“Meaningful photographs are made from meaningful experiences, not just photographic experiences” – Unknown
I am an amateur in every sense of the word! Photography is (very much) like a religion to me. Although, one can say that nature is my favorite subject, I love to photograph almost anything. I think photographing people is the most challenging.
I admire many photographers and the list is really very long. However, I would love to mention my very favorites — Steichen, Kertész, Henri Lartigue, Álvarez Bravo, Ansel Adams, Ernst Haas, Eliot Porter, Cartier Bresson, Galen Rowell, John Shaw, David Muench, Jack Dykinga, Mitsuaki Iwago, Frans Lanting, Art Wolfe, Steve McCurry, James Nachtwey, Sebastião Salgado & the list goes on …
My approach towards photography:
I usually post-process most of my photographs. I sharpen my photographs, as I almost always shoot RAW, and I usually enhance/saturate colors a little, correct white balance if necessary (as I usually shoot in AWB) and tweak the level/curve to make the picture that I want to portray. Sometimes I also crop my images, if that is absolutely necessary (most of the time, I try to make this decision during the capture). For HDRs, I like to keep it “natural looking”, and I don’t appreciate the HDR look in photographs (just a personal matter of taste and no complains).
I have presented a collection of my images here which I divided into separate themes (galleries). Click on the following images to go to the respective galleries. I hope you will like them.
[Note: I am currently in the process of creating this site. More galleries coming soon.]
I also host a photography gallery at the online photography community website Flickr. Here is a little slideshow from my favorite photos at Flickr.
