First assignment approval and how it happened!

I've tried to get images selected for assignments, but had never succeeded. Until now. The "Retro Look" call for assignments was of great interest to me. This was like an open invitation to get iphone or android app processed images or even Lomo-ish images out into the competition, something I'd dare not venture to post otherwise.I tried a couple of times and got rejected and hence was looking for a good subject. While on a trip to the UAE, I thought it would be a good idea to shoot either the brilliant... continue reading

One subject and millions of options to shoot.

I have heard many of my friends saying, there is no more subject to shoot, but I don't think its not true. With one single subject you can create millions of images. And I think all the million images will be different from each other.I have started to explore this option, my favorite subject is the Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi.Whenever I visit that place around 160 kilometer from my place, it brings lots of peace. I go to that mosque, see people from around the world, from different community... continue reading
