Firstly kudos to Zaver Shroff for such an outstanding pose.
One popular method of using flash is using a bounce method where you would bounce the flash off the roof at an angle so that rather than direct harsh light, a reflected more scattered and even and balanced light would hit the subject. While this works well most of the time, it does tend to love shadows below the eyebrows, and eyes because of the direction of the light as it comes from above from an angle. One method to easily solve this is to choose a spot which has a wall behind and turn your flash in the opposite direction (180 degree) to the subject Read More
.. and she become one with fire, as she danced in half rhythmic and half chaotic moves, as her hands lashed out like the licks of the flame she held…
The cultural program in Rajasthan is worth watching especially if there is a fire dance Read More
Only A Glance
Our idea was to use the Haveli wall background to give a royal setup, and the outfit was selected accordingly. Rather than have a front profile we decided to get the shoulder glance to work as Priya walks away from the camera. Rather than being still in that pose she had to walk many times and turn and give a casual glance Read More
Adi stepping into the sea
The sea stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.
Walking down the steps of Bambolim Beach Resort, Goa, Adi shrieked at the first glimpse of the sea. His pace quicken as my sister frantically chased after him to calm down and go slow. Clothes flew off his body while he was still running a master trick which I can’t understand how he managed. Read More
Anuja Chauhan – balcony
One Saturday morning (few months back) Anuja and I decided to go to Bodega Café, located at the Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts at Altinho. I had been to this place a few times and love the huge old Portuguese house, the gallery which showcases some excellent work of art, and courtyard, the ambiance, and the daily changing menu. A very good place to sit and relax reading a book, or chat with few friends. Read More
“Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, clearly never owned a bike”
The beast of a machine stood there, looking all mean, showing off its biceps as sunlight reflected its chrome black and steel body. The roar of engine made one proud. As Tanya sat on the bike, the lady and machine become one. The combination lethal. Tanya a commercial pilot is used to mean machines! Read More
Facial expressions and body language are giveaway, I might lie by my words, but my expressions might not.
Clicking snaps of people is interactive and fun. Asking them to be natural in front of the camera is tough at time, and the best way to loosen up is to try an expressions series. It sets a right rapo between the photographer and the model/subject. Smile, laugh, cry, shock, bored, crazy are some of the moods you can use, the more the better. Few tips Read More
Priya Bhagra – mirror reflection
It’s late in the evening
She’s wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde? er.. black hair Read More
A prayer is a constant reminder that we are beggars.
The act of praying or meditating either for religious or spiritual reasons is something most of us have done at some point or the other. It’s an act where one is most true to their identity, most vulnerable and naked. We are our true image when we bow Read More
Time is too slow for those who wait.
Some of my favorite places in Goa are shut down for dull season during the rains.
- the relaxed setup at Morjim beach in the north with Rajasthani tents
- the peaceful, isolated location at Columb which has an almost private cove
