India: Mixing it Up

I went to India with two objectives – to communicate with people and hopefully get some strong, emotional portraits, and to try something I don’t usually do. I also wanted something that would contrast with the super clean digital files I can get with the 5D Mark II. So along with a borrowed Rollei and Nikon F2, I took along my Holga to add some variety and to see if I could come up with something a little different to the usual photographs I try to capture.

I’m still not sure where I’m going with my photography but am now beginning to accept this as part of the process. Only a few weeks ago I would have been forcing myself to decide on a style that I thought was ‘me’ but I now realize how futile that way of thinking is and to just accept that I like to change directions every five minutes or so. I know switching cameras every five minutes might not be the best way to proceed but it certainly mixed things up a bit and got me thinking. Here are a few shots.
