For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.People spot a big black lens, and they worry about what they're doing, or how their hair looks. Nobody see the person holding the camera.As an alternative I picked up my first camera, became a time machine allowing me to capture the best and most unforgettable moments of my life. Every time I walk out the door, I'm presented with opportunities and nearly overwhelmed by the possibilities. 
I am able to capture all that nature offers, the steaming energy of an adolescent community, culture, the serene excitement of  days.
Photograph moves me due how images are concrete, yet fluid. Some images hold the past by bringing a person back to a certain feeling. While some images offer glimpses of the future by re-presenting what cannot be perceived except by commanding stillness. A moment presented and captured can be represented in a variety of ways. It depends on how it's framed, focused, on the lighting, on the f-stop, the aperture, etc....Using such elements one can bring a person back to a certain feeling they had at a moment and bring them forward by presenting them something they've never seen in themselves or others before. I strive to find beauty in the things most eyes sweep over and capture human moments that may not seem exceptional, those tend to be the ones we never want to forget.The act of photography itself is an attempt at control, though only to a certain extent. We all have a choice in how we perceive and react to experiences, photography has asked me to stop, breathe and assess. My time machine inspires me to value the choice we all have to make a conscious decision regarding what I want to sense and how I want to respond. A picture speaks volumes. Photographs tell secrets and stories and yet without utterance or written word one photo can have a million different meanings to every individual.A photograph can be a response and a representation.Photography has.My passion for Photography is what makes me the perfect student for F.I.T/Parsons. Someone once told me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and finding through the lens is my path in life.Photography is my favorite hobby.The aim of indulging such an interest is sheer pleasure or relaxation.It refreshes the mind and provides a welcome change from such dull and dreary routine of daily life.I visited a few good libraries and read articles and magazines on the subject of photography.Photography is quite expensive pastime and to be a good photographer on needs a lot of training and guidance.So i attended a few short courses to pursue my hobby.I also did an internship with a reputed photographer.To be a good photographer i have to take all aspects into consideration. I have to look from all directions to capture a picture. 
I have to decide which direction will be the best.Color combination is also a very important factor.While taking pictures of animals or birds a photographer has to wait for hours it needs lots of patience. When i was snapping photos with my senior photographer in a jungle i waited more than two hours to catch animals in my camera.Finally i took very nice photographs of animals and nature.It was an amazing experience for me.In recent times there are very advanced cameras are available in the shops,its lenses are also very useful.With the help of the lenses one can capture photos even if from the far distance. There are some universities who started special course on photography.People are looking as a career to this subject.I think the best p
hotograph i ever took was the one in which my sister stood with her hands raised and her palms joined like a cup.The moon is far in the background exactly over the raised palms.It seems as if she is holding the moon in the palm of her hands. Anyone who sees this photograph raves about it.
When my friends invited me for parties or weddings i took my camera along.If we happened to go for treks or hikes i was there,ever ready with my inevitable camera.I am particularly interested in capturing landscapes,especially during twilight. I then began experimenting with light and shadows,I would place a bowl of flowers on the table with a candle to illuminate it from one side.Then I would switch the lights off and click away from various angles with the flash of camera snapping off and on.Photography has made my senses keen and my imagination sharp.I have developed a wonderful aesthetic sense.I have my albums of all these photographs.And when i really nothing to do i just leaf through the photo albums and a whole gamut of interesting reminiscences rush through my mi
