Photography Assignment One - Golden Ratio

Dear Friends,

I am starting a section where, I'll post some photography assignments. I'll post one theme, based on which you have to submit your photographs. All photographs submitted in this assignment, will remain your ownership. Others can comment on those. One can also submit URL to the Photopage.

The first assignment in this series is GOLDEN RATIO.

Golden ratio is one of the rules of composition. At least since the Renaissance, many artists and architects have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio—especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio—believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing. Mathematicians have studied the golden ratio because of its unique and interesting properties.

Loosely related to the rule of thirds is the Golden Ratio also referenced to the Golden Rectangle. The shape of the Golden Ratio in physical form is supposed to be considered very esthetically pleasing to humans. One of the most interesting graphic forms of the Golden Ratio is the nautilus shell and the way the shell starts from a central origin and then spirals outward around itself until it reaches the horn or opening of the shell where the cephalopod's head is located.

For understanding and inspiration you can check here on Google image search.

To start the topic, here is my submission.

Looking forward for C&C and your submissions.

FOTOGURU and Our Teacher Mr. Manohar Desai Sir, passed away

Our PhotoGuru Mr. Manohar Desai Sir, Promoter, Director and Chief Instructor of Well known "National Institute Of Photography, Mumbai" passed away today morning due to heart attack.

Late Prof. Manohar Desai was a practicing professional photographer and has been in the field of photo-education since the year 1983 and has been a popular instructor among students. He has trained more than 10000 students during the last 26 years. Many articles on photography written by him are published in some newspapers and magazines.

He was the one who thought us how to look from the lens. He thought us, equipment is not important, Person behind the camera is more important. He was the best teacher I have ever met. Without great infrastructure, NIP was a success for decades only because of Sir's teaching skills. More than a teacher, he was a best friend to all of us.

He will always remain in our heart and still we will always miss him. :'(

May god rest him in peace....

Sunset at Tarkarli Beach, Malvan, Konkan

This Diwali, I went to my Native in Konkan. I was in my native for one week but we couldn't go out anywhere due to heavy rains in Konkan. On thursday, rains took some halt and we finally decided to go to Tarkarli Beach which is around 25KMs from my home.

Tarkarli Beach is next to Malvan, Sindhudurga. You have to take left turn from the Malvan bus stand and its around 6 KM from there. Its a beautiful beach with white soft sand. You just cannot enjoy it in one day.
Government of Maharashtra and MTDC has started lot of tourism activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving on this beach to promote tourism. This is a very safe beach and one can even see dolfins, if you are lucky.
