Every Photo has a Story

Let’s get into the story, that went into the making of an art form that flooded me with messages from the last few days.

When I first came across the magical couple of Aishwarya and Vamsi, a crazy little thought struck my mind. A thought of the couple floating in air, expressing the ultimate paradox of love.

As I had the couple ready, the later part of the process was to find the environment required. And the search stopped with the following background.

Now, as I had the background ready, the next part was to get the details that makes the art form it is. To achieve the illusion of floating, I made the bride sit on the edge of the wall in the following posture. The gown obeying gravity, helped me with the illusion.

The next step was to create the illusion of the hair. And the following capture helped us achieve it.

he bride was all set for the illusion and it’s time we make the groom ready. The groom as you can see in the final pic is floating head down. The legs make a major part of the illusion and I had to take the help of a few of my associates to help achieve this.

And as stated earlier, I never leave a detail, even if it’s as minor as a shoe.

Now for the final act, that defines the paradox of love in our artform. A kiss to the fore head.

It isn’t over yet, for I have to get the details of her waist as it was hiding beneath her hands in the above posture

Now as I have shared everything that went into the making of one of my most talked about works, I have a few more thoughts to share. The first of which is a famous quote forever close to my heart.

‘There are no rules for photographs. There are only good photographs.’

I believe a good photograph is a culmination of passion, vision, nature and science. Science here, doesn’t only refers to the equipment, but also to the many things beyond. Photoshop is one prime example. We live in no magical land. But we do think beyond the boundaries of reality. A thought that transcends into the magical work we create for the world to see. To achieve it, we need a magical tool to erase the line between fantasy and reality. A magical tool that showcases our thought into an art form, for the world to see. And I found that in Photoshop. And I will use it, just like I use my vision, the light and the many factors known and unknown, to realize my dream.

    You are crazy man.. its astonishing.. It snot the idea i am enlightened.. The effort you have put in to making the first picture… There are many ways of doing this but to make all those actions, physical elevations (little physics i mean gravity) etc the background selections made it look very nice and attractive.. To do this in Photoshop is easy, but to create those snaps to start with editing is very hard… I am a frequent visitor of most of the wedding photography websites… but this pic was still in mind for many day,, and i feel it should be there for years.. until it will be replaced by another pic.. (may be you can only replace with more nice ideas)….

    Keep it up and best wishes….

    Appreciate your effort, skills and best wishes for your team.
