@arvind, thank you. Your picture is a very nice concept, though I felt it would have been better to have the whole Ray Ban in the frame.

@Veeresh:
Dude, first shot is awesome! The second one has a very good expression, is he some sort of Westerner trying to be Japanese?

Thank you . The second is that of a person from a group who were demonstrating Japanese Martial Arts. They run a local training centre here in Virginia.

HW, Japanese fair images are good story telling ones. Trying to learn something from each image.

Evo, kids pictures are always something to convey. I loved the first and last !

From my morning walk ! 50mm 1.4. Veeresh, this is my first walk on Avenue road inspired by Sukanto and few other BWS guys. It was really good. Funny part of this image is, I tried stopping this 'sadhu' who was trying to walk past, he purposely ignored me and went forward, but some kind of thought made him turn back and come towards me with his bronze plate for donation ! No other guys in the group got a chance

Finally instead of selling my old Canon 400D I had given it to my son. He did not like P&S and always wanted to capture photographs with my DSLR.

Thank you Shaju . The Sadhu shot is pretty sharp and I like the colors. First time on Avenue road huh? That is where my interaction with BWS started. Back in Nov 2009, met up with a lot of folks (including Sukanto) and I guess it was one of the biggest turn outs ever. I love that place. And trust me, you should go there in cold winters as the light that comes through these long buildings is really awesome.

Very nice, clear and crisp.

I don't know why but somehow I'm not comfortable taking photos of people so close up. Any tips for me? How to take such photos without annoying people?


I took this photo this evening. Comments and suggestions welcome :-)

He is a lucky sun of a generous man !! I am not going to show this image to my 5 year old by any chance, he is eying my D90 since 1 year

Its a nice place, I enjoyed the walk and it was my first time there. There is high potential at the K R Market end of this road, but it was too crowded and I really needed a wide angle to shoot in the crowd. May be next time I will explore with a 12-24 !

I was not at all comfortable few months back, but whom you are walking with will change your inhibitions. Veeresh (HW) and Chennai friend Jerry changed my perspectives. Shooting in the crowd is more difficult as its tough to make friendly gestures in a crowd, also one has to be very careful about camera and lenses. Isolated subjects on a street is very easy, smile, talk, shoot and show them what you shot, they will be happy to pose more, unless its a young girl whose father is around, you will be lucky if you can get away with your camera . Another professional advise I like to share from a world famous people photographer: Be part of the crowd, dress like them, talk their language, spend time around so you become one of them. Rest will be easy with the camera !
