Make the Invisible Visible

Short of shooting roofs flying off buildings and trees ripped from the ground in a hurricane, how can you photograph wind? And why would you?As wind increases to hurricane force, the wise take shelter and let the guys in the working TV and press shoot the storm. (They presumably have health insurance provided by their employers) Images of the devastation after the wind has settled down are more dramatic and useful. (Storm images are used to advertise hurricane preparedness brochures, insurance flyers... continue reading

The Eyes Have It

Facial expressions and body language can either make or break a photo. Again and again we see images that would be successful if only there was emotion in the image instead of a subject with a bored look or a blank stare. How can you get your models more engaged with your camera to get more positive results?First of all stop falling in love with the dark and depressing look. Sure it’s dramatic and has it place but think about how images are used. With the exception of pitiful children and animals... continue reading

The Big Fat Indian wedding!!!

As they are rightly called, Indian weddings are a riot of fun and colours. It is a 4-5 days long event covering different rituals like Haldi, Mehendi, Sangeet, Puja and the final Wedding ceremony. With so many events it is a lot of fun as well as pressure for the photographer to not lose out on any important custom. The key trick, especially for a candid photographer is to capture the emotions right. Extra batteries are a must in these day long events.Below are some of my clicks of an Indian Hindu... continue reading

That night when my husband and friends took me to my first horse races was a magical night for me. Or I taught so…It was a dark, very cold and windy evening. None of this had stopped me from standing outside, my heavy camera in my hands, my eyes with tears from the cold in them, my heart almost exploding of emotions…... continue reading

It's About to Begin!

I'd like to greet everyone, especially those, who like football! The best European leagues are about to start. We were really missing it for the last almost 3 months. We lacked the emotions and tension, anticipation and postive stress. The super stars from all over the world are arriving to their home clubs in order to give a start to the 9 months marathone, called national championship. The best of the best are ready to carress our eye with their skills, make us admire their talents and keep exclaiming... continue reading
