BIOGRAPHY
I am a linguist (MA in linguistics ) and BA in photography, but my career is focused on the former. On graduation from the second major, I found that the rigid academic syllabuses are too unyielding to mold a guy into a true competent photographer, so along with my main line of work, I spend a considerable portion of my time studying photography in post-graduation phase, ranging from totally technical stuff to the purely artistic facade. Landscape photography is my favorite although I have had a crack at photojournalism and portraiture which I have never been able to bear myself to like very much. Always puzzled by the 'guidelines' and ' rules' thrown at photography students, I found that the truth must be sought somewhere other than the photography books and pamphlets chiefly prescriptive in nature. I set out to seek the descriptive principles to tell me why human being is attracted to an image or disapprove of another. I got drawn into psychological principles of perception describing in detail the human's perceptive behavior, approach, and attitude the realm of which is of course much more extensive than merely focusing on visual perception but the studying of which gives a truly profound insight into why the guidelines and rules have surfaced in the first place, so I recommend the guys out there to save time by directly studying Gestalt psychology of perceptual organization to fully grasp the reason where the so-called rules have stemmed from in actuality.

The day begins with glory but we often miss it. I took this shot, trekking toward Kolakchal mountain resort. I was captivated by the complementary contrast of orange against blue in the sky and the reflection on the snow. It was a difficult feat as the shadows were in jeopardy of being lost all together if metering were wrong. I set the camera on Av, scanned the exposure value of several points and found the best average point. I framed the sun around that gate to create gravity and balance to transfer visual importance from the reflection to the sun.
