Nepal - collection of photos

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

Nepal - collection of photos

I was impressed by this collection by disadvantaged girls in Nepal.

Some really great pictures there - not just "photos of record" or snaps, but really eye-catching compositions. Even more remarkable when you consider that some, if not all of them had never held a camera before.

Amazing. I'd like to see a full record of how the session was set up. Modern digtal cameras make it fairly easy to get reasonable technical quality, but these pics are good compositons and often show an eye for atmosphere which you wouldn't expect from a child who is trying everything for the first time.

Very interesting. No doubt, some of the girls have promise. I would suggest there has been some cropping of the original photos though.

An interesting set of photos though.

Yes, it occured to me after posting my comment that the pics were almost certainly cropped by a pro. For a start, showing only part of a tray full of bright colors is a sophisticated, advanced civilisation style of image. It doesn't occur in naive or ancient art.
