Of photography

Oh, what a week! I’ve been out and about so much that I can’t even recall what I’ve been up to! Which suits me just fine. I’ve realized I’m happiest when I’m busy. Not that I don’t have time to get bored, that could never happen. I vaguely recollect whining about it in the recent past. But all in all, though I can’t exactly quantify what I’ve been doing this summer (and though my to-do list still remains unscratched), I’m quite happy with the progress I’m making (again, not quantifiable. Or explicable. You get the drift.). And I have a feeling it’s going to get better.

On Monday, me and the best friend conducted our first-ever photo shoot with a model, a concept, 3 stools, a carpet, an umbrella, 2 cameras, flowers and three bagfuls (is that a word?) of stuff. After a lot of brainstorming and photostream browsing, we finally managed to zero in on a levitation concept that seemed too awesome to be true. But we couldn’t find balloons. Sniff.

Shooting was fun, minus all the greasy-haired, cell-phone-waving, gaping, gawking guys that come to a pretty place like Nehru Park for some reason that I have failed to fathom. At least the ones without girlfriends. We got a pretty clear view of what the ones with girlfriends come there for. For once, I was pretty thankful that I’m near-blind without my glasses. 

But anyway, check out what we came up with! I’m pretty proud of us, if I say so myself! I couldn’t use Photoshop to save my life till four days back, but today I did a nice little editing job while talking on the phone at the same time. Ah, I knew it, if so many others could do it, why on earth wouldn’t I be able to? So there you have it, a sample for all the lazy gophs who don’t like clicking the links so painfully provided to view:
