Almost a decade ago, I went on a trip to Nainital with my colleagues. One of my colleagues’ fiance, Mayuk Roy, was carrying a Nikon DSLR with him. While we were strolling through the roads and by-lanes of Nainital, trekking through hills, munching at various food joints, and of course, boating on Naini Lake, Mayuk kept his camera's shutter busy. He would stop at a spot take a shot; have look at it; fiddle with few buttons on camera and another take another shot. And this continued until he was contended with result. Oblivious to the nitty-gritties of photography, I was a bit irked because it paralyzed our pace when moving from one spot to another.
A week after returning home, he shared the Picasa link to the photos that he took during our outing. I was amazed; stunned upon seeing the photos and learning what one can do with a camera. I loved how one could share his/her perspective of seeing things that are around. It fueled the contemplation of buying a DSLR camera in me. After few weeks of research (Googling and visiting camera shops), I zeroed in on a Canon 1000D. It was my turn to be "Mayuk" in next outing.
During nascent years of my passion, I was quite active and would click photographs often. However, this faded away with the passage of time.
It was August 2017, when a thunderbolt by the name of ‘Gorky M’ struck me while browsing YouTube and reignited my passion for photography. In the next few months, I graduated to a Full Frame DSLR - Canon 6D Mark II. The camera’s superb low light performance, a fully articulating touch screen, 45 cross-type focus points and a high FPS drew me to purchasing this camera.
Since then, I’ve taken it for a few outings and shot many pictures at home too. Here are my 5 Frames from Canon 6D Mark II.
Thanks for reading & spending time going through my work. In future if I get to write blogs, this attempt is going to be foundation stone and will make it to my story of "How I started writing blogs".
