Udaipur City Palace at Night
The unfortunate part of night photography is: you take innumerable photos with minor variation in settings; at the end of it you have only a few winner shots!
Without a tripod, and slow exposure settings of camera, one has to have extremely steady hands to get some good shots or else place your camera on a firm base and click which is what I did. Frankly, I have a stack of blurred shots from that night and here I am sharing three of the night shots of the illuminated Udaipur City Palace that came out reasonably well.
The Sound and Light of the Udaipur City Palace is one stupendous show one shouldn’t miss if one is sightseeing there in the city. The history of Mewars, stories of courage under duress, sacrifices and triumphs are narrated, with various sections of the palace getting lighted at different times and with dramatic sound effects, an ultimate combination of visual and audio treat. Huge amount of coordination, research and thought must have gone in to the making of the hour long show. I never found the subject ‘History’ so interesting before.
Well, I have learnt a lesson: always carry your tripod along with you, even if that means less space for souvenirs on your way back. I am yet to perfect my skills in this. Do leave me some tips on night photography.
