Woman Achiever 3
Here Herexpertise.com has come again with another Diva who chose to be the change by her initiative.
Meet Siddhi Jain, bubbly, charming, kiddie and a baby photography specialist. It is a different concept derived from western countries and is very challenging. It doesn’t come that easy because photography is a very expensive hobby and has a very steep learning curve to become better at your work.
Siddhi Baby Photography is a first and only professional baby photography firm in GUJARAT having collaboration with many prestigious maternity hospitals in Rajkot. The concept of hospital portraiture is completely new and unique concept in Gujarat. (In Concept of Hospital Portraiture she has collaborated Maternity Hospitals. They calls and inform her when baby born at their hospitals. She does a short photo session at hospital right there in patient's room with baby's parents, siblings and other relatives if present. She frames those photos and provides it to the hospitals. They give those framed photos to their patients as complimentary. She receives payments from hospitals.
Siddhi got love for babies from her mother in heritage, she loves to spend time with children. In 2013, her brother advised her to transform her love and passion surrounded by kids into profession. He came up to rescue her how she can proceed, what skills would be required, what is the scenario in Gujarat in this field. It helped in expand her vision. Highly inspired by her brother, Siddhi started “Siddhi Baby Photography” which proved to be the turning point of her life.
She did a job for some time to earn and save for her 1st camera. And then she went to a very famous photographer to learn the techniques. He was generous enough to teach me and master the art of photography. She started assisting them in wedding photography. People were amazed to see a girl holding camera and lights in marriage functions.
Initially she invested around 70,000 which was her savings, which she earned from her previous job without taking any sort of help from anyone. From that she purchased CAMERA, LIGHTS and some PROPS. As she is MA (psychology) the problem was she wasn't having any knowledge of camera operating at all nor she had been through any formal training of photography. Again as the concept is new, So she learnt photography and Editing from two famous wedding photographers (Devang Trivedi & Rajesh Jagani) of Rajkot who are having experience of more than 20 years in the field. She practiced and did experiments with Baby Photography and learnt it by herself. And got expertise in making Baby Portfolios. She is also a member of Rajkot Photographers Association. There are only two lady members in it. She also took a lecture on Baby Photography at Photography Club Rajkot and leads them in Photowalks for baby photography.
It’s not easy to shoot babies’ photographs as they are active, constantly moving and do not hold a position easily. It’s more like tiptoeing into the kitchen late night and stealing some ice creams from the fridge making sure your mom is sleeping. Sometimes she finds herself hanging around the street looking like a stalker or something. Actually she just watch for the right person to step in front of the lens and create that special moment.
