Fabulous portrait! I can't stop staring at that man's face...It's not a static portrait, on the contrary, it's full of movement. Love it so much!

Behind The Lens

Location
Rajasthan, India.
Time
Chillum smoking happens to be very popular among aged men in Rajasthan, a special smoking pipe made with clay where its origin is routed to 18th century of India among wandering Hindu monks known as Sadhus ( Holy men ). It is usually filled with flavored tobacco known as zarda or with other smoking substances. The smoked pipe is passed to the other ( or next ) man, were he takes a leisurely puff. Captured this street portrait in the evenings of Rajasthan, where an elderly man exhaling smoke from Chillum after a deep puff.
Lighting
A portrait with natural light.
Equipment
Canon 5d mark ll and Canon Ef 70-200 mm f/2.8 ll usm
Inspiration
A pure ecstasy feeling of smoking Chillum reflected from his eyes and the drama created by the smoke exhaled.
Editing
Raw file processed with minimal editing to bring out the details
In my camera bag
Carrying a few lenses ranging from 16mm wide to a telephoto with 200mm range have helped to tackle up with the situations and high speed memory cards for faster performance and a few battery backups.
Feedback
Famous for its rich culture, vibrant festivals and rugged landscapes, the life in streets are framed with unique activities as well. One can explore wide range of photo genre.
