Lattoo Baaz / by Bindaas

5th AUGUST 2012 

Owing to the short duration of the workshop, the concept sheets were very helpful for getting all the shots done. It was not necessary that the participant would shoot the picture for his or her own concept sheet. 

This image is taken by Rahul, because he was the only one there on Sunday morning and many Prakash and Radha had both drawn the facade of the mosque on their concept sheets.  

Sunny joined in that morning for a short time, we started the Lattoo Baaz  shoot immediately. 

Since lattoos are only around during the winter, we decided we would cut paste from the web, the actual toy. 

 We took many different angles, the lesson was to account for the lattoo which would later be photoshoped into the frame. 

And then gathered the others to walk over to the office, where we would download the images and start retouching with the amazing Dipti Desai

In the computer session, the kids played around with contrast and explored different fonts or what we called 'handwriting'. 

In the absence of Rahul during this session, who had left by then, there was a conflict over the line: World's the best lattoo baaz(top spinner) as a fallacy The children argued that Khirki village was a very small part of the world. Therefore, the line was changed to Purane Masjid Mein - In the Old Mosque instead. And thus Rahul had to renounce his imaginary lattoo world championship.
