Photography of the month - March'15!
Anbu Jawahar is an artist by training, a designer by profession, and a photographer by aptitude.Anbu took to full-time photography in 2010, deciding to focus on weddings and portraiture and there is no looking back, since then. Happy to feature Anbu Jawahar Photography as the Photography of the month. Anbu's interest in photography grew when he started using an analog SLR while in college and maintained his interest in photography over the years while he passed through other visual media- dabbling in video production, learning digital editing and finally multi-media design. Anbu loves using technology and gadgets. Digital photography provides a happy marriage of all the various skills and preferences that Anbu has acquired over the years. His style of photography melds the techniques of the different media he has worked in, with his formative training as an artist. The influence of the different media on his work is especially apparent in the composition and post-processing of his photographs. Anbu loves all things new: people, technology, gadgets, whatever. It is this restless search for the new in all things that motivates him to try different things and makes him a good learner as well. He constantly tries to update himself; mainly sourcing inspiration, tips and techniques from other photographers all around the world and from the world wide web. And the search is on. Given that he is very social and yet can be an unobtrusive presence, he is able to participate in as well as capture the fleeting moments in a wedding ceremony that make for wonderful memories. He also loves to bring romance into his work both in terms of subjects as well as treatment, and works with the couples to bring this aspect to the fore. "Weddings present a dramatic canvas against which I do what I like to do-photograph people. While Indian weddings are lively, colourful and dramatic, they are also extremely complicated affairs. Large crowds milling about small spaces, even blocking out the couple; overdone decorations, clashing colours, bad lighting compounded by smoking fires, flocks of photographers (family, friends and hired guns) jostling for space, whimsical priests, piles of random objects scattered around, confusion over what is to be done, when and by whom all make for high entertainment and challenge. My effort in such situations is to focus on the marriage taking place during the wedding-looking to capture precious moments as beautifully as I can; between the couple and around them, among the families, and in the numerous nuances that constitute the Indian wedding. Hoping to preserve the essence of those moments for future memories."
