How the Photo was Taken

I took this photo with my Canon DSLR 600D camera, I used Adobe lightroom to enhance the contrast a bit and darkened the shadows on the edges…

Photo Location

I took this photo in July 24th 2016, When I travelled to the city of Hyderabad, I saw this Devotee getting his face painted as a part of enacting folklores during a Bonallu festival of Telangana State, with the belief to appease Goddess Mahakali. The festival is celebrated mainly in the month of Ashada Masam, in July/August. It is associated with devotees painting their bodies, dancing with tongues and eyes exposed out, undergoing body paintings etc. to signify a thanksgiving to Goddess Mahakali for fulfillment of vows.

About the Author

Robbie Ross

I am a passionate photographer who loves freezing the present and framing them to be cherished forever. Though I love nature and enjoy shooting landscapes, nature and wildlife, I like to shoot anything interesting be it any genre of photography. During my youthful days, I was always interested in photography. When I watched a movie, it was the photography that interested me the most. The depth in the pictures can be captured more with a camera lens than what is visible to the human eye.
