While travelling around the streets of Kumartuli with my friend and some photographers for s photo walk. I came across this lady. She was smiling.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was in Kumartuli , a place in Kolkata, India. This place is very famous for making of the idols of Gods and Goddesses for festivals. I saw this lady sitting in a corner. Her smile caught my attention. I am very fascinated by portraits.
Time
So far this is one of my most favourite photos I have ever taken. It was a hot summer day at around 2pm , 17 January 2020.
Lighting
It was all in natural light. The light falling on the clothes of the lady and the brick walls created a pretty dynamic atmosphere.
Equipment
This was shot on Nikon D850 , 24-120mm lens , F - 5.6 , SS - 1/200 , ISO - 250 No flash used
Inspiration
I was going for a photo walk with other fellow photographers and this lady caught my attention. Her smile was really beautiful. Even though she was poor she is still happy. She was really content with her life.
Editing
I only converted the photo into black and white and highlighted the subject a bit using adobe lightroom
In my camera bag
I only carry my Nikon D850 , 50mm and 24-120 mm lens
Feedback
"Always be patient while taking photos and look around your surroundings "
