About the Image(s)

A candid shot of the ladies of the tribal area near Hyderabad, India. A group of 6-7 ladies were called as models for a photo workshop. They arrived in a boat. & when they arrived, looking at many photographers, they among themselves were talking something and laughing. That time I captured this shot.

Canon 6D, 24-105 len, f 5.6 1/320 , ISO 400

Vinaya, what a lovely and happy image. Indeed their outfit gives their ethnicity and place in the world. The image is sharp, and the colors are very vivid. Non distracting background.   Posted: 06/04/2024 09:31:15

Vinaya, you certainly captured the warmth between these two very happy women. Your photos always seem to move me, as this one did. Terrific.   Posted: 06/18/2024 00:26:58

Vinaya - this is so much more than a photo of 2 happy ladies! They have character in abundance, but more imports for Travel, there is so much detail of their culture to admire and enjoy. F5.6 threw the background nicely out of focus which helps too.   Posted: 06/21/2024 12:44:31
