Hear about the latest Happenings at Artriva here on our BLOG !!

Working in a closed/confined areas presents challenges for team-based work such as photography shoots (closed spaces). Though these guidelines are meant for clients of Artriva Studios, the following information/guidelines may be suitable for similar working conditions. Some of the known work conditions and associated risk factors are as below.

  • Need/requirement to work as a team in confined spaces.
  • The need for handling multiple objects by the team members.
  • Regular sanitisation of workspace, furniture & equipment.
  • Logging of information for contact tracing.
  • Please take time to read instructions given for all professions (i.e. a Model also reads instructions for Photographer, MUA, organiser etc). The intention of this is being able to help one another in following these guidelines.
  • The studio space at this time of the year needs to have an Air Conditioner (external temperatures in excess of 33-36 degree celsius along with high levels of humidity)

Now use your Canon dSLR as a webcam

Written by

With the spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns across the globe virtual meetings and gatherings have become the new norm, resulting in a huge surge in demand for webcams and prices several times the MRP/MSRP. With the lockdown also brought much of our photography business to a standstill, the biggest pinch we felt was the lack of a webcam (i do remember having a decades-old, low-resolution webcam somewhere with the broken mount - hence the "somewhere bit")

We did manage a while with workarounds using 3rd party software and a screen-capture of onscreen live-view video from my cameras(DSLRs)

All this changed by this awesome announcement by Cannon

Why you should rent a studio

Written by

Organising and executing your own studio session is affordable !!

It is one of the best ways to take your photographic skills to the next level.

The primary advantage of shooting in a studio is the ability to control and shape the quality of light. Shooting under studio lighting also allows even low end / cropped sensor cameras to render sharp, well-detailed images. All of this control and quality means having access to a sufficiently large space and all the equipment that goes with it, usually a fairly hefty price to own & maintain. Thereby making renting a studio space is a great way to gain experience without the financial pain of buying your own equipment.

Chances are that you are a budding photographer, business owner or a marketer trying to get an idea what to expect in a photo studio for your upcoming shoot.  Typically a photographer would arrange this for you, but most often they offer you their own studio, even if sometimes their studio might not the right fit for the scope of the project.

Some planning and a well-equipped studio can greatly simplify your logistics and can mitigate most hiccups related to your project. As not all studios are created equal as the available ones vary from makeshift spaces to custom purpose-built spaces & everything in between. Some studios may also be better suited for a particular genre/style of photography than others hence the importance to select the right studio for your needs.

Photographs from our Photography Workshops

We are lucky to be situated among a few old trees that attract a lot of birds which provides a wonderful opportunity for some hands on practice after our workshops. Read on see some of the photographs shot during the practical sessions of our workshops

Photographing Children, Newborns & expectant moms are a lot different from other genres such as fashion, weddings or general candid photography. We create a warm & enjoyable environment and involve your loved ones in creating a giggle-filled experience to create our signature style portraits of the highest quality. We love capturing genuine intimate emotions of families as a whole.

Photographing children and families can be done in many ways such as relaxed and intimate, lifestyle, bright & colourful  involving lots of props, formal or casual studio poses with a soft, classic & gently posed poses. We recommend that you contact us much before your planned shoot date especially when booking for Maternity & Newborn Photography Sessions.

Her Highness, Rajmata Pramoda Devi Wadiyar flagged off the run at the iconic Balarama Jayarama Gateway of the Mysuru Palace. Three days, 145 kms, six sighted guides running with six blind runners onward to Bengaluru. This is a historic run and an inspiring for the running community where visually impaired athletes Mala Kolkar, Renuka Rajput, Sunitha N.D, Kavya N, Nandeesha Janardan and Ajay Eranna along with their guide runners Venkatesh N, Bhadresh S, Bhumika Patel, Nandish Kumar, Rajesh N V and Sachin Tiptur ran the 145 kms Spirit of Pinkathon run from Mysuru to Bengaluru, over 3 days from 23rd to 25th of January 2019. It is also a notable fact that most of the guides too were attempting their first Ultra Marathon

This run celebrates the spirit of health and well-being in the face of all obstacles. The idea was suggested by Head Coach of Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled Bhumika Patel after the VI runners made a record of becoming India’s first visually impaired athletes’ team to complete full marathon at a timed event.

I had the wonderful opportunity to cover the whole event (had earlier had the opportunity to
