These photos were taken on a recent holiday to India.
10 July 2020
A few months ago, the family and I went on a holiday to India. It is an amazing place to visit as a photographer during the day and I was eager to see what I could capture at night.
It was a warm time of year with balmy evenings and a gentle breeze. There was a lot of pollution in the air which created a smoky effect around streetlights and backlit shop signs. I remember thinking that our driver must have been going crazy at the amount of times I asked him to stop in the middle of nowhere so I could take a picture.
Most imagery people see of India tend to be during the day or of famous sights. I wanted to try something different, and capture the hazy warmth of the real India. In addition, I post-processed my photos with a warm tone to aid this. I also dialed down the contrast and lifted the blacks to create a nostalgic and calm feel; a counter-weight against the chaotic nature of life in India.
I'm very proud to announce that this series has been featured in a photography publication called AntiVirus Gallery at https://antivirus.gallery/en/india/

Devon (UK) is always a great place for photography in the summer; these were taken on the southern coast, close to Exeter.
