Mylai Festival -- Take Two

When the night slowly started settling in and using the 18-55mm lens became a tough proposition, the 50mm prime came to my rescue. There is a definite sharpness to the shots clicked with a prime lens that the other lens surely lack. The 50mm really shines during these night times and it is no exaggeration that without this lens, all the below shots would have been impossible.

Mylai Festival

Last weekend, I had participated in the photowalk organized by PSM and what a wonderful experience it turned out to be. There were close to 35+ photographers who had come for the photoshoot and it was a great learning experience for me. I had the chance to meet it person so many people who I have only heard through emails and flickr ID's.

The theme that our group of four decided to take up was designs and I decided to extend it to 'Shapes' as well. The main idea behind shooting pictures with a theme is that it opens up our eyes and we start 'seeing' things much more clearly. It took me close to 30 minutes before my eyes could start seeing 'shapes'. Given below are some of the shapes that I captured. There are other snaps in which the theme was not met but I nevertheless went ahead and clicked lest I miss those opportunity.
