Diya (Diwali) photography Diya (lamps) are used in Diwali (Hindu Festival of lights). Diya is symbol represents, among other things, positivity, goodness and light. Diwali day is a celebration of new year for Hindus. I usually use stock images for holiday card designs like Christmas and Eid, though this Diwali I thought I do a bit photography myself and add more originality to the holiday cheer. The Diya product shoots was set against the black background so that the flame can stand out. There was minor editing in photoshop. These images with designs were customized into into greeting or e-greeting cards for few of my clients.
