Sunset on a Train

October 22nd, 2010

I love train rides. Something inherently romantic about them. They immerse you in the landscape you pass through. And the gentle clack-clack of the rails and smooth ride make for so very relaxing an experience.

I snapped this earlier this year on a train ride back to Paris from Brussels. I was struck by the unusual colours – the soft shades of pink and purple and magenta.

The Tea Cup

September 1st, 2010

This is a shot from my archives, taken on the plane on the way to Bangalore, India for a wedding in October of last year.

I was setting up to make the portrait of an elderly gentleman and realised that I had packed my speedlights in my suitcase, which was *cough* conveniently in the plane’s hold.

So, I had to work with available light. Must say, not much light on a plane. I ended up switching on every reading light I could find and directing it, so far as possible, in the direction of my subject (which is why there are so many spots of light reflecting in the kind old man’s eyes).

I made a number of test shots, with the kind assistance of my frs. This was one of them. I loved how it turned out.

More coming soon!
