One of my people shots from my recent trip to India. This was taken in Varanasi where a queue miles long had formed of devotees waiting to visit their Temple. There were thousands of people in the queue but as we walked past, these four just looked like they belonged together.
During my trip I soon realised that India really is a "point-and-shoot" country. Most of my photographic endeavours involved seeing a scene, grabbing my camera, maybe having the time to change a few settings (but not all the time), and just clicking away and hoping that I'd get some decent shots.
When I got home and was reviewing my images, first I was a bit disappointed as my shots aren't that good really.....but I was surprised at the number of people shots I'd taken as I don't like taking photos of people at home. The Indian people were so willing though to have their photos taken, and there were fascinating faces everywhere
I considered cropping out the writing - what do you think? I left it in, as it was there, and the shot is an authentic record of the scene on that day.
I like the way they're all looking in the same direction out of the frame.........does anyone think that the shot would be better if they were looking into the camera? I'd like your opinions please.
