COINAPHOTO: This photo above is stunning – tell us a little bit about the journey behind the lens. Where were you when you took it?
PRANAB: During my travels in a remote village in West Bengal, India. I saw the pottery and loved it. During busy hours, the girl was helping her father, then her friends made a fun gesture with their hand shadows. The girl was enjoying the work and show from her friends with a beautiful smile.
COINAPHOTO: What techniques did you use to capture the photograph?
PRANAB: I used aperture priority mode in Nikon D3000 DSLR with 18-105mm Vr lens. (F/11,1/13 sec.,ISO-800)
COINAPHOTO: There is so much passion in your photos. Tell us, how did you first get into photography?
PRANAB: I first started my journey through lens in 2009 as a self taught amateur photographer. But I loved taking photos as a child. As an adult, I started to reignite this passion by using my camera to capture moments of human interest.
COINAPHOTO: Are there any other photographers you admire or look to for inspiration?
PRANAB: There are so many photographers that I admire. Some of my favorites are Abhijit Dey, Sujon Sarkar, Nimai Chandra Ghosh all from India and Henry Ho from China.
