Main pic : Amazing composition
Thanks, I especially liked the impressions the pots have left on the floor.
mindblowing collection - the lighting the exposure the composition - uff you are unbeatable
My fav - Walking on the wall and Enlightened :)
I am guessing these were shot on b/w film
They are digital, shot in raw, some curves adjustment, converted to BW with the channel mixer and an unsharpmask applied :)
wow cool - the reason why i told film is that i didnt find the exif for the images in the flickr page so thought u would have shot it in your bw film and got it scanned.
I am using UFRaw with GIMP for RAW conversion and PP, the EXIF details are getting lost with this workflow :(
I will be happy if you can write/share your work flow with UFRAW and GIMP.
-UFRaw can be used either as an independent application or as an plugin for GIMP, I use it as a plugin, just drag-drop the raw file into GIMP and it opens UFRaw
-Adjust the WB, usually the setting used in the camera when the photo was taken works
-Curves, to being out texture
-UFRaw applies these settings and opens the image in GIMP
-Resize, BW conversion if needed, using the channel mixer
-UnSharpMask, sometimes multiple times.
neat. thanks for the shortie hope I can get started with this!

:) I thought, sultanpet was close to RT nagar !!
Excellent Deepsan. Somehow the B/W effect is stunning, more telling than with colour..don't know why that should be so...
Thanks Deepa. BW sometimes lets you concentrate on the content and the texture and not be distracted by the color, maybe because we do not see in BW.
love these, especially the ones with hands working the clay - 5 and 8. would love to go see that. Having tried to throw pots like that makes it mean even more for me. Great photos, you have such a great eye.
Thanks, there are a few potters left in Bangalore, you can see them at work at Pottery town
, it is close to Ulsoor and Frazer town.
Lovely as always. There was an interesting article given in DH about the cemetery recently.
Exactly, the article(which is linked from this post) had us stopping at Sultanpet.
The boys portrait is really good.
the B & W photos gives the environment a real rustic feel :)
Well, it is the way pots have been thrown for ever :)
