Some Mumbai street favourites

A few of these images were included in my essay on shooting on the streets of Mumbai which was posted on Eric Kim’s blog and can be found at http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2011/07/conquering-the-streets-of-mumbai-by-kaushal-parikh/#more-3501.

I have also run out of film so have been forced back to digital till I can get my hands on some tri-x.  However, this time around I am really enjoying shooting with my Lumix LX3 on the street.  I don’t shoot machine-gun style any more eg. yesterday I walked the streets for 3 hours and shot about 26 images…i guess it’s the film training and discipline wearing off on my digital style:-)

And I have to say the Lumix LX3 is a very impressive performer.  I could not believe the details it held even in the highlights of contrasty images.  Just need to perfect my processing skills to completely welcome digital back into my street arsenal.
