LOVE STORY WHICH STARTED ON 5TH DECEMBER!

Iโ€™ve never really made any blog on weddings but today is the day when I write a small blog and share few images from the wedding of my friend who recently got married to love of his life.

I wasnโ€™t hired to shoot the wedding its just that as a photographer if you get to see the moment you canโ€™t really control and end up shooting. Thats what happened, most of the time I was not even carrying my camera and when I saw the moment I ended up taking the camera from the photographer Abhinash and shot these images.

I must tell you this was one of the first weddings Iโ€™ve attended in my friend circle and indeed was the adventures one which took place in some corner of Rishikesh where you have no network or wifi so its like youโ€™re totally disconnected from the world of social media for next few days. I love such wedding.

This love story started 3 years back on 5th December and this couple decided 1 month ago to get married on 5th December of 2018! Impromptu right ?? Okay! Now have a look at the images.

Groom is Anil Agarwal & Bride is Deepali Sharma Agarwal now
Anil is an amazing Film Maker youโ€™ll ever come across and deepali is a beautiful soul. I havenโ€™t really spoken to her much but sheโ€™s beautiful from her heart is all I know :)

Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art for Sony E-Mount

Iโ€™ve been using Sony Mirrorless cameras for last 3 years and initially when I purchased the E-Mount body we didnโ€™t really have any other options but buy the patent lenses from Sony but now the time has changed and finally sigma has announced lenses for Sony E-Mount camera. 

I happened to test Sigma Art 35mm f1.4
Firstly let me start with a Built Quality as it is same as Nikon & Canon Sigma Art Lenses. This is the first time Iโ€™ve ever used a sigma art lens and when I compare the sigma lens with any other third party brands, sigma is built very well. Has a nice body with auto on/off switch and lovey hood.

Autofocus:
I wasnโ€™t really expecting much since in the past all the brands have failed on auto focusing lens for Sony E-Mount. Not to forget there are few features like Eye auto focus which was not available while we were using third party lenses with the adaptors on. But this lens has completely surprised me with the Auto Focus in a decent distance.

This image was shot in a Natural light where I had just 2 mins to make few images.

I shot few images early in morning against the sun to see what it could do. I didnโ€™t want to edit these images so that you all could have a look at the output directly from the camera.

I also gave a shot to this lens in my commercial shoot for a jewellery brand where I was using 3 Light Setup.

How about the Bokeh?
Everyone knows about the bokeh you can achieve with this lens so instead I created few images where you could not just see the bokeh but also understand how this lens could perform even when the subject is moving and keep the image sharp & intact.

Overall View
When you start to compare this lens with any other lens Iโ€™m very excited that sigma is finally in the game. Itโ€™s pretty cool to have a fast aperture lens in such an amazing price range which is very affordable to those who needs a fast lens but doesnโ€™t want to invest a lot on the lenses. Colors are great, edges are sharp, less distortion, Little heaver than the Sony 35mm f1.4 but you shouldn't mind the weight when the lens is half the price. It is a great lens for all the portrait shooter & wedding photographers.

Thatโ€™s all for today. Thank you :)

Angel & Devil in you

We have both of it within us. Angel & devil! That is the pretty much idea for this shoot. 
Believe in what you think is right, listen to your heart but don't run behind glamour which might just mess you up. Take your decisions wisely cause that is going to set your future right. Shortcuts are not available ;)  


This concept was in mind for a really long time and when I spoke to my stylist Khusboo she was even more excited about the whole idea. We had to figure our outfits and arrange few things like how to build a crown, get the feathers, and yes wings! #Mumbai is a beautiful city where if you start to look what you want you can find anything you need, all you need do is start looking for it. Once we were ready with all the things we needed for the shoot we started to hunt for a model and we met Tasha who was more than happy to do what we had planned.

Europe is always a good idea

You must have heard that if you plan to visit Europe. You must have atleast 2 months to see around few great places but, hey! I had to finished that trip in 20 days and I managed to go around to all the awesome places - touch and run to the next one.

Paris - City of Fashion & of-course LOVE!

I spent some great time while I was traveling there, got my work inspired from the people, and the architecture. But must tell you all that one trip is not enough for the whole europe, you need to have good amount of time & lots of money to travel europe.

Do let me know how you like these images.
