It's funny capturing people quietly and then getting caught. It has this little mischievous feeling and then an awkward stage after getting caught and then a small laugh or just the part where you have to run away. . Remember me telling I'm going to go to the library to disturb people and capture some pictures for a WHP that was like a month ago ? It was for that, never got about posting it up until now. K byeeeeee. Also, realised I post more when I feel like saying "fuck you" to the world.

How to beat a bad morning: Take the speaker into the bathroom, listen to your favourite oasis playlist under the hot shower. This was shot on the phone, not so much of a protip, but a tip: when you are shooting locations with varying light always shoot the areas with the brightest light source and you can possibly always pull back the details from the shadows but if you shoot focusing on the darkest areas, all the bright spots will be blown out and cannot be recovered in post processing, whatsoever. Also, use lightroom to pull details from the shadows and not Snapseed, it does an infinitely better work. Oh and those long shadows of people in the foreground is beautiful, eh ?

How crazy are these staright funky roads ? Only problem with shooting on the middle of the road on a two way road is a high chance of getting hit by a tram or a car from behind lol

Feels matured to be posting 10 shots together, lol. On the other hand, please don't be rough, I cannot shoot portraits. Also, it would be nice if somehow I got to get these photos to the lovely lady; in the moment I didn't have the basic courtesy to show her the shots and ask how I could give it to her, now it's a collection of photos that can never reach her. Bummer. I think it's nice to always ask your subjects if they would like the photos you shot, common courtesy, I guess. Been waiting 3 days to post these, gosh, life's been so busy lately :( will also try updating the description cause it just sounds like me nagging xD Also, my entry for #WHPunusualportraits

Living in India, towards the south I'd have a warm tropical climate throughout the year, never figured what the big deal was about summer ending, cause everyday felt like a beautiful summer day until I realised what it means to have summer ending for good, it's either rainy, windy, outcast or just chilly through the whole day now. How I miss the warm weather :( well anyway, here's something I caught yesterday cause this weather had brought down photo opportunities. The tail lights of the car are in motion with the Eiffel just standing still and these gray clouds move quite fast lying in low altitude, might show a little timelapse I caught too.

As less as I capture streets and portraits, posting them here is a whole different story. But the pleasure to capture pictures like these that depict the creativity of another soul is very fulfilling. Don't be too harsh on me lol, I have no idea how to compose street shots. . @pulpkey #pulpkeyxyou . . . #artofvisuals #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodyports #paris #topparisphotos #folkgood #featuremeofh #featuremeseas #featuremyframe #createexploretakeover #capturestreets #quietthechaos #ftwotw #visitparis #folkportraits #parismville #parismonamour #gs10k #parisjetaime #thestreetphotographyhub #spicollective #WHPdailylife #streetphotography #humanedge #visualambassadors #passionpassport

Just figured the art of light leaks by mistake. It was this big fat iron rail blocking the way of my lens, and fortunately enough the sun was reflecting off of the surface at the same moment, it's similar to the trick where people use a lighter in front of the lens except nothing was literally burning here. Shall try recording how to do this to make it easier to understand, next time. Feels good to be back on the platform after a long long break lol . . . . . . . #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #folkgood #featuremeofh #exploretocreate #featuremyframe #createexploretakeover #architecturephotography #shotzdelight #f4f #watchthisinstagood #like4like #visitparis #l4l #parismville #parismonamour #gs10k #parisjetaime #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #jj_forum_2367 #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport

It feels amazing when I get to show you the whole frame rather than the 4x5 Instagram crop, although I feel they still bring down the quality of the image. The army museum as seen from the Montparnasse tower post sunset. It awfully looks similar to the Pantheon, but has that extra beautiful crown on top within the bustling city. Have a great weekend folks! . . . . . . . . . #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #folkgood #exploretocreate #travelawesome #createexploretakeover #architecturephotography #travelwithshivam #shotzdelight #watchthisinstagood #l4l #like4like #whatkarlloves #visitparis #sickk_vibes #parismville #parismonamour #gs10k #parisjetaime #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport

Do you ever take a picture and question yourself if what you see is indeed real and not a dream ? This was one such moment, the sun had just set, the haze of the city was starting to set in, the street lights turned on, one after the other, from the right to the left, chasing the last light just like me on my usual day. But this wasn't a typical day. I was early, early by 6 hours, had my book in hand "how to explore the city, on foot" it read. I'd zipped it back in after a good 2 hours read and an hour of editing. Just couldn't let my phone drain out of juice that day, cause I knew the sunset would be special. . . @pulpkey #pulpkeyxyou . . . . . . . #withgalaxy #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #folkgood #featuremeofh #exploretocreate #featuremyframe #createexploretakeover #architecturephotography #travelwithshivam #shotzdelight #watchthisinstagood #whatkarlloves #visitparis #parismville #parismonamour #trippmatchambassador #parisjetaime #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport

I barely have anything on my mind right now to be writing here but I'm just going to be a little mechanical and post this cause Monday and I feel like I should be posting. Not so much being random anymore lol. Also, I'm starting to love taking photos after the sun's down. It's difficult, it's amazing. Shall update this later when I can think of something else to write here. . . . . . . . . . . #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #bestviewofparis #beautifuldestinations #jj_forum_2352 #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #night #citygrammers #featuremeofh #exploretocreate #nightphotography #createexploretakeover #featuremyframe #like4like #bestviewofparis #architecturephotography #lonelyplanet #shotzdelight #watchthisinstagood #lowlightphotography #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #thisisparis #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport

I think taking photos in low light is extremely interesting (and challenging). Especially if you have metallic smooth finished surfaces around. It bounces off the source and looks extremely elegant for example, that kiddy cycle in the foreground. Yes, I know the composition isn't the best but hey, just had to get done with the whole dark themed x sunset grids :D more blue skies coming your way soon. Also, 3 posts in 3 consecutive days, damn, I'm on a roll. *pats self* also, have a lovely weekend! . . . . . . . . . . . . #withgalaxy #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #night #citygrammers #featuremeofh #exploretocreate #nightphotography #createexploretakeover #jj_forum_2349 #bestviewofparis #architecturephotography #lonelyplanet #shotzdelight #neon #watchthisinstagood #summerstamp #lowlightphotography #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #thisisparis #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport

Protip of taking super moody visualambassadors shit pictures: Always try focusing on the wrong subject, rather yes, focus on what's not important in the picture or you know let the camera do the focusing, don't even bother correcting it. Then colour grade it to an extent it looks like an Wakandan sunset. And of course when you have the main subject blurred out and it's all bokeh-ish. Voila! You have your recipe for a disaster, I mean a moody picture. Peace Not to offend other feature pages on the platform but ma bois over at VA got ma back 😂 and if all this offended you, here's an unfocused reflection of Eiffel tower post sunset reflecting off of a glass panel. . . . . . . . . . . . #artofvisuals #epicimagez #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #moodygrams #paris #topparisphotos #folkgood #citygrammers #featuremeofh #exploretocreate #travelawesome #createexploretakeover #l4l #f4f #bestviewofparis #architecturephotography #lonelyplanet #shotzdelight #sunset #watchthisinstagood #summerstamp #backpackers #bleachmyfilm #fromwhereistand #thisisparis #heatercentral #visualambassadors #passionpassport
