FAQs about SHYAMAL.COM

 

What is Shyamal.com?

Shyamal.com is my personal website. It is designed and presented in the form of a Photo Blog. I make frequent updates on this website. The updates revolve around the photograph(s) that I display on the homepage. Along with the photos, I write about things that interest me, interesting tidbits on the net and the about the photograph itself.

 

How to navigate Shyamal.com?

Use the "Previous" and "Next" hyperlinks below each page to view the previous or the next updates. You can also use the menu on the right to go to a specific section of this website. The 'Gallery' page contains a links to many of my photographs, grouped in various albums. 

 

What kind of photography do you do?

Almost every kind. Take a look at the various photo albums that I have linked to in the Gallery page. That should give you and idea of the kind of work I have done.

 

What cameras do you use?

Nothing very fancy. I use two cameras. Nikon N60 and Toshiba PDR-M25.

 

Do you alter or touch-up photographs using image editing software? What kind of alterations do you make?

Yes, I use Photoshop to touch-up my photographs before posting them online. I don't alter every single photo of course, but I do touch-up many of them. I don't change too much either. I crop my pictures, convert to B/W or dutones and sometimes adjust the saturation. If I do more than this, I typically write about the effects or alterations in the text that goes with the picture.

 

Don't you think it is wrong to touch-up photographs digitally?

Nope. There is nothing wrong in adjusting photographs to make them look better. I believe that photography starts at scouting for a good photo-opportunity and stops only with the final presentation of the photograph. 

 

Can I use your photographs?

Please mail me and ask. If you intend using my photos for a non-commercial purpose, I will most likely agree.

 

What software tools do you use for the development of this Shyamal.com?

I use Microsoft FrontPage for the basic layout and HTML. I use WS_FTP to upload files on to my host. I do all content management by hand.

 

Some credits ...
