What photography teaches you..

and random facts πŸ˜€

What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” – Karl LagerfeldΒ 

Eye see you!!
Eye see you!!

Philosophy strikes again πŸ˜› so here goes.

1. Photography is a lot like life. There are a lot of compromises– Robert Lawson (our professor)Β 

[The clouds. the shadows. the weather. the moods πŸ™‚ so much drama]

2. Bond 007– Like seriously the minute you’ve lost your connection with what your going to capture. Its gone. Lost. Strong bonds always equals good pictures.Β 

3. Whats your story?

Β Every time our professor doesn’t understand the image submitted he asks “what were you trying to accomplish in the picture” (in a nice way though).Β 

  • Art of being able to convey the story through photography
  • Different interpretations
  • Let the subject speak to you. Patience.

4. Niche: Oh well I’m still working on it but I think I’d like to take Potrait images πŸ˜€ again goes back to the Bond. Where you find your network signal there you have your connection πŸ˜›

4. What you see need not necessarily be what you get πŸ˜› ( thanks to the ten thousand settings and Photoshop)

5. You fall on the ground and still look up to the ceiling – quote by my great friend Muhammed Aslam πŸ˜›

6. Your dirty –Β the insane lengths photographers could go to just to get that perfect shot. On the ground. Flying across fences and what not πŸ˜›

7. Makes people like me Gyaani, not knowing the first thing about photography but giving Bhashan (lectures) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

8. To be Hungry– To learn. To improve. The fight. The competition. There is always something out there that you still don’t know and still haven’t mastered.

9. Photographers adapt to change better (maybe cause they have to)- we know there are changes in the photo industry every single day. Something like the survival of the fittest.

10. ISO determines your mood πŸ˜› less patience equals high ISO. lets just get it over with πŸ˜› and the joy of falling in love with your camera over and over again ❀ and the anger when people tell you what to photograph.

PS. that is all my brain could come up with for now πŸ˜› I bet there is so much more to this.

Big smiles,

  1. I love your insights and thoughts. For me it’s embracing disappointment. You know how it happens, you take a picture, you think “this is the best picture I’ve ever taken”, you’re delighted. A few days later you go back and it’s really not that good. So you learn, you move one and some time later … “this is the best picture I’ve ever taken”.
