Waari - A Journey of Emotions #3 by 

Theme : Portraits of Varkaris

Description : Another story of journey of a human being. For many Waari is not just a joy, it’s a journey of emotions. As it happens once in a year, peoples come to Pune & other locations traveling distant part of western & south west India. Most of them come every year & they need no invitation. Just a call from their beloved Vithoba and you’ll find them on their way to eternity…

I tried to use negative space in this series with the portraits of the Varkaris against the background of events happening during the Waari. This was my third capture. I stretched the zoom to it’s maximum to fill frame in a flash of time as the time was moving fast…

Equipment : Canon EOS 400D, Canon 75 – 300 mm prime lens @ 300 mm.

Av – F5.6, Tv – 1/200, ISO – 100. Hand held.

Location : Pune, India

Processing : Photomatix HDR generated work. Single RAW file was split to 13 TIFF images @ 0.25 stop & cooked in Photomatix 3.2, final tonemapped image was processed in PS.
