Whose style of photography is Candid with a little twist !
What is your view on wedding photography?
Wedding photography is among the most difficult and challenging genre of photography. This is because when photographing a wedding especially when taking candid photographs, if we miss a single shot the shot can not be made again. It is also challenging to accommodate and familiarize yourself with all the rituals and functions of the various cultures that we have in India. For example a Christine wedding is completely different when compared to a Hindu wedding which is completely different when compared to a Muslim wedding.
What or who got you started in photography?
As a child I was fascinated by the idea of capturing moments and preserving them for a life time and this fascination gradually converted into a hobby, passion and work.
How would you describe your style?
I would say our style of photography is Candid with a little twist.
Among your works, which one is your favorite? Why?
We have enjoyed and loved all the assignments that we have take and it would be really difficult to pick just one. If I had to pick just one, I would not say it as a favorite but the one that was most challenging was a christen wedding that we covered. Being a Hindu, researching, understanding and then capturing the customs of a Christian wedding was most amazing and challenging.
Which photographers influenced you, and how did they influence your thinking, photographing, and career path?
More than being influenced by photographers we get our inspiration and influence by admiring and closely looking at the work of several of our peers.
What technology/software/camera gear do you use to keep focused on what you do best, as you photograph?
We use best in the business software and hardware. We capture moments using Nikon D810 with several specialty and general purpose lenses that include but are not limited to 70-200 f2.8, 85mm f1.8, 24-120 f4, 35mm f1.4 etc.
We do what we call ethical post processing this means that we do not alter the image in any way that involves us removing or adding objects to the image. We only perform color-correction, image sharpening, contrast corrections etc. these we perform using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop creative cloud.
What advice do you have for somebody who wants to pursue photography?
Our advice to any one who wants to pursue in photography will be "Do not give up". No assignment is too small to accept. To begin with and to create your portfolio perform shoots of your friends and family. Invest in good camera gear that compliments your style of photography.
If someone said ‘How can I be the next Navdeep?’ What would you say?
