About

I, Sravan Kumar A, a hobbyist nature photographer like many, shoot in leisure.

My first preference is always watching Nature than capturing through lens. The passion of watching Nature had started in my childhood when I used to travel to new places through forests, rivers, mountains and valleys. I always preferred sitting next to a window with a paper and pen noting down all the names of rivers the train passed through and counting the tunnels in-between. I used to ask my first mentor, my mother, the name of each bird I saw.

Learning

My serious nature photography journey has begun after I joined in INDIA NATURE WATCH (in short, popularly known as INW) in 2009. I learnt a lot in INW over years about Nature, Nature Photography, Wildlife, National Parks, Importance of understanding the subject, Light, Equipment, Post Processing etc with fellow members guidance and suggestions.

Challenge

The toughest part of Photography to me is understanding the Color. I always have an open question, which one is correct, “Shooting the subject in the lighting at that instance or getting the actual colors of the subject irrespective of the lighting”.

I Believe

“Work should give an impression about the person than the person giving an impression on the work”. Hence I never use my photo in my profile, the same here too.

Camera Gear

I bought my first film camera in 1997 and never clicked even a single photo with it ironically. I started taking photos after I bought my second camera, a Samsung film camera in 2004. Started Nature Photography only after I purchased the third camera Nikon Coolpix S10 in 2007. Had the first DSLR when my Wife gifted me a Nikon D90 and two lenses, Nikon 18-105mm VR and Nikon 70-300mm VR in 2010. My major investment was in October 2012 for Nikon D800E, my first Fullframe DSLR.
