‘Sommer Fotomagazin’ or Summer Photography Magazine (in German), is an initiave from Pixels, the Photography Club of IIT Bombay, to let photographers (whether amateur or professionals) express their stories, in their own style. Whatever people did in their vacations, wherever they went - let the stories spread. We look forward to extending this magazine as a regular feature, on a broader scale, extending its participation and including famous photographers, talks, interviews and other stuff; suggestions for which are invited. We are thankful to the contributors for their support, and no material published here may be reproduced in any form without due permissions.

Shivam J Baria The Bell Kshitij Maheshwari This Photo was taken by me near ‘ The Bandra-Worli’ Sea link. After the endsems, I along with 6 of my wingies planned to go on a cycle trip around Mumbai. A trip that spanned across 15 hours and over 52 kms. We left the campus at 4.00 in the morning. The time during this napshot was probably 7 .00 or 8.00 am.

This pic was clicked about 2-3 months agosomewhere near masjid. initially I wanted to include that drum walain the pic but i realised that it was distracting attention from the girl yet wanted to give feel of music so i choose this composition... i wanted sky as a background but since the place was crowded,i had to settle for much distracting buildings in the background.

About ‘VISION’ - Started in 2011, VISION and held in collaboration with Shailesh J. Mehta School of Managmenet SJMSOM ‘Avenues’; it is the annual roadside photography exhibition, with a huge number of contributors from across the institute, both amateurs and professionals; alongside it, a range of workshops and a nation-widephotography competitions are held throughout this weekend.

So finally i bought the camera and was clicking some random shots. It was some orientation at IIT Bombay and i was still to take that one opening shot for my album. As a music lover, whats better than capturing the music itself. And so, here it was, my first shot, my favorite, my precious... :P (courtesy: lord of the rings) Exif |: f/4.5 | 1/25 sec | ISO 3200 | 32mm Shubham

My friend was buying lan cord at Mangaldeep. I and another friend were standing idle. I was playing with the balloons I had just got from MOD. And one of them fell from my hands. And one of the girls picked it up. I let the balloon be with her. And then the 2nd girl asked me for my other balloon. And I gave it to her. And then the 3rd one had no balloon and she looked so desperate for the balloon , so I asked my friend to give his balloon to her. (yea, my friend too had a balloon :P ) It was worth to see the smile on their faces. :) Taken on 14th Nov. last year. Well, its not a pic with a dslr. But IMO, photography is more about the feelings rather than the technicalities. So, I guess even a mobile pic is good. Ananya

While clicking every picture, I was into the moment. One has to be in the moment. Let it grow over you. Let it alone make you press the button. It need not be a good picture photography-wise, but what matters is that you have preserved it. And you won't regret it, ever, why would you? Utkarsh

“ As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs. � - Sam Abell

Cricket is more than just a sport in India, it is an integral part of our culture. Cricket is our favourite past-time, favourite source of recreation, favourite sport. IT IS AN IDENTITY for INDIA, IT IS A RELIGION! #CricketIsLife

Hamdan Ali Captured it using my 5 MP phone camera. It was at the Al Ain zoo near Abu Dhabi where I was trying to get in closer to the giraffe when a deer came running across to get itself a position in the frame. I thought my camera did a fine job to capture the moving animal.

Through My Lens - Abhey Singh Grewal’s Photography

I was walking down the streets of Udaipur for capturing their lifestyle when I saw this person. He was the perfect blend of Rajasthani culture and modernity. I didn't have to steal the photograph as he was more than willing to pose. (Cover Pic)
