Beauty lies in the lens of the beholder
"Pictures speak a million words", oft-heard quote. I agree. The whole idea of freezing a moment for eternity on film or lately on digital bytes, is brilliant. Photography is definitely an art . They actually have courses in photography !! I believe that the best pictures are the ones that are taken impromptu. No one can ever achieve the perfect pose. Photos can depict a array of feelings. Clicking photographs of people can be an experience in itself because sometimes the innermost emotions of the person overflow onto the picture be it joy, sorrow, anxiety or relief.
Every human being is a complex person & this is definitely reflective in his photograph. So if you really wanna get to know a person, don't ask him/her to smile. Click it in their natural realm. Taking pictures of landscapes is definitely what I take delight in. Proud to say that I've clicked pics of Hyderabad & MGIT that no one else would've done. It is one's personal point of view that comes across when he takes the picture. The angle, the juxtapositioning of two things, the light, the climate are all each photographer's toys.
I'm no PROFESSIONAL & have no intentions of becoming one. So don't consider this to be gyaan, all it is ; is my take on photography.
PS: Somaditya Sinha has been my producer, providing me his cam most of the time, Thanks bro !! Keerthi Reddy, wanna become a photographer.... YOU GO FOR IT GIRL !!
