The human eye cannot see flowing water as a velvety cascade or trace the star-trail against the sky. It can’t slice off a moment of a hummingbird’s frenzied wing-flutter. But a camera can. Today’s Toecabulary delves into ‘slow shutter speed’ photography.

Macro photography allows us to shoot close-up, giving us beautifully-narrowed perspective into minutest details of the subject we photograph. With a macro lens, a photographer can capture tremendous, subtlest of details that the human eye can otherwise miss. Today’s Toecabulary is about Macro Lenses.
Visit the pristine mountainous wilderness nurturing the majestic puma among other mammals and birds, and glaciers, lakes and rivers.
The eternal play of light and shadow in making the world visible to our naked eye is perceived differently by different cameras. The highlights and shadows are contained in what is called the ‘dynamic range’. This week’s Toecabulary elaborates the same.
The field of view and the focal length of the lens are inversely proportional to each other. In other words, the field of view is wider if the focal length of the lens you are using is shorter and vice versa. Today’s Toecabulary illustrates the use of wide-angle lenses.
While an image of a scarlet or tangerine sunset can make you feel warm and fuzzy, an image of the sullen twilight can calm you with its hushedness. Today’s Toecabulary will bring you more images that illustrate ‘white balance’.
Enter the surreal icy realms of Svalbard in Norway, a place of dwelling for the polar bear and other exotic animals and birds.
If you are constantly stirred by the myriads of colours and elements the world brims with, how much of it do you include and how much of it you let go when you make a photograph? This week, Toecabulary brings you ‘composition’.
This week, Toecabulary brings you a photography concept that allows you to freeze action, to bring the grace of silky-smoothness to the fiercely flowing waterfalls, to tread the trail of stars as if it were that simple. We discuss shutter speed.
