“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams
Yes, there is a little story behind every single photograph. I get to know the person at a personal level through my lens, which is how I’m able to bring the best out of them.
Yes, having photography equipment plays a huge role in producing nice images; however, even the best equipment can not help create images that transfer feelings, for that you need passion.
Here are a few images from my latest project, Self Portraits.
I started this photo session with Dj Alex not knowing what the outcome will be. I had a few ideas in my head but wasn’t so sure if it would work. Picture above was the last shot of the day after doing so many experiments with lighting design and clothing.
The best thing about working with Alex is that he has a unique taste and style not only in music but also in life! I tried to keep that style in every single picture I took.
Here are a few more shots:
When it comes to portrait photography, I challenge myself to capture the feelings in the moment.
Yes, the lighting, camera settings, the foreground, and the poses are important, too. But what does an image mean to you with the best lighting and settings if it doesn’t radiate any feelings?!
A portrait is a feeling , and an image of the soul.
