The hands of a master, originally uploaded by photoholic_royd.
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art” - Leonardo Da VInci

While shooting the documentary, we met a woman named Chapi, who is a Warli painter.

More information about Warli Art

While she painted the village school for us, she told us about her life, her children and grand children, her village, and about Warli painting. It was very touching to spend time with Chapi and to learn about a different art form.

To know more about Chapi, hang in there for our documentary to be ready.

Over the fields, originally uploaded by photoholic_royd.
This image was taken at Vavepada which is a tiny village off the town on Palghar.

I had been shooting with my 50mm f/1.4 AiS lens before this so I had my camera on manual mode. I changed to the kit lens and saw this kid at the window. I completely forgot about adjusting exposure and just made this image. I'm happy with the way it turned out though.

A window of opportunity

This is the 2nd picture from my D90 Project. The 1st one is not that impressive.

I called Reshma to do the narration for the documentary I am working on. After a long day of work we finally decided to take a few pictures and unwind. This was taken on the spur of the moment.

I have also started working more with RAW files and practicing my NEF editing techniques. So far, I am finding RAW files to be really helpful. Although my PP skills aren't at a level where I can squeeze the best detail out of an image, having the ability to control how a picture turns out is worth it.
