Another black and white. The title is inspired from the title of the carpenters’ song of the same name.

76. Aftermath

How do you see photography? The proof of reality or a piece of art. With the advent of photoshop and developments in digtal technologies this question has become very prominent. Other than showing the reality photography can also be used to create something from scratch just like Painting. The advantage here is that you can photograph the subject directly, so it appears more closer to real life figures and situations. I don’t have any particular favor for any of the forms and I believe that the importance of anything depends purely on situation and what is needed. Here is a photograph based on the ‘idea of creating art’. Go to Flickr for a  better resolution

74. The End

” The Light at the end of the tunnel”, “The end of a long black story when you finally see light” I was thinking of some caption on these lines but couldn’t think of any so finally I decided on- The End. I don’t know from where I got inspired from but this image suddenly popped into my eyes last night. I sketched it to see exactly what I need and then created a small set in my room to make this photograph. Go to Flickr for a much better resolution

Moon Light

This is the complete photo-shoot I did last night. I think I will try to do more of night photography from now on. I tried to use lights in different ways. Do tell how you like the photographs

The black gradient is completely natural

This photograph was black and white, I realized later that it will look good in color but I din’t shoot it in RAW format. Eventually I colored it in photoshop

I tried to include motion in my images by moving subjects and by moving camera

40. Lipstick

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

27. Yin-Yang

“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.”
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

I have been experimenting with the alignments and placement of various subjects in a photograph. Things change constantly giving birth to different meanings and at one instant they form a design very obvious to human eye. To me it is the ‘Decisive Moment’

21. Dilemma

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”    

~Elliott Erwitt

This photograph originated from a sequence of events which  led each-other to finally emerge as a photograph.

I was doing photography to cover an event when I noticed some wooden rectangles which were framing people to give them a separate space of themselves. I took some shots and looked for some other similar framings. That is when I noticed this gate. I observed it for nearly 20 mins and then took 1 trial photograph.

After this I decided to make  better use of it and asked a girl to stand at the gate.

I noticed the glow around the edges of the girl. It was due to the difference in the light intensity on opposite sides of the gate. Light was more intense inside than outside. I decided to make use of it and even exaggerate it. So I switched off some lights on the outer side.

Now to take the photograph to next level I had to decide on what I want to highlight in this photograph. After some thinking I decided on showing it as some kind of dilemma of  ‘to enter or not’ . I switched off some more lights but had to change the model as the girl got busy.

I tried various poses and positions as I had no idea how to depict ‘dilemma’ of taking a decision. Again change of model as this boy also left.

I wanted to try more but the lights had to be switched on. After analyzing all my shots I shortlisted the above one to edit.
