Tim Vasvi Photography is coming up to 4 years old now, even though it still seems like only yesterday to me. For those who don't already know, I started my company after receiving funding via the Princes Trust Enterprise Programme. It's a great initiative which helps young adults turn their ideas into a reality and helps get them started with the help of funding as well as guidance from an experienced Business mentor. If you have an idea for a business which you think would work, then contact them and see what they could do for you.
Photography started out as a hobby of mine while I was still in University around 8 years ago when I purchased my first DSLR, the Sony Alpha a100. After spending a large amount of money on the camera I decided to invest some time into actually getting to grips with it and began playing around with the settings and experimenting with different shooting styles.
While I was still in the process of learning how to get the most from my camera, I used to trail websites, read blog posts and follow some of my inspirations on Social Media to get tips and ideas. Now I am somewhat established myself, I feel like I should contribute to those who are now where I once started. In conjunction with my Youtube Channel, I will be posting behind the scenes of some of my shoots to give you a better idea of how I achieved my results.
Over time, I am hoping this blog will hopefully become a useful resource of information as to how some of my shots were achieved, with guides on what camera settings were used. Although I would say that the best way of getting the most out of your own images is to practice and find what suits your own shooting style, you still can't go wrong with a few pointers to start you off in the right direction.
I will also be using this blog to talk about some of the products and equipment I use in my day-to-day work flow, from camera's and lenses, to studio strobes and battery packs. These will be honest reviews on how I find the products to perform within my own workflow. As a Sony shooter I will also talk about how that compares to being in either the Canon or Nikon camps.
That's the introduction out of the way so keep your eyes peeled for the next instalment coming soon when I will be giving my first impressions of the Pixapro PowerGenerator 800 and how it performed on a recent location shoot I done with a BMW Z4M Coupe.
