Its always fun to capture images through the viewfinder of someone else’s camera. Not only does it give you a closer and clearer look of the composition, it also helps you know how the other person is viewing the same scene that you are. For instance, when i was shooting the stairs, i was more interested in the inscriptions on each of them, but my friend here composed it differently and found this composition more compelling. So while he was getting his steady shot, i stole his shot. Ofcourse, i showed it to him later, so that he does not sue me later;)
While looking for photo ops in a quaint alley in South Mumbai, one day, i noticed this kid in the trolley looking at me. Suddenly when i pointed my camera at him, he got his hand behind his ears, with his elbow pointing towards me.
It almost seemed as if he was saying, “So you just got a still camera, well, I have a video camera! Now beat that!”
This is my second attempt at photographing a live concert and i have realised that I have miles to go in this genre. The energy around you in a live concert is unmatched and i have found photographing under such an atmosphere to be quite addictive. This was made at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival this year. Prem Joshua and Band had the crowd engrossed in their fusion music and it was a sheer joy to shoot with great music in the background. Hope to get more closer next year round:P
I always keep coming back to Kolkata whenever i am confused as to what to put up on this blog. And 9 out of 10 times, i come across an image that i want to share. Seen here is the Vidyasagar Setu which was also featured on the blog entry Peek-A-Boo where i used two pillars of the Prinsep Memorial for framing.
