A weekend at the markets of Bangalore and Mysore
« on: December 18, 2018, 05:49:03 »
This is from my recent trip to India. I spent the weekend in Bangalore and Mysore, between customer meetings.
No need to elaborate about the contrasts found in India, between amazing modernity and blasts from the past.  And there is no message here, I just like the atmosphere and the people in markets. I already did when living in France!

forgot to mention: all done with my X-T1 and the 18-55mm kit zoom. if only it could focus faster! I probably need to learn how use autofocus propperly, as I usually shoot with MF lenses.

You sensually show the richness of the harvest these people yield putting their land to use.
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Excellent street photography.
Curiously, I prefer the second set to the first, as it's photos seems to be grittier.
Very well done.

You've done a great job protecting the whites at SR but not
a good one at retrieving the blacks in PP in most cases.

My pick would be #4 of the first set and #7 of the second. :P
Light is free… capturing it is not!

Very impressive work, especially the second series,  great portraits and you can smell the market (Chickens)

Wonderful captures of the daily life in India.  You stuffed intriguing details into the frames successfully.  Love the musical instrument shop!
