Burning skies

I just arrived from my first trip to the South and coming from the Canadian winter (which was quite mild so far, no complains) and landing in a tropical weather, the first thing that strike me, was the sky and the light; it was completely different and new to me. Here I have a few samples from my attempts to capture the beauty of mornings and evenings.

Raj and Niru

It was about this time two years ago, that I was invited to the wedding of my best friend, Raj, and he also trusted me to take pictures during the ceremony.

As a photographer weddings always make me nervous, because the pressure to have great result is huge. There is no going back, it’s a unique event for the groom and maid and their whole family. Raj told me not to worry and to be as creative as I want, because there were two more photographers hired to document the event.

It was the first time I witnessed a Hindu wedding, so to make sure I’m familiar with the ceremony, beforehand I watched a couple of time the video recording of another Tamil wedding.

I decided to go for a more journalistic approach and to focus more on the small details, those that are usually the first to fade from the memory.

Here is a small sample of some of the pictures I took that day:
