This photo is of the “Aakash-Kandeel” in our balcony as we are getting ready to celebrate the festival of light – Deepavali.
Would like to thank Sudhir for his photography video tutorials which taught me many things and the best I like was the “metering” concepts. It gave me an in depth knowledge about the metering, use of stops ( up or down) and best use of settings in different lighting conditions compared with the surroundings & subject tonality and colors. Now I am not afraid to go few stops up or down and use it with an understanding & pre-visualizing the final photo before clicking it.
Also use of other basic concepts, back button focusing is being practiced and it has given good results. The learning material has certainly helped me to understand concepts better way than to read the material available on net. Thank you Sudhir.

Good try Rahul….it would have been better if the bird stood out rather than getting merged with the background distraction. and the tail part.
