Dancing in the Dark.
Shot this yesterday night on definitely the foggiest night I've seen in my life. (yes, more than 18th Jan). This photo comes at a time when I've been questioning my own abilities as a photographer. I was spiraling on what other photographers are doing, how much they've achieved, the recognition they've gotten and how I'm nowhere close to any of them. I even wondered if my art will ever be that big.
Last night when I saw light shining through the fog, it was all sorts of beautiful. The night was getting really cold, but I decided to push myself to go back to my room and pick up my camera.
I was trying to compose different frames when a random shot inspired me to think of this frame (an example of how you can be your own inspiration). Since there was barely 25mts visibility, hardly anybody was outdoors. I waited for 25 mins patiently for someone to walk past. No one I knew showed up. During this time, I bettered my earlier idea of just a silhouette to a dancing silhouette. As I was pondering on calling @san_nagarajan
and asking her to dress up in her dance costume in the cold, she showed up in front of me. Out of the grey. Literally.
And I realized I didn't need her to wear a costume. She was graceful and perfect, nonetheless.
This shot will remain a favourite for a long long time because of one simple reason — it reminded me how much I love creating images. The joy of creating this image will always be more than any amount of recognition this photo will ever get.
Grateful, as always. ❤️ __________________________________________________
