Kata Bumblebee PL-220 Camera Backpack Review

We photographers are a crazy lot, first we buy super expensive gear and then we get into this endless loop of buying other necessities and accessories. On top of the necessities list is a camera bag which can safely hold our precious gear from accidents and natural elements. I have been using the Kata Bumblebee PL-220 for almost 3 years now and I thought its about time that I pen down my experience with this camera bag. As I won't be going into all the features of the bag you can find them here: I primarily bought it for hiking and this was one of the bags which comes under the Pro-Light series. The bag itself is around 3kgs which is pretty light for the kind of protection you get with this bag. Apart from the light weight what got me hooked to this bag was the design and the Gecko straps. The back of the bag actually looks pretty neat and the overall quality and construction gives a feel of a

Chasing Ice

Sometimes you see something and you feel like being part of it. The landscape of Earth is changing as we speak and there are few brave souls out there who are trying to get the worlds attention towards it. James Balog is one such guy, hats off to him and his crew to make this happen. I'm so going to watch this as soon as I get my hands on it. 

Welcome home Ojasvi

One of the biggest perks of being born as a photographers child is that you get your childhood visually documented with some awesome images. I hope my daughter will appreciate the effort of her dad. This was my first shot at child photography and i'm hoping that I will grow accustomed and better at shooting kids as I have my in house model to practice and further hone my child photography skills. Have a look at the first photo session I had with Ojasvi.

One flew over the sparrow's nest.

It was almost a year back when we had those bird houses made and to our dismay there was no taker for the houses for almost an year. Suddenly there was a flurry of activity and before we knew it a pair of sparrows had taken up the house.  They filled the bird house with twigs and while we pretended to ignore their activity the sparrows had three cute little babies. From then on the whole day all they wanted was food...parents did their best and one fine day all of them flew away!! The sparrows still sit their...looks like they are waiting for them to come back. I feel sad and happy at the same time. I guess thats life!!


Holi, the Indian festival of colors captured in high speed action!! I'm just wondering when will we be able to capture something like this on our DSLR's.

The tree that was chopped for a cause.

Sometimes you end up on location and you find the frame that will look the best visually is obstructed either by something man made or something natural like a tree. The man made stuff can still be taken care of but you just can not chop off a tree for a shot. I was stuck in a similar situation recently, I took a back up shot first just to be safe and then I captured real frame. I was thinking I will do something about this tree in post but I had no idea that I will end up chopping the tree, at least in post it's all legal. This is the 'Before' shot Apart from the tree I ended up growing some grass in the foreground, removing the cars and stacks of bricks from the background. And lastly I thought if I have cut a tree I must plant one too so I planted a tree in the background, that tree helped me get rid of the stack of bricks. The client was more than happy. Looking at it now I feel I can still make it look better, but then I think about the Fine art images

Where the time stands still

'Narna' is a small village in the state of Madhya Pradesh (M.P.) India. Everything about this village is serene and it has a very calming effect on the senses. The mud walls are perfect to take on the severe heat wave this part of India faces during the long summer days.   I was there during one of those heat waves and was surprised to see such chilled out group of people living in harmony. The villagers were friendly and they even invited us to their homes. This kind of hospitality can only be experienced in a small place and is unimaginable in a big city where even the neighbors are suspicious of each other. I was so kicked and excited as soon as we entered the village that it was only halfway during my visit to the village that I realized my ISO was set on 800!!  This worked for me in this particular case as I ended up adding grain to the images shot on low ISO later on. Definitely one of the most photographically fulfilling day.  Check out more images h
