Oooh my god, my photograph was SOLD!

{REFLECTIONS} 2nd Annual Photo exhibition by Team HWS - 2012

I am a very active member of photography club called "Hyderabad Weekend Shoots" and was associated from the day this was founded. Every year we volunteer and organize an annual photography group exhibition called "REFLECTIONS". Team HWS (Hyderabad Weekend Shoots) comprises individuals from various walks of life, drawn together by a common passion – Photography. Through the lenses of their cameras, photographers of Team HWS with their energetic shutterbugs explore the continuum of varied subjects and places.

This is the second annual exhibition "Reflections 2" which was held at State Art Gallery form 1-3rd December and  75+ photographers display their work. This photo exhibition witnessed the work of the photographers in diverse fields. It was a tribute and a celebration of the teamwork and we also feel this is a photo festival.

My Picture - "THE SYMBOL OF HYDERABAD" @ Reflections 2012

 This time i have exhibited one of my photograph on "CHARMINAR"  " The symbol of Hyderabad". Charminar is the landmark monument of Hyderabad and picture resembles the signature style of Islamic architecture.Do you know some thing my photograph was bidded by "Mr.Brijesh Nayak" who was a gallery visitor. It is one of the heights of my happiness that "My photograph was sold" and this is for my first time in my life.

The Story of "US"

Whenever you are telling the story of your group or team connect with the lives of your teammates who were part of the it. Strongly emphasize on the points that will arouse the emotional connect.
Use words like ‘we all’, ‘us’ and everyone rather than ‘I’, ‘me’ and 'myself'. Give due credit to the members of your team and the audience will gauge your level of contribution without your self-proclamation.

Conduct yourself as an honest and open person. Your tone must make the audience feel your advocacy of ‘you cannot do it alone’.

I made a video about easy way to "REMOVE SUN FILM YOURSELF". As per the supreme court order, we all need to get rid of tinted glasses and the car decors are taking advantage and charging lot of money and need to wait for several hours. This video will help you to know how to remove sun film with simple tools like blade, paint scrapper, vaporizer and a shampoo or some cleaner. This will not take much time, so don't waste money and time, just do it yourself, if you can. This video is dedicated to all my friends.

Facebook user types and user behaviors

This is very interesting to know this, i am sure we all have one or more of these types of friends on our list. Try to compare your friends list in Facebook and see which type they belongs..

1) The "ROOSTER" –Feels that it is their job to tell Facebook "Good Morning" every day.

2) The "LURKER" –Never posts or comments on your post, but reads everything, and might make reference to your status if they see you in public. ...

3) The "HYENA" –Doesn't ever really say anything, just LOLs and LMAOs at everything.

4) "MR/MS POPULAR" –Has 4,367 friends for NO reason!

5) The "COLLECTOR" –Never posts anything either, but joins every group and becomes fans of the most random stuff.

6) The "PROMOTER" –Always sends event invitations to things that you ultimately delete or ignore.

7) The "LIKER" –Never actually says anything, but always clicks the "like" button.

8) "DRAMA QUEEN/ KINGi" –This person always posts stuff like "I can't believe this!", or "They gonna make me snap today!", in the hopes that you will ask what happened, or what's wrong...but then they never finish telling the story.

9) The "NEWS" –Always updates you on what they are doing and who they are doing it with, no matter how arbitrary, and LASTLY...

10) The "THIEF" –Steals status updates... and will probably steal this one.

11) The "POSTER" - wants to post hundred of pics in just one day!

Pen Innovation

Came across some interesting pen concept. Its designed based on technology called its called "Recorder". This magic pen that converts your written notes into electronic files and then transfers it to your phone and computer via Bluetooth. We would love to write and sketch lot of things on paper every and imagine if that whole content / illustration get converted aromatically and digitalized and transfers automatically into our phones and computers... I bet every one love this idea and this is an awesome great idea.

Not sure about the spell check but i wish its auto corrects using a inbuilt dictionary. This concept is designed by Xia Xiaoqian, Renming Jun, Han Ricoeur, Liu Peng, Meng Bao, Weicheng Jie & Yang Xiao

My design career started with Apple Macintosh Classic.

I started learning computers & design career with Apple Macintosh Classic. One of my fav computer is Macintosh Classic which was released in 1990, which was 5% faster than MAC SE. I like all the features of some applications like Alarm clock, Calculator ,Chooser (for picking a printer), Notepad, Control Panels, Key Caps, Puzzle, Scrapbook and Ipaint.

It was a great fun recently for me being a matured product designer to play around and explore the black & white old application interaction design @ University of Texas, Art Museum. Some how i am in love with apple from the day i have interacted with Apple Macintosh Classic for the first time and still today, i'm loving it...

Useful keyboard for designers

Photoshop is a awesome tool for designers. The flexibility of shortcut keys is something which needs to well appreciated. I am so much used to shortcut keys and rarely use menus & navigation. Found an interesting key board and its very useful for any Photoshop designers. Worth sharing...
