L&C: The photograph, “Thinking Kid,” which was selected as Photo of the Month, is a beautiful Candid Photograph with an artistic perspective, and very well presented. Overall, this is a great composition! Tell us more about your experience of taking this photograph.
Anup: On 23rd of January I along with some of my friends went to Buxa fort by trekking to get some shots of Netaji jayanti. After reaching there we took some shots. Then for taking our lunch we started our journey to uphill, and reached our favorite place Lepcheka.
Just after finishing our lunch we were preparing to get back, and then I got this beautiful little girl standing beside the wooden pillar. She was not giving any attention to our activities, and was busy in her own thought. There were many portraits that I took from this location earlier, but this is something different. You can see the innocence, tenderness and simplicity in her face that is completely genuine.
L&C: We see so many different genres of photography in your portfolio. Do you like a particular genre of photography?
Anup: I love to preserve moments of our daily life. I like portrait or people’s expression, and their activity. But my dream is to be a wildlife photographer in future.
L&C: Anup, have you ever exhibited your work? If so, then tell us about your first exhibiting experience.
Anup: No, till not now, but hope to do in near future.
L&C: Thank you, Anup, for sharing your feelings and experiences with us.
Anup: It is my pleasure, and it is a great opportunity for me to share my views and experience, I would like to thank Light and Composition for providing me such a platform where photographer like me can share their work to the whole world. Thanks once again the juries and whole Light Composition Team considering me for this honor.
