Print Sale for charity

It is that time of the year to look back, contemplate and be grateful for. Last year I started to sell my work for charity, my small contribution. All the images displayed in this blog post are for sale. All the prints are 12 by 18 inches - $50 ( which includes S&H) - Print sales in US & Canada. For everyone outside the US - you can get a high-resolution e-image, that  I will email to you and you can get it printed to any size.

100% of the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Each one in the collages above is a separate print.

Thank you so much for saving lives and supporting this cause. Email me for inquiries:

Sunday Stills - Tip for working with ice

This is real ice and not fake. I love to use real ice in shoots as it just adds to the authenticity of the image. When using ice, I usually like to buy it from the grocery store, love the shapes and texture and some reason it is not foggy like the ice I make at home.

For this shot, I used multiple reflectors...the ice acts like a mirror, reflecting light. I have seen backlight works best for ice images like this, with a couple of reflectors on the side.

Wanted to showcase caviar like a jewel... hope it worked

Do you like it with ice or without ??

Sunday Stills and a photography tip on White Balance

Sunday Stills and a photography tip on White Balance -SimiJois
When photographing different shades of white - use auto WB mode or when you edit, use the WB dropper in Photoshop and click on the brightest white. You will have perfect shades of whites, no pale yellows or extreme-blue-whites.

The white on white above is very different white than the one below  (last one). Shot on different days, different light and different whites but both equally white and pristine.

If you are interested to learn hands-on here.

Food Styling and photography workshop - November - 2018

Food Photography is much like painting, a blank canvas with endless possibilities. From colors, to prop placement, to framing, angle, lens choices... you have so many tools to play with.  I'm honored to partner with DCP Expeditions to conduct a food photography and styling workshop in Mumbai on November 17th.  I'm really so excited about this event. It is an all-day workshop and definitely hands on.

Some of the broad topics I will cover are

- Composition
- Styling
- Color theory
- Light molding
- How to capture steam
- How to shoot moody
- How to shoot white on white

If there is anything else you want me to cover, you can reach me here or message me on Social Media.

I am also planning an ongoing interaction and learning so we can keep the momentum going even after the workshop - still a work in progress. Will reveal more when we meet.

So bring your camera and join me in Mumbai on Nov 17th. Hope to see you there.

Sunday Stills with styling tips

I'm restarting my SundayStills with a tip every week. This week's tip is, if you are planning to photograph fresh produce, make sure you take them out of the refrigerator at least an hour or two before the shoot. Shoot them at room temperature, especially if they are red color produce. I do not know the science behind it, but I can tell you from experience, the difference is visually perceptive.

Thanks for stopping by. If you want me to ask me questions about styling/photography, email me and I will try my best to answer it. IF you want me to work on tutorials, let me know and your wish is my!

Have a fabulous week ahead.
