India has fascinated me – so many bright colours, amazing sights and most importantly: wonderful people. I’ve met so many interesting people during our short trip to Delhi, Jaipur and Pushkar, it was incredible.
I often feel as if I’m a thief, I’m an intruder stealing a picture. But of course, that’s the wrong mindset. I should be confident and happy that I’ve found an interesting character, who I’d like to take a picture of to tell a story. Once I show the final photo to the subject, the person often smiles and is happy – I’ve seen something interesting in him/her and captured it.
So really, as soon as I change into this mindset and openly approach my subject, asking ‘how are you’ and chat a little, it becomes easier to take a better picture. And of course, a smile helps. That’s how I managed to shoot the following pictures of some great characters in India.
Let me introduce you to this men in Jaipur, he was having tea at his doorstep – he smiled at me and even offered me to share a cup of tea with him…
In general, I really enjoyed all the colours everywhere. This men was sitting in front of a blue wall in the pink city of Jaipur, just watching me taking pictures. He waved at me to come over and take his picture too.
Finally, a few steps down the street were four men having a nice chat in the morning – they just stopped briefly so I could take the picture – then they continued as if nothing had happened. A perfect Saturday morning in Jaipur it seems…
Wonderful shots! :)
