When I began this blog, I did it so just with the intent of teaching the masses. I did it purely out of passion. And now, the hardwork has been paid off yet again with a recognition. Baggout has selected “ShutterTux” amongst the “Top 10 Photography Blogs in India”.
It’s a moment of pride. A motivation to continue doing the good work I do. This award goes to all my faithful readers. Thank you for the unwavering support all along the way. Many thanks to the Baggout team for the honour.
It’s three years! A grand three years in my 365 Project. Never imagined, I would reach so far. It has been a truly magnificent journey, trying to produce a unique photograph each day. What brings further joy to me is, if one perseveres, producing a photograph every day is indeed possible. As I look back, I can see how I am improving as a photographer.
2015 will be an awesome year. I will continue the 365 Project. Thank you for the strong support & hope it continues in 2015. Will work more hard and produce photographs, unimagined and unexplored previously!
Follow my 365 Project
I did it, I successfully & honestly completed the 365 Project yet again for the second year on the trot. For those unaware, I had successfully completed 365 Project in my debut year(2012) & then resumed it in coming year 2013. Now as 2013 is done & dusted, so is my 365 Project for the year 2013.
Compared to 2012, 2013 – 365 Project went really smooth. Yes, there were days of mediocre photographs but thankfully they were few. Keeping the camera along always has helped me get good photographs & there have been days when I’ve been spoil for choice as to which one to upload. Its a problem of plenty & good to have. I’m grateful to all those souls who patiently waited for their meal as I was taking the food photograph at the restaurant, to the people who gave me their best as they faced the camera for my portrait, to those who supported me & my project even in difficult times. I further feel proud to know that I’ve inspired people to take up the 365 Project. There is no bigger joy than this. It keeps me going!
Surely, 2014 will present challenges of its own. Life is only going to get busier as responsibilities increase for me. However, once again I’ve begun with my 365 Project for the year 2014. Let’s see how I fare this time. Just a photo each day – simple as it sounds but having completed two years(and taken an oath not to repeat same photographs) will definitely make the project challenging. It would be great to have your support this time too. The place remains the same. Thank you.
I renewed my subscription of Better Photography(BP) magazine yesterday & the BP team member instantly handed me the copy of this month. I placed the copy in my bag & went through my day. In evening as I was waiting for my turn at the dentist, I pulled out the magazine & began flipping. To my uttermost surprise, it had a picture from me in the critique section of the magazine.
This picture was taken by me in
2009 2011 with my compact camera Canon Powershot SX100 IS. I had mailed it to BP somewhere in 2010 May 2011 & it got published in October 2013. It bought a good long smile across my lips. As they say, “better late than never”. If you’ve bought the magazine this month, do check out page no.102 for my photograph in full glory.
