We received a couple of photos from Akash out of which I have selected a few and I have also added the reason , for them being selected.
This picture has a brilliant perspective. I congratulate the photographer for bringing out this essence in the truest form. The way he has played with the focus is truly commendable. Furthermore, the very subtle bokehs on the subject’s face adds a feeling of nirvana and makes the picture even more interesting. The textures on the face below the lips look really nice and bring about a certain uncanny sense of rawness.
This picture has been framed very well and the pleasant hues are very soothing to the eyes. The texture on the board on which the butterfly is placed looks superb; however, I feel the texture of the water has been overdone. Another way in which the picture could have been made to look better is if the shadow of the butterfly would have been kept complete. The shadow is a very interesting and an integral part of the picture and hence, would have made the picture complete.
This picture exhibits two factors of composition brilliantly: the use of space and the use of noise. The tadpoles generally fill up the frame, yet there is a little amount of space at the top right hand corner of the frame. This gives a sense of motion. Brilliant framing! Also, the addition of noise works very well for the picture. It prevents the picture from looking static. Very well thought of!
One word. Simplicity. Simplicity is painted all over this rustic face. Conversion to black and white has managed to enhance this emotion and perhaps, that is what makes this picture more conversational. It’s got almost all the ingredients of a perfect portrait. The lines and contours on the face have come out very well due to the monochrome frame. The tonality of the picture is perfect and has a very proportionate share of all three shades: black, white and grey.
There are certain forms of art that you do not analyze. You just observe and bask in its splendour. This is one such form of art. Needless to say, this is my favourite picture of the lot. Brilliant perspective! The top angle brings out the emotion of innocence and inquisitiveness very well. Look at those eyes and tell me you are not moved – you’d be lying if you manage to utter such a phrase. Again, the black and white works brilliantly. The arm of the elder adds the feeling of strength and support that are absolutely essential for a child. Very commendable!
As a photographer myself, Akash, I congratulate you on having captured such a brilliant frame.
