Firstly, I would like to welcome and thank you for stopping by my site and having a look at my work. Everyone is born with special talents, or special abilities to do certain things. The intense desire of doing things we most like doing is what we call passion and this passion is the driving force behind all the photographs I take. Nature has always attracted me with its vastness, vistas, moods, colours, extremities and what not. In my early days I used to be a landscape painter to express my vision on canvas. This went on till I started my business after studies, which caused shortage of time to nurture the hobby further. Later, when I thought of starting with it again, by coincidence, the camera was a medium most available to me. So, I happened to become a photographer.
As a landscape photographer I believe that being at the right place at the right time to capture that perfect light and that stunning split second moment is the key to make a perfect picture. No photograph can ever be eye-catching unless it obeys the golden rules of photography which crafts the art in it. The rule of third is the most commonly used theory of composition in photography. Sometimes stunning images can also be created by breaking these golden rules but knowing the rule first then breaking the same will set us apart.
The camera alone is not capable of recording the scene which we have seen or experienced in the field. Unlike the human eye, it lacks a wide dynamic range where we can see details in both dark and bright areas of a scene. No single tool is perfect, so a photographer has to take the help of post-processing techniques. The process in this pursuit of mine involves paying meticulous attention to details and technique on the field, along with some precision work in today’s digital darkroom. To further optimize, fine tune and adjust contrasts, colors, tonalities, luminosity, etc.of the picture, in order to present the viewer the optimal sense of being at the scene. To sum up, artists will always find ways to express themselves by whatever means are available to them.
