Colorful Rajasthan, India
A beautiful woman dancer from Rajasthan India, wears a traditional vividly colored dance costume as she stands in the desert. The wind is blowing her veil out behind her as she contemplates the desert landscape. Her costume is brightly colored silk of blue, yellow, pinks and greens. She wears bangles and ear rings complimenting her dress. Standing proud and bold, this Indian woman represents the exotic best of the state of Rajasthan, India.
Indian Culture and Color In Rajasthan
Indian culture and color of Rajasthan is captured in this portrait of a dancer photographed in the desert sand dunes near Bishnoi Nagar. Getting to the sand dunes required a four wheel drive jeep to catch up with the dancers travel with camels. Luckily we were able to get model releases from the dancers for this photo shoot enabling the images to be used for advertising and promotion as well as for editorial uses. After the shoot was completed we retired to our lodgings, luxurious tents at Reggie's camel camp in Osian. Reggie Singh, the proprietor, welcome us with moonshine form his Mountbatten bar, and perhaps the best meal we had in India. Some of us refreshed ourselves from the heat of the desert by diving in, clothing and all, to the pool before hitting the dining hall. During our evening meal, much to our surprise, the same dancers we had photographed in the desert sand dunes were our entertainment that evening. The evening concluded with, believe it or not, a project showing of an old Rod Stewart concert! Cool!
Adventure Travel In Rajasthan
Adventure travel in Rajasthan can take many forms and provide a fascinating glimpse into another culture and way of life. This beautiful woman with her happy and proud countenance epitomizes the type of photography I enjoy so much. To isolate her against the sky with all of the bold color and design of her outfit, her veil streaming out behind her in the desert breeze, is a real treat. As a stock photographer, getting a release makes it all the sweeter. This image can work in so many ways. It can be cropped as a vertical, square, or horizontal. It is a quick read so it can be used effectively on the Internet even at reduced thumbnail sizes. There is ample room above and to the sides for copy, headlines and mastheads. This can also be an image about fashion, in image about freedom, and an image about the power, strength and success of women.
