As a professional photographer point of view to takes a better landscape photography, you can only shoot two times. In order to get a good landscape, you shoot early in the morning and evening, so keep in your mind to get planing in your traveling,anyway. The other time is as well as good for documentation or photo-journalistic purpose, but to get ‘Dreamlike Landscape Images’ using those magic times to get an amazing result. Keep in your eye to draw by lines, angles, textures, contrast and light with the right compositions and aesthetics that is very important to takes Dreamlike Landscape Images.

MORNING TIME: About 15 minuets before sunrise and than form 30 minuets afterward.

EVENING TIME: About 30 minuets before sunset and than form 15 minuets afterward.

WHY: Because it’s the only time you get the soft, warm light and shadows, that’s given you professional quality lighting for landscape photography. Professional Landscape Photographers shoot at those two time of day. It’s a golden rule of landscape photography.

CAMERA SETTING & OTHER THINGS: Aperture Priority (AV), Manual (M), Program (P) and Landscape mode is better for shooting time. Must shoot in RAW mode for viewing purpose to shoot in JPG mode. ISO setting is to set up 100 up to 800 it’s depend on level of light. Set up your camera into Auto White Balance for avoiding other compilation. Lenses are use Normal, Standard Zoom, Telephoto and Wide-angle lenses, it’s depend on your lenses accessibility, try to get maximum f-stop (Depth-Of-Field, DOF) keep in your Flash to use it if necessary for fill-light and must use in your Tripod.

The Spirit of School | Bangladesh | Work in Progress . . .

In the story, a popular Bangladeshi comic character called Meena (girl), desire for an education but initially has to stay at home to help with the housework. But by the end of the story, Meena’s relatives realize the value of education and the earnest young girl heads to school with her younger brother. The focus on education is evident among policymakers across Bangladesh who are taking measures to achieve a 100 per cent literacy rate within the next decade.

As per the latest literacy survey report of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS), the country’s literacy rate of the population aged above 15 reached 59.82 per cent while the illiteracy rate is 40.18 and the literacy of women is 55.71 per cent.

The education system and structure of Bangladesh has three major stages-primary, secondary and higher educations. Primary education is a 5-year cycle while secondary education is a 7- year one with three sub-stages: 3 years of junior secondary, 2 years of secondary and 2 years of higher secondary. The private schools also receive strong financial support from the state. The tertiary education (3-5 years) is provided through universities (31 public and 51 private universities) and affiliated colleges under supervision of University Grants Commission. Establishment of private universities has gained momentum in recent years. At all levels, students can choose the medium of education from Bangla or English.

The constitution is the fundamental law of the country it serves as a framework of all others laws. According to the Bangladesh Constitution article 17 Free and compulsory education. The State shall adopt effective measures for the purpose of –

a) establishing a uniform, mass-oriented and universal system of education and extending free and compulsory education to all children to such stage as may be determined by law; b) relating education to the needs of society and producing properly trained and motivated citizens to serve those needs; removing illiteracy within such time as may be determined by law.

This project was a challenge for me as I had to document the subject in a different way than I did before and continue in upcoming days. I feel this challenge has taken the whole project to a new level.
