His views on photography

Photography for me is to capture decisive moments. The most important part as a photographer is to respect your subjects and the ambience. You are not going to get good photo every time you shoot. I try exploring things which is new and unique. The camera is my constant companion wherever I go. I believe, if you are in a habit of taking photograph everyday then it will become a reflex action and your mind will instruct when to click and what to click. I think one has to be the true critic of his own photos. I prefer to review my own photo repeatedly on a regular basis to develop photographic sense. Reading various photography magazines has become my habit to get updated with the new technology invented every day in the photographic field.
