Kanha Earth Lodge

The property is close to the Kanha National Park. There are loads of outdoor activities to keep you busy even if you decide not to visit the national park. The food is great with some great service to back it all up. A must visit for someone looking for a holiday in MP, India.

Shooting Star



Shot the iconic Mercedes Benz M-Class in the dusty plains of MP and then up in the Himalayas. The shots were supposed to have a Travel feel to it and highlight the car at the same time.

The River Song



I could hear the bird singing or was it my imagination. At that moment I didn't care, everything was melodious and peaceful and it was a moment in time. I have tried to capture a few more of such moments and I hope some of you will be able to relive that moment through these images. Please let me know if you do as it will inspire me to capture more of such moments.

Corporate Portraits


Did these corporate portraits some time back. The brief was to deliver very simple and clean B&W portraits of the employees.
We decided upon a basic three light setup and the result was pretty decent although the client was more than happy.
Moral of the story: Sometimes the clients requirement is more important than your own creative vision and satisfaction.

Of long lost trails & mystic ways...



















It was long on the cards and finally I managed to squeeze some time of my not so busy schedule to do a photographic tour of the Mystic Himalayas.

Decided upon Binsar considering it has good options to trek around from, good views of the snowcapped Himalayas and I had never been to Binsar, thus it was locked and loaded. Got myself booked at the FRH Binsar, a British era building with squeaky wooden floors and only solar energy for power.

Stayed there for five days and each day the sunrise and sunset were different, not all of them favoring photography but i guess it is part of the deal. If i had to put my experience  in one word and several images (my preferred language to communicate) it would be "Magic".

I have tried to capture the same 'Magic' in these images...

The Itch

Ever Felt that itch...itch to take a few pics asap and you have decided upon the subject too. For me the subject was a deodorant can lying around in the house, black, metallic and with no artificial lights whatsoever i was pretty much dependent upon the natural sun light coming through the window.

Gathered a few reflectors (white paper) and started playing with the whole setup and ended up with this...

Moon

I always look fwd to the five days in a month when Moon is in all of its pristine glory. This time around I was lucky to get some clouds creating depth and drama in the images.

The fun part was that I had to constantly check my exposure as the clouds were moving very fast, constantly changing the desired exposure. And yes it was cold!!

On the actual full Moon night there was not even a speck of cloud around. Better luck next time!!

Some  images from that cold cold night...
