HOW TO TELL AWESOME STORIES THROUGH YOUR CAMERA

Travel the world and come back with a suitcase full of memories – all this only with your camera lens

Do you happen to remember the smell of a pretty flower you saw in the garden, the thrill of sitting in a roller coaster ride, the adrenaline rush you experienced during white water rafting, the fragrance and taste of local food and the warmth of the natives who gave you shelter? The photographs you click during your travel should bring these sensations back and help you share those fun-we-had stories with your loved ones. So how do you click the best shot?

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved…
– Late American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams

For capturing a picture that comes alive every single time you look at it, you need to think and feel as much as you need to look.

HONG KONG IN PICTURES

Though my recent trip to Hong Kong was a brief one, it pretty much gave me a glimpse of the noodle town which is a unique blend of Chinese and British tastes. In case you didn’t know, Hong Kong was a British Colony till 1997. I wish I could stay a little longer and soak in the old-world charm of this arguably futuristic city with frenetic energy. Yes, beyond its soaring skyscrapers, high-end transportation modes, innumerable shopping malls and vibrant nightlife, lies a different world altogether. Go on a walking trail through its remote, rural bylanes and you’ll know what exactly I am talking about. What I just couldn’t get enough of was the variety of food here. From melt-in-mouth dimsums and iced jelly teas to egg tarts, noodle soup and green-tea ice-cream, the stunning array of delicacies available here will leave you in a state of bewilderment. I could extend my stay here and solely go on food tours for an entire week or two. Eat, eat and eat all the local treats till my tummy is about to explode!

For now, here’s my photostory of the city with heavenly food – Hong Kong
