“To be a photographer, one must photograph. No amount of book learning, no checklist of seminars attended, can substitute for the simple act of making pictures. Experience is the best teacher of all. And for that, there is no guarantee that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.”

HI, i was wondering on a sunny day what would you chose for shutter speed and iso? I am struggling with it so much, and i just can't find the right combo :/

A

Depending on which angle you’re shooting at but I’m usually at 1/3200 — 1/4000 and fluctuate the ISO between 100-400 depending on the direction of the sun etc
Hope that helps! :)

- We had the immense pleasure of travelling to Houston, TX, to cover this beautiful wedding, can’t wait to share more pics! :)

How did you learn to edit? Did you take classes or just practice and patience?

A

I have always believed in that saying - practice makes perfect, so yes practice practice practice :)

I’ve been an avid photoshop junkie since i was 13 years old, and then when lightroom came along, well lets just say my life changed forever :p

- Me and Fareha used to be neighbor’s so when I was approached to cover her dholki I was so honored. Having known her for years it was really nice to be able to be a part of her wedding festivities. It was so fun covering the event and being able to dance and sing as well! The laughing, the thumkas, the smiles and the happiness was everywhere that night and I know we will all remember it with fond memories. 
The highlight for me was definitely the mini shoot we did before the dholki. The weather had been so bipolar that day and as we were shooting it was sunny and then heavy overcast the next minute, I have to hand it to her though, she was able to brave the cold wind with me as we got the most amazing shots of her! (I am also very sorry for putting you through that <3 but I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed taking them!)
