Thanks Rati and Sanjeev for organizing this contest.. :rose: :rose:

loved it and had amazing time clicking piccys for all the rounds.. This was one confidence booster for me.. I have never got myself clicked like this before for I was way too shy and used to think that I’d look funny, outta shape and what not.. but this helped me shed all those inhibitions and feel good about myself…. :)) :))

Thanks a ton :)) :)) :))

Love,
Dipti

Hi Dipti,

More than anybody else (maybe perhaps the other contestants) Rati and I know what you mean. Rati took time to come out of her shell and be relaxed about the pics. Not only that slowly it has become fun for us.

We really hope that you continue doing this. You have a great sense of style and we would love to keep seeing your pics on IMBB. πŸ™‚

Reply

Rati April 2, 2012 at 11:42 am

awww dipti i love your photo shoots. I am not one of those who stick to dressing up according to body shape. but you are definitely one of those who know exactly how to dress up according to your body shape. And you rock it babes! and over a period of time I feel fashion is fun. if you are having fun doing it, it does come across to others. :)) Don’t ever go back in your shell now. :-*

Reply

Dipti C April 2, 2012 at 11:45 am

true Sanjeev it’s more about being relaxed and enjoying the process.. I remember how nervous I was while clicking pics for the first round and by the time it was final round I was quite relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed it… :)) :))

Rati’s graph is increasing day by day…I always look forward to her OOTD posts..I love Rati’s sense of style and love your photography skills… you guys are brilliant.. :yes: :yes:
