Career Dilemma – Help needed

I have been trying for 2.5 years to get into a MBA abroad, but I have been unsuccessful. I even got through to the interview at one of the good schools but eventually got declined.

I have started feeling that my life wants me to take a different path. Or perhaps it is just not the time yet. I am confused. What should I do? What should I pursue?

Current Objective: I have been in an IT company for 33 months and I wish to pursue an MBA degree from one of the top 50 colleges.

Dependencies: I need a minimum of 3 years of work experience.

Options

  1. I switch my vertical after 3 months to marketing so that I get an understanding of the job role before hand.
  2. I switch my vertical to full-time photographer which will add to my diversity and change the pool from which the colleges will pick me from.
  3. Stay where I am and continue the mundane life (safe play).

I need help in deciding which path should I chose.

Monochrome Street #Photography Day214

After the early morning light painting, clicking candid at Nandi and only 2 hours of sleep, I headed out for the meetup on Prime-lens Monochromatic Photowalk which was organised by Frugal Photography.

I clicked with Samuel Carothers till 11pm and it was an amazing experience. I experienced something very different today onEarth.

Event details included :

Prime-lens monochromatic photowalk with a NatGeo photo-journalist(Samuel Carothers) this Sunday 3pm – 8pm
Technical Knowhow about the cameras in the first hour.
* Why Shoot Black and White?
* How to See in Black and White.
* Visual Design. ( form & content & composition)
* Elements of Form In Photography
* The Medium Of Photography
* Characteristics of Color
* Colours in Black and White
* Tones and filters
* Contrast
* Keys ( High-key ~ Low-key)
* Expressions and Elements in Black and White..

I personally learnt how to click black and white as I had never done so before. Second thing I learnt is how to approach a stranger and take his pics. So it goes like this : take a few pic of his without him/her knowing and then walk up to them – show them their pic – and appreciate the picture – then politely ask if its okay and whether they would pose for the camera.

I know now that the streets include many thing, starting from portrait and candid all the way to abstract and architecture. The perfect blend of all is Street.

Monochromatic photography taught me that its important to reflect on an image’s emotions without the colors. That is when I can actually bring out a story in them. And the story is how the viewer connect with the photograph.

Monkeys at Nandi #Photography Day213

There are monkeys and there are dogs, and they are in plenty at Nandi Hills. After the previous night’s light painting sessions and the candids, I devoted my time to these magnificent creatures who are busy with themselves.

The mom-kid relationship is special and being the mother’s day I could not not specially mention the photo which reflects the same.

 

One Love is a part of the mother Earth and let’s try to preserve as much as we can for the future to see it that way. Today Was a Good Day but its not yet finished. Later I held a meetup regarding Street Photography in Monochrome.

Street #Photography at Nandi Day212

Next up, after Light Painting, we reached the Nandi Hills at 6:10am, but it took us 1 hour to get the tickets due to the improper queue, and hence we missed the beautiful sunrise. I was sad for my friends because it was their first time to Nandi and missed the best part.

I did capture many images while they were toiling up the hill trekking to see the sunrise point. I also clicked random people who seemed interesting to me.

Light Painting #Photography Day211

Me and 4 other friends left at 2:30am for Nandi Hills, 70kms from Bangalore. On the way we created many light painting photographs via the streaks of the cars passing by, by external flash and using the “Color Light” android app.

Thanks to all my friends who helped me and has enough patience to keep posing for it repeatedly. The work which you is the hard work done during the timespan of 4 hours. And the day did not finish there. We continued clicking street and candid types after the sunrise.
