ABHISHEK GUPTA (26)
PGDM-C, MICA

Students of MICA are not just brilliant communicators, but some of them have an artistic bent and a taste for adventure. Abhishek, a PGDM communication student is one of them. The 26-year-old applied his knowledge of physics to take the perfect picture of stars in the night sky and then set out on an adventure to get some stunning photos of the milky way.

Abhishek says, “I wanted to take the perfect pictures of the stars and their movements at midnight to avoid any form of natural or artificial light. So, once I had perfected the method, I went to a small village called Jagat Manjha. I mounted my DSLR on the tripod, facing the north direction with pole star in one corner. I start taking pictures to capture the small displacement of the stars. I took around 50-70 pictures with 30 seconds exposure. By superimposing these images, a star trail can be seen.“

It took him more than 4 hours to get the perfect picture as he hunted for the perfect vantage in torch light. He says, “The village is really remote and I had chosen a remote spot. I could hear the animals rustling in the nearby bushes. It was exciting and thrilling. And the best thing was the pictures I got were stunning.“
