It feels fascinating to go about watching a young woman from India produce such wildly incredible fine-art photographs. Yes, Bhumika Bhatia is such a gifted photographer who chooses to shoot the wild things and her own dreams. As she recalls within, it all started 4 years ago while she was discovered her pure passion towards photography. Since then there was no looking back. About her photographs, most of them are indoor with a vivid touch of romance, seductiveness, gloomy mood and above all love. Her knowledge and taste towards color schema is incredible and makes me to go about dreaming with these photographs.
Lets get drenched with some mind-blowing photographs of pure love and artistic galore.
Can you please introduce yourself?
Hello, I’m Bhumika, a portrait photographer who tries to photograph her dreams and loves darkness and everything magical.
What fascinates you to capture these precious fine art portraits?
I don’t think I would ever be able to answer this question because it’s very hard to pick a thing or two. But, I am absolutely fascinated by sensitivity, romanticism, Tim Burton, witchcraft just to name a few.
What inspires you to keep up this consistent habit of traveling & photography?
I have these dreams filled with the melodic singles of indie rock bands, blank pages and words pouring out of plants, daisies, rabbits in top hats singing lullabies to lost love, golden dragons circling the graves of their mother, trains to hell and elevators to heaven, somewhere in an ocean of skin, somewhere in a sky filled with sin. And though you might not have witnessed them, I believe it all to be as real as anything else I have ever seen.
What does it take to make a good photograph?
A good story, subject and little bit of magic.
How important is post production in your workflow?
There is a very thin line between art and crap. An edit can enhance or destroy your masterpiece; I’d like to say that it doesn’t make you bad photographer if you use photoshop, it actually helps you to get your story out. With each and every edit that you do- you’ll know when to stop. Keep it subtle, don’t overdo it.
What camera and lighting gear do you use for a typical shoot?
Since I’ve started out 95% of my work has been shot on my granddads film camera or my canon 500D and i love my 50mm. And lighting, I’m a sucker for overcast days.
Apart from photography, what are your hobbies?
Music and collecting things (be it anything! from rocks to socks)
Any tips/advice for aspiring photographers?
Shoot, shoot and shoot! The more you do it, the better you’ll get. Also, please believe in your dreams, people will criticise you, learn how to differentiate between good criticism and bad criticism. Never let them break your passion! You are special. If you don’t stand up for what you believe in, who will?
