MOM AND DAD
This was originally a view point from this garden in coorg. I forgot the name. But what I remember is, the name translated as “The King’s Seat”. Apparently this was the place where the king, in those days, used to sit and think about stuff. The place where he would apparently sit was over looking the gorgeous landscape of Coorg. Just when my parents were about to pose for a picture with the view in the background, one of screamed and suggested that they make a Titatic pose. That’s when I got this.
MORE TO COME
I’m still in the process of processing images of the latest trip that we made to coorg. It’s an awesome hill station in Karnataka. Around 6 families, all of who are my relatives, made a trip there last week. Another few pictures to go. But I’m impatient to share one particular picture from the trip. I had told this in one of my earlier posts. Just like any of my shoots, I shot countless number of frames. But there will be at least one picture that stands out of the lot. That makes me feel proud of what ever it is I do. This is one such picture. That’s why I thought of sharing this separately. Because I thought it deserved such attention.
The beauty of this photograph is
20% processing and
80% is that smile of my mom. She’s the show stealer here. 🙂
The expression of your subject matters a lot. Especially in portraits. That is what defines the kind of mood that you want to create in a photograph. When were walking through the garden, with thin rain drizzling, and the cold breeze all around, we were all in a delightful mood. And that’s just exactly what has reflected here. Again, the original shot may not seem impressive. But the moment I removed the distraction of colour, the focus just came down to the subjects in the image and their smile. Thus reflecting that exact delightful mood when the picture was taken.
