Incredible Indian Street Photography By Gurunathan Ramakrishnan
Peculiar observation and spontaneous reflexes is one of the basic necessity when it comes to street photography and these pictures are filled with the above concepts
“I am GuruNathan. Born and broughtup in small towns Gudiyattam and Sivakasi respectively. Did college and continued working in Chennai City. Design Architect by profession. Father of 2 lovely kids.
Once got my DSLR, I used to take all kind of photographs .This genre is more a refinement of my idea towards photography. To me, photography should be spontaneous, larger than life, an idea.
I look for a story, which normally makes sense only to me. : ) The story could be graphical, emotional, contextual or simply silly.
I guess, there are no definite rules. But whatever the content may be, if the presentation (framing /composition) is taken care of, it makes a Good photograph.
I guess Street photography is spontaneous; it is about admiring magical moments in every day – mundane activities. Nothing is planned. There is always a challenge. You get to open your mind and create something new at the same time. To get lucky shots is a bonus.
Apart from that, whenever i am stuck, my fellow photographers are always there to inspire.
I always want to explore any places with activities and light. But to pinpoint location, I wish I were to visit Paris, France (according to me, it is the birthplace of street photography). In India, it is Varanasi. In Chennai, it is Parrys Corner.
It will be difficult for me to advice, since I still am working in some areas. But to my knowledge, listen to your heart, it will make you unique. But always respect your subject.” - Gurunathan Ramakrishnan -
