Photography

Photography is something that I got exposed to in a very early. I remember I was 5 or 6 only when I first picked up my father’s old film camera, not to shoot but to play with.

There used to be a small old cabinet in my parents room where they had kept their useful things like important documents, colorful thread rolls in a Danish Butter Cookies Tin, and old photographs, “lots of photographs”.

That cabinet was kind of my playing area and the things in it were my toys. I loved to look through all the photographs that my father had taken during his stay in Germany in 70s. So that’s how I believe I was programmed to do photography in future.

My elder brother also has a major role in inspiring me to do photography. After my father, he was the only one in the family who carried on. Actually he was the first person to introduce me to the world of digital photography.

Like many people I also did photography in the film days for fun but I took it seriously back in 2005. I started with cellphone Nokia 6610i which had a 1.3 vga camera. For next few years I continued this hobby mostly with borrowed Point and Shoot cameras.

In 2013 my elder brother gifted me a Canon 600D with kit lens and since then, traveling and shooting is something that I can’t live without.

Whats in my Camera bag? Well I don’t have much in my arsenal. I have one Crop Sensor Canon 600D, a full frame Canon 6D with just two lenses; 50mm 1.8 and Samyang 14mm 2.8 and the most important equipment, Manfrotto’s Be Free tripod.
