par·al·lel·ity

I learnt in school Parallel Lines never meet.
Life taught me – parallelity is coexistance.
Just like 2 people, who can never be the same,
but move on together. Forever.
Parallelity
In Continuation to the series – Love is Green

Herds, Photographers

After taking workshops & seminars for almost 2 years now, I planned to attend one.

After a very long time, I was sitting, listening to a Great Photographer, who had superb understanding of the subject.

But then, give photographers anything to shoot, and thats the end to the ‘education’.
As soon as the Model arrived on the set, the herds of photographers rushed to capture her, forgetting the core reason for being present there..
Maybe this was the part where you become a better journalistic photographer. And of course, those 2 hrs in the gym help!

Herds, Photographers

*Somehow this has become a highlight of most of the workshops happening around in the capital. I am glad my Camera and Lens survived the mad rush! :)

The Lensman’s Paradox

I am often asked to step down from taking pictures in key occasions & holidays. And at the same time, I am almost taken for granted to be available to click the best possible pictures whenever around.

Where do we draw a line?
I have been struggling with the ‘do’ and ‘not do’ for quite a while now. And had finally given up on the dilemma of ‘When to shoot & when not to’.

And one day, the solution came almost instantly. Like it was there, waiting to be explored. When I look back and see the thousands of pictures I have clicked. I feel left out. Somewhere, I feel lost..

The counter-question that solved the paradox was simple ‘How many times were you asked to be in the picture, and not behind the camera?’..

Selfish? Not quite..
Honest? Yes.. Very Much.
So If I forget to send you your picture I took in the mall last night,
I am sure you will understand.. :)
