Yes, yes, it’s been kinda slim. No real postings here for about a week. There is a reason for just about anything isn’t there? This one happens to be valid. I am swamped with other work – work that requires more of my attention cuz it pays the bills.
I had to design an advertisement for my wedding photojournalism business – PIPAL PRODUCTIONS. This is what I came up with. It will appear intermittently in The Gujarat Times. Feel free to snag this image and circulate it among your friends. I would really appreciate it.
I also was busy putting the finishing touches to an article for SHAADI STYLE, a magazine based in Boston. The article was about what brides and bridegrooms ought to know about ordering high end photo albums. Coincidentally, I received two copies of the Fall issue of Shaadi Style that carried my first article for them on the merits of hiring a wedding photojournalist. Yes, it hints at self-promotion, but I wasn’t pitching just my company. I happen to believe that staged, canned photography has no place at a wedding when the entire event is so spontaneous (I am talking about desi weddings, mind you).
I’ll post links to both those articles in a couple of days. In the Fall issue was also my first ever advertisement. Here it is in all its glory. Which one do you prefer, the one on the top or the one below? Do tell.
