My mother just went back home after staying with us for a month. It was so hard for me to say goodbye to her at the airport as I knew I need to wait a year or two to see her again!

Photos were all taken with Sony A7R + Voigtlander 50mm f/1.8 Aspherical

Melbourne Wedding – Saba and Ali

Shoots

Some months ago, I was asked by a friend to photograph his wedding although I have never done a job like that before! In the past, I have been mainly engaged in shooting portrait, fashion and long exposure photography however, deep down I liked to have an opportunity to evaluate my skills in a quite challenging scenario like a wedding! When Saba and Ali asked me if I am willing to shoot their wedding, I happily accepted their offer! We made an appointment to discuss the wedding plan and what their requirements were. It was going to be a simple ceremony but a lovely one. I asked my wife who is a professional photographer as well to assist me with the engagement photos and the reception. However, I decided to let her photograph the whole reception on her own and I could not be happier with the result. Here, I officially say thank you to my beautiful wife for doing an amazing job that day.

The followings are some of the photos from that day taken by Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID and Sony A7R;

A New Challenge: Newborn Photography

I have never had the experience of shooting a newborn before however, I was honoured to ask to photograph a cute baby boy called Rayan three weeks ago! It was really a rewarding experience that made me want to photograph more newborns. All the following photos were taken comfortably at their family home. Some shots were made with natural light and others with portable studio lights. I believe it is more convenient both for the parents and babies to have the photographer in rather than drving to a traditional studio! On the other hand, having photos done in an actual home where the whole family lives effortlessly makes photographs real, precious and memorable.

If you would like me to photograph your beautiful family/newborn, just drop me a line!

In March, I had the pleasure of meeting the Ayati family while visiting their daughter in Melbourne, Australia. We chose to shoot in Melbourne CBD so that they can take a glimpse of Melbourne lifestyle back to their home country. All photos were taken with my trusty Mamiya RZ Pro IID and Mamiya DM22 digital back.

Sony A7R with Canon 50mm f/0.95

Review

I have recently purchased a Sony A7R for the occasions when using my Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID is not an option. Also my better half is going to use it exclusively when shooting engagements and weddings as second shooter. We have planned to use it with Sony A-mount autofocus lenses however, using legacy manual focus lenses with this camera has been on my mind for a while. Last night, it was our first wedding anniversary so we booked a table at Bombay by Night restaurant, owned by the fellow photographer Ravnish Gandhi. He was kind enough to let me try his Canon 50mm f/0.95 with the A7R while we were deciding what to order for entree! When both of us saw him with the lens, we forgot about why we were actually there! This lens is really something special! I mounted it on the camera using a Voigtlander close-up adapter for Sony NEX cameras. I am really blown away by its beautiful rendering and colour tones! See the photo from the last night and stay tuned as more photos are coming up!
