the beautiful scenic surroundings which was like walkin in a dream sequence and just a walk down that path would really make my day, i thought to myself why not capture all this so i got myself a camera (olympus) and started clicking all over the place , what i found out was the most satisfying thing in the world for me at that point was to capture people , pictures and walls , the biggest joy of everyday came just looking at the world through my viewfinder and clickin away , i decided then that photography is the career ill take , i read countless books , hired hundreds of dvds , downloaded and examined millions of images and studied this art like i was posessed,it in turn helped my 3d studies too as my imagination was getting better by the day ,once i finished studies i came back home to Mumbai , India and started free lancing photography and the odd 3d assignment(a mans gota eat :) ) found that the more i click the better i get.Being a intense critic of my work i started to set targets for myself like i have to have 5 beautiful images out of 100 clicks to start with and then gradually increase my skill , lighting techniques and composition of images , i feel at this point i am still very hungry to get better and reach a level that would have made the great "Henry cartier bresson" proud, i intend to professionally pursue fashion and event photography and hope to make enough money to purchase new equipment and get to the top bracket of my art , only then can i truly say i spend a lot of time on my passion and truly made it mine

Nikon d600 Review

Published November 2nd, 2012

Nikon has been rather busy over the past year, having already released the D4 and D800 in quick succession. But the company isn't taking a break just yet. The Nikon D600 aims to fill the gap between the hugely capable and professional Nikon D800 and the enthusiast-level Nikon D7000.

The D600 is Nikon's first 'accessible' full-frame DSLR. Its £1,955.99/$2,099.95 price tag comfortably undercuts the full price of the Nikon D800 or Canon EOS 5D Mark III, while the size and weight of the Nikon D600 are only a marginal increase over the cropped-sensor Nikon D7000.

But has Nikon cut any corners to produce its smallest and least expensive full-frame offering?

At the heart of the Nikon D600 is a new 24.3 million pixel, FX format CMOS sensor. It may seem quite a reduction from the 36.3MP chip in the Nikon D800, but it's still enough to outdo a Nikon D4 or Canon EOS 5D Mark III in terms of outright resolution.

Of course a good sensor needs to be backed up ...

Canon Vs Nikon

Published November 2nd, 2012

Among camera pros, the “Canon vs. Nikon” debate is as eternal and as heated any Mac vs. PC smackdown. And, with Nikon’s release of the D3 and D300 D-SLRs, the war of words has picked up with renewed frenzy.

If you’re passionate about this, it’s easy to be drawn into the discussion at an emotional level and lose perspective, but there are some rational voices adding to the mix. One of them is Michael Reichmann, a professional photojournalist who also runs the excellent Luminous Landscape site. He has just posted a lengthy and very well-written review of the Nikon D-SLRs. Subtitled “a Biased Evaluation of The Differences Between the Nikon and Canon Brands,” Reichmann talks more about usability, functionality and flexibility than he does about image quality, because, for many photographers, those are the important things when you’re shooting every day under vastly different conditions. He clearly notes that he's not “switching,” but he does give some serious props to Nikon’s efforts, and ...
