By: Lily Dechamma on Nov 9th, 2015

With festival of lights round the corner it is imperative that photographers all over will be bringing out their cameras to capture that picture perfect moment. Don't you agree that Diwali presents the best photo opportunity with the colours, fireworks and festivities all around?

We teamed up with Canvera to make a list of the top 10+ Diwali shots (in no particular order) taken by some of the best photographers in India. Take a look.

Deepak Kumar

The night skies of Jharkhand are light up by these fireworks. Diwali is always celebrated with great pomp and show here and Deepak with his keen eye was definitely, at the right place at the right time.

Who says black and white pictures don't capture the essence of Diwali? This picture by Priyanka can be interpreted in so many ways, one being to travel from darkness to light and the other being nostalgia of oil lamps versus electrical lights.

Sauav has managed to capture the essence of Diwali with all the lights. We love the serene look on the girl's face and the play of light.The lamp adds to the beauty of the picture of course.

Anshul Sukhwal

The moon lights up the Udaipur skyline and still holds no comparison to all the fireworks. Rajasthan celebrates Diwali like no other and this capture by Anshul proves that beyond words.

Dhrubajyoti Debnath

A newly wed bride lights a set of diyas to start the Diwali with her new family this year. To us this shot by Dhrubajyoti translates into so much, her first festival with her new family, the start of a new life and an auspicious beginning. Brilliant.

A single diya is lit in Karnataka to signify the start of the festival. Kallur's capture holds so much meaning and can definitely be pondered over long after the festivities.

A lone rocket bursts and dazzles the Pune skies into a million bits of splendor and festivity. Rockets bring back child hood memories, this realistic capture by Chimthankar reminded us of the days when each of us wanted to fire off a rocket, but only the brave ones succeeded. This images delighted us.

Rahul Singh

A chakra hits the ground and sparkles away to glory. Singh gets the signature Diwali shot with this. We love how his lens caught the brilliance of the colours thrown by the chakra.

A groom and his friends enjoy the fireworks on the momentous occasion of his wedding. We love the expression of the groom and those of his buddies.  Only an expert like Sneha would not miss an opportunity like this.  Kudos to her for getting this shot that's going to be cherished for a long time.
