Ranghubir Singh

Under the influence of Raghubir Singh

Introduction

“Taking pictures is like panning for gold. You do it again and again, and sometimes you find a nugget.”

How true are these words from the great Indian photographer, Raghubir Singh? Think about that quote in regards to street photography and the words ring even more true. Like a prospector looking for gold, we use our wits and our technical know-how to give ourselves the best chance to get a shot. But getting that shot is like finding the nugget. It’s like gambling. We work the elements to put the odds more in our favor, but it’s still a game of chance.
