Sonakshi Sinha is so cool! She is like your buddy who plays dress-up for a couple of hours and then goes back to being normal.

This is an amazing quality that comes across so effortlessly and makes her, in my opinion, as successful as she is.

For this shoot, the theme we discussed with Femina was “boho looks”. We decided to go for a pattern overload. Patterns upon patterns, upon patterns and shoot this in a soft, moody, sensual way. We looked for a space that could possibly accommodate us and the Good Earth store in Mumbai was perfect.

I only used one light for this shoot, a profoto B1 with a profoto XL Deep Umbrella. The B1 lights are favorites of mine when shooting on location as I do not have to worry about power supply or have cables and extensions to worry about. Same with the umbrella. It is so easily folded and unfolded and the light shaping is GREAT!!

Akshita Singh styled this shoot and Namrata Soni did  Sonakshi’s hair and makeup.

Beauty Shoot
Aesthetically I love strong contrasts and when conditions are giving me nice clean sharp sunlight the results are almost every time pleasing.
Personal Shoot
To focus on personal work means you break free of the rules that come with the assigned projects. Everyone is free to be a bit risky and creative, think outside the box and pitch in ideas.
