  • Learning from Johannes Vermeer - Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch painter. Not too famous, painted very few works and never traveled the world. With such a few paintings, he was an almost obscure painter until some famous names gave him his due regards. For photographers, his paintings can also be an inspiration and a source of learning.  
  • Minimalism in Photography - KISS… Keep It Simple, Stupid! A girl-friend had once told this to me. Quite a famous line and I don’t even know where it originated initially. Little did I know that after so many years, this will become the opening line of this article. Keeping the compositions simple is one of the easiest ways to […]
  • Star Trails - Few weeks back, I was at Maini’s Hill Cottages, NataDol with a friend. Nice and cool night with no moon in sight. Once the sky was almost dark, we planned on capturing some night shots of the cottages itself. Switched on all the lights and went out to the far end of the driveway… tripod […]

My articles are mostly my thoughts related to photography. They are greatly influenced by how I visualize images and photograph them. My writings are also based on what photographers usually ask me or what visitors to this site want me to write about. English is not my first language or mother-tongue but I write articles in this language so as to reach out to more and more people.
