Wasting my time.


It is very easy for me to waste my time. Sometimes a colorful insect is reason, good enough to spend spend 3-3 and half hours. Look what we did with it. All images are raw, not at all edited with photoshop/picasa etc. Light effects are because of the way they were taken. Sheer talent !! :P. Camera details and settings for each photo can be seen in picasa. During this, I was accompanied by a budding photographer and my shishya, Anuraag (Also former owner of camera ... yes he sold it out to someone, I have permitted him to move to DSLR.) :)




































PS: Anuraag is very shy in projecting his talent. I guess he wrote a comment and then deleted it.
Visit his Orkut album, for some classic photography:
