Bhaskar is an amateur photographer , works in a Biotech company at Ahmedabad. During his childhood He used to play around with his dad’s Yashica SLR camera taking pictures. There had been an exhibition of photographs by students in his university where he contributed few snaps taken by him. All of them fetched him good amount of praise. That was when he first realized that he can be better at it. Later he started participating in different competitions, and received few laurels. That’s how he got interest in the art of photography. Though he experimenst with almost all kinds of photography , what he is interested in now is the landscape…pictures without people. He also love shooting panorama, still life, candid pictures, sunsets, night shots.
The camera that he rely most is my Canon PowerShot S3 IS. Among software, The most challenging aspect of photography for him is to shoot an image precisely as visualized before and the exact effect is reflected in the photograph. The best part of photography is looking at simple things in a different way through the lens.. It gives a chance of revisiting the experience that you had while being behind the camera.
