Diwali is just around the corner, and I just can’t wait for the festivities to begin. Not only because I love the idea of spending a long weekend meeting friends, family and gorging on enormous amounts of sweets, but also because it is every photographer’s dream festival. The colourful lights against pitch black skies, the lively decorations in and around our homes & the fireworks are just some of the many gorgeous moments this festival brings. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity, and to capture those lucky shots, you need to be a little more than prepared. So, here is a checklist of 10 candid shots that would help you capture everything and make the most of the festival.

Though great pictures are clicked with the simplest of gear, there is absolutely nothing that should stop you from taking your love for photography to the next level. If you are a beginner and thinking of investing in a DSLR, then you’re in luck. Nikon has some amazing festive offers going on where they’re giving away camera bags, printers and tripods with their top selling models like D5300 & D750 and more. So, wait no more and check them out here.
