  1. Noisy, mischievous and with a bad reputation for covering docks all around the world with guano or bird-poop, seagulls can make or break your seaside vacation. The species exhibits a lot of strange behavior, from amusingly squabbling among themselves to dive-bombing and stealing unsuspecting touristsâ food. With plastic and waste levels around the worldâs coasts skyrocketing in recent decades, itâs not uncommon to see seagulls fighting over random refuse they find interesting - although one particular pair seem to have a dirtier mind than we expected birds to be capable of having. When planning her visit to the Childrenâs Pool in La Jolla, California, last Tuesday, conservation wildlife photographer Jennifer Leigh had hoped to snap some adorable newborn seal pups - specifically Californiaâs local harbour seals. While on the hunt for the perfect shot though, Leigh found a little more than she bargained for, when she spotted two juvenile seagulls quarrelling over the funniest rubbish find of the year - a rather realistically molded, light-coloured and fairly large dildo. © Instagram/Jennifer Leigh The pair tossed the *** toy around while chasing each other - finally, one of the gulls managed to snatch it away, soaring into the California sky with the dildo in its beak. © Instagram/Jennifer Leigh Truly majestic. Speaking to Gizmodo, Leigh said, âBefore realising what the object was, I was annoyed and mad, because plastic pollution is a real serious problem, and as a conservation photographer Iâm documenting human impacts on wildlife.â © Instagram/Jennifer Leigh âBut when I realised what it was, while the other emotions still existed, you canât help but find humour in it,â Leigh added. Leigh has worked with wildlife organisations such as the Cheetah Conservation Fund and Shootâem with a Camera - taking some truly stunning photographs of animals from all around the globe. The work aims at spreading awareness on the state of important natural ecosystems and humanityâs role as its guardians. © Instagram/CCF/Jennifer Leigh While the gull-dildo story was definitely worth a few laughs, itâs nice to note that the photo also stirred up a great deal of awareness for plastic pollution on Earthâs oceans. According to Greenpeace, up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the oceans each year. Itâs estimated that there are five trillion pieces of plastic in the oceans, enough to encircle the Earth more than 400 times. Not only does this severely degrade the quality of marine habitats, it also directly kills thousands of animals every year. © Reuters As many as nine out of ten seabirds, one out of three turtles and over half of all whale species have ingested plastic, gradually suffocating or poisoning them from the inside out. © Reuters What Iâm curious about is how the dildo ended up in the Pacific Ocean, though. Well, maybe the next time someone decides to have a little fun on the beach, theyâll remember to take their toys back home. View the full article
  2. While our entire focus was on the devastating effects of the bushfires in Australia currently, we missed out on the chance to witness something spectacular coming back to life, amidst all the chaos and fire. © Twitter When we thought the flora and fauna have forever ceased to exist in Australia's burnt forests, we were absolutely wrong. Murray Lowe, an Australian photographer, residing in New South Wales, shared images from Kulnara on the Central Coast of NSW, on Facebook, that show new flowers and leaves blooming in the ashes. The photographer has captured the essence of life, after forests were destroyed in the fire, and it's nothing short of beautiful. In fact, his caption on Facebook for these pictures says it all! "Went out to the fire grounds in Kulnura area again after a light rainfall the previous night, and found quite a bit of ant activity and leaves with rain drops cradled in them to provide water for insects in general. There is life out there and so marvellous to see it all once again regaining it's foot hold on this parched and scorched landscape," the caption read. Check out the images here: © Murray Lowe Photography Facebook © Murray Lowe Photography Facebook © Murray Lowe Photography Facebook This is definitely a silver lining for the continent as it gives up hope for a brand new life. It's almost like equating Australia to the Phoenix, which is actually emerging from the ashes, ready to welcome change in the most positive way ever. Murray Lowe has actually given us a lot of relief by releasing these pictures in the public domain and here's hoping the burnt forests of the continent are restored to normalcy, with its wildlife growing in numbers, hereon.

  3. Leonardo Di Caprio has most recently been in news for his relationship status updates, as commitment seems to be a weak point for him.

  4. Smartphone cameras, as we all know, have gotten a lot better now. The newly launched Huawei P30 Pro, for instance, lets you capture some stunning pictures of the moon like the one which we've shown in our review of the phone. But you don't always need a new and flashy flagship phone to take a good picture. Sometimes you simply use a two-year-old phone like the Galaxy S8 and come up with breathtaking pictures like this - © Twitter Yes, that's the planet Saturn. On March 29, the planet lined up perfectly with the moon, making it seem like it's touching the surface of the moon. It's a relatively common yet easy-to-miss event called a 'conjunction'. Pretty sure most of you reading this didn't know much about this event. But lucky for us earthlings, an astrophotographer Grant Petersen managed to capture the event. What's more surprising is that he captured it with his two-year-old Samsung Galaxy S8. Awesome, right? © Twitter Yes, the Galaxy S8 has really good cameras. But in all fairness, it's not entirely capable of taking a picture like that on its own. He mounted the phone to a telescope. In fact, the final image is a combination of several photos. His setup, as he explains, included an 8-inch Dobsonian telescope, a Galaxy S8 smartphone and an adapter to connect it to a lens, and lastly, an eyepiece. As the planet started aligning with the moon, Petersen recorded it in a 60-frame-per-second video. Then after the event, he processed the images using a technique called stacking to merge several of the video frames to get the final copy. This picture, in case you're wondering, was taken from Johannesburg, South Africa. He then decided to share the image on Twitter for the world to see. Simply stunning!
  5. For the most part, Ranbir Kapoor seems like quite a private person since he's not really on social media and isn't always directly interacting with his fans. Well, that's probably what he prefers, but it's a shame since we don't ever get to see his personal side more often and couldn't even tell how relatable he actually is. Until now. Today, when he arrived at the Mumbai Airport, he was obviously surrounded by paparazzi and seemed like he was in a fun mood since he basically started making small talk with the photographers present there. While walking outside, he asked one of them, “Yeh chappal kahaan se li?” to which, the photographer replied, “Andheri Station.” View this post on Instagram #ranbirkapoor says where did you buy these chappals? Our man says from Andheri station.ððð A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Apr 1, 2019 at 12:42pm PDT Wow, how many times have we asked the same question to our friends, and sometimes even random people? Next, I really, really want to see pictures of Ranbir going to the Andheri Station and finding the chappals, that would be hilarious. This is the type of quality content we deserve and even Anand Ahuja is enjoying it. The chappal is having a viral moment now. Probably the real reason.
  6. You will hardly hear anyone say nice things about their boss or the job they do, because people always have something or the other to crib about. We all have good and bad days, but no matter how bad your bad days are, it can't get worse than the guy who was working as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's photographer. via GIPHY Recently, the 47-year-old photographer was fired from his job and the reason will make you want to go and hug your boss, right now. Reportedly, the North Korean leader removed his personal photographer for damaging his "supreme dignity". How? By blocking the crowd's view of him, his neck to be more precise, for JUST three seconds. According to Pyongyang sources, as Daily Mail wrote, he was guilty of "adjusting the angle so that the camera's flash covered the Dear and Respected Supreme Leader Comrade's neck". And that's not it, he has also been blamed for violating two more rules. One, banning photography within two metres of the ruler, and the second, prohibiting pictures or videos from being taken directly in front of him. Kim Jong Un's personal photographer fired for breaking photography rules https://t.co/KUQyBjAsT6 pic.twitter.com/MGsnOmQH4j — NorthKoreaRealTime (@BuckTurgidson79) March 20, 2019 This incident took place when Kim Jong-un made a public appearance during North Korea's elections on March 10. Kim Jong-un had stopped to wave at the crowd and at that very moment, Ri stepped in front of him to take a picture and blocked his view. The poor guy was fired almost instantly. The guy's camera flash not only made him lose his job but also got him kicked out of the Workers' Party of Korea, thus making him a second-class citizen now. © Twitter So basically, the guy who is identified by his surname Ri, was fired for taking his job too seriously and going out of his way to click better pictures of Kim Jong-un? Next time your boss asks you to show more dedication and enthusiasm towards the work you do, show them this news.
  7. When it comes to ageing gracefully, we often shower praises on our Bollywood superstars who we think look great for their age. However, Chuando Tan, a photographer from Singapore, can give all of them a run for their money. He is 52, but does not look a day over 22! Here are 10 pictures of him - killing it with his fashion as well as his fitness game: 1. He can make a plain white T-shirt look like a runway-ready piece.

  8. Every kingdom stands tall and unthreatened courtesy to the knights in shining armour who hold down the fort against the enemies' onslaught, with all their might. The Indian subcontinent boasts of such mighty knights of its own. The only difference is, they don't wear those glinting armours. Instead, these knights sport camo-prints and put on such a display of bravado that is matched only by a few others. © Arjun Menon Their job profile isn't something you come across very often. You will find them setting up their homes in the most remote areas of the country, or someplace with adverse climatic conditions, marking their territories and standing guard over it, should its borders be threatened. © Arjun Menon These are the men and women who form the Indian Armed Forces, and they are the reason you and I can concern ourselves with all the memes in the world. But how many times have we stopped to wonder about the many life-threatening challenges and attacks these superheroes have to survive on a daily basis, so we get to party until 4 in the morning or get a good night of sleep? © Arjun Menon But somebody thought about it. And decided to bring the unseen side of their story for the masses to behold. Travel photographer Arjun Menon is the man behind the spectacular show of these heroes in their natural surroundings, doing what they do best. © Arjun Menon Arjun had the chance to document how a day in the life of these superheroes looks like, and he spent weeks tailing them across the changing geographies of the land. The end result was 'The Extraordinary' photo-series and the pictures are for all of us to see and marvel over. The Backstory This is a daunting task to accomplish and we wonder what how Arjun got around to accomplishing it. If you ask this question to Arjun he would tell you that 'The Extraordinary' was his personal passion project. Before you wonder why, it's because Arjun himself comes from an Army background. © Arjun Menon Arjun's father was a pilot with the Indian Army Aviation, and ever since he was a kid, Arjun took pride in the fact that his father could fly a heavy, mean machine high up in the skies, performing combat training or helping out paratroopers jump off his helicopter, besides many other things. Arjun lost his father to a helicopter crash 16 years ago, and ever since he had wished to bring the trials and tribulations of the Indian Army to the fore, through the only means he knew - photography. © Arjun Menon The Extraordinary Project Once Arjun decided what exactly he wanted to achieve through this project, he set his plans into motion. For Arjun, the aim of this project was to explore and throw light on the extraordinary feats these men and women accomplish throughout their tenure, without yearning for credit or appreciation. © Arjun Menon The Final Journey Arjun set out to bring his dreams to fruition and sought chances to observe and document the army soldiers in action - practising or in pseudo combats. But initially, the Indian Army wasn't too sure about giving in to Arjun's demands of being sent to secret bases to click the photographs. It took multiple visits to Delhi and some convincing before they believed that Arjun's motivations were right. © Arjun Menon Next? Arjun got to travel to different confidential bases across India to document it all. Arjun shot in some very difficult locations, and the soldiers completely cooperated with Arjun to bring each of his visions to life. The Takeaway Having spent so much personal time with the soldiers, clicking the photographs and observing their workday up close, Arjun released how incredible each of them are. From temperatures ranging between -18 degrees to 48 degree Celsius, and in topographies that would make an ordinary person give up within minutes, these superheroes continue to perform their duty without a word of complaint. © Arjun Menon A lot of hardwork and love has gone into this project, and all Arjun wishes to accomplish through this photo series is to inspire the youth of this nation to consider the Indian Army as a career option. That he says, would be his “mission accomplished”.
  9. Over the years, the world of cricket has witnessed many opening batsmen making their mark in international cricket. From Saeed Anwar, Mathew Hayden to Virender Sehwag, all these Phenoms had a special talent of hitting the ball long and strong. While their blistering batting performances cut a sorry figure for the opposition bowlers, it also provided their respective sides roaring starts in the game. In the modern era of the sport, Rohit Sharma seems to be doing that job for India in limited-overs cricket. Rapidly establishing his reputation as one of the most destructive openers in the game, Rohit's malleable wrists and knack to find gaps with effortless drives have allowed India to set the ball rolling early in the innings. © BCCL While his job in the Indian line-up is predominantly at the top of the order, providing flying starts to his team, Rohit seems to have swapped his role as Virat Kohli's men get engrossed with the much-anticipated tour of Australia. Swapping his willow for a camera, Rohit seems to have become Team India's official photographer Down Under. The 31-year-old decided to test his 'shooting skills' with the camera as he went behind the lens to click the photos of Manish Pandey ahead of their first T20I at the Gabba. While Manish missed out on the spot in India's 12-man side for the first T20I, he was adequately aided by Rohit for the video. Directing Pandey to act for the video, Rohit said some encouraging words: "Pretend as if you're getting ready. It'll be just 10 seconds. You've to do something. I am going to do some direction. Let's see how it goes. A bit of a camera work rather, not direction actually," Rohit explained to the viewers. While the candid video brought a smile to the faces of Indian cricket fans, they will now be hoping for the 'Hitman' to resume his cricketing duties as the Kohli brigade gears up to establish dominance Down Under.
  10. Do you remember what you were doing at the age of 10? Whatever it was, I can guarantee it wasn't anything close to winning the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. Arshdeep Singh is just 10-years-old and he's already officially cooler than me. He won the exciting award for his photograph 'Pipe Owls' in the 10-years-and-under category. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is organised by Britain's Natural History Museum. No wonder he won though, just look at how cool the picture he clicked is! © Natural History Museum There's obviously a story behind the picture as well. Arshdeep came across a spotted owlet popping its head out from an old waste-pipe while he was driving through Punjab's Kapurthala with his father. After asking his father to stop the car, he rested the camera on the half-open window of the car at eye level, and soon enough, a second owlet popped up and he captured the moment beautifully. I don't know exactly what happened, but it feels like the entire thing went something like this – View this post on Instagram wait for it #catsofinstagram #cats #thedailykitten #cutepetclub #bestmeow #myroommateisacat #catsofworld #instapet #petsofinstagram #kittens #9gagnoticeme A post shared by @ charlieisahoe on Sep 20, 2017 at 12:52pm PDT Turns out the photography talent runs in the family; Arshdeep's father is Randeep Singh, a well-known photographer. He's been around photography his whole life and started clicking pictures at the age of six and then ventured into the field of wildlife photography in 2012. Wait, there are more ways in which this little boy is cooler than us. His photographs have previously been featured in Lonely Planet UK, Lonely Planet Germany, Lonely Planet India, BBC Wildlife UK and more.
  11. Nine years after its foundation stone was laid, Sikkim finally got its first ever airport in Pakyong today. The aerodrome was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. © Twitter PM Modi is on a two-day visit to the state and arrived on Sunday. While most people were busy looking at the beauty of this engineering marvel, we saw something that was sort of hidden from all of us- PM Modi's photography skills. © Twitter People often complain about PM Modi's national and international tours. However, we don't want to bring politics in here, so we'll only talk about how his trips almost always give us major travel goals. In all honesty, he is living a life every wanderlust dreams of living. © Twitter Had PM Modi not been a politician, he could have made for a good travel photographer and these pictures are proof. Alright! Maybe, we exaggerated a bit, but it's the effort that counts, right? He clicked these pictures from his chopper and shared them on social media with the caption, "Serene and splendid! Clicked these pictures on the way to Sikkim. Enchanting and incredible! #IncredibleIndia." Serene and splendid! Clicked these pictures on the way to Sikkim. Enchanting and incredible! #IncredibleIndia pic.twitter.com/OWKcc93Sb1 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) September 23, 2018 These pictures not only manage to capture the beauty of Sikkim but also have wanderlust written all over them. Talking about the airport, it's located on top of a hill nearly 2 km above Pakyong village at 4,500 feet above sea level between the Himalayas. It also happens to be North-East India's first greenfield airport. The cost of constructing this airport is more than Rs. 600 crores and it is located around 33 km from Gangtok. Reportedly, the first commercial flight from Pakyong will take off on October © Twitter The inauguration of this airport and these pictures are reasons enough to make travel plans to Sikkim soon. What do you guys think?
  12. There are so many romantic movies where there's at least one scene of the two people who are madly in love kissing in the rain. We grew up believing it to be one of the most romantic moment and would love to experience it on our own as well. But, then we realize where we live, and that fantasy is ruined, much like how our family's reputation will be 'ruined' if anyone sees it. But, we can all agree it's a beautiful moment nonetheless. Since monsoon is upon us and it's pouring everywhere, a young photographer in Bangladesh decided to take advantage of the incredible weather and all the good things it brings with itself. Jibon Ahmed captured a picture of a couple kissing in the rain in Dhaka University, with the backdrop of people just going about their day and working. What a moment! It's like utopia where two people seemingly in love isn't anyone else's concern; it's almost as if they are in their own world. Jibon Ahmed He shared the picture with the caption “This is a poem of the blessed rains, let love be free.” It was such an amazing picture, it started going viral. People's reaction, however, was a little divided. While some showed appreciation for the message of love it carried, others had to get political with it. But, that was just the beginning. It has been reported that just a few days after the pictures was shared, Jibon, the photographer, was assaulted by some other photographers at that university. Apparently, Jibon, who works as a photojournalist with a news website, has also been fired from his job. This stupid and honestly misplaced attack against Jibon made people speak up in his favour and come to his defence. Fahima Durrat, a professor at Dhaka University, shared her views on Facebook. People showed their outrage and support on Twitter as well. Shocking to see the outrage against this photograph and physical assault on the photographer. We should kiss everywhere and we should kiss often. Let's fight back. One kiss at a time! #kiss #Bangladesh #viral #TSC #moralpolice #photography #jibonahmed https://t.co/1U3rfmYG39 — Shehzeen Choudhury (@ShehzeenSays) July 25, 2018 And, here's a meme perfectly highlighting the hypocrisy.

  18. Can you guess some of the most important and critical elements of any wedding? Bride and Groom? of course. A gigantic buffet with lots of mouth-watering food to gorge on? Yes. Best friend's Naagin dance? Most Definitely. Joote Churai? Well, it depends on which side you are from. While all the above mentioned aspects are important, there's one person without whom any wedding is incomplete. Nope we're not talking about pandit ji! It's your wedding photographer. Pexels Yes, the same guy who will make you stand, sit or climb on rocks for hours in the scorching heat; basically make you do whatever he wants to in the name of a pre-wedding shoot. But guys, let's not blame him. He's doing his job and sometimes, a lot of effort goes into getting a perfect shot. Even if it means hanging upside down from a tree! I swear, I did not make this up. It actually happened in Kerala and we hope someone finds this man and gives him a Nobel prize for being the most dedicated photographer in the world. Twitter Recently, a Twitter user posted this hilarious video of a couple's wedding shoot, where the photographer is hanging upside down from the tree like a bat, just to get a good angle of the couple. The caption was, “When you wanted to become Spider-Man to fight crime but ended up becoming wedding photographer due to parental pressure.” Well, given how Peter Parker was also a photographer, we can kind of call him Indian Spidey or Spiderman. When you wanted to become Spider-Man to fight crime but ended up becoming wedding photographer due to parental pressure. pic.twitter.com/aFtnrFtTf7 — Pakchikpak Raja Babu (@HaramiParindey) April 18, 2018 Honestly, this man is the only superhero this generation needs, who not only scores a perfect 10 for his athleticism but also gets 20 on 10 for showing such dedication towards his work. Jokes apart, this is what the final result is and our respect for him is hitting the roof right now. Here is the end result of this man's spidey effort. Let's take a moment of silence to appreciate his effort. :') pic.twitter.com/gQkiANEgrs — Sruthi Sahasranaman (@paradoxinprowl) April 19, 2018 Here is the original pic.twitter.com/x9UgqL1fOn — Tuttu P Hð (@tuttuph) April 19, 2018 So, next time when someone comments “Oh, so cute!” or “Nice click, God Bless” on your wedding pictures, give the entire credit to your photographer who worked hard for it.

For many today, a Turban or Dastaar is an accessory to flaunt but for Maninder Singh, it's one of the most powerful symbols of Sikh identity. 13th April is celebrated all over the world as International Turban Day and Maninder is on a mission to educate people and spread awareness about the importance of Turbans. “The Sikh Turban is a photo series aimed at spreading awareness about different styles of Turbans and the project aims to eradicate several misconceptions which exist globally regarding the Turban,” says Maninder elaborating on the project. “In ancient times, the turban was worn by the elites of the society and the Sikh gurus rebelled against this system. The Sikh turban, therefore, is an embodiment of teachings that represent the love of the Guru and the sigma to do good deeds. The International Turban Day is celebrated on 13th April because the turban is a gift given to the Sikhs on Vaisakhi (in 1699) by the Tenth Master, Guru Gobind Singh.” The project is not just about Sikh teaching and epithets, it is also about how to style incredible turbans and look your menacing best. Here are 8 different types of Turbans that will ramp up your personality this International Turban Day: 1. Gurmukhi Dastar © Gurmukhi Dastar - House of Singh It is usually tied by the religious heads of the Gurudwaras. Before tying this style of turban, it's folded and sometimes ironed to make the turban 4 inch thick and 8-10 meters long. 2. Dabbi Vala Parna © Dabbi (check) Vala Parna - House of Singh A parna is a smaller round turban often tied using a thicker printed/checkered cloth. It is usually tied by the Sikhs who are into farming. Its length can be 2-5-3.5 meters. 3. Dumalla or Domalla © Dumalla - House of Singh This is a double length turban of 10 or more meters. It's easy to wear and you can use ornaments to decorate it too. 4. Amritsari Pagg © Morni Pagg - House of Singh It's a double wide turban worn commonly in Punjab. To style your turban this way, you need six meters of turban cloth, cut it in half and then sew together both halves together on long edge to make it doublewide. 5. Gol Dastaar © Gol Dastaar - House of Singh Gol Dastaar is a round shaped turban. It can be styled in three ways – quick, clean or complex. A Gol Dastaar needs five meters of turban cloth cut in half to style. 6. Vadda Dumalla or Domalla (Nihung Singh Style) © Vadda Dumalla (Nihung Singh Style) - House of Singh This is a warrior style turban which was worn by Sikhs in battle. Shastars (weapons) can also be placed on this kind of turban as it is mostly worn by the Nihung Sikhs of Khalsa Army to protect the head. 7. Vattan Vali Pagg © Vattan (wrinkle) Vali Pagg - House of Singh As the name suggests, Vattan (wrinkle) is tied without cleaning the folds. It can 5-8 meters long and can be tied with Patiala Shahi and Morni turban as well. 8. UK Style Turban © UK Style Turban- House of Singh This type of turban is usually tied by the British and African Sikhs who tend to wear smaller, sharper turbans. It can be plain or printed. While turbans are a sacred part of the Sikh identity, they are worn by many other sects around the world because they convey royalty, grace and uniqueness. This International Turban day let's spread the message of peace and tolerance, one 'pagg' at a time.
  21. We live in a day and age where everybody, including mum, dad, sister and even dogs, has a phone on him at all times. Most of these phones have a camera slapped onto it which means there's always a picture being uploaded to the internet. I used to be a horrible photographer and realised later on what a knob I was being by putting up ridiculous looking pictures. Anyone can share a picture today, anyone can click a picture today but it doesn't necessarily mean you are a good photographer. There are a lot of factors that contribute towards taking good pictures and there are various ways you can make your skills betters. Some of these tips apply to any camera, but these tips are specific to smartphone users and these tips will help you up your photography game. 1. Clean That Lens This tip can be applied to any camera and is probably the most obvious tip you can find on the internet. However, there are quite a few people who never bother cleaning their camera lens. No matter what you do, a dirty lens will always end up giving you mediocre pictures. Just the same way you clean the screen of your phone, make a habit to clean your lens too. A microfiber cloth (the ones that are used for spectacles and what not) is the perfect accessory that is good for wiping your lens. It helps in removing fingerprints, dirt and body oils that interfere with your pictures. You can even use a cleaning fluid like 'Colin' if you are serious about your pictures. 2. Composition Is Key This should be your number one priority. If you are serious about your pictures, then you can make no excuse about your compositions. Your picture might look perfect to your eyes, it might have the right colours and might be perfect in every other way; but if the framing of your picture is off, it will destroy all your efforts. © Pexels You can start by utilising the grid feature every phone camera has today. It is paramount that you use this feature as it's the first thing you will learn in a photography class as well. The idea behind this feature is to give your subject the main focus. The grid lines make the subject much clearer. You want to keep your subject located towards any of the corners of the centre square. You can understand better with the picture below: 3. Background Is As Important As Your Subject © Pexels You need to make sure your background is not very distracting and does not take away the focus from the main subject. Make sure the background is clean and presentable and ensure there aren't objects that can cause any sort of distraction. These distractions can vary from bright lights to garbage and other striking objects. 4. Use The Right Mode If you are using your camera to take a picture of landscapes or a selfie or that of a sunset, there are different modes that go with each photo type. Whether you are taking a portrait or a close-up, you need to know the correct mode. There are modes like slow motion, panorama and other modes that can make that extra difference. 5. Never Use The Zoom © Pexels Your phone might have the option to zoom into your subject but it is probably the stupidest thing you can do if you want a perfect picture. Zooming into your subject and taking a picture makes the photograph grainy, pixelated and it crops out the edge. It also messes up the composition of your picture. Please leave the zooming for DSLRs and even those pictures can be grainy at times. If you really need to get a close-up shot, stop being lazy and actually move towards your subject. It will always be better to walk up to your subject rather than using the zoom option. 6. Ditch The Flash © Apple Using the flash for pictures has always been something I've hated. The flash can be really harsh and it can make your picture look weird with shadows, highlights and what not. Reflections are also something that cannot be avoided and the flash will not enable you to capture anything at all. Turn it off! 7. Use Third Party Apps © Camu The stock camera on your phone is good but there are plenty of other camera apps that will not let you down and get you that great shot. Most third party apps offer more settings and filters and they also let you tweak the focus and exposure separately. Some of them also have different flash options in case you need to use it. Apps like VSCOcam, Camu, Camera+, ProCamera are only just a few you can play around with.
  22. Analysis of Instagram's Android application package (APK) shows the app has a hidden portrait camera mode buried within its code, reports TechCrunch. Decompiling the code revealed a file for a portrait shutter icon alongside existing camera modes like "live" and reverse. Inside the Instagram APK, there's a new image file for a portrait shutter icon or the graphic that's displayed over the shutter button for each of Instagram's different camera modes. The image is named for a portrait shutter, suggesting Instagram is considering the possibility of bringing a portrait mode to the camera. © TechCrunch The new feature could possibly allow users to click bokeh shots or pictures with blurred background or lighting effects as seen on latest iPhones. Meanwhile, Instagram has not given any statement regarding the new feature. The details of this feature are unclear, so it's unknown if it'll offer anything beyond a blurry background. It's also not known when this feature might be launched to the public. The files were originally leaked by Twitter user Ishan Agarwal. This new discovery comes right after the option for search filters, starring chats and messages and an option to download all your data that Instagram is holding on its servers, were spotted in the app's APK file. © Difference in Background Blur due to Portrait Mode (MensXP) The app may use the Pixel core on Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to deliver higher quality and more stylised images. Starting with the iPhone 7 Plus, a lot of smartphones followed the portrait shooting mode to click DSLR like photos in the native camera app. Adding it to Instagram could make the app more appealing to those folks that don't have a built-in portrait mode, especially since there's not a similar feature found in Snapchat. Instagram has added several new modes inside the app's Stories camera mode over the past few months, including a Type mode, Superzoom, and a Stop-motion mode, joining the more long-standing options like Boomerang and Live.

  23. Most of us often look for that perfect background to get clicked in front of because of the common misconception that only exotic locations can give you that Instagram-worthy picture. But time and again, photographers across the world have proved that while a good background does make the work a little better, it definitely isn't the secret behind a good picture. And Adam Delane is here to reinstate your faith in the same. You might have heard of the 'Ugly Location Challenge'. If you haven't, it basically means taking pictures in what seems like an 'ugly location' to you and surprising the world with magnificent results that you can get after some careful lighting and editing. Adam, a photographer based in Cincinnati, took up the challenge a little differently and decided to shoot inside a small crafts store in US called 'Hobby Lobby'. Apparently, Hobby Lobby has the best and biggest selection of fake flowers. He posted the results on his Facebook and boy, oh boy! We want to visit him only to get our photographs taken by him in the same store. Have a look: 1. This is the before 2. And THIS is after. He was accompanied by 4 of his female friends and each one of them looked surreal in the after photos. 3. Just casually holding flowers. 4. And BAM! 5. Kinda awkward pose 6. But it led to this 7. Some of the BTS is hilarious 8. WOAH 9. Wait for it 10. The lighting though… Since then, Adam's photos have taken the entire world by storm and have started a new challenge called the 'Hobby Lobby Challenge'. Now that's the kind of online challenge we like! In case you are wondering how he did it, here's a video that he posted to take you behind the scenes: You can see more of his work here: Adam Delane Photography
  24. Karl Templer, Patrick Demarchelier, and Greg Kadel. Image Courtesy: Business of Fashion via Craig McDean/Courtesy, Victor Boyko/Getty Images, Rob Loud/WireImage NEW YORK: The Boston Globe published a bombshell expose on Friday accusing more than two dozen professionals in the fashion industry ? among them legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier ? of sexual misconduct. The paper?s Spotlight team ? which, in 2002, unveiled widespread sexual abuse by Catholic priests in Boston ? said more than 50 models had detailed alleged misconduct they had experienced, from touching to assault. Collectively, they made credible claims against at least 25 photographers, agents, stylists, casting directors, and other industry professionals, the Globe reported. They include Demarchelier, fellow photographer Greg Kadel ? who has worked for Victoria?s Secret and Vogue ? and stylist Karl Templer, who has worked with Coach, Zara, and Tommy Hilfiger. The Globe said all of those accused had denied the allegations against them. Nevertheless, glossy magazine empire Conde Nast, whose company includes Vogue, had said it has stopped working for now with Demarchelier and Kadel. The Globe said one of Demarchelier?s former assistants complained about relentless sexual demands, to which she eventually submitted, fearing that she would otherwise endanger her position. Six other women accused the now 74-year-old Frenchman of unwanted advances, including thrusting a model?s hands onto her genitals and grabbing another model?s breasts, the Globe said. Demarchelier did not immediately respond to an AFP request to comment. He was quoted by the Globe as saying the complaints against him were untrue. "People lie and they tell stories," he said. The sexual harassment watershed engulfing the United States has already rocked the fashion industry, with allegations of misconduct seeing photographers Terry Richardson, Mario Testino and Bruce Weber barred from collaborating with Conde Nast. The magazine empire has issued a new "Code of Conduct" to include bans on alcohol on sets and the use of models under the age of 18 without a chaperone present. Nudity or "sexually suggestive" poses are to be agreed on beforehand. The Globe said some models wanted to expose serial predators while others wanted new legal protections and radical reform in an industry they say left them feeling exploited.
  25. In today's time, we all are familiar with the magic that Photoshop can create. Essentially used to make a picture look better, people across the world are now using this software to not just edit a photo a little, but to transform it all together. So much so, that we are often left bewildered and can't make out what's real and what isn't. And this Indonesian photographer is doing just that and how! Syahril Ramadhan calls himself a 'surreal photographer'. Or that's what his Instagram bio says.
