A couple framed under the arch of Karl Schmidt Memorial, at Elliot’s Beach, popularly known as Besant Nagar Beach in Chennai. In Dec 2009, I visited Chennai to meet some friends and we went for a stroll at the Besant Nagar Beach. It was a cool, cloudy, winter evening….a rarity in Chennai. It reminded me of the start of monsoons in Mumbai…a place which will always be close to my heart. The couple under the arch also reminded me of the countless couples one could see on most days, but especially on such beautiful, cloudy evening, at various sea-facing places in Mumbai.
At the time, I owned a simple (by today’s standards!) digital camera, a Sony-DSC W50 with 3 x optical zoom and 6 MP. This photo is actually a crop from the original one. In a future post, I would probably discuss basic editing and processing effects one could use to make even simple images look more interesting.
Silhouettes Photography is an interesting way to capture different perspectives. This picture was taken during our trip to Joshua Tree National Park during a very sunny afternoon in March 2011. And as many of you would know, a bright sunny afternoon is not the best time to take good photos. There is too much detail, less focus (on the subject) and less contrast in the photos.
And most of us travel with time constraints. We cannot stay in a place for too many days, spending too many mornings or evenings for just the right light, just the right moment. Hence, one needs to learn, how to use the camera well, to make the most of what you have and what the nature offers you 🙂
