An Interview with Fashion Writer - Janvi Manchanda



Hello All , I am creating this post after a long time . Apologies :) .
 So this time I am taking an interview of Fashion Writer Janvi , Here it goes .

Hello Janvi , could you brief about your journey towards Fashion writing from student to this stage ?

Ans: Somehow dressing up came to me naturally and that just wasn't enough for me. I went from stealing my dad's xl tees to picking up the perfect outfit for my body type and occasion. And I just knew I wanted to do much more. Towards the end of my second year in degree college, I applied to this magazine - Youth Incorporated for an internship and when I was called for the interview they asked me what I wanted to do marketing or editorial and something inside of me begged me to pick editorial and that was it! That was how I started writing. The editor, Ayush Aliawadi, mentored me. He pushed me to do better and he inspired me. At the age of 24/25 he was a lawyer, Radio Jockey with All India Radio and he was also the editor of the magazine. I wanted to do a lot more just like him! And eventually I was writing my own fashion column in a magazine, The Teenager Today, for a year by the time I graduated. And then came the journey to becoming an influencer and a stylist. My boyfriend was very supportive and he saw that I had a good number of followers on Instagram and he pushed me to do better. He worked on my profile and pushed me to do the same and create better content.

Interview with Amazing Photographer



Hello All ,

I would like to continue our journey of an interview with various personalities from different domains. And here it goes with Dr. Adwait Aphale the amazing wildlife photographer. I am sharing the interview excerpt. Kindly visit the www.wildlifestorties.in and www.adwaitaaphale.com.

Can you brief about the journey towards Photography domain from student to this stage?

My affair with the camera started at a very young age when I read a book in our library named "Camera “. Looking at my interest level in reading a pretty technical book on the camera my father must have sensed something and gifted me a Film SLR camera Vivitar3000S in 1994. With this "the affair" turned into serious love making me work on complete manual mode and understand the fundamentals of photography thoroughly.
I started experimenting with landscapes , protraits in natural light trying to catch candid moments. Looking at the images made by me during this journey my father took me to meet a great photographer of kolhapur Mr Chandrkant Patil sir who just looked at the images and advised my father "Either to upgrade my camera body with prime lens or to take out the camera from my hand “ Your child is spoilt Mr Aphale he needs better lenses , he has that EYE to narrate a story out of an image “. I was happy with this remark but destiny had some other plans . Later I went to pursue my degree course in dental surgery but the love for my camera kept on growing.
The love converted into a complete relationship when I bought an Olympus E 410 and started doing serious photography work with portraits , landscapes , & macro. Some of my work was published in Daily Sakal , Dental practise magazine during that time. My work is also published in a caleder form since 2013 featuring different themes like cityscapes , macro, nature , birds , Greater Flamingos and Mammals. I have also contributed articles on Intraoral photography in journals like Aesthetic Expression. Conducted courses and workshops on dental photography at various conferences.
Won awards at national level photography competitions Of dental practise magazine , FONA, Better photography . Selective work was exhibited in prestigious exibitions of KVIFF, FONA, Srushti exhibition Nagpur , TGIS Bangalore. Recently i have won the prestigious award of Nature best asia  in wild life category . The winning image has been displayed at the  tokyo and natural history museum exhibition .
Currenly my focus is completely on wildlife photography and Bird photography and also digital painting. Studying the behaviour patterns of these animals and spreading the educative information is the motto of my New venture called Wildlifestories.
Currently working with Nikon Gears , photography has now become an integral part of my life and gives me peace of mind and acts as a perfect stress buster , and a way of Meditation.
