It was a regular weekend morning in South Bombay (pre-wedding destination for most of the wedding photographers). We completed the first session at Gateway Of India and were heading to the Central Library, only to find out that it's being renovated.
We managed some good shots at the Horniman Circle and were feeling a little disappointed about the Central Library renovation. As truly said by someone, "Scarcity is a blessing in disguise". It wasn't about the number of pictures. It actually made us realize about the whole monotony we were trapped in. And that's more because the kind of the requests we get most of the times. But that was truly the breaking point.
We decided to improvise and do something unique, something more interesting . All this brain storming happening over a glass of sugarcane juice; where we halted for a quick break. While the gannawala was busy squeezing every ounce from the canes, we spotted that his setup was unique for an interesting frame. We asked the couple, if they were up some adventure. They agreed and this happened.
And as "Fortune favors the bold", right next to that was this typical roadside barber. A mirror dangling from the wall, a high rise wooden chair; a mid aged grey haired man, with his scissors. He looked busy doing chop chop and we spotted the perfect opportunity to create another 'out of the box' frame. Placed the couple in the frame, waited for some action, the kiss and BAM!
After this there was no stopping. We've managed to marry the Bombay streets; with to-be weds in one frame bringing out the real essence of street photography. Initially we were a little apprehensive thinking we may receive some resistance but it was only in the form form curious and surprised smiley faces.
We are super excited with the outcome and we've received very motivating response. Our experience has been amazing and very satisfying so far. Breaking the monotony and creating unique pictures is any photographers fantasy.
We intend to keep this trend of innovation alive and create more interesting frames for our future shoots.
