Sometimes I like to box myself in. Sounds strange, isn’t it? But I find that – lesser the resources, the more creative we get with what we have. What would you do if I said you could photograph only one tree and only from a balcony that I pick – which may not be the best angle to shoot it from? Which is exactly what I did to myself, the only thing I allowed myself was access to all my equipment and a whole day to shoot it under different light conditions. I cannot explain why I get the quirky ideas that I get, but I do know it trains me to think differently and to be a little bit more creative. It always forces me to think beyond the obvious. I am definitely not the genius who came up with such a premise, I learnt this during my desk job days during a team building exercise. So here I am extending this to photography.
The challenge led to some shots which lie in the realm of fine art photography. With the help of photoshop they translate into quirky arty pictures!
