    The overjoyed me..

    Posted on by Amrit Ammu in Journey - Life on the go | No Comments

    Share: Last week my inbox made me jump in joy and bought that rare over-sized smile, right across my face ! 😀 *Winks* I hope it’s not sounding exaggerated but that’s how I actually felt when I read a mail from the ‘Daily Post’ newspaper. After a few conversations with their representative, all I knew was this, that I was going to be interviewed the next day for being one of the few woman photographers of the city Ludhiana- My hometown. Okayyyyyyy…I thought.. ohhhhh kayyyyyyy ! Okkkkkkkkay (Sorry for those sound effects, but that’s almost how I was reacting sitting in my room and trying to sink in that feeling, while trying to gather myself up normal before I could go and tell this news to my parents without yelling out much in over joyousness). I had a clue that my mom and dad will react only as required on hearing …

    Share: (The photographs in this post are © Amrit Ammu Photography) I have shared my learning from this visit in terms of photography, at the end of this post. Have a look and let me know about your suggestion too ! I was talking about the photographs of beads, pottery and women accessories in the last post, which I am sharing up here. Just like before, these photos also depict a bright color splash on different mediums altogether. Taking up the beads section first, here we go for a vibrant ride below.. 🙂 This is how beautiful the loose beads looked, spread across on a large table. They were used to make customized bracelets or key-ring or neck piece or whatever-you-may-want out of them This is the thread with which the beads were stringed together in the form, the customer would prefer 🙂 Customization on the roll !

    Posted on by Amrit Ammu in Story through my lens | 10 Comments

    Share: (The photographs in this post are © Amrit Ammu Photography)  This post is dated April 10th, 2013. Last evening in the city of Nawabs, Hyderabad, when I was travelling from Banjara Hills to Mehdipatnam, I noticed a lot of shops being beautifully decorated with flowers, lights and colors. The huge posters outside these shops were also speaking of some special discounts for their customers. I was trying to recollect if some occasion was around.. And soon I saw some boards that answered my thoughts.. It was Ugadi the day after ! On reaching my college hostel, I started searching about the festival and came to know that Ugadi which means “The beginning of a new age” marks the New Year’s Day for the people of the Deccan region of India, according to the Indian Calendar. Basically the New Year’s Day is celebrated throughout India, However it is named differently in different states. This festival …
