I still watch footage from surf trips I took 10 years ago and, even though it’s pretty shaky, it takes me back to that moment.

I am nature lover. I am very lucky that my job also support me to travel to some very good places like Shillong, Assam, Tejpur, Ravangla. I like to travel each and every place in India to explore more. I like to take it as hobby, not profession.

Photography is all about inspiration for me. When I had digital camera I like to take very close up pictures but I could not. At that time I had planned to buy DSLR with my own money. When I got my DSLR, I did not have word to explain that moment. Every weekend I used to go out for photography to a new place. It gives me happiness.

Moulin Oza is 22 years old freelance photographer from Mumbai, India and pursuing final year of Masters in Mass Communication (specialized in journalism).

Your experience in Photography field?

My experience in the field of photography has now been of 5 years. It started back in 2009 when I just discovered the use of mobile camera phone (Nokia 3600) which could be supplemented also to click the things in and around you rather than taking selfies and photographs of friends and closed allies. After taking few shots though distorted quality of photographs from a mobile phone camera, I switch to Nikonv Coolpix S230, point-n-shoot camera which further fuelled my passion to capture the silent beauty of the nature and some distinct people that exist in our surrounding whom we see every day. In 2012 I switch to a SLR, Cannon 550D which again gave me a reason to capture details of the subject I wish to click with improved mechanism and great detailing, thus helped me to recognized the subject I was much more interested in, i.e Human Potraits and Street Life and now I am specialized in Street Photography and Human Being. That’s the sole area of interest of mine in photography and currently pursuing it.

Is Photography your family profession / hobby?

Its whole and sole a hobby discovered and enhanced over the brief period of time.


moulin oza photography


Which type of photography you like the most?

When I started photography, I captured each and everything which my naked eyes could see. Be it nature, surroundings, animals, peoples, man-made things, environment etc. But as I started pursuing my hobby with passage of time, I discovered that I am developing an interest in particular form/type of photography, which gave me immense pleasure and that was Street Life and human habitats, and in course of the time I started cultivating my this interest and so far have captured human beings on road and their daily chores. Because human being is the storehouse of varied emotions which can be captured well on lens, if you know what and when to captured. Street Photography is the type of photography I enjoy the most and feel accomplish on capturing it.

Your unforgettable photography experience or any special story.

Everything that you experience at some or other place at point of time which makes you feel good and forget the outside world for a while is a special story. But as every person has something different to say about his/her experience, so do I have something to say. One of journey to rural village of Solapur and Satara back in 2012 was life changing experience, where I discovered and tried enhancing my hobby of Street Photography. This trip gave me the freedom to click abundance of people whom I met during the journey and gave me the reason for why I should and will pursue Street Photography in future. The emotion, innocence, truthfulness and no-greediness seen on this faces made me a part of them and influenced me to click them at their personal best without them being noticed. The candid photography gave me some really good shots which remains best of my clicks till date, and made me pursue it till date with full dedication and truthfulness. The Nautanki (street performing group) of one of the village which I capture then on my lens, made me realized the reality and how it’s really simple to deal with it if you have the faith in heart. I loved capturing them and it holds special regards in my term as a photographer till date, because it gave me the subject of lifetime for clicking photographs.

Your own words about your self & your passion.

About me, all I would say is I am a guy who has being in love with small small joys of life. For me achievement never mattered but the joy of putting the efforts and seeing those efforts succeeding has always being the thing that mattered. In all I am a simple guy with a vision and has the faith to turn that vision into a reality. My passion for photography is like worship. I respect my passion and try each and every time to improve it with continued learning and practice. I believe there is always something or the other to learn as life is a learning process and would love to be a learner all my life. Photography gives me high which no other hobby or passion of mine has able to give me. It gives me the sense of accomplishment each time I click and share with people to spread a awareness-sort of among people I know regarding the persistence of such things in our society which we all tend to ignored in day to day life, but are a matter of concern at some point. Passion gives the reason to keep it going no matter what and yes photography gives me the same kind of feeling. Keep on capturing every time you get a chance, because photography is all about that one moment which we certainly tend to lose if not sensed it.

One incident I can’t forget, it was an early morning plan during winter season, and we went out to take sunrise shot. Accordingly, I and one of my friends went to the spot which is a seasonal wetland and unconsciously I entered the quicksand area and fall into it at waist level. I was very frightened but with the help of my photographer friend I came out of it. But the funniest part is that I had to clean myself in car wash service center.

Tips and Suggestions to our members related to your subject.

However, from my experiences now I can say that before going for a photo shoot every one of us should, what would like to take, but, should avoid thinking too much. It is not necessary that every time you will get what you have thought, you might get better than the expectation and also may be the reverse, but preparation is a must, without it you can’t expect good result. I can also say that calmness is another key point of photography. If you always be calm and patient a good outcome can be generated.

What are your other interests?

To me Photography is vast subject and if anyone is as passionate as me, one can’t have any other interest.

Basics of post processing using Photoshop

Basic of post processing in photoshop

Basic of post processing in photoshop

Sometimes we have a precious moment in our lives captured in the wrong way. That is where Photoshop and post processing is used to fix this problem to enhance and retouch our precious, yet less than perfect image to become precious perfect ones. [note : we are just touching these points] In this tutorial, I will share some of my favourite enhancing and retouching techniques. You may know some of my techniques, and others, you may not.

Vibrance : Vibrance is a smart-tool which cleverly increases the intensity of the more muted colors and leaves the already well-saturated colors alone. It’s sort of like fill light,

Exposure : Exposure may be the most common problem in photography. Whether your image is underexposed (too dark), overexposed (too bright), or just washed out in a hazy low-contrast fog, improper exposure can ruin an otherwise good shot.

basic of post processing in photoshop

The way you need to approach this is to mainly drag the Exposure slider to the right until the image begins to have about the right brightness. As you do so, don’t worry too much about the shadows, we will look forward to learn more option of photoshop image retouching.

Duplicate layers in Photoshop when you about to make some major changes, you should duplicate certain layers to keep a safe version of the original, then if you make a mess of the copy you can refer back to the original version.

Choose the Blur tool from the Tools panel in Edit Full mode. Press Shift+R to cycle through the Blur, Sharpen, and Smudge tools. Select a brush from the Brushes Preset Picker drop-down panel. Be sure to use a small brush for smaller areas of blur. Larger brushes produce more extreme effects.

basic of post processing in photoshop

Select a blending mode from the Mode pop-up menu.You have several choices, including Hue, Saturation, Color, and Luminosity. Choose the strength of the blur effect with the Strength slider or text box. The lower the value, the lighter the effect. Paint over the areas you want to blur. If you don’t like the results, press Ctrl+Z (cmd+Z on the Mac) to undo the changes and then lower the Strength percentage. 

post process

Now we have a retouched image using some very basic tools of photoshop. Here we have few more distractions in this photograph and we will learn to remove it using a smart photoshop tool.

Content Aware Fill

What Content Aware Fill does is to replace unwanted areas of an image in a smart way. It can reduce the amount of time you spend working with the Clone Stamp and other fixing tools when you have something you need to get rid of in an image.

basic of post processing in photoshop

Go to tool bar of photoshop window and select spot healing brush tool as showing in above image. Make sure, ‘’Content-Aware” is selected below the menu bar. Use the brush over the objects you need to remove from any photograph.

Lets look on further process…

Here I’ve used the spot healing brudh tool over those blackbucks distracting background of this photograph.

[ note : use smaller size of brush to get accurate results otherwise it may be quite tough ]
