It is easy to forget that most of the world is too small to see when we are in nature. Sasi Kumar is a 20-year-old amateur photographer from India. He uses a standard photo camera on his phone.
“Photography is about the depth of feeling not the depth of field,” Kumar shared his philosophy. He explained how important it is for a photographer to have patience and passion. We have a full interview with Kumar.
Let us know what you think of the photos in the comments below.
Kumar spoke about what got his attention to macro photography and the challenges he faced on his journey. Here’s what he said: “At first, I was going with common photo ideas, but after some days, I thought of being unique and wanted to stand out.”
That’s when he decided to try taking macro photographs. “So I tried macros and I learned them in depth.” The photographer is learning more and more photography hacks every day, but he still has a way to go.
“The challenging thing in macro photography is that handling a phone with lenses is a bit difficult. If there is a minute shake that can be a photo-spoiler,” he said. “Photos could be bad and spoiled because of unexpected wind, shakes, sound, etc.” That means that patience is key.
Kumar is an engineering student who wants to be a software developer while also being a photographer. He thinks insects are beautiful creatures that enhance the beauty of nature.
We wanted to know if he had any advice for other photographers. Kumar implied that he was not yet at the level to give out advice. macro photography is all about patience, passion, and lots of dedication.
“It also includes learning from the spoiled picture. Never stop learning in this field. Every take for a single picture may lead to an extraordinary output later. Accept mistakes from previous pictures, take both negatives and positives from feedback, suggestions, and opinions.”
“Photos are not just meant for likes, they could depict an amazing story. Perspective is everything.“
Kumar takes macro photos. There are two phones, a OnePlus 6t and a Redmi Note 3. He uses his phone to take pictures of insects as they go about their day.
