My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

India | Friday, 28 October 2011 | 5 photos


My story is on school dropouts of my native district. The photographs depict the story of school dropout children in the age group of 6-13 working as labor at various locations and their dream of continuing education. I wish the children to come out of the clutches to pursue their dreams. I wanted to emphasize the ambience of the place besides the focus on the subject. Composition, POV and lighting are strongest elements in the pictures. I shot the photographs in the morning hours to exploit the best lighting conditions.
Ambience, beauty, and people of my district in southern India have fascinated me. In 2009, I joined with eight other passionate amateurs to form a club “F9” to pursue photography on vacation. I won few awards, acceptances for photographs exclusively shot at my place on various themes. We at F9 volunteered Non Profit Programmes as a gesture of giving back to this place. An award at the South Asia Pacific Oil & Gas conference in 2009 on the theme “Bringing Energy to Life” photo contest encouraged me to spend a significant amount of time with photography. I work with a Fortune 500 Oil and Gas company as Projects Engineer.
My shutters are open for visualization and out of the box thinking .I believe in depth of the subject and shallow to manipulation .As I have been exposed to various working conditions my sensitivity levels to weather, terrain, people, complications are high.
I would like to make a horizontal shift of my career from Engineering to Photography to become a travel/documentary photographer .I can live up to the expectations of the world nomad with my artistic and technical skills of photography. I am sure Jason cannot miss a passionate self-taught photographer keen to explore the fine art of photography.
