  • PMPE – Manang, Nepal Photosafari from 16th to 28th March 2014

    [ATTACH]295361[/ATTACH]

    Once again this year we are going to trek from Chame to Manang, the homeland of one of our Nepali friends. This trek is part of the famous Annapurna Circuit. If you want to trek on around the Annapurna circuit you will need about 25 days. This part of the Annapurna trek offers the best scenery in Nepal.

    Holi Festival
    Our journey starts with the Holi Festival in Kathmandu on the 17th March 2014. Holi Festival is also known as the Spring Colour Festival. This ancient religious festival is celebrated by Hindu devotees in Nepal and India. Devotees would throw colour powders, shooting water cannons and balloons filled with colour water at each other including photographers, tourist and observers. For more information about this Holi festival please go to Wikipedia.

    Trekking cum Photography

    We have trek on this route before in 2012. That time we trekked from Syange to Manang. However, now that the road from Syange to Chame has been completed, we now trek from Chame to Manang (a saving of 3 days trek).

    We will be trekking not higher than 4,000m other than the side trek to Ice Lake or Tilicho Lake (depending on the weather conditions). For an average person, at below 4,000m, you may not suffer AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). This side trek to the Lakes is optional for those who still feel that they have the energy to go on. For those who want to laze around, Manang is the largest town on the trek with good restaurants, cafes and wifi facilities (very rare on the Annapurna circuit) This is also the place where trekkers will spend a couple of days to acclimatize before attempting to cross the Thorong La Pass (5,416m)

    For those joining us for the first time, this photosafari trip to Nepal is a photo trip and not an endurance endeavor. We will be taking time to smell the flowers and meet new friends along the trek. For photographers, this will be an ideal trip because you will have lots of time to pursue those “killer shots”

    The scenic trek from Chame to Manang is one of the best treks in the world. You will be walking along the valley of the giants. Any mountain less than 6,500m has no name in Nepal. On this trek you will be able to meet Annapurna 2, 3 and 4 face to face. I was literally blown away by the awesomeness.
    If you are interested, do not hesitate to confirm your place. The places are limited due to the number of rooms at the lodging houses. If a 60 year’s old man can still do it so can you.

      The Muslim Quarters in Thamel, Kathmandu is a lovely place to hang around especially in the morning. This is one of the Muslim enclave in a Hindu nominated environment. It is interesting to watch the locals go about their daily lives.

  • Exposure Blending and Refining The Edge.
    irenecal
    I'm sure many of you have seen pictures especially Landscapes. The Transition between Sky and Foreground. The Bright and the Dark transition. If you look carefully,you will notice a carefully processed one and the less careful. The Less careful ones are the halos which some may say its ok. To me its not natural to look. That is what I wish to perfect. What I'll be sharing here is to reinforce what I understand…it took me quite awhile to digest. I'm not perfect.Its troubling me for some time. Having A GND Filter or No Filter method? As long as it gets the job done faster choose which workflow you feel comfortable with. In the end is the final outcome of the picture. Below will be in a series and breaks here,through pictures and explanation. I myself can return for reference and comprehend if I forget the steps. I don`t write it down or explain I will forget. There may be shortcuts here and there though.Feel free to sh...

  • Sony Alpha 7 only manages to get a Silver Award
    maxby


    This is the technical tests that many photographers have been waiting for. The Sony Alpha 7, the smallest full frame mirror-less digital camera. Many have raved about its capability. See how does it stand to a technical review by Dpreview.

    This is what Dpreview has to say :- The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. Its compact size, broad feature set and very good Raw image quality make it a compelling option for those wanting a large sensor. Unfortunately,...

  • Soaring like an Eagle ... and Flying with the wind
    digitalartist
    A couple of weeks ago I started a brand new love affair. I want to soar like an eagle and fly with the wind. I've started training to qualify for a licence to fly a Powered Paraglider. You put a motor with a prop on your back, harness yourself to a parachute wing, start the motor, run a short take off run from almost anywhere, and then fly off into the sunset like below :



    The Paraglider itself is an amazing subject to shoot:



    Apart from the adrenalin rush associated with when you put your life at risk, the aim is to shoot photos from a perspective not usually available to most people. Here's a combo selfie while flying a po...
