Chitra Aiyer Photography

I first met Chitra Aiyer a few years back on Flickr. Even then I knew she really took her photography seriously. She posted almost daily and I loved that her photography followed her life & she shot where she went, which meant that her pictures were never about the same thing. She also starting taking a serious interest in shooting people. Cut to now, Chitra takes on assignments to shoot weddings, family, children and even fun college get-togethers. And she shoots in natural light. I wish there were such things when I was in college, atleast I could bear to look at the pictures years down the line. I look forward to Chitra's Photography page updates on her new assignments. What I love is the freshness in her approach and that nothing or no one looks artificial or posed in her pictures.


Its clear how comfortable Chitra is with people, because these people who are not models, look happy and easy in these pictures.

I love these shots, the getting ready and the details.
I get a sense of the piognancy of the moment when I see these beautiful pictures.
The many emotions a bride goes through, to see more of this album click here.
I love this picture, its a brilliantly captured moment.
Chitra is a trained architecht and lives in Bangalore with her husband and kids. She also writes a popular blog about returning to India, Bangalore and her photography.

The first picture, striking. So much mood and so much community in it.

Life should be in black and white, even if living isn't!
