[Photo Multiplicity]~When 7 = 14 :))))

I tried to dabble with the multiplicity technique, with as many as 7 gals in the fray. Turned out pretty decent.

And well, how did I do it?
I’m going to show you all as to what (and how) I did last weekend when I went on a trip to Kodaikanal with my crazy gang of friends! What better models than our own bunch of friends???!! πŸ˜€

There were 7 gals, all of whom wanted to be featured in an overtly hyped (by me) photography technique called Multiplicity. πŸ˜€

I had not carried my tripod nor was there any flat surface to keep the camera on. So I had to sit still making sure that I didn’t move the camera after I had fixed the frame. The frame I fixed were the three stone benches on the lawn at the guest house we stayed overnight.

For the first shot, the gals were all asked to sit on the three benches.

For the second, for lack of any other ideas (there were too many objects already in the frame to think of any theme or message) they were all asked to stand right behind and look at the place where they had sat down in the first shot.

And then when I got back home, I merged the first shot with the second shot using the Adobe Photoshop using layer mask & brushes (took me about 20 mins).
After merging, I opened the merged picture in Picasa and applied the ‘Vignette’ frame! Below is the final image! πŸ˜€

[Photo-Blog]~Of a Mare and Multiplicity!!! :)

I’ve been short of words off late. Call it the lack of time, the busy at work or the simply plain-n-lazy – I haven’t been able to write and publish a single post here for like over a month now. So here I am posting two pics, just to feel satisfied that my blog isn’t all that dormant!! πŸ™‚

Pic #1: This shot of a horse mare was clicked at Rameswaram, South Tamil Nadu.

Pic #2: Tried this photography technique called ‘Multiplicity’. It required a lot of patience though, for both the model in Su and the photographer in me!! πŸ˜€

And it rained…

It rained in Chennai on April 30th evening, much to all our astonishment and relief. I couldn’t enjoy the rain in peace, as I was on my way home – to Bangalore. πŸ˜€

But then I did enjoy getting dirty..some heavy vehicle splashed the water logged on the road while I myself walked into some slush and had some fun (its a different story that there’s wasn’t any other way to get out off there!!) πŸ˜€

Awaiting more rains… πŸ™‚

A ‘cricket’ visited my home as the IPL matches were going on..was it a sign of the ‘rains’ being on the way!! πŸ™‚

Photo Walk @ the Marina Beach, Chennai! :)

I did something for the first time today, and felt good about it. πŸ˜€

“What are you doing here man, at this hour?” I asked my roommate, as he stood right next to where I was sleeping. (psst…I am not afraid of ghost, so wasn’t startled.)
The time was 3:45am today morning.
“Are you coming for a walk? I’m not feeling sleepy” he said as put his shirt on.
“Hell no..I’ve to wake up anyways at 4:30…you carry on” I said and shoo-ed him away.
But then, I just couldn’t get back to sleep. So I got up, took bath and was on my way to the Marina beach – by 5am.

I was going to attend my first photo walk. Armed with my Canon XIUS 80 (it’s a point n shoot…a basic camera…n for an update, recently its LCD display had a cross sectional crack too…) I reached the venue – Gandhi statue at the Marina Beach, Chennai – much earlier than any of the other folks did. For starters, this photo walk by initiated by my company’s photography community. Some of the pics I took, can be found below πŸ™‚

We walked for about 90 mins before the heat (April is hotter and May is hottest in Chennai, rest of the months its hot πŸ˜› ) started taking its toll on us. We reached back to the starting point, onboard a MTC (its a high class local bus, and am not kidding) to collect our parked vehicles. Overall it was fun…do try for sure, if you get a chance anytime! πŸ™‚

This was shot at around 5:45am…when the sun was just about to awake the world this side.

The Gandhi Statue – in close up – with crows sitting (and doing what not) on it!!

The first rays reaching out to us…

The setting up for a close-in shot! πŸ™‚

The boats come back to the shore at sunrise, after a late night or an early morning round of fishing!! πŸ™‚

Listening to music, watching the sun rise…

A group of athletes at their warm-ups…

The patrolling cops on their horses…

This puppy was cute..readily gave poses to our cameras! πŸ™‚

Some of us, walking the talk…in between the shots! πŸ™‚

This was the scene at 8am…it seemed like 12 noon, with the sun almost right above our head and radiating hot waves!

We departed after a round of breakfast…and I was back home by 9 30am! πŸ™‚ Loved the experience! πŸ™‚
