Your experience Photography field.
Well I have started (with Sony DSC-hx100v) photography since 2011, so it would be two and half years of experience. I have done workshops on food, sports, fashion and light photography in my college.
My Photos were selected in an exhibition (Theme: A Beautiful World) organized by The Photographic Angle, London exhibited in 2012.
Is Photography your family Profession / Hobby?
Nope, I am the first person with this hobby.
Which type of Photography you like the most?
I like food photography the most.
What I like to capture are cakes, ice-creams (with syrups especially), continental food, etc. Basically all the types of food.
Your unforgettable Photography experience or any special story.
This unexpected experience happened in December, 2013 while I was on trip to Dunny Islands, Dwarka. There was a flock of Kentish Plovers on the beach in the morning; I had to crawl slowly and steadily for 50m (for 1 hour) without catching their attention and to my utter surprise I was able to go to distance just 6ft away from the Plovers. I was able to capture a variety of photographs in different poses which was worth 1 hour or crawling.
Your own words about yourself & your passion.
I am passionate about food photography, and source of inspiration of food photography are the:
- TLC channel and
- Photo graphs of David Munns.
I have been a foodie since my childhood, moreover the shows on the TLC channel have had been a great source of inspiration and motivated me to pursue this interest.
Tips and suggestions for our members related to your subject.
When taking food photographs, macro mode always helps.
Food (defocused) in the background enhances the ambience of subject in the photo.
Cherries of chocolate syrup (or any shiny item) should be preferable point of focus.
What are your other interests?
Despite my inclination towards food photography, I like to explore themes like:
- Landscape and Streetscapes
