I was not sure whether I would be able to post this month’s challenge entry on time. We are on vacation – in India! Yay!!
Fashion, or rather, capturing fashion, is not one of my strong points. I prefer photographing still life – things that do not have moving limbs and definitely, not a mind of its own.
There are a number of paths I could have chosen for this challenge. But appearing in front of the camera was out of the question – not very good at selfies. I really wanted to capture some shots of the bustling fashion bazaars in India, but we just got here and shopping hasn’t happened yet.
Then I remembered that fashion is not just about clothes and shoes. Isn’t it more about personality than anything else?
So, I present you this dashing, young gentleman – our darling Boy. He is going through a punk rock phase right now.
Presenting, the great hawk!
PS: Remember that he is only 4! Remind me to look back fondly at these days a few years from now.
And yes, true to the challenge, I styled his hair myself, though it happened a couple of months back, before the vacay.
I am always at a loss while photographing indoors at night. I had to use fluorescent lighting, because there was no way I could capture the details in a softer light. Remember, what I told you about subjects with squirming arms and legs? Which meant I had to use a faster shutter speed, so I needed more ambient light.
Ok, done with the excuses now! Hope you enjoy the pics. And the attitude!
And yes, I am shamelessly exploiting a basic human tendency to melt at the sight of a cute kid’s pics. Hahaha (insert sinister laugh)!!
Before you go, be sure to check out the other posts at these participating blogs. I am so excited to see what the others have come up with.
As always, please leave your feedback, let me know what I could have done differently, and be sure to check out next month’s post on the concept ‘Light’.
