    Question: i want to get a photograph to cover my entire wall.. is this a service provided? is this called by some name..

    think of it as painting but of size of the wall..

    and i want some specific scenaries.. what should i get this printed on.. where do i find this.. any standard terminology to research

      You can make a photograph to a wall paper, there’re several printing companies here in Europe which do that by internet and they do international shipping as well. The problem is in the format – unless you have a very good expensive professional digital camera (like Hasselblade) you need to convert your pixels to vectors for big dimensions printing. Pixels are like little squares which mix in your eyes – they used the knowledge of pointillism when they invented it. You can have it done in Adobe illustrator or Corel draw or other programs. Once you have your photo converted to vectors you can have it transferred to canvas, wallpaper, etc.

      not exactly a camera clicked photograph can fit what you are looking for as it wont of such high quality until clicked with some of highest res camera and printed in highest quality… but as @kerouregan explained in above post it can be done if turned into vectors through illustrator or corel draw but for that you would surely need someone who has worked on the softwares and knows how to play with the photograph as per your requirement.

Lastly i am feeling sooo happy and accomplished just by looking at this piece. Love you all so so so much for all your love and support.

    Congratulations! And don’t nitpick your work too much – the first steps into any new work are the hardest but they’re also the most rewarding. Yes, one day you’ll probably look back on this and find 500 things to change and laugh at your nervousness, but at the end of the day this is something you had a hand in creating, and that in and of itself is awesome. Be proud of your work and keep it up! You did great!

    Very cool, good job!

    I don’t think I could ever wear a saree. That’s like 100x more complicated than a hanbok. Respect.

    There was some background noise that was distracting. Maybe she could just video record herself putting on the saree and then record the narration over it separately (in a quieter room). Then you could edit them together next time? But your editing was really good! You’re learning and doing what you love, so that’s amazing!

      thank you Ally for kind words… am really so happy that i cant describe in words…just hoping things will continue same way….thanks again.

      i told her abt voice over but its like when she drapes there are things which she can only then and doing voice over those things cant be recalled so she preferred this way. also it was lacking of a good mic that cause all the background noise. i am going to take a mic on rent from next time onwards which will help.

I have a good news for you all.. and this time from the world of Photography.
I submitted one of my entry for a contest and guess what my entry has been shortlisted as one of the top 200 and will be shown in an exhibition. Also this contest was judged by some great and well know photographer whom I always looked upto.

I am literally on cloud 9 for last 3 days and dancing and jumping all around my house… just can\’t control my happiness

One of the happiest days other than when i got my first video editing assignment … i finally did the shooting for my friends YouTube\’s video.
I started with being so nervous and clumsy with first video recorded completely out of focus followed by 6 nicely shot ones and some beautiful pics too.

Now after 7 hours of all hard work i am happy and content that i am not that bad as i was thinking before….

So that\’s all for now… and soon as videos will be up on YouTube ill share the link with you all.

\”I Wanna Hear Your Song\”
An absolutely amazing suspense thriller with one of the best usages of Mirrors and Reflection, that too at least twice in every single episode. And I am soooo mesmerized as to how well someone can use mirrors to keep the story going…..

PS…36 hours and 11 episodes with ZERO fast forward…… slept just for 5 hours (or may be 4 hours) but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this drama.
I might start writing more about the reflection and mirror theory (if i\’ll have time)…

To all my lovely beanies who always motivated me and supported me I have another good (may be the best news so far)… I finally got my first Video Editing Assignment where I worked with a video-grapher to make a video out of all her shot footage. It took me 4 straight days to complete it and make one cohesive video (if not great or extraordinary or even good).
Still I am very happy that I could work on someone else’s footage, narrative, idea, vision to make a video to satisfy all of their requirements.

So here it is the video.. please watch and do share your valuable feedback.

    WELL DONE @kdramaswimmer! The mix of the photography and music is so nice! Actually I watched it several times just to see how you edited the music in with the painting.
    It makes me appreciate even more the statues and little road side temples I saw in India back in 2005.
    Lovely work! Here’s to you getting more now that you have a chance to prove yourself!

      thank you Ally… your words means a lot.
      and yes to add artists in last part was to show the bigger picture as to how much people enjoy and celebrate the festival even if its by making idols for others…

      thanks again🤗🤗🤗🤗

I am so excited to share with you all that… i got an assignment to shoot and edit videos for a YouTube channel and I couldn\’t ask God for anything else…😁😁😁

Though she is my friend but still she trusted me to give this big opportunity is an unbelievable thing for me. I had done couple for photoshoots for her brand but never thought she would let me take care of shooting and editing too.

At the same time I am sooooo nervous as I have never been behind camera to shoot a video. And I am studying lighting, camera placement/angels, storytelling etc for last whole week. So that I could have a decent footage to work with in editing as I dont want to disappoint her.

*hope everything works well*

i love Jae Shik-ah not for the actor but for the character. how much depth this character has despite being the one with least dialogues still his presence is powerful.

Good News…Good News…Good News…

My typhoid all cured and finally i took big sigh of relief. Last one month was terrible… with no coffee, only porridge/curd rice etc in diet.
And all that had my BP super low and i was so lifeless yesterday. So finally had coffee and felt recharged (though i am a Tea person but one cip coffee a week is what i live for).

Also now binge watch is completely stopped as i had to start working again. And on air shows are no less than roller coaster that i barely have time to think anything else….

All in all life seems to be getting better slowly slowly….

I saw Doctor Detective name on a site and thought \”oh so Doctor John has another name too\” but then opened the page and found it to be a different drama.

So did some brainstorming to find these many dramas…

1. Good Doctor
2. Romantic Doctor
3. Doctors
4. Doctor Stranger
5. Doctor Prisoner
6. Doctor Detective
7. Doctor John

…with Doctor word in it…

its not my mistake if i got confused…Kdramaland encashing medical world so badly.
