If I would have learned Photography from a Coaching Institute, they would have probably not taught me to shoot these kind of subjects. This is what my realization is. I am happy to be self-taught.

  • My Idea to shoot subjects is simple:


Spot what is normally not seen or ignored, apply Basic Rules of Photography/ Minimalism, and make it your subject.

So what we have here is basically water dripping down from a water outlet from a terrace located at Jawahar Kala Kendra. 


I could not think of a clever title for it, so I just titled it "Fallen Water"


My first edit was the colored version of this. But I could not fix the red wall color in editing. 

Therefore I went ahead with Black and White conversion of the same. 

After a few edits I was happy with the tones.
