What just happened?
Phew.This past week has been a whirlwind. Seems like about a month ago I turned 25 but actually it was only last week! I am now 25 and 1 week old, people and I can positively say that I am LOVING it already.Apart from getting older, I also shot two weddings over the last 7 days. One was here in Bangalore and the other in Chennai. Both were so different from the other but equally special. These are clients who placed their trust in me early on when I was just starting out! So grateful. You have no idea how you have encouraged me. Looking forward to starting the editing process and sharing some previews over the next few days.Traveling to Chennai was fun! I shot Adi and Apoorva’s engagement ceremony last year so I very much felt at home with their families and friends because I had met most of them already! In the free time that I had on Monday, I spent some hours on my computer at this beautiful cafe called Chamiers. I also got to hang out with an old friend from my Hebron days who also happened to be in Chennai at the time! So proud to hear all the cool planet-changing stuff he’s creating and can’t wait to tell you all about it ;)Shooting the wedding it self was, as usual, an interesting experience. There was another set of photographers that I think were slightly flabbergasted at my being there. Navigating with the other photographers is always a challenge; they are not always willing to cooperate! It’s definitely a learning process and keeps me on my toes. Sometimes (only sometimes) their crazy lighting also helps in creating some interesting images like this one a friend took of me while shooting!
Notice how my flash goes off on the right corner? Now notice the other huge bright light on the left-corner? That’s the other guys’ light being triggered by my flash. Not desirable for me and I tried telling them to make sure it doesn’t happen. Sometimes they listen, sometimes they don’t. You just have to adjust maadi.
Love my job.
Also, LOVE this photo!
