Roshan Mandavkar is a 20-year-old professional photographer who captures portraits, people in situations and real life events in an artistic manner. Roshan owes his inspiration to his friend with exceptional photo skills when he was in grade 9!
Sumedh Sawant is one of those persons who inspire him because of his will, determination, perseverance and the willingness to never stop learning.
As a kid, Mandavkar was very fond of painting which is art and very similar to photography, he says. During this time he came with an idea to click first and paint the same picture later. This is when he realised there is a lot more to than just taking a photo.
He believes photography is not only about creativity and clicking photos, basics are to be known. Roshan joined a photography institute to acquire the fundamentals of photography, he also got to meet people who were creative, had amazing vision, were willing to share and always willing to learn.
Roshan started out with a Canon 600D enough for his amateur days as a photographer graduating to a Canon 5D Mark III. He uses Adobe Photoshop CS6 for post-processing his works.
The young lensman imagines how a picture would look before clicking a photo. He then decides on the background, foreground, his subject and lastly the exposure.
He then compares the picture taken to his actual visualisation, if the picture is the way he had imagined he goes ahead otherwise he keeps clicking till he achieves the point.
