Pratibimb is my personal photoblog. Pratibimb means a reflection !! Images displayed on this photoblog are what caught my fancy and I captured with my camera. I hope you will enjoy the reflections.
I am a serious amateur photographer, and not yet composed with the intuitive eye of an artist. Hence, even if a few of my reflections resonate with your emotions, I think, I should continue clicking anticipating better and better reflections in future.
Photography takes the ordinary and brings out the extraordinary. The limitations in my photography, are in myself!
Ideally, with an understanding of natural light, one should be able to create images as the artist paints with the brush on the canvas! There is still a long way to go!
NOTE: Images displayed on this blog are for display purpose only. No commercial interest involved!
My favourite photographers :
"I leave aside the camera when the person I was going to photograph needs my help."...Reza

"For me a photograph is most successful when it doesn't answer all the questions, and it leaves something to be desired."...Greg
"For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to give a meaning to the world, one has to feel involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression."...Henri
