Read this and you are a 'Professional Photographer'

Photography for Dummies
I will start by giving you a small introduction about different types of photography which modern day photographers term as "Professional Photography" in social networks. Before getting into the topic, will give you a short overview of Photography before invention of DSLR
Photography - before the invention of DSLR camera.

Nature Photography
          This is the simplest form of photography. You don't even need a DSLR camera. Any instrument which has a camera can be focused into the sky and presto, you're a nature photographer. Take snaps of the horizon, Clouds and few trees and edit it using Instagram. If you are from a coastal region, you have an added advantage. For example, Photographers from Chennai can fill out their 'Nature Photography' album with pictures of the Marina and Broken bridge (Bessy)
Wildlife Photography
          This is little bit more challenging than Nature photography due to limited resources. You can start by clicking street dogs, cats etc and slowly after mastering the art of wild life photography on the streets, you can go to a nearby zoo and try your hand at clicking some actual wild animals inside cages. If you want to be more exploratory and take risks you can go on a vacation to hill station and take snaps of monkeys on the roads. You can also add elephants in temples to the list.
Travel Photography
          Travel Photography can be done when you plan a family trip to your native or college/office tour etc. This includes leaning out of the train/bus window and clicking road side trees while still moving. This produces a blur in the image which can be called as an effect. Once I came across a group of bald heads tagged under Travel Photography with a description "A Trip to Thirumala" which means, you can also convert your pilgrimage to Travel Photography.
Wedding Photography
          Wedding photography can't be done in all seasons. During your relative's/friend's wedding, take along a camera and click pictures of super hot chicks and aunties in the function and create a separate album called Wedding Photography.
Candid Photography
          In candid photography, "edhir veetu aunty, pakathu veetu akka ellarum guninju thuni thovaikardhu ellathayum photo edukuravana ellam chak chak chak nu photo eduthu bluetooth vazhiya polis la pudichu koduthurulam" - By Santhanam

Tips for Photo Editing
--> "Blur" effect can be used all over the picture, except the face. 
--> Change the picture to B&W irrespective of what it is. 
--> Use "Dodge" tool to whiten your skin. (It looks fake though) 
--> Girls can use all the "Word Art" pictures like hearts, star, sparkles etc all over the image.

To become a Professional Photographer in 10 easy steps
Step 1: Create a Facebook page as "YourName Photography"
Step 2: Create a watermark image to add it to your clicks. The watermark need not be attractive, but it should be big enough to spoil the original image.
Step 3: Take photos of whatever stupid ass things you come across.
Step 4: Edit the photos in Photoshop, follow tips given above (this includes adding watermarks at least in 5 different places in an image) or if you are not familiar with Photoshop, there is another kick ass photo editor for dummies - Instagram.
Step 5: Add the edited photos to respective albums in your Facebook page with a poetic description. For example, If you have taken a picture of sunrise/sunset then search Google for "Nature Photography Quotes" and you can always flick a quote.
Step 6: This step is very important for all Wildlife Photographers. You can click pictures of your neighbours dog/cat but depict them by their respective breeds in description and not their names like Jimmy, Puppy etc.
Step 7: After uploading the image tag about 50-100 friends on each picture. This will increase the reach of the photo.
Step 8: Go to chat box and force your friends to LIKE it. Each forced LIKE is an award to your hard work.
Step 9: Participate in all online photography competition where you can copy others ideas to click pictures in future. If you have a huge friend list then you have bright chances of winning the competition.
Step 10: This step is mandatory. You own a DSLR camera? Then you are a cinematographer for an upcoming short film.

Power Star - The Next Superstar?


"Kola kolaya mundharika, power star adicha nee katharika"

          If you are a Tamilan, you will surely know this punch dialogue and also the great man behind this. Dr.Srinivasan, a doctor turned actor and soon to be Super Star is now becoming a latest sensation among the college students. Due to a recent out burst of his die hard fans against Neeya Naana Gopinath for trying to bring the serious side of Power Star, he is now taking rounds in online blogging world. This blog post has got nothing to do with the issue. This blog is only to mention few achievements of this great Legend.

Chocolate Boy Look 
     Power Star is the only actor to hold the record for having highest number of film offers at any point of time. Here are the list of films he has acted so far,
  • Ananda Thollai
  • Desiya Nedunchalai
  • Indra Sena
  • Karungali
  • Lathika
  • Mannavan
  • Moolakkadai Murugan
  • Naane Varuven
  • Pa. Ra. Pazhanisami
  • Poongodi Jannalil
  • Suranga Padhai
  • Thiruma (A) Thirumanickam...
  • Unakkaga Oru Kavithai
And the list goes on and on!
Fan Base
          Power Star has a huge fan following in Tamil Nadu. In a recent Tv show, he humbly admitted that he has around 5,00,000 (5 Lakh) fans and over 10,000 fans in every college of Tamil Nadu and he has proof for his statement. But, according to me he got the facts wrong. He is so humble and polite to mention only a part of his fan battalion. Almost everyone in Tamil Nadu loves him except for few people like Gopinath and few Social Activists.

Fanny Magnet
           Extravagant Dancing Skills
           Athletic Physique (Thoppa excluded)
           Magnetic Look (Gaandha Paarvai)
           Puppy Dog Smile
           Exotic Hairstyle (Wig)
           Inborn Acting Skills
Hit List        
          Almost every movie he acts is a Super-Dooper hit. All his movies are screened for a minimum of 300 days and its a total paisa vasool for the theater owners because our Power Star himself pays the theatre owners for every show they screen. So far, just one of his movies got released and created a history.
First Movie.
"LATHIKA" - (To know more about this movie search and unfortunately "No results found" will be showing up)
And this man stands as a living example for "fight against piracy". His movie's link had never been found anywhere online, till his movie has completed a successful run for about 300 odd days. Learn from him, movie makers.
Idhu verum sample dhaan. Main picture paakaadha. Thaanga maata!
Behind Screens

  • Sponsored "Thanneer Pandhal", "More Pandhal", etc. to people who suffered in summer
  • "Self volunteered" sponsorship for all college culturals
  • Hundred families live in his shade, but he never gains publicity out of it (He himself mentioned this many times in interviews)
  • Discounted treatment to his fans and their families (After seeing his films)
  • Gives life to number of bankrupted banner companies and Mahalakshmi Talkies, Porur.
  • Serious hard worker, attending Dance, Aerobics, Stunt classes regularly and Gymnastics once in a week
  • The most humble celebrity at twitter who re-tweets and replies to almost every tweet from his fan
  • Gives a chance to outdated heroines to perform in lead roles
Last but not least..
  • Ambitious human, who believes Super Star Rajnikanth is his only competitor

          Number of achievements, masses of fans, collection of hit movies. Yet, you cannot even find a single piece of information about him in Wikipedia or anywhere online. That simple this great man is!
(Just after we mentioned about his simplicity and not publishing details in Wikipedia. One of his crazy fans has posted his details in wiki, here is the link to it

P.S. We've collected all possible information about this great man to the maximum extent. If we'd left out any info, please to share it in comments so that every Powerstar veriyan will get to know more about their role model. Jai Powerstar!

Every Birth Has A Reason

Mother - The only visible Almighty

I was walking on the roadside, of a misty dawn
Suddenly was dragged by a flash of a sight
That froze my blood, gushing through my veins
I had no other go, I had to stop.

It was a pregnant lamb, growling out of agony
I guessed it to be a post-coming death due to pain
But it was the beginning of a new episode
That would make the mother sound and pride.

Yes, it was a heart breezing site of a delivery
Of a new generation that was about to sprout
Through the gestation for quite a long period
And perseverance of a soul that always loves.

The Lamb would have been in pressure and pain
But it tolerated every sense of frustration and fear
At last she is a mother then, one of the best
Undoubtedly every mother is the best of her kind.

I never know how the kid would sustain this world
But am sure about a thing, that it has a mom
Even if the world opposes, she’ll bring up her kid
Every kid’s birth has a reason, that to make it’s mother proud.
