Had this opportunity to visit a fair which had a great rural flavour to it.
The photos posted here are qualitically not flawless, but it is the ambience that I am trying to share..... the ethnicity... how colourful India is and the feel of seeing the rural craftsmen at work with their rustic instruments....

Hope you can excuse me the occupying of server space and enjoy a hint of rural India.

1- Artifacts strewn with stalls visible in the background.
Image

2- Women making lamp shades from bamboo. Engraved bamboo poles support the shades made of strips of bamboo bark - seen behind/beside her.
Image

3- A saree - women's wear- being woven on a hand loom. The spinning wheel on the foregraound is used for spinning thread out of cotton.
Image

4- Folk artists - dancers- taking a break
a)
Image

b)

c)
the child feels...oooohh for a lick of icecream
Image

5- Refreshed and dancing
Image

Image

Image

Will post a few more

I was born here but after some forty years still never could cease to be fascinated by what India has in colours and ethnicity. Strange country to churn satellites and microchips and still very rustic in many aspects!
I hope some of you have visited India and experienced all these.

1- Dolls made of wood and the background has bags.

2- Singing
Image

3- Dancing too

Image

4- Puppet show

5- Wood carved statues and masks

6- Young artisan at work

7- Some colourful lamp shades
Image


8- Dry flowers
Image


9- Curious buyers
Image


the product

10- The see-saw flour mill... it is worked by legs - needs lot of stamina.
The lady on the left foreground is filtering the flour witha sieve and the winnowing fan to remove husk from paddy grains is seen on the right beside the clay pounding area
Image


and a few stalls

Image

hand made wrought iron wall decors

some similarity between seller and product right behind, is it?

I think you did capture the ambience of the place, extremely interesting colourful shots displaying old art. Not sure why you used manual exposure, I think aperture priority would have been better with an increase of ISO when needed.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Thanks for the comment 4xxxx.

Noticed that when on manual mode, the camera allows flexibility of 3 f stops for a given shutter speed while exposure meter displays correct metering for all the 3 speeds (no under/over exposure).
But on AV/AP, the shutter speed will be determined by camera based on the aperture dialed in and if compensation is used, the exposure metering will show either under or over exposure.
I was trying to figure out how the 3 apertures effect the photos under very different lightings and in the rapidly fading sunlight with any specific shutter speed.

Regards,
