Love your photos, Mathai. How did you get them to be so sharp?

Mathai said...

Intlxpatr: thank you so much !
Well for most night shots I use a tripod. Some of the pictures here have been taken that way. But the most important thing to get a sharp picture is to accurately focus on the subject you're shooting. It helps if you have a manual camera, otherwise you have to position the subject within your camera's focus points.

somthing tells me you've got a lot of time in your hands Mathai.. am assuming no kids!!!

Nice pics Mat.

I too hav the same doubts as 'Purple'. No kids eh?. You seem to hav way too much time in ur hands mate.

Long desert drives....short mumbai trips...flashy fishes....lots of snaps with n without flashes.

All those are a luxury to me now....or atleast till the smallest one, learns to use the 'potty'.
