Where are you from?
I am from Thane city in Maharashtra state of India.
Why did you want to become a Photographer?
I have always liked photography as a medium to convey stories, concepts, illustrations in a aesthetic way by the use of technology. For me photography is a fusion of art and science.
Why did you choose this particular shot to be your favorite photograph?
I feel images are made first in your mind and the camera simply translates your imagination. This is a photograph of pollen grain dispersion from a grass blade. This grass is found all around the area in my region. For naked eyes the pollen grains appear to be like a white powder falling off from the seeds when you tap the grass blades. I first visualized this image in my mind and planned the technique. Used a off-camera flash to freeze the pollens mid air. I visited the forest area for two consecutive days to get the perfect picture which was technically perfect and more importantly, aesthetically pleasing.
