Streets with film again

Recently got my hands on a roll of tri-x and immediately hit the streets with my trusted M6.  Was a bit of an adjustment after shooting digital for the last month or so but was a pleasure and felt so pure.  I am expecting a bunch of film in the near future.  Hope I get it soon so i don’t get rusty with shooting film.  The combo of digital and film (x100 and Leica) is really working out well for me.

  1. A fantastic set of images. The humour in many is wonderful. “Up in arms” is superbly observed and I love “Shirt has to stay ironed”. But my favourite is the ear cleaners. Excellent social documentation.

  2. a film is a film is a film.. I am beginning to appreciate (even more) why those who stick with films do so. The details are the overall texture and tones are lovely. You did not ask for favs but here they are – the ear cleaners, the guy on the handcart and the cigarette break.

  3. Hi Kaushal, I first came across your work on Steve Huff’s site and have been following you for the last few weeks. I have to say that there are some genuinely great images in this last set, film and the M6 really work well for you. You have a very well developed sense of timing and composition that shines through and the Tri-x tones complement your subjects really well. My personal favourites are Handcart, Man & Horse, Up in Arms and Retirement Age for a Car.

  4. Love the balloon boys and the man and the horse.

    You are definitely great at capturing these moments – playing with them, juxtaposing them, and just finding humor in the streets of Bombay.

    Excited to see what I got with your M6 today! 😉

  5. I found your blog through one of the forums reading about the x100. You have a fantastic eye for great images! Keep up the great work.

  6. Apart the lovely tones of Tri-X visible even through a low resolution jpeg, these are all great photos! Film (or perhaps rangefinder) shooting seems really to suit you so much, producing always remarkable results. I wonder whether you noticed if the number of keepers is significantly higher when you shoot film compared to digital. Anyway, bravo!
