the 61-member group shot of TTL for BIF-5… how it was done….

TTL Group Photo - Processed

probably should’ve come up with this post several days back, but circumstances led me to wait a bit more than I would’ve liked…. anyway, there’s always a time for everything, and perhaps this is the time for this post…. “Bangladesh in Frames V” (BIF) came to an end last night (23rd April 2013) making us feel a bit empty…. this group photo that we’re talking about was on display outside Drik Gallery for five days during the exhibit…. those who are wondering why a group shot like this is so special to us, can visit our previous two posts on group shots of this nature…. the one for BIF-3 (2011) and the one for BIF-4 (2012) set a standard for “Through the Lens: Bangladesh” (TTL) and made our work harder…. this meant that every year we have to produce something ever more creative and ever…

I looking forward to shoot thunder for a long time. But, every time I come to know its thundering … whether I was sleeping or I’m out of touch of my camera. But this time I was lucky, I got it… though it was behind a high rise building…!! Still, I’m happy and I was thrilled to shoot that beauty…!!

Maverick, originally uploaded by Mahmud Fahmi.

I was in the garden in front of Karzon Hall, University of Dhaka. There were some beautiful flowers. When looked closely I found some flies, they might be bees (I’m not a Zoologist :P). They were beautiful. It was hard to focus them, because of the wind and also they were flying. I noticed two of them were targeting the same flower, but one at a time. Reminded me the movie ‘Top gun’ in a tiny version. It was interesting.

Story In Frames

Story In Frames, originally uploaded by MahmudFahmi.

Taken from the photography exhibition “Bangladesh in Frames 3”, held in Drik Gallery, Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Bangladesh from March 25 – March 29 2011. Organized by TTL. It was a good memory. A good number of visitors were there. I was trying to get them in slow shutter while they were visiting the photos.

One of my photos was there. Though that was taken by mobile from “Walk in the Past”. Feeling great to be a part of it.

একটি বাংলাদেশ

একটি বাংলাদেশ
তুমি জাগ্রত জনতার
সারা বিশ্বের বিস্ময়
তুমি আমার অহংকার..!!!

আমার দেশের পতাকা হাতে এর চেয়ে অনেক ভাল ভাল ছবি আছে।
ঐ ছবি গুলো দেখে আমিও চেয়েছিলাম, আমিও এমন করে তুলবো।
জানি না, কতটুকু পেরেছি, কিন্তু আমার উদ্দেশ্য মোটামুটি সফল।
