  • Stuff Happens…. Anecdotes from Night Photography - Few days back, one of my readers pointed out that apart from the basics involved in capturing night landscapes, star trails, milky way, etc, I should also write about the challenges and common mistakes.

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.

For me, photography is a medium of expression. A photographer is always a student and so am I. Everyday, I am learning new things, seeing the world in a different way. I will be happy to help anyone who wants to join me in this wonderful quest.


Dr. Shivam Maini
This is me. I am a photographer and a photography coach. I love creating photographs using whatever camera I can lay my hands on, and not necessarily an expensive one. Discussions related to photography always excite me.

Photography has been a love affair for me which has kept touching my life every now and then. I have started writing recently. If you like my articles, do keep checking back from time to time. If you want me to focus on any specific topic which I have not yet covered, get in touch with me. I take time out to read each and every message that reaches me.

This is my profile on LinkedIn – Dr. Shivam Maini (LinkedIn).
