So, during my vacation I went to my hometown, Siliguri, WB to catch up with old friends and visit my old place. Summer in Kolkata, WB is brutal, its humid and hot. So, I put up a Facebook status with check-in in Siliguri and many friends from Siliguri message and ask me to meet up and catch up old times.
One of my friends, Jyotirmoy messages me and we meet up after 7 years, and trust me it’s a long gap when you’re 22 years younger, pretty crazy isn’t it? I guess it is.
So after meeting up we discuss how in seven years our lives have changed and what life has taught us. He is currently in Delhi doing B.Com from Delhi University, an avid EDM lover and loves to play his guitar. During his schooldays he had a Music Band called “Teenage Complicated”, which was quite famous among school students in Siliguri, you can find their awesome work on Soundcloud and other networking sites.
I told him that I’m following my passion and pursuing photography, he was surprised but he motivated me to pursue my passion.
So after a long chitchat I asked whether he would like to become my subject, he happily obliged and I setup 2 flashes with my Canon 600D with Tamron 17-50mm lens, I had very small place to work in (around 8’ x 12’ x 6’), height was the biggest issue. Still I managed to take some decent shots of him.
You can see the images I came up with, including behind the scenes images.
You can see Jyotirmoy helping me and Ipshita (model in the BTS photo) with poses and direction.
I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post as much as I did.
More updates coming up,stay connected.
