It has not been very long (Jan 1, 2007) that I have taken to photography in a more involved way. This is since I got my first camera - a digital SLR camera, and few lenses to go with it. So far, I am finding photo-taking a very relaxing and invigorating experience. The connection that a photographer forms with the subject may last only as long as the shutter speed to which the camera is set, but the impact is a lasting one. A moment seen, a moment felt, a moment captured, a moment frozen. Ah, how I wish I could spend loads of time with it! You can never have enough of it, I surmise.

My primary interest is in people. I like pictures that capture something lovely inside and/or outside of a person, or/and the remarkable that is there in everything that surrounds us. That should practically include everything. So, in general, my liking extends to all kinds of pictures. My only criterion for a good picture is that it has to evoke a delightful response(even if it is minor one) in the viewer. For this, it has to carry and convey something. And that something can be either or all of this: something pleasing, something interesting, something beautiful, something meaningful - a truth that is there, but perhaps not so obvious to our normal naked eye. Apart from that, for me, there are no general rules for photography. And, I really don't know how to go about it. So I try my luck. It is usually my friends and family members that I bug most. Ask them.

It is a pleasure seeing many wonderful entries in the different galleries out here. My experience here has been fabulous. This, I feel, is mainly because of the culture that prevails here, where almost every member is friendly and tries to support the other. There is a lot of photo-learning that happens in the process too, because you are surrounded by tremendous people and their valuable talents.

Love to all. ~Vikram~
