Hi, Thanks for visiting my web page here. I am presently working in DRDO, India. Photography is something I always liked it from my childhood apart from painting and sketching. But, never had opportunity to take pictures seriously as SLR cameras are sooo expensive in India in those days. I bought, in 2004 when i was germany F80, and a nikon F90 in 2006 and used it for a while. But, ooh, then was a student, could not spend a lot on films. Slide films are too expensive. Cannt make mistakes with it. Thats tough for a beginner. I bought Nikon D80 in April 2008 when i was in UK. Now, looks fine as of now. Still find some constraints with the lens I have. :( Need to spend some money on good lenses in future. I request you to comment on the pictures, galleries and portfolios. I am posting so that I can improve my Skills. I learnt a lot from the comments and wish to learn more. I am more happy to see your the comments then the ratings. Photography vs Photoshop My philosophy of Photography is to present the picture the way I see it through the View-Finder. I relate Photography as a form of art to present realism. I use Photoshop only for framing my pictures. I sometimes adjust the images for contrast, brightness and a bit of saturation to balance the digital image signal levels. My Rating of Pictures: when rating a picture, I tend to rate if I feel picture is minimum 5/5. Otherwise I just leave a comment or skip those without rating. So, no hard feeling, I am not the guy who rated your picture low. ok. I just want to learn Photography for Life as there is so much of beauty around to capture n store. :) and one can never be complacent. Thanks for your attention.
