ON THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC WEBSITE, COMMITSCION NATASHA REGO'S VIVID PHOTOGRAPHS



National Geographic — the magazine, the television channels, the website, the society — is, for many, the last word in photography, and, of course, much else concerning long-form journalism. So I was very pleased to discover on the NatGeo website this morning a picture made in Mumbai recently by Commits student Natasha Rego (Class of 2014). You can take a closer look by clicking on this link: "A Beach Backyard". Study the caption, too. As you will know if you are a fan of the NatGeo magazine, the captions written by the staff are works of art. In this case, the caption, which is in its own way very creative, was also provided by Natasha.

I absolutely love "Between Trains", too, for the composition, the creativity, and also the play of light and shade. What do you think?

Natasha Rego, you will go far... if you stay "focused". But you know that.
UPDATE (August 11, 2013): Natasha and some of the photographs she made when she was in Mumbai were the subject of a "Diary" item in Mumbai's Afternoon Despatch & Courier yesterday:


Read the item here: "Picture Perfect!" (go to Page 3).

Natasha worked as an intern with the Afternoon in April-May this year. Details: "10/10 for a newspaper story written by an intern from Commits".
