42. The Yellow Flowers

Due to lack of time, I am just uploading the final selected photograph from last few posts. I realized that I should stick to my original idea of presenting the stories behind the making of photographs.

It is a photoshoot of the mustard while my recent visit to my village. I started with a close-up shot of one flower, it wasn’t that impacting.

Next, I tried to include the yellow flowers as background and then take close-up of one flower but then it lost all of its contrast.

It was very unusual but the best photograph I took is a shallow depth image with showing a lot of flowers close-by.



I have been noticing “frame inside a frame” a lot these days. Here are some photographs taken within past 1 month. For those who don’t know, frame inside a frame is a useful composition tool used to emphasize your subject  using the surrounding elements.

Juhu Beach

Juhu Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Mumbai. It is situated on the shores of Arabian Sea in Juhu suburb. There are three main entrances to the beach. Many tourists make it a point to visit the beach when they come to Mumbai, as it is a relatively uncrowded free space in the city, although it does get crowded in the evenings and weekends. It is famous for its Mumbai street food, notably bhelpuri, pani puri, chaats, and of course pav bhaji.

40. Lipstick

I used window light to get a nice silhouette. It appears like a graphic design to me .


I am practicing sketching to better understand the human figures. This is a part of the study of female anatomy.

39. Light and Life

Taken at my village, I like this photograph for the natural black gradients that frames the mother and the daughter. As I took some time in shooting, they noticed me and started looking in the camera. Photography is a interesting activity as you never know when people will become angry on taking their photograph and when they will start giving you poses.

38. Rush Hour

This photograph was taken at IIT Bombay campus. It was part of a exercise to find the point in time when all participating elements harmonized to make a good design. I took some time to fix my vantage point. As I was shooting Black & White I decided on having this bright ground as background to give contrast.

37. Tea

Taken at Rewari Railway Station while waiting for the train. Composed of two very basic thing in life of Indian people- Tea and train. 

36. Varmala

Another wedding photograph, it was very difficult to take a clear shot due to the crowd but then I thought of using the crowd to my benefit. So I framed the bride using the people standing there. I also like the  pink feathers of the turban of the bridegroom visible in the corner.
