Passion Goes A Long Way - Vinit Jadhav

I would like to say to aspiring photographers that Start with what you have. Start clicking pictures, and never get disappointed when you failed to get a photograph that you have imagined in your mind. You didn't get the desired output because something was incomplete, research about that photography type and you will definitely get the desired output after some failed attempts. 

 

1. Tell us about your background and journey.

Hi !! I'm Vinit Jadhav. I'm a full time engineering undergraduate, but I try to cultivate my hobbies daily. As of now, Photography is my hobby, because no one has seen it tomorrow. I tried multiple things in my short last 19 years of journey, I learnt to play the guitar, I did some theatre shows, been a host for some college shows and many more. 

But photography is something which I can't ignore in my happening life. I try to photograph the moments around me meanwhile, in my free time at home, I try to practice some photography genre that can be practiced at home.


2. How and when did you realize your passion for photography?


I captured my first photograph which amazed me was around 3 years ago when I was traveling to my hometown in the early morning. Our car was moving around 80-90km/hr and I captured a Silhouette photograph of the temple with a bright yellow sun. At that time I didn't know much about photography, but that picture made me do research about cameras on my phone.

Then I realized that I have a phone which can capture nice photographs during daytime. So I started to capture any random things and moments around me and started to visit places to capture amazing moments. With the time I learned how to frame things and adjust the settings of the camera to capture amazing photographs.

There were to friends of mine from which I learned that the expensive camera is not required to captured and I started my journey with my phone, from then I have tried many types of photography.


3. What are some tips you would like to share with amateur photographers?


I would like to say to aspiring photographers that Start with what you have. Start clicking pictures, and never get disappointed when you failed to get a photograph that you have imagined in your mind. You didn't get the desired output because something was incomplete, research about that photography type and you will definitely get the desired output after some failed attempts.

Secondly, I would like to say that post-processing an image is not photography, it is a part of photography. Try to adjust colors, exposure, etc while capturing.

Lastly, capture photographs for yourself don't think about what others will say over this.


4. What are the important skills one should have to be a successful photographer?


The first basic skill in photography is having an extra-ordinary vision that most of the others don't have.

After that, the basic skill is to frame the photograph perfectly. framing is most important in photography. Then there are tons of rules with you can make your photographs better, on of them is the Rule of thirds.

The more you take the interest, the more you will get to know.


5. What are the various opportunities available for aspiring photographers?


There are various opportunities for aspiring photographers. For the projects first, we have to show our work for that use social media platforms to attract people towards your content. There are some apps for only photography-related stuff like 500px. And don't hesitate to work for free in the starting stage.          

6. Which is your favorite book and why?


I've read very few books and my favorite is An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. this is my favorite book because of the story and the way she told the story is fabulous. This the best book I've read so far.
