About Me
An Electronics engineer on weekdays, amateur photographer/tinkerer/experimenter on weekends. I started out with an Olympus point and shoot , and have worked my way up to a Canon 7D via a 1000D,over the years.


Taking pictures of something the human eye normally cannot see is what gets me most excited ( read- high speed water balloon bursting/dragonflies/birds mid flight/long exposures of a night sky- things like that) , although the occasional boring landscape (and the more frequent) perched bird/ exotic bug too can keep me happy !

I put this website together a while ago, to document my hobby circuit building:  Watch the laser projector in action here [ my undergrad ECE project: ] www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBnmHe6SG4c
The projector was also featured on hackaday.com ( yay!) hackaday.com/2008/09/23/laser-led-pov-projector/
