If you enjoy candid photography there is no better country to visit, perhaps, than India. I have never been anywhere else where people are so comfortable to be photographed and that is its one downside, as they can be too eager to pose as soon as they see your camera. However, a posed photo can be as effective as a candid shot if you are photographing people within the setting of their workplace.
Everything is so colourful there that it seems perverse to turn your photos into black and white. But once I started to experiment for Cee’s People at Work CBWC theme, I discovered that these very different versions could be equally effective. I hope you enjoy them!
