The lockdown in several countries across the world including India has disrupted everyone’s lives to various degrees. Couples have been forced to cancel or postpone their weddings and the Indian wedding industry, which is usually buzzing all year round, is experiencing an all-time low. But as they say, tough situations bring out the most unexpected talents.
Yup, a well know Chandigarh based wedding photographer, Naman Verma came out with the most unusual way to do pre-wedding couple photoshoots while being quarantined. He used FaceTime and the results are not what you'd expect!
Inspired by Italian photographer Alessio Albi, Naman Verma has done two photoshoots as of now and they both came out pretty amazing. Naman, who has an impressive following of 44.7K on Instagram, took to his handle and posted the series of pictures and his caption read, “I was highly inspired by this idea of keeping the creative juices flowing even during lockdown, (however) with bad internet reception, I was so not sure how it would turn out”.
Naman further shared that although it was challenging to communicate the exact frame he was visualising, he was really happy with results.
Take a look at the amazing FaceTime photoshoot of the couple Anupreet Sidhu and Akshit Chaudhary:
Another couple that Naman shot was Aditya and Aman from New Jersey. The indoor photoshoot of the same-sex couple via FaceTime is all about love and the pictures speak for themselves. Narrating his experience, Amit took to the ‘Gram and posted the amazing photos. "We’ve been trying to shoot with Naman since he was in NY last (three years ago), but the timing just didn’t work out. Who would have thought we’d be able to do a photoshoot between Delhi and New Jersey over FaceTime!? This process was proof that ART NEVER STOPS,” he shared.
Considering the method of shooting, there are many things that can go wrong - from unstable internet connection to the quality of pictures, but Naman managed to deliver some great photographs that the couples will cherish forever. Moreover, these pictures really will have a story to tell!
