Perfecting Indian Classical Dance captured by a way of visualisations and light play | Photo Series by Yogendra Singh

Yogendra Singh who was once a commerce student has now turned into a passionate photographer and a fine art student of ‘College of Art’. He has been involved in the field of photography for the last 2 years and feels highly elated and exhilarated to be the part of the photography community.

 

When taking pictures of dancers, Yogendra wishes to show the beauty and the purity through which the dancers dance on stage. He wanted to show the struggle they take up to perfect their steps. He says, “the efforts they put in every performance, it is quite difficult to see what they are saying, they are saying without words. It’s only our eyes and our mind that tries to understand but ultimately fails. We try to interpret those actions, but we miss them in the blink of an eye.”

 

According to him the process of creating a photograph is different for every photographer. In this case, he first observes the lighting condition of his surroundings where he has to click pictures. He notices which light is coming from where and if it is reflecting on the stage and so on. After that, he tries to visualise what type of shots he wants and if he can get the required lighting conditions. He then proceeds to choose a lens which would help him get the desired shots. In this series, he has used Canon 700d and Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. He felt that this lens would be a great choice for this kind of lighting.

Singh says that it took him around a week to completely create this series including the post-processing.

 

He has many sources of inspiration but here he names the one that has mattered the most to him. His father who has always supported him and advised him to follow his passion instead of living a life of 9-5 way of livelihood.
