Your photo reminds me that children are pure in emotion and that happiness and playfulness are universal. Thanks for sharing this image.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at a Madrasa (school for Islamic instruction) at Chowk, Lucknow. I was on a morning shoot with my 7-8 photographer friends, when after shooting the sunrise we decided to do street photography. To shoot street we went to the old part of the city; Chowk which is known for its rich Nawabi heritage and architecture. After exploring the area, one of my friends suggested to check out this Madrasa which was somewhere deep in the area and the only way was through some broken narrow lanes.
Time
I took this photo in the morning, around 8 am. The Madrasa had just opened and the classes were just about to begin.
Lighting
I took this shot in the natural morning light.
Equipment
I had used my phone, Samsung Galaxy Grand GT-I9082
Inspiration
At the Madrasa I saw these four young boys, who were standing sheepishly. To make them feel comfortable I asked them, `Who is the most mischievous?' In response, they pointed at the youngest kid and everybody started laughing. I guess my love for kids inspired me to take this photo. I love to be around them, play with them and a smile on their face means a whole world to me.
Editing
I was very happy with the frame and the moment captured in the shot and so have done very little editing. I have used Adobe Lightroom to edit. I have increased saturation and exposure and decreased warmth a few points. I have also slightly increased the exposure on the face of the “most mischievous boy” by editing it locally using a radial filter in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I think the best camera is the one you carry all the time; for me it’s my phone. I believe that heavy photography equipment does not guarantee good photos, but it's your ability that does. I am a lawyer by profession and don’t usually carry a big camera with me everyday. I believe in capturing whenever I feel or see something worth, even if, all I have is my phone.
Feedback
This shot is right between a posed and a candid shot. To get a similar shot, make your subject comfortable by talking to them. Then, when they start reacting more naturally to the situation start clicking a series of shots. By this you will get some spontaneous photos capturing the moment that you wouldn’t have got by a single click. The idea is to create and capture a natural emotion.
