Lumia730 features a wide-angle front-camera and it can be used to click images in wedding too. It is also treated as a wedding photography phone and with the latest trend, sharing selfies is a new thing. Wild, quirky, off beat, candid, colorful – the flavor of his work is an amalgamation of all this and more.
According to Vijay Tonk,
“I have always looked forward to experimenting and trying something new with wedding photography. Capturing an entire wedding through selfies was an idea that I had been contemplating for sometime considering the trend for Selfies but couldn’t find the right equipment to do justice to the ambitious idea. Fortunately, the Lumia 730 had all the features packed into one device that could turn my dream project into reality. Shooting with the Lumia 730 was a completely different experience. It was interesting to direct shots and get the couple and their families to take those selfies. It was a challenge to get the right shot but at the same time fun as everyone was thoroughly enjoying themselves and having a gala time.”
Raghuvesh Sarup, Director – Marketing, Nokia India Sales Pvt. Ltd., (A subsidiary of Microsoft Mobiles Oy), said,
“Selfies have captured everyone’s imagination and the youth today is going all out clicking selfies. We decided to extend this trend to weddings and conceptualized the first ever selfie wedding in India. #Selfieshaadi, the first of its kind initiative gave ‘to be wed couples’ a new and an innovative way to document their wedding, capturing the best frames and angles to showcase the wedding frenzy and moments of their special day through selfies. To capture #selfieshaadi, the first ever selfie wedding in India we brought on board the popular candid photography team Think Tonk to conceptualise and direct the shoot which was completely captured using the wide-angle 5MP front-facing camera of the Lumia 730 and edited as well. The results have been great and we are excited to share this concept with our consumers.”
