Drawing With Light and Creating Monochromes

Vinod Krishnan, Ace Fashion & Celebrity Photographer

Vinod Krishnan’s camera is starstruck, quite literally! He spills the beans about some of his favourite Bollywood stars, and shares with us, at Red Polka (www.redpolka.com), his behind-the-camera experiences in the fashion industry!

For Ace fashion and celebrity photographer- Vinod Krishnan, photographers are “visual storytellers” who capture the drama of life. He says, “The world is full of exciting stories waiting to be told. The camera is only a medium. Whether it is an exotic dish cooked by a master-chef, a happy child running carefree, a woman expressing her many moods or a sleepy city waking up on a holiday… every photograph of mine tells a unique story.”

Ask him to share one of his memorable experiences in the profession and he recalls, “My favourite moment was when Sri Sathya Sai Baba agreed to be photographed by me.” While story telling through visual drama comes naturally to him, he has been mentored by evolved masters like Ian Periera, Farookh Chothia and Tarun Vishwa to make him better at his art.

Vinod has shared some of the most precious moments with the whos-who of Bollywood! When Vinod was a mere beginner in the industry, Chi Chi (Govinda) ensured that he was on a flight to Udaipur with him and gave him ample time to shoot a few pictures on location. He loved most of the photographs and got some of them enlarged for his personal collection. He also introduced Vinod to some leading publications. India’s ultimate entertainer’s advice still rings fresh ‘A good picture becomes great when it has the soul in it’. The glorious journey with the stars kicked off, and Vinod still remains humble about his art.

For amateur photographers, he suggests: “Photography as a profession is not a sprint; it’s a marathon. Just keep shooting. The camera is merely equipment. The magic lies in one’s imagination.”

 After a flash of clicking inspiration, let’s use some tips by Vinod Krishnan on everyday photography. Take note:

Make eye-contact, engage and listen to your subject

Pay attention to good lighting

Don’t use flash, use natural light

Investing in a selfie stick is a good idea

Use a plain/contrast background

Click a lot of pictures and get feedback

Draw attention to something in your photograph by framing

Even when you’re not shooting, shoot with your mind. Practice noticing expressions and light conditions.

Feast for your eyes
