Well my really enjoying my freedom of my own boss. Yesterday i attended the Dubai International Film Festival, morning I attended the press conference of Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, one of the most successful Indian Cinema Actor. First time ever I saw him and it was a great honor to meet this iconic film star of India. He is very famous in other parts of the world as well. The below images of Mr. Bachhan, which was shot yesterday and got approved this morning.
After that I attended the full celebrity RED CARPET event of DIFF, first time ever saw so many film stars and celebrities from around the world, I met many India Cinema Stars, Arabic Stars and some western stars. Yet to upload the red carpet event images, but stuck as i'm not aware of many stars name.
One rare thing I noticed as i was surrounded by many professional photographers from various media and of the lot 90 percent of the photographers were not aware of dreamstime site. I was really shocked to learn that many didnt know about microstock site. I took the opportunity to inform them about such sites, and how we can make money out of it. Well boy if someone registers I will lose the referral commission, but was satisfied that I was able to inform these photographers about Dreamstime and other microstock sites.
Another problem I faced, which I guess is very important for photographers who cover events. How do you guys remember whos who in the event. I didnt have time to write down the names of the celebrities. I know few Indian and Western artists but Arabic, I'm alien I dont know how to get names of these stars. What you guys do in such situation, I saw some photographers were writing down the names, and few were doing the voice recording in their camera. One photographer I saw was using Nikon D300 and he had voice recorder to record the names. I'm wondering if D90 as this option.Your inputs will be highly helpful.
Finally before wrap up, here some of my new images and will be away from DT for few weeks as I'm flying to India to be with my wife as she is expecting this week. In few weeks time I will be proud father. Insha Allah.
