Moods of Lord Ganesh & the making of idols #6 by 

Theme : Capture the making of Ganesh idols for the Ganesh Utsav ( Festival ) celebrated in India 7 across the world with HDR experience

Description : This God of knowledge and the remover of obstacles is also the older son of Lord Shiva. Lord Ganesha is also called Vinayak ( knowledgeable ) or Vighneshwer (God to remove obstacles). He is worshiped, or at least remembered, in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings and auspiciousness.

Ganesh utsav ( festival ) is celebrated in India in the month of Bhadrapada ( somewhere between mid August to September ) every year. Festival lasts for 10 days ending on Anant Chaturdashi (fourteenth day of the waxing moon period).

Celebration, rituals and tradition : Making of idols begins from May, for those who make good business it’s li’l more earlier. I had been watching a craftsman’s shop nearby my home for last 3 years and every time I used to think this year I’ll get there. Idols taking shapes, passing through painting and aesthetic processes was every years view. This year finally I made my mind to get there & find some time. Mostly all of them in RAW form & waiting for next step. It was a real opportunity as only option was to have some play of light.

Equipment : Canon EOS 400D, Canon EF – S 18 – 55 mm lens @ 33 mm

Av – F7.1, Tv – 1/20, ISO – 100. Hand held.

Location : Pune, India

Processing : HDR image from single RAW file. Original RAW image was converted to 13 TIFF ( 16 bit ) images with +/- 0.3 stops to work in Photomatix 3.2. Final tonemapped image was processed in PS.
