How to shoot when you have a basic gear?
Someone back then told me Camera doesn’t matter until and unless you are going for bigger prints, back then I was like seriously huh? Recently in a wedding, I was assisting one of my friend and a traditional photographer for a shoot and it was too hard to resist to not shoot in a wedding, so I decided to shoot a few candid shots for the Bride and Groom but here was the catch he was having a Nikon D 90 with a 24-120 f/4 lens and if you know the tech you will be like seriously Candid pictures with D90 and a Basic KIT lens? I knew what I exactly had to do, play with lights and shadows and never pull the iso more than 400 as it was a crop sensor Camera.The video guy had got two bright lights and I got the knack, kept my mind on hold started to frame things playing with the highlights and shadows and you see them in the pictures. Moral of the story: Yes Camera matters but what more matters is how you play with the shadows, highlights, and framing. Pictures Post processed on Adobe Lightroom CC. Camera Used : Nikon D 90/Nikkor 24-120 […]

The first day 6 hours after I reached the venue I just pulled out 2 16 GB cards in just 6 hours I just shot whatever I could but by evening I realized what am I actually doing? I ran through the images from the past hours and found only 7 images trust me 7 images which were worth uploading or printing. I sat down for a while calmed my senses pulled out the Camera and started to play like a pro this time. In this shoot, I realized that shadows and lights and so much of a thing in Photography. I created some mind-boggling images in this shoot and it is still one of my favorite shoots ever.   Camera used: Canon 6d with Canon 70-200 […]
