In photography, lighting is everything and so this winter has been challenging. The days are quite short and cloudy and I need to make up for the reduced sunlight with softbox lights. Since my sister-in-law bought my Excelvan Softbox lights, I decided to replace them with these.
Sequel to my previous post, this focuses on the stark differences between Nigeria and India.
In Nigerian terms “India has light constantly”. Even driving by what appeared to be a slum, I notice bulbs shining brightly. The power supply has only gone off twice and I was surprised to hear myself say “NEPA has finally taken the light”. In about 5 minutes, power supply was restored. For someone who has endured erratic power supply all her life, there’s not much to say or compare with here except to express disappointment and pray that Fashola can redeem us.
With the evolution of smartphones and their accompanying cameras, and being named Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionary in 2013, the selfie is here to stay.
