My Evolution in Photography:

Photography was more of a byproduct of my first big passion - DRIVING & TRAVELING.
Of late, photography for me is primarily about BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY and almost 95% of my clicks are dedicated to birds, remaining 5% goes into other aspects of photography.

Some of the types (styles) of photography that I have laid my hands on are as below: (Click on each to see in details)

  1. Wildlife / Bird Photography 
  2. Bokeh Photography
  3. Time-lapse photography
  4. Pet Photography 
  5. Landscape Photography 
  6. Astro Photography
  7. Butterfly Photography 
  8. Night / Low Light Photography
  9. Slow Shutter Photography

  11. Panning / Motion Blur

  13. Portrait Photography

Also a note to be mentioned here: I'm  a non believer and non user of Photoshop. I only rely on Canon's RAW processing software and all the captured images are post processed only through Canon software.

Started-off my odyssey as a 10 year old when I wanted to test how a snazzy looking button works on my dad's automatic film camera. Just press it and VOILA! a beautiful sound of the entire film reversing and going into the roll, spoiled the entire trip's memories.

Year 2003: Then graduated to Kodak KB-10 in my post-graduation days.

Year 2006 After that the mobile camera revolution started and my Moto Razr V3i with it's 1.3 MP Camera was good enough for me to test the earlier days of my digital photography.

Year 2009: Realized it's time to move on and buy a decent camera, finally got the best point-and-shoot in business those days the SONT T-77

Year 2012: Bought my first SLR camera Canon 1100D just before we planned a trip to Jim Cobett with the hope of clicking the tiger. So this is what triggered the passion and then I happily walked into the road where I knew I would never be able to turn back.

Year 2014: Bought my next DSLR camera - The Canon 70D coupled it with the 400 mm Telephoto. Surely a big dent in my pocket but worth every penny spent.Life has never been the same after that.

With every passing day, this hobby became so serious that now I dedicate a portion of my pay-check every month to fulfill the needs and wants of this (never so expected) expensive hobby. But the fun and satisfaction that I derive after I make every click, is beyond any justification of human logic.
