Stories behind the photographs

So, they say that every photograph should tell a story and that it should talk or it should make one wonder. Now the thing is I like to get feedback from people who show interest in the photographs that I show to them, I like hearing their views and opinions and it also tells me who they are or what do they notice and prefer.

A lot of people, friends have told me and asked me to write something about every photograph that I showcase to the world. Keeping that in mind, from now on I am going to write something either about the photograph or how I took it. I now have two windows open- on one, I am writing this post and the other one has this photo (see below).

I randomly decided to take the camera to work with the hope that I might click something nice, so I mounted my favorite lens i.e. Nikon 50mm f1.8 and kept the camera in my bag.

Today I was certain that during my small breaks I was going to use the camera and click some pictures and there was a phone lying next to the lens cap and I snapped a few shots. The picture below it is of┬áthe book which I started reading a day earlier, it’s called Blind Willow Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami. Now, everyone takes a picture where the book is in focus and everything is nice and visible so I though let’s blur our that part and focus on something else. Once I got back home, I uploaded the photographs on my laptop and started cleaning them up (like color adjustments, crop etc.) and these are one that I managed to take nicely.

From now on with every photograph, I plan to write something.

Hope you enjoyed reading. Let me know and share your captures as well.

Still Life – Photo Post

DSC00702_3_4_tonemapped-2

I’ve always liked photography and have been practicing it since 2007,that year we bought a Panasonic point and shoot camera.It was the first digital camera with a memory card that gave me the freedom of capturing as many photographs as I wanted,and I did exactly that.I clicked everything,went out captured sky,clouds,streets,people,junk.

I was clicking photographs because I loved doing it,I clicked everything equally and had no special focus on a particular subject,but it all changed eventually and I started putting my focus on landscape and nature and then in 2011 I started using my own home-made lights and setup and I started using lights to control and enhance my photographs and then a year later I was introduced to a new camera with shutter control and then I got into still life photography,tried a lot of times and failed a lot of times.This however is one of my favorite genres in photography.I try to do my best despite the limitations of my camera.I am not a master but yes I’ll be one day.

What do you like,what’s your favorite genre?One more photograph,plus link to one of my earliest still life attempts.
