The Very First Time
Rahul Jhanghiani,is one of the topmost and prime Photographer’s of India,and now a very dear friend. He has shot a number of notable faces of Bollywood and is exquisite with his work. When I decided to shoot my portfolio,I was sure,it had to be his camera but I wasn’t sure if I was worthy of doing justice to it.
There were several things that were running in my head before the shoot.
One major being ” Am I going to look chubby on camera?” Oh common! I had to face it then,the dieting started…
“Will it go well?” “How will the pictures turn out to be?” …..
The day arrived,I went for the very first shot. I was extremely tensed and it was clearly visible on my face (that had to change). The lights were turned on,loud music started to play,the mood was was made. I stood infront of the camera,it took me around 30 seconds to adjust myself. He said “Relax! Go for it!” 5 mins from then,Legit 5 mins and he’d got his shots
I was done with my first look
It was then I realised,that probably this was my forté and I should go ahead with this.
Enjoy it! Express it! Feel it!
Believe in myself for this..
The other looks went really quick and soon I was done with the shoot
After I got hold of the pictures,I was overwhelmed with the magic it displayed
Sometimes,things you are not sure of,turn out to be the best for you.
It was that day I professionally faced the camera the very first time and today,I thoroughly enjoy it..and I’m following my passion along with studying medicine. I don’t know where this is going to take me,but atleast I’m sure,that I’m doing something which gives me my adrenaline rush each day.
Signature Tip: Believe in yourself,to make others believe in you.
