Say cheeeeese!

I’ve been practicing portraiture in the photography course. The key to good portraits is to ALWAYS flatter your subject (in the picture, maybe verbally too), especially if they take the effort to pose for you. On this India trip, I had a few ‘bakras’ (literally), lots of family, and some unsuspecting but very willing random models, and plenty of practice. No animals were harmed in taking these pictures, but some humans may have been tickled. Enjoy!

  1. आरती , तुमच्या लग्नाला आल्याने वरीलपैकी बऱ्याच लोकांना पाहिल्याचे आठवते . कशी आहेस ? मला वाटते जर तुझ्याकडे आणखी ग्रामीण फोटो असतील तर एखादा चांगला विषय होऊ शकतो . फोटोग्राफी आवडली ! ….. मी संतोष …. (आठवत नसेल तर शोविकला विचार).

    • Santosh, I remembered you after seeing your picture! I have loads of pictures of villagers 🙂 and many of buffaloes (Kolhapur speciality). I think I posted some of them earlier. They locals are very interesting!

  2. Great snaps and witty tags! Liked the Bengal Tigress One a lot! For mine and Souvik’s picture- “Sunny Deol and Shah Rukh Duplicates” would have been more apt!!

I would love to hear from you!
