Artists at work...
Waiting for a moment...
Captured 7 to 8 images as a warm up game... Just waiting with a lower POV for such a gaze...
At last I got him, how I wanted with such desired moody expression from him...
Here is it on your screen...
Photo captured in the workshop of famous sculpture artist Mr. Tapas Das... Here in my photo, the hero is his main assistant, while you can see the main artist at BG...

Great capture of the artist at work, sat amidst his rather cluttered workshop. I like the expression of grim determination. Perfect light management complemented by superb colours and clarity.

a fascinating shot and study this. Yes you captured the right expression and mood in this fine image. A wonderfully original and compelling piece of imagery. Well done!
Have a good week - Brian.

Result of your endeavour has been superb. It is really a decisive moment. While one artist is waiting with his camera for a perfect ‘eye’ or look of his subject, another artist in the background is busy with his brush – drawing the eye of his subject!
… And we stare at the whole presentation with admiration.
With best wishes,

Cluttered space, but all the better for it, as this is an authentic documentary photograph. You're right about waiting for the momentary expression: of annoyance, exasperation at your presence, or just tussling with a work problem? Good stuff.

This looks rather chaotic, but that is an impression I often get from seeing artists' studios. It's an interesting and very attractive photo with the master posing, or at least looking into the camera, while the assistant is working. From this low POV they look like being on a stage. The framing also makes me feel I am watching them through a window. The light inside the studio is excellently handled and the colours are nicely strong but not at all oversaturated.

I like the intensity in this shot of daily life.
Mine eyes are riveted to the eyes of the assistant, and how ever hard I try, the eyes don't want to leave him.
He is neither Ms Sushmita Sen, nor my wife, but an elderly gentleman, whose arm; left arm was busy in rearranging the clay for a better POV, and has been caught in motion blur, which is so nice to watch.
His inclined posture and your tilted shot towards left add life to this shot of intense gaze.
Did any of the TE members mentioned that his/or her neck was also titled towards left while watching this shot.
You made me smile this time.
Hats off buddy,

the way you framed your composition is superb, it's like you've surprised the artist through a window where you were standing unnoticed a moment ago. I like very much how his intense expression is placed at the centre of the frame inevitably magnetizing our attention. Everything else is expanding outwards and, after our glance has explored the details and the main artist for a little while, it irresistibly returns to meet his eyes again. Great spontaneous capture, with lovely natural colours and very nice atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Enjoy it I do! Another lovely look into the shop and artistry of a local going about his trade. I know I mentioned this before, but it's a delightful and interesting peek into a place so far removed from me. I feel that these images help better understand the big world that's out there...and this allows us to travel along by proxy.
Quite a stern expression you captured from this gentleman, he doesn't appear pleased...but it's sure made for a strong connection with your camera. :) Thanks for taking us inside for another local perspective that carries a lot of intrigue and detail. Have a great day ahead.

Good frame to show a earthenware workshop, clear to show they are hand-making statues and potteries, lively shot, interesting composition, distinct photo, good shoot.

La photo rend bien l'atmosphère de cet atelier d'artisans sculpteurs. Bonne gestion de la lumière.

A good daily life scene of the potter at work with his surroundings contributing to the overall authenticity of the mood. Good sharpness and realistic looking colour and well managed interior lighting. If flash has been used it's not obvious, which is good. Tfs!

Very nice capture of this artists workshop. Many interesting details. Nicely framed.
TFS and best regards

This is a nice picture...I like close to ground level POV. I might have liked the subject to be off-centre, possibly on the right. Light was difficult to handle, but well managed. Bhalo hoyechhe!
