There are lots of media companies who think that they can do a search in Google Images and use any of the images from the results for their business or commercial purposes.
The Hyderabad based news agency ‘Sakshi ‘owned by Jagati Publications Pvt. Ltd is one among them. They have blatantly copied one of my images from my blog and used in their news papers (both paper edition and internet edition). The images in my blog have clear copyright symbol to my name and have more details at my copyright .
The copied image can be viewed at Sakshi Epaper copy. The original pictures were posted at kids photo blog post .
I have already communicated to their email address about this copyright imfringement and waiting for a reply from them.

I always wanted to take pictures of flowers but there was always a misconception that you need a good macro lens to capture vibrant shots.It’s not that I don’t want to own a macro lens , but never thought of trying out capturing macro shots with my existing collection of lens.I decided to take my wife to the red butte gardens in salt lake city and try my luck in flower photography.I used mt canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens hooked to the tripod. Set the camera in macro mode (I don’t know why I never tried this mode before). To my surprise the new canon 60D comes with more settings when you set the camera in macro mode. I will be writing another blog post on ‘ How to shoot macro pictures in canon 60D’ soon and you can try experimenting with your camera.
So here are some of the pictures I shot with Canon 60D and the canon 70-200mm telephoto lens . Please add your valuable comments for the pictures posted here.

I’ve got an exciting news today for my readers. I am really happy to inform that one my work has been published in a book for the first time. A publishing company was looking for pictures of antelope island birds and they found my blog post which featured a few birds shot at the Antelope Island , Utah.
They liked the pictures and was interested in buying the picture for adding in their publication. I am reposting the shot I published in 2009.
I decided to sell the picture for a price and requested them a copy when they launch the book. And they kept their promise and sent me a copy of the book . The name of the book is Planete vivante and currently they launched in french. They will launch the english version soon Here are some of the pictures of the book which features my work . Hope you remember this shot added in my blog last year.
I hope you all remember my old post featuring Shreya – the cute little baby , daughter of my colleague Namrata and my friend Jithesh.
That was when Shreya was 3 weeks old and now she is turning one this month. Namrata’s mom was here and wanted some family pictures through my lens. We decided to capture some Shreya moments at the wheelers farm and was a pleasant evening.
Shreya didn’t bother much before the camera and I was lucky to capture some pictures of this little Gujarati princess .
