Inspired by the great masters Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, I have taken this picture "Home Coming" on black and white film and developed the exposed film carefully to get high-quality negatives ( color slides ). I scanned them to high resolution to get quality digital files and fine tuned them for printing on superior grade archival papers using equally superior grade archival inks.
This scene of a typical tropical landscape of India was taken at Warangal, while the callte were returning home at dusk. The strong side light, coming from a small gap at the road side bushes, was giving a three dimensional character and a sense of depth focussing on the movement of the cattle in the picture.
In my pictures I always imbibe the elements of composition, balance, rhythm, dynamism and coherence which elevate an otherwise ordinary subject into a piece of art full of aesthetics, which fascinates one to see the photo-paintings again and again and experience the ethereal beauty. My work is born of refined aesthetics which I have been practicing right from 1978 and is a fine blend of art and technology based on perception, assimilation and understanding.
