Revising the notes of yesteryears, I came across Chiaroscura,
Why we use low key , to get
more modeling and more chiaroscuro
effect. Then anything else,
it is not necessarily to suggest the dark alone though it does work, but
I think , more of the 3 d image arises from the low key YA ?
and oh ya yours Truly

It is that time of the year,
a week of interacting with wonderful kids and instructors, to make some new
pals that will stay the course and a week to recharge myself with new ideas of
the kids that I get to teach photography
They never cease to surprise
me with the changing youthful ideas and I learn as much as I teach a fair
exchange I say.

RAINS RAINS more rains in
Mumbai what a week it is just rains and n more rains hard fast rains that is just like Mumbai, it
gives all as intensely as it can and then moves on, so very Mumbai love it, it takes no prisoner, if u are
caught in the shower u will be drenched to the deep inner skin.
It is so so very different
from the playful rains that I chanced on as I was in the rural part of India, looking
after my farmlands and spend time chasing kids as they played in the countryside,
or as I spied the tracks of the tractors as they tread the fields
Sporadic monsoons are here,
the rain god are around us but playing shy, This year has been a hard one and
have come to realize good crops does not mean better price for farmers, but
being able to hold on, store the grains and being able to sell the grains after
other have sold will fetch me a better price, Everything is a strategy.
What to plant in the field
and how it will turn out is also a strategy that one needs to evaluate and act same as in life, when and where and what ,,,
