Nighttime photography opens up a whole new range of possibilities. Most nighttime photographs are simply impossible to recreate in the day, no matter how technologically advanced the equipment used is. Not only does nighttime photography require different equipment and camera settings, but it also produces photographs with a different “feel”.

This photograph was taken on Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. During this festival families are supposed to decorate their homes with lights, candles, diyas (small earthen pots that are filled with oil and lit) and rangolis (colourful patterns made on the floor using petals, colours, etc). My family and I decided to put small, simple lights on the plants on the balcony, as diyas and candles would be difficult to sustain in the wind. The beautiful effect created by the lights had not been anticipated by any of us.
