Namrata Rupani

My name is Namrata Rupani. I love shooting old architecture and wildlife for myself. Commercially, I shoot weddings, events, portraits, and family portraits. I’ve been photographing for about eleven years, commercially for seven.

Photography and I were meant to be. I’m a dental surgeon as well, see what I mean?

I’m currently using a hybrid system – a Canon and a Sony – for the simple reason that my right shoulder has been crying in pain with the amount of gear I lug around.  I used to have some longer lenses a couple of years ago.

I did the Twomann Workshop in 2018 and let my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 and the Canon 135mm f/2 go. From then on, its been trying to learn to use what I have and get the best output from it.  Make life simpler for myself – so I can focus on just the photo-taking part.

Cameras

Canon 1Dx: Love the quality of imagery, dynamic range, the sound of the shutter, the FPS, how my hands wrap around it and it feels – practically everything. The only thing that I would say is a problem is the weight of the camera.

Sony A7III: Love the compactness, how lightweight it is. The tiltable screen is a huge relief for my back. But I’m not very convinced about the dynamic range as yet.

I have been using this hybrid system for about a year.

Lenses

Canon 50mm f/1.2: Love the output and the sharpness of this lens. It’s amazing for portraits in small places. Also a very fast lens.

Canon 16-35mm f/2.8: One of my oldest lenses. Always on me during weddings. Dance floor shots wouldn’t be the same without it.

Canon 100mm f/2.8: Recent addition to my kit.

Batis 85mm f/1.8: Fabulous for portraits.

Batis 18mm f/2.8: Lovely focal length to have while shooting wides – love shooting spaces and also wedding decor with it.

Sony 35mm f/2.8: My go-to lens with the Sony A7III for travel, street photography, or even at weddings.

Photography for me is something that makes things come alive – even the most mundane. It allowed me to experience what living in the moment felt like, and for that, I am forever grateful.  For me, it has been a translation of what I feel and would like to communicate without having to say anything verbally.
