Stretch it Out
Kamal Rana, New Delhi

What made me shoot this: At a local park in Puducherry, I observed health enthusiasts engaged in various forms of exercise. What fascinated me was how this scene was layered with people doing the same thing in different postures.

What I learnt: Once you know a picture is forming, you should spend a lot of time at the place until you are able to capture it.

Pensive Moods
Pratiksha Suryawanshi, Mumbai

What made me shoot this: I have always liked the architecture of this particular building in Mumbai and the man sitting outside, perfectly complimented it. I also like the confidence of the man staring directly into my camera without being conscious.

What I learnt: Take your time composing the frame. It is just as important as timing.

What made me shoot this: Early mornings at Park Street, Kolkata, are filled with different types of activities. When I saw these athletes training, I observed a pattern emerging. The divider pole perfectly added symmetry to the stretching athletes.

What I learnt: Don’t take photography too seriously. You will need to clear your mind to find patterns and symmetry in a frame.

Say Cheese!
Shambhavi Ratnam, New Delhi

What made me shoot this: Everything came together perfectly in the making of this image. As soon as I whipped out my cellphone to photograph these children, they started mimicking my action with their own toy camera. The gentleman dressed as Charlie Chaplin in the background simply elevated the frame.

What I learnt: Moments don’t require high-end gear to capture them. You should not miss a great scene because you feel you don’t have the ‘sufficient’ gear.
