Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari who’s recent blockbuster film ‘Padmaavat’ has garnered a great response from the audience. The actress was also well appreciated for her role in the film.
And now, the actress has graced the cover of Vogue magazine for May 2018 edition.
The cover image of the issue has been shot on the OnePlus 6, which is said to be the first ever Indian magazine cover shot on a smartphone.
Styled by Vogue India’s Fashion Director, Anaita Shroff Adajania, Hydari is seen in a striking spring-summer ensemble. Her picture-perfect features have been captured deftly by the smartphone.
Photographer Errikos Andreou said, “As professionals, we are used to having chunky heavy cameras to shoot for assignments. So, the biggest advantage of shooting with a smartphone is the convenient size of the device and the resulting ease of portability. Also, the phone monitor with its large resolution is a great guide for image taking. You are looking at the photo before you even take it.”
Andreou added, “For the cover shot, we opted for naturally lit photos, using bouncers to manipulate the light. The OnePlus 6 offers a ‘pro’ option of shooting in ‘raw’ which is a photo file with added information that allows you to modify images once they are captured and alter aspects like light, warmth, brightness, contrast, colour, etc; much like the file of a professional camera.
Cover star Aditi Rao Hydari said, “This cover proves how our phones are multitasking super machines. And it’s the first in India so congratulations to the amazing team of Vogue! I’m happy and excited to be a part of this special innovation.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Aditi was last seen in Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Daas Dev’ alongside with Rahul Bhat, Richa Chadda and Sourabh Shukla.
