Today we’re kicking off a regular ProCamera Spotlight feature highlighting talented photographers who are using ProCamera as part of their creative process.
The first featured photographer is Australian based Gurveer Suri. I found Suri’s work looking through the #ProCamera hashtag on Instagram. I was immediately drawn to his impressive aerial imagery, showing the rich colours and textures of regional Australia.
Suri was kind enough to talk to us about his work and why he uses ProCamera.
Q | Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born in India but I moved to Singapore, lived there for the past six years and now I’m in Ballarat, Australia. I have been training to be a pilot since August this year and I have flown around 74 hours and got a few 100 more to go.
Q | Why have you chosen to use ProCamera for your aerial photography? Are there any features that help with this type of photography?
I first came across ProCamera when I was in Singapore. The app gives me control over certain aspects that the normal camera in the iPhone 4 doesn’t, such as Expert Mode and Anti-shake which I feel in aerial photography are the best as I won’t have to worry about my picture being in focus for the area I’m trying to capture.
So when I’m flying I am just simply able to point and with a few taps I am able to get what I want which is something I really love about this app. The editing features are pretty good as well because usually I just use brightness and contrast as my editing tools which the editing section gives decent control of.
Q | Can you share a recent favourite photo and tell us how you took it and why you like it?
The picture above is of Melbourne city from 1,500ft departing from Essendon airport. I love this picture because, firstly it’s come out in great detail, secondly it not only did capture the city skyline but the mountain range in the backdrop which I personally feel is great for an iPhone 4 camera.
You can find more of Suri’s wonderful images on his Instagram feed under the @gr00vebeer handle. Thank you Gurveer Suri for sharing your beautiful images.
