My New-est Passion

People’s perception of a photograph is usually how good they look. The basic idea of a photograph uploaded on the social networking sites is to wear appropriate clothes (which don’t make them look over-sized), fix a decent hairstyle, overload of make-up, a plastic smile and a weird angle. As soon as the photo is published the fall of never-ending comments start. For me, photography is a passion that seeped through my brain cells in an ascending order. I am one of “those” I mentioned above, trying to get the right picture for my Facebook profile by criticizing a series of photos and finally picking 1 out of 10. Eventually I was inspired by some jaw-dropping details of nature and I thought to myself. “I need to keep this”.  I haven’t done any fashion photography as such but clicking on daily basis gets me going. Random poses and weird expressions, love it! When you are the one clicking pictures the only thing that matters is to get the details right but the drawback is that if you want to be clicked and your companions don’t have the knowledge of a SLR camera and somehow they manage to get a good photo of you after a load of cribbing.  

Below are some photographs from a professional shoot:

See how he gets every strand of the hair right.

My area of expertise in photography is the face, nature and randoms. Below are some samples:

Paths Of Life

Every single person alive on this planet has dreams. To be someone, to travel somewhere or to do something. Some people do achieve for what they aspire but some don't. No one should get demoralized by that instead move on. Its difficult for a while but things fall into place eventually. So, what I'm trying to say is that, my dream was to become a fashion designer, open up my own brand, be famous, walk on the red carpet with actresses and on the ramp with models. Well, I don't know what big bang theory happened somewhere in the universe above that caused my path to change but it came as a shock to me. 

My sister studied journalism and I always thought that it was boring and I would never ever take up that. Therefore, the terrible history of my 1year of Fashion Design college. Guess what? I did end up taking up that and I'm really excited about it and I like it. I'm sure..or at least I hope that my sister is proud of me for saying this "I'm actually following in her foot-steps". Like it or not but if things don't go your way try to make the best use of what you've got or what you get. Its not about the money its about passion!..It is about the money somewhere along the line, but you know what I mean. 

I didn't get what I wished for but I did get something that will gradually take me there but in a different way. And I am absolutely alright with that. Trust me, its not hard to move on but you get there because I did.
Life is not a honky-dory ride so don't let it pull you down. You might not get what you wish for instead you might get better or worse, you just have to work around it.
