Finally, I have decided to start blogging and that is going to beÂ one of my key agenda for 2013. As usual, i will limit this blog to photography related articles, tutorials, workflows, reviews and tips.Â I will try to be regular as much as I can.Â Â To start with,Â i am going to pick my top 25 favorite clicks of 2012 and try to write few words on each of them.Â Going to be really tough task!!
Wish you all a very happy new year.
Love & Regards,
Here is my 25 favorite shots of 2012.Â Â Though my original theme for 2012 was Floral abstracts, i ended up doing more Floras & portraits.Â I will try to explore abstract world in 2013.Â 2012 was a quite satisfying year, I learned & practiced managing lights for portraits and continued my Flora work. Â Have a look, drop your comments, suggestions & feedback. Â Â Happy new year :)
