Desired. Waited. Achieved.

30th Oct, 2013. A long wait ended. A goal achieved and a goal added to life. Goal to approach the next step of the ladder. To be a better human being. A better IBMer!

Lets start with the things this post is not. Its not a success story. Its not a success guide. This is a chain of events put together. Fragments of my life, how I got depressed after TCS, how I realized that it was actually a lesson, and how I accepted the fact that I have got control over many things, but I keep cribbing about things on which I have no control, which is a waste of time and energy. Perseverance is a sword. And putting my time to shine it was and is a better use of the time. Continue reading

A photographer in the making!

Camera, photos, snaps, the sound of clicks… dunno the exact time when these words became my friends. And gradually, not just friends, they kinda turned into my passion, my smile. Though here, I don’t wanna start with my obsession for photography, because then this post may take the whole front-page of my blog, which is not yearned for! So here goes some clicks,

“A simple click which can’t be described into words”
“My last auto-mode click”
“Shutter speed 1/350, aperture 5.6. 26 x optical + 10x digital. Unedited!”
“Rooftop click”

Description of my cam – I own a Nikon coolpix P100, which is not a DSLR but this specific SLR can be termed as photographers-delight! Some features as follows:

1. A 26× optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad focal range of wide-angle 26mm through super-telephoto 678mm (35mm format equivalent)

2. Technologies that enable excellent image quality: CMOS image sensor with backside illumination structure, Backlit Scene HDR (high dynamic range) mode, which makes the most of continuous shooting technologies, and an advanced Night Landscape scene mode

3. High-speed continuous shooting functions that enable continuous shooting of images at the maximum size (10 MP) at 10 fps and sport continuous mode, which allows for continuous shooting at up to approximately 120 fps

4. Full HD movie recording and playback functions

5. A 3-in., approximately 460k-dot vari-angle Clear Color Display simplifies shooting from a variety of angles

6. 5 features that effectively prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement

7. Smart portrait system for consistently beautiful portraits

8. HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging to create images with a range of tonal detail that could not be captured in a single photo.

[PS- I started off with a Sony cybershot dsc-910 belongs to Anirban Saha, my brother, and my inspiration for photography!]
