Wink ;)

Looking at photos of pretty looking models is a great way to pass time.
Especially if they wink at you

Though sometimes they can scream back at you..

Cinemagraphs! A new, fun way forward in photography..

Renovation – The Epiphany

Vikram Bawa had an epiphany about giving the studio a fresh new look, to revitalize the ENERGY FLOW in the studio and TEAM VB.

In reality, it was mostly energy getting out, raw muscle power used to lift up heavy tables, background rolls and the huge ‘casket’ that housed these rolls.

It was some day…where all of us wore our clean-up hats and started doing the assigned chores. Each and every person, big or small, was sweating it out. From nuts and bolts to shards of wood flying, it was chaos at its best.

It was like building a home to live together. We all took ownership for it, and the positive energy had already begun flowing in.

Worth the wait isn’t it?

CGI – The Future of Photography

We’re helping photography evolve, and here is another new step in this direction – CGI, a.k.a. Computer Generated Imagery!

We are crossing new boundaries. We are infusing photography with CGI. It is a challenge. However, we are taking it head on. After all, we got ourselves into this!

It is a test of patience when the renders take much over 24 hours for a single frame. This unending wait has its share of emotional drama and trauma attached to it. It almost feels like a mother waiting 9 months for her baby’s birth (not that we know how that feels, but still, metaphorically).

However, once the renders are complete, and your creation is right there, in front of you, an ecstatic feeling of accomplishment overwhelms you.

We make fake look real, and real people are convinced of the fake things being real! We love it!!
