I am connected with pictorial photography 1977 and I have a definite bias to add human being as a subject in most of my pictures. Though I started off with Film as a medium for photography, I have gone fully Digital for Imaging . Between 1980 and 1990 I was involved in Salon participation and had some moderate success in bagging a Silver Plaque, a couple of Certificates of Merit and Honourable Mentions in the Indian Photographic Salons. After 1990, I could only do a bit of travel photography mainly due to time constraints. Higher responsibilities in the workplace compelled me to abstain from this hobby, I practically had no choice.
Again from 2005 June , I resumed photography . I am a Life Member of Photographic Association of Bengal (PAB) and from 2nd February, 2014 I have been unanimously elected as the Hony.General Secretary of PAB. I shoot mainly for my Web Gallery at Pbase.com. I have gone almost whole time into photography . Alongwith a few of my associates, I have founded a Photography Forum (Photos2Net.com) which has restricted membership only through referrals and it is growing day by day. It has members from many countries apart from India.
My pictures have been used commercially for Advertisements and Calenders.
I put down my thoughts and opinion on photography in my blog at http://subsen2000ster.blogspot.com and you are welcome to pitch in and leave your comments at my blog.
My photo gears are simple and functional for my kind of photography. I use a Canon DSLR with assorted lenses of Canon and Tamron. Manfrotto is my Camera support system and LowePro, my camera carrying bags.
