This is a shot from the previous photowalk at Mahabalipuram beach. Where a group of us photographers shot to capture some exciting beach surfing moments. Most of the others captured some awesome surfing action. While I was rather doing that which I love the most in photography, portraits and HDR.
KIDS AT THE BEACH
While walking down towards the sea there’s this narrow street through which we had to pass through. There were a lot of houses, shops and hotels to be seen on the way. That’s where I saw these kids. They were talking to some women there. They all must’ve been family, or just neighbours. I went up to the kids and asked for a picture. Very shyly, after a little persuasion from the women there, they agreed to pose. That’s when I got this.
Nothing complex in this shot. The procesing done here is very simple and I did it all in Nik Silver Efex. I increased the structure to 100%, tweaked down the levels and curves graph a teeny little bit, and added vignette.
