Welcome Saksham !! We sincerely hope you will enjoy your Journey with Gwalior Plus. Over to Saksham now:
I have always loved taking Photographs. I started Photographing objects when I ws 16 with my Digital Camera and later this hobby was developed into a hard core PASSION.
It all started accidentally when I was trying to capture Sunset from Gwalior Fort and suddenly my Friend said " You should not capture Sunset, else your future will be the same.. always setting down", I was so amazed by that and from that day I started capturing Sunsets as and when I got a chance. Gradually, I started taking pictures every now and then for everywhere I go and found this work really interesting. With time, I started Exploring Gwalior exclusively for photos and realized it has everything a photographer looks for in it. The monuments, people, streets, lifestyle, tradition and everything that Gwalior owns is just so beautiful to capture.
I use Nikon D3100 with three lenses usually i.e 18-55 mm, 50 mm and 70-300 mm. I think Photography is something that can bring "truth" out of the society, it is the best method to make people aware of the surroundings and current conditions. I am also into Short Film making, and have made two short films as of yet. Both on social causes, they were "LOST- A movie on mental pressure growing on youth leading to suicide" and "AMANAT- A movie on Crime Against Women".
I have been receiving great support from the local people, they encourage me to move forward. I would like to Thank Gwalior Plus for choosing me for this Blog writing, and I am really looking forward for a long term relationship with them.
