Ac­tor Dheeraj Dhoopar (above) calls act­ing his first love but re­cently, he has been in­vest­ing time in learn­ing some­thing new.

Dheeraj, who used to play the lead role in a daily soap on tele­vi­sion has taken a fancy to the art of pho­tog­ra­phy and is spend­ing a lot of time be­hind the lens. “I re­cently bought an amaz­ing DSLR cam­era and since then, it seems like I’ve a new toy to play with af­ter my meet­ings. Pho­tog­ra­phy has al­ways been my pas­sion and I was al­ways good at it. But I’m mak­ing that spe­cial ef­fort to learn via dif­fer­ent sources be­cause I want to com­pletely un­der­stand the technicalities be­hind it,” says Dheeraj, who tied the knot with ac­tor Vinny Arora last year.

He has also made her fond of pho­tog­ra­phy and the cou­ple gets to spend some time to­gether while learn­ing the craft. “Vinny has a knack for learn­ing new things and when she saw that I am learn­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, she joined me,” he says. Talk­ing about the nu­ances of pho­tog­ra­phy, the ac­tor says, “By tak­ing this up, I ful­fill my pas­sion and un­der­stand the im­por­tance of light, fram­ing and shot tak­ing, which even­tu­ally will help me when I am in front of the cam­era.”
