A photograph is not a piece of paper that reflects a moment. It is a form of art that transforms an ordinary moment into an extraordinary one. Photography to me is an effort to freeze an incredible moment that I see with my naked eye. Nature’s play of light stuns us with some picturesque moments that you want to enjoy forever.
Going with the Chinese proverb “A picture is worth thousand words” I use my photographs as a means of communication. The language of Photography can depict a gamut of human emotions the pains, struggles, joys and beauty.
I not only freeze my vision but also my emotion in my pictures. Every time I go through my pictures I feel the same joy and excitement that I experienced while capturing it. Photography helps me to share my joy and happiness with the rest of the world.
I would like to share, what my master used to say “LOOK FOR PROPER LIGHT, SEARCH FOR THE SUBJECT, PICTURE WILL BE YOURS”.
Photography can record the marvellous moments of light and shadow and freeze the emotional exchange between people and nature.
