Meet Vaishnav / Unnikkuttan, my cousin brother Rejuettan's son.
The biggest problem in taking portraits indoor is always light. A flash is not as useful as people generally believe. It just spoils the pic most of the time, with uneven lighting. In indoor lighting conditions, with all curtains raised and lights on, I get abt 1/25 with the aperture set to the maximum (f/2.5 in my 50mm compact macro) @ ISO 100. I now understand what those wedding photographers are going through and why those elaborate lighting equipments are needed. Its indeed a tough ask to create uniform lighting.
In the first picture, I used ISO 100 and somehow managed to get one picture @ 1/25s without blur. The second and third pic is taken with ISO 800, giving me abt 1/160s. I somehow dont like trying out higher ISO, but here, this was the only option I had. All pics are taken with the maximum aperture width of f/2.5.
