Kids at Mahabalipuram beach


This is a shot from the previous photowalk at Mahabalipuram beach. Where a group of us photographers shot to capture some exciting beach surfing moments. Most of the others captured some awesome surfing action. While I was rather doing that which I love the most in photography, portraits and HDR.


While walking down towards the sea  there’s this narrow street through which we had to pass through. There were a lot of houses, shops and hotels to be seen on the way. That’s where I saw these kids. They were talking to some women there. They all must’ve been family, or just neighbours. I went up to the kids and asked for a picture. Very shyly, after a little persuasion from the women there, they agreed to pose. That’s when I got this.

Nalini, Durga and Janaki. I’m not sure of two names but I’m sure the little one in the middle is Durga. Order a Limited Edition Print of this image.



Nothing complex in this shot. The procesing done here is very simple and I did it all in Nik Silver Efex. I increased the structure to 100%, tweaked down the levels and curves graph a teeny little bit, and added vignette.

    1. Hahaaa, sí. A excepción de la del medio, los otros dos se cepillan los dientes. Tomé esta alrededor de las 7 am en la mañana.
