That's where he shines!


Portrait of a hawker sitting across his shop. Shot at my hometown, Ajmer, Rajasthan. If you have ever been to vegetable market (subzi-mandi) near St. Anselm's school, you must have seen him as he owns a considerable area with almost all seasonal vegetables for sale.

Man on Street: Shooting with Flash Speedlight on Street


Shot with Sigma DP2 Merrill and Flash.

Posted from Flickr http://flic.kr/p/J45X1A

I've started using a speedlite flash for street photography even during daytime to light up the faces of subjects. So far its good. I've faced some weird reactions from people when they get flashed on face but its fun! :-)
I'll continue using flash from now onwards. My current setup is Sigma DP2 Merrill with a small Sunpak pf20xd auto flash. It goes well with DP2m. I generally shoot on Aperture priority, mostly at F/8 - F/10 during daytime. Since this flash do not work with Sigma's TTL, I manually set the exposure compensation (ev value) to "-1 ev" and adjust the flash power accordingly.
My next step is to get a trigger cable or wireless popper.

Few more shots using speedlight:

For night shots, I go complete Manual. The following pic was shot in hyperfocal distance at F/8 and shutter at 1/30 (I guess!). Flash was on Auto aperture mode, set for F/5.6. Dp2m's leaf shutter works at any sync speed!

Some more shots are below, but this time using my Nikon D5100 with a handheld flash at remote SU4 mode.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known


A little girl I saw in Lal Bagh, Bangalore. Her parents were probably busy in browsing the shops around while she was standing like this since long.  I felt the joy behind her elevated thoughts while taking this picture. For a moment, it occurred to me as if the world was deeply interfused into her sublime mind and she was well aware of the fact that, somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known!

PS: It is also an example of backlight subject photography using a medium telephoto lens, where light is coming from behind or sideways of the subject. I was sitting very far and my presence was unknown to her. This is one advantage of using a medium telephoto lens (85mm in this case), one can sit in a corner and just gaze around the world and its people, while still remain incognito!

Deep into thoughts


Portrait of a woman, a fruit seller as you can see, sitting next to her cart, roadside
Deep into thoughts she was disconnected against momentary lapse of reality around her
Passing by the same roadside I took this picture
And she remained sitting - calm and gently - deep into thoughts
Disconnected against momentary lapse of reality 
And I moved on...
