    Comments: This is absolutely gorgeous. Five things that turn me on about this visual, The top angle, the deep Light and shade with extreme contrast, textures, black and white processing and the classic diagonal composition being formed out of shadows.

    Comments: This is a very interesting candid portrait of the old man shot while at a wedding function. It was a great Idea to process this image into black and white. The wrinkles on his face adds to his character. He looks pensive while his hands lay behind his head. The textures on the wall and the contrast in lighting makes the image appear more dramatic. From looking at the Exif file Info, i feel that the aperture could have been opened a little bit more to say about f/5.6 allowing one and a half stope more light, hence reducing the ISO to 3200 and slightly lesser to reduce the amount of noise that the high ISo will produce.

    Exif file Info:

    Comments: This is an interesting shot of the old Antelope shot in Kerman Mountain, Iran. I quite like the backlight as its creating the sharp edge of the Antelope. Also it forms a gradient in the background. The Shadow areas have just the right amount of details in it. If i were you, i would have also tried underexposing this shot to make this a complete silhouette.

    Exif file Info:
    Camera: Canon PowerShot A480
    Focal Length: 6.6 mm
    Shutter Speed: 1/1000 sec

    Comments: This is a fantastic picture captured during the tiger dance in Mangalore, Karnataka. The photographer has successfully got the viewers attention at the boy although what they can see is his back. The story is engaging as he witnesses the dance of the performers. I quite like the way the photographer has cropped the body of the dancers in the background and used an open aperture like f/2.8 to throw them out of focus.

    Exif file Info:

    Canon 600D || f2.8 || 1/250 || iso200 || exposure -0.3step || 70mm || AF70-200mm f2.8 LD (IF) tamron lens

    Comments: This is a beautiful shot of the bicycle against the vast canvass. The Sky has a lot of negative space which aesthetically adds to the image. A short focal length like 18mm is apt for a shot like this. The Sky looks dramatic as motion has been registered as the photographer has kept the shutter speed at 1/40th of a second. Also the angle of the camera is such that it is at an eyelet with the bicycle hence enhancing the perspective. The composition is classic. Processing this image into black and white was a great idea.

    Exif file Info:

    Nikon D5200 + lens 18-55 mm,
    f 5.6, Iso 100
    Shutter 1/40sec
    focal length 18mm

    A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

    Rajasthan, India



    Pic by: Mckay Savage

    Location: Rajasthan, India

    Rajasthan is certainly an undeniable photography haven, steeped in royal history, it showcases colourful locals rivalled only by their attire, grand palaces, havelis, festivals and a landscape as barren and harsh as it is beautiful. Jaisalmer’s canvas of sand is dotted with camels, the floating Lake Palace of Udaipur, forts in Jodhpur and Jaipur with sentries standing guard in traditional attire and the Pushkar fair all offer rich pickings for your camera. The hazy morning and twilight light lends itself to surreal images, but then this holds true for most of Rajasthan.

    Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving, what you have caught on film is captured forever….
    It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
