|Doesn't my subject look like a National Geographic photographer?|
Beach photography is generally very rewarding unless the sun is overhead. Folks over the beach usually create a world of their own where roaring waves, moist sea breeze and elusive mast of faraway vessels synergize unconditionally; yes, pretty dramatic! Thus, if you are a photographer or a photography enthusiast you can capture countless candid shots while loitering on the beach. The lady holding a camera in these photographs was a co-traveler whom I had met in Goa. Pardon me for being careless with my words, she was not just holding that DSLR to give me a pose. The passionate young lady was keen on capturing a puppy ignoring the scorching sun above her while I was resting under the cool shade of a fishing boat some fifty meters away. Obviously she had no clue of my covert shooting. The telephoto end of my camera lens could capture her but not her cute little subject which was hiding behind a tent. Recently we caught up via twitter and I was relieved to send her these photographs. Good thing is, she was happy! So, bottom line message is don't simply take those patches of sunburn in the name of sunbathing, rather travel around with your camera and oblige yourself with few cool clicks which will enrich your creative self, if you know what I mean. Happy clicking guys!
