Kolkata Photographer Neel trains his lenses on four city models

Thirty-four-year-old Neel never thought, even in his wildest dreams that he would end up being a fashion photographer. “I was a very amateur photographer clicking on my mobile phone camera or sometimes using my Yashica automatic film camera. Rather, I was more into music and used to play the acoustic guitar and wanted to become a guitarist. It was while I was contemplating buying another six-string that the epiphany struck and I ended up buying a second-hand SLR instead,” recalls Neel, who dreams of being a war journalist someday.

Rise of the other Galaxy

Nikon D5600, Laowa 100mm f/2.8 Lens, ioptron Skyguider pro. This image of the rising Andromeda Galaxy was captured from Kolkata (Bortle 8/9). Due to the severe light pollution in the metro city, I had to allow the galaxy to rise around 20 degrees from the horizon to be able to capture it. I had to choose a lower vantage point to bring the foreground into the frame. Such deepscape images are a good reminder for us about the apparent sizes of different deep sky objects which are not visible with naked eyes. Even at 100mm focal length, Andromeda appears pretty large and its apparent diameter is around 6 times that of a full moon in the night sky.
