Is this for Katthakali dance?
Lovely composition.. :-)
It’s the making-up of expressions not make-up!
I think they use this make-up to enhance the facial expression..am I right?
Great shot! :-)
Wonderful portrait, Joshi.
you’re so good at portraits !:) well done :)

Great shot !
The concentration on the man’s face whilst applying these intricate lines and colours is wonderfully ‘shot’ by you.
Nice lighting and composition
Another beautiful shot, Joshi. So bright and illuminating, you really captured the hard work that goes on even before the performance starts :)

Hi Joshi. Hadn’t visited in a while. An apology. You do have an amazing talent at capturing expressions and the oh-so varied colours of India. If I may be so bold: can you make a living out of it? (Don’t let me be misunderstood: in this age of Internet and free everything, how can you market your – reat – talent?
Great. Not reat. Sorry for the typo! :)
wonderful colors and light!
Love your work! Would you be willing to share your story with us?

What a great capture!

wats ur gear??
Joshi, this one is beautiful! I absolutely love Indian dance, I have attended a few Indian dance & music festivals in Liverpool, London, Berkeley and San Francisco. I wish they had more performances here in the San Francisco Bay area, but there are so many more Indian communities in England that that it was a much culturally richer place to be. Anyhow, thank you for following my blog ‘More Talents than time”. It is going to be just a personal collection of everything I am good at. You know, for those days when it is too easy to forget one’s value and skills.
Very interesting face.
WOW! Stunning work Josh!
