Surfing @ Mahabalipuram, India

Surfing is an recreational sport for the bold and the adventurous. India with its 3000km odd coastline is a dream destination for most people who love water sports like rafting, scuba diving and sea surfing. Surfing basically involves riding your surf board on the crest of the wave. Attention must be paid to safety measures at all times. Surfers always wear a leash or tie a leg rope that is attached to the surf board. Proper clothing is required to keep allergies at abeyance and there are precautions to be followed while falling of the surf board to protecting the ears and head from injury. Photographing Surfers is a challenge since they are constantly moving at a good speed and lighting  needs to be perfect to get the best details out of the click. Here excellent use of  back lighting has enhanced the freeze beautifully.

About photosundari

My passion for photography has taken me on a exhilarating journey through realms hitherto unknown to me – be it wildlife, birds, portraits, architecture, landscapes, food , jewelery et al. The discovery has been tremendous – both in terms of exploring the outside world as well as realising my potential and challenging it to the full. Photography as an art has made me discover the beauty in every object however insignificant or inanimate. ‘Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder’….. Many a times we fail to appreciate the beauty around us and it has given me immense satisfaction for offering me a chance to learn and gain knowledge on various aspects of life & history.I believe and endeavor to research & study my subject – be it birds, insects or architecture – thoroughly before undertaking a photo shoot. I only then feel satisfied about doing justice to the concerned subject in bringing out the finer nuances and details. I personally prefer to look at unexplored perspectives that help discover the beauty of the object in its natural surroundings.I look forward to every opportunity to interact with other photo enthusiasts to constantly evolve and improve as a photographer.I am open to experimenting and look forward to greater learning processes through my fellow professionals.
