Outdoor Photography In India For The Woman Who Loves To Walk

Posted: April 6, 2016

Outdoor photography in India does not always have to mean wildlife or landscapes of unusual beauty. Our cities offer plenty too.

Usually, when we think of outdoor photography, we imagine that a lot of time is needed; time to travel, savour natural landscapes (mountains, rivers, forests), find that elusive tiger hiding in the woods…

But, our cities actually offer plenty to photograph too.

As a woman who loves to walk everywhere, who enjoys the hustle and bustle of the streets, I love outdoor photography that focuses on the daily dramas playing out all around us.

There is drama everywhere, and colour everywhere around us, if only we take a moment to look.

Here are some beautiful photographs from the streets and public spaces of Bangalore, taken with the ASUS #ZenfoneZoom, the world’s thinnest phone with a 3X optical Zoom (and a total 12X Zoom).

These street art photographs taken at Bangalore’s famous Church Street in full sunlight are so lively and just a little offbeat to spark one’s interest! Keep an eye out for such street art, or even graffiti to add to your repertoire.

Another great place to take outdoor photos is at fairs and playgrounds, where there is opportunity to take photos that are very lively and engaging.

This one of a puppet show at a fair captures beautifully the subtle yet gorgeous colours of the puppet’s clothes, as well as their distinct features.

All photos taken using the ASUS #ZenfoneZoom, a neat mobile phone made for photography aficionados. It has a 4GB RAM, Intel PC level performance, 13MP Laser Auto focus camera, 4 Stops Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a 10P HOYA Lens.
