Self control, which often takes our time to think in the name of Resolutions, Limits, Threshold, Diet, Fitness and lot more. Out of every 100 human being 5 % will not even bother about this, for them its all Today, 1% will get over it and succeed, the rest 94% will keep thinking about it.They keep on taking measures, BUT along with every measures they leave a Loop-Hole that has the capacity to spoil the entire effort. Saddest part is,we leave that Loop-Hope knowingly. I wanted to depict this in form of a picture, since i too fall under the category of 94%.

I don't believe in giving description to my photographs, but for this photograph, i am afraid it may not reach many.

Total hours taken : 14

- 1 hour for unpacking and packing the lights, cameras, backdrop and yea cleaning the room(toughest part)
- 1 hour of shoot
- 12 hours of editing

I was having this idea long back but due to unavailability of that white strap it got delayed .And also because of my laziness.Have to mention it. Last Friday i went to a hardware shop for official purpose where i saw the strap on display,instantly i asked for the price. Rs130 said the shopkeeper but unfortunately i was having only 80rs. Immediately i went to nearby ATM and took some money and purchased it. Then when i reach home i started setting up  the equipment for the shoot. After setting up 2 lights( one speed-lite and one studio strobe) i clicked a test shot for checking the lighting.After the first click my damn studio light got fired with a badddd smell(going to burn my wallet too) . So i was not having much option, straightway pointed my speed-lite towards me without any background light .Finally i bugged my brother to help clicking photos.

Behind the scene:

Since am very slim used that big sweater to show me a bit big :) but even that didn't helped me. Have to go to GYM.............................

Boys in Acton

Wherever i go to take photographs, i used to get good no.of friends. No Age limit.

Human Interest

I don't know how this old man can handle this many no.of goats all alone. There should be a great bond and a special language between them.

People portraits

Its photographers pleasure, making someone laugh and in showing them how beautiful they are. On my road trip in my village i have seen her looking after some 10 cows in farm land. I just entered and took some shots of cow for 10 mins by casually talking with her. While going i asked her for a photo,she was giving blunt poses like below.

 I asked her to smile,she did.Even then i was not satisfied.Then i showed the photos to her and said you look beautiful when smiling. She simple said " ada ammaaaa". Finally i got the shot i wanted and deleted those cow shots. Few shots where she was in complete shyness.

Rim light self portrait

Bought a sunglass ,so thought of taking it a photograph, later decided to make a rim light portrait than a product photograph. Simple setup ,just one light behind on left corner. Reduced the saturation completely. Thats it

Human interest-Homeless

I was landed in t.nagar after a 8hour journey from thanjore(my native). Approximately the time was 4.30am .From bus stand it will take 10 mins walk to reach my home. It was very cold at that time , but i shocked seeing this man sleeping in front of a road side shop without even bothering about the climate. Since i always travel with my camera, i took out my canon 550D and placed 50mm 1.8 lens. Went to my knees to capture this beautiful candid portrait.
