Back from India!!
So I am back from India. Sadly I was sick with a sinus infection for most of it but all in all it was a great trip. I traveled with Photo Quest Adventures and the incredible photojournalist Ami Vitale. I thought I was prepared for India I had been told of the poverty and the dirtiness, however I was not prepared for the horrible air quality and the amount of people living there! It was eye opening. In a way it helped me to realize the things I enjoy photographing–I am pretty easy I love simple scenes with clean compositions. Let me tell you that is not so easy to do in India. I had an image in my mind of the photos I was going to take and although with a couple of village stops I got some of those, for the most part I spent my time just trying to simplify the chaotic. This is one of my images that i surely did not expect to get. I took the advice of Ami and slowed down, found a scene I liked and just stayed with it waiting for something to happen. I turned into a fly on the wall. I ended up getting many images from this location that I liked.
