Samindri & Shanali

Taking photographs for fashion I feel is quite different from other forms of photography. I mean, the basic technical stuff like exposing and focusing correctly is there, but it is still very different in the sense that you have to capture the very essence of your subject; who they are. You literally have to use your camera in the same way a painter would use his brushes and paint and tell the story of your subject. I feel that is what would make a great photo. For this shoot I was practicing something called the ‘rule of thumb’ where your shutter speed is basically double the focal length. For example, if you are using a 50mm lens your shutter speed should be at least 1/100 to get a sharp shot. Many thanks to Samindri Dewaligoda and her sister Shanali for their time and patience.
