I will try to answer this question as honestly as I can.
I have always loved photography right from my childhood, but over the last two years, I have connected with my camera like never before. I used to use my father’s film camera during my childhood, then got an advanced point and shoot in 2007 (which was stolen later) and then a DSLR in 2010, but never used it a lot due to work or some other project I was so occupied with. But lately, my camera (or cameras) have become a medium for me to hide behind and communicate to the world in a totally different way.
Over the last two years, I have traveled and taken my camera to places all over the country and beyond. For Leh in the north to Rajasthan and Pune in the west, to Sikkim in the east and to numerous other places near Delhi. Apart from these travels, I have taken my camera out on the streets of Delhi and captured some candid street shots. After a lot of gear hopping which resulted in two new cameras and another set of expensive lenses to go along, I am getting the feeling that I am just getting started in a new way of communicating – via my photographs.
Looking ahead, I am not sure whether this is just a phase or this is something that will last for long. Well, time will tell. In this blog, I aim to write less and try to say more through my photographs. I will leave you with a quote below –
