In the two pictures, each frame had four layers of composition. There was a shooting break of three days. Between the top layer and the second layer, the second photo also had four layers of composition. It took a shoot gap of 12 days. In the first photo, Govind layer was shot with real sunlight. (kirshnaveni shot was another layer of created sunlight )The source of light and density, colour temperature, and shadow exposure, made it a complicated shot. For Naidu and Krishnaveni, same shot begins with Govind running towards the police jeep. It is was another layer of composition shot where (Govind runs on the road) Krishnaveni and Naidu sat inside the car and all the shots had a shoot interval of 15 days. But working with such complicated shots was an opportunity for the best way to learn.#dasavatharam #art # photooftheday #magic #v
