A Diwaali night with Nokia N8

[tweetmeme source=”nkumar_” only_single=”false”]

There are some of the shots that I taken on Diwaali night. Though I am not an expert on photographs, otherwise it would have been better as such lighting conditions as it takes a lot tweaking with settings like exposure conditions etc and I haven’t gone through that.


I really want to get in touch with some photographer experts to know that was it better if I would have kept the light exposure settings  on low or high?


People across India celebrate this festival in their own ways, but soul of the festival is the same and so the joy is.


While in good lighting conditions, taking shots give you sharpness, in night, when you might be shooting without flash, all the points goes on the fact that how steady your hands were and what angle you chosen.


Wide angle shot on 9mp.


A simple Rangoli …


I am really thinking to read some books on lighting conditions and how to play with them.


I have not seen much shots from my fellow bloggers on Diwaali, so I thought to put a tradition #diwaaliN8


Without flash night Macro Shot in not so great light conditions.


Taken a lot of shots only these only.


The Hindu idols …


I am intentionally keeping Flash off all the time.



Check the difference between the flash and no flash shots. What about the above idea of lightening?

These fireworks shots are too difficult to take when you keep the camera on Automatic settings like I did with my Nokia N8.

Anaar shots. Too many sparkles to handle on automatic settings.


Fireworks and fumes …


So these were my Diwaali shots, how were yours and what you think I should have improved on? Please let me know.

    1. Yeah.. I also think that I should have posted it in Flicker so that Meta info would be showing clearly.

      Let me remind you, its not the best of Nokia N8. Just some casual shots.
