Lady from the street!
Category: People 'n Portraits

When I saw this lady sitting in the footpath with a kid near Ulsoor, Bangalore, I could not ignore her vaccant expression. She looked very tired and the kid was asleep in her lap. I stopped my bike a litle ahead of them and quietly took a few shots. She did notice me after a while and I paid her some money before leaving. Hopefully, that is some compensation for the model work she did for me, though unknowingly.

To maintain the distance and take the pic without her noticing it, I used the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L telephoto lens. The light was a little low for this lens and I ended up using ISO-800, with f/6.3, 1/400s for a manual mode exposure. The pic was grainy and dark, but I had the RAW format and was able to get this JPEG out of it, using Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.
