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.

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.

When you hire us you are you are not just hiring us to "snap some pictures". We go the extra mile to understand the requirements and ideas or concepts you have in mind and do everything possible to make your dreams be represented in the pictures we create.

Just like your job interview where the first impression you give a recruiter matters the most, your profile picture on LinkedIn is what catches the eye of a prospective employer. Your professional profile photo is an integral part of your LinkedIn or any other Job site profile and, along with your employment history and credentials markets you as a strong prospective employee for employers.

Why does having a professional photo on LinkedIn matter so much?

  • Prospective Employers do judge you for your professionalism & commitment by your appearance.
  • It's a natural instinct and a subconscious connection is made when one sees your profile photograph (profiles without a picture do tend to get ignored).
  • It is an integral part of your professional history and a prospective employer would be imagining how his/her brand / organization will be represented.
  • It also keeps focus on what you have to offer professionally.

An Introduction to Studio Lighting

Written by

The word Photograph is derived from the greek words phosgraphê meaning light drawing. The best way to control light is providing your own.

Why not just use the SUN ?? apart from a short duration in the morning & evenings (on a clear day) the sun is just too bright and results in harsh shadows around objects and areas of a face. The only way to have 100% control over light is to head indoors into a studio where you can plan every ray of light to work the way you want.

A Studio (derived from the latin word studere, meaning to study) is a workroom. A Studio is  place where you can minimise the effect of sunlight and also have enough space to move around with your subject & equipment.
