Better Blogging Twitter Chat with #BlogChatter

It started with a generic question to all participants of the chat, which I think is a great way to do a soft start. Like a “Hello, I’m so and so and it’s nice to be here” kind of small talk and then dig into the actual meat of the main questions. I agreed to do this completely randomly. Someone…

Werner Herzog Teaches Film Making

“I am Werner Herzog and this is my Masterclass.” First of all, how cool is the domain Masterclass.com?! Solid gold right there, cornered the market. I first heard about this masterclass on Twitter via an Indian film maker and signed up for it immediately. I might not have watched a single film by Werner Herzog or by the film maker…

Adobe Capture CC 2016 : Patterns

Adobe Creative Cloud recently launched a new 2016 edition and the first thing that caught my eye was Adobe Capture ( which is available for Android! PHEW! ). And the demo above completely reeled me in – I’ve never imagined that creating seamless patterns would be this easy. I miss my branding days, when I would have found more use…

#StarwoodProud

Never having been a direct employee of the Starwood brand, it might seem odd that I am blogging about their #StarwoodProud initiative as the brand bids goodbye after having been bought over by Marriott. But my association with the brand as a photographer and / blogger was so strong that at one point – and even now – I consider myself…

#REDHUxBOMBAY for #GetPepped

In August 2011, I Facebook-messaged a fellow-wedding-photographer and flat out asked him how much he charges. I don’t think I’d ever met him but I’d been following his work and was hugely impressed with the quality of work and art he produced. I couldn’t believe there was someone in India who did work like that – a bunch of us…

TownHall #KhanMarket

Having visited TownHall late at night a couple of months ago, I was curious to go there again. It is a large space with lots of seating options and a beautifully full menu. So when a friend suggested we catch up for dinner at TownHall, Khan Market, I went happily. The service was great. One of the waiters was really…

FrostBeard Studio Candles

After reading about Frostbeard Studio candles on my Instagram feed, I checked out their website. Soy candles and fabulous names like Sherlock’s Study, Winterfell, The Shire and Cliffs of Insanity. I was hooked. I love candles SO MUCH. This was the largest chunk of money I’ve ever spent on a bunch of candles though. Sadly, with the current state of…
