Zenfolio | Spode | Udayagiri


February 25, 2017  •  1 Comment

I have now been visiting India every month on account of work and have begun a sporadic but deliberate rediscovery of India. At least those parts that I have visited before and that I would now, with the aid of digital image technology, like to capture for my own pleasure. Imagine my surprise, therefore, when I had an opportunity to spend about an hour exploring the ancient monastic caves of Udayagiri in the city of Bhubhaneshwar. Not only were there great photo opportunities, but a chance to observe how Indians confront and engage with their heritage.

I had only my iPhone 7Plus and my Moment Wide lens and I tried to make the most of the late afternoon sun. While I missed my Fuji X70, especially when I wanted to capture the dynamic range of the scene before me, the iPhone held up quite well.

Hello. Great photos!

Using a lower performance camera can yield interesting results you wouldn't get otherwise.

I find technically perfect photos sometimes to be a bit boring.
