Lord of the Rings

Lord of the Rings

I picked up this photography book called “Complete Guide to Photography” by John Hedgecoe a short while ago. Was just browsing through, and trying to play around with my camera settings and learn a trick or two. Then India won the match, and I lost focus. Fell onto my bed, and I suddenly found myself staring at this. Thought it would be nice to capture it, and here you are.

Would have liked the dark areas to be darker still to show off the light better, but I don’t like playing around with photo editing software. Too lazy rather. And despite multiple attempts, I couldn’t figure out how to increase the contrast using just the camera settings. Still, I like it. Wonder when I will open that book again, though! 🙂

As an aside, it’s kind of dangerous to have a book shop right below where you stay. I need to repeat some mantram or something to stay away from that place. 🙂
