"Joy" Mumbai 2011

"Joy" :: 2 Mumbai 2011

Such pleasure to shoot kids, especially when they are all ganged up. Alone, they could be a bit shy, but together - what a lovely joyful group.

This one is a bit high key shot, not intended really. I am learning shooting in fully manual mode and am still to get over my habit of not checking the exposure meter. In the end, I like it... this way
Exposure0.008 sec (1/125)
Aperturef/5.6
Focal Length22 mm
ISO Speed200
Exposure Bias0 EV

Will love to hear your comments, brickbats, pats.. thats my only joy!

Hey Mayank I really like this shot!  Any shot which draws an emotion in me is a successful one IMO.  This one immediately made me smile:) Was this from the morning shoot? If yes I gotta say i didn't think the shot would turn out so well. Look forward to seeing more.

oh yeah it is from the same shoot. It was a bit flat, over exposed. I had to correct the exposure, and bumped up contrast. Added a bit of grain too :-) But then its the expressions of the kids that made it work.
