Vijay Kumar and his Passion about Photography
I am a commerce graduate and working for a shipping company in Dubai. I’m a hobbyist photographer as well.
About my photography journey:
It’s just from last 3 years when I bought my first DSLR I have been so fanatic about this wonderful art of photography. At that time I didn’t knew what a DX or FX gear was. I just went for the best DSLR that I could afford at that time and am very happy to have gone for NIKON D5200 It’s a marvellous gear to start off. For me nothing is cheap or low graded as long as you learn to use it to its full potential and get the best out of it. Whatever small knowledge I have gained on this vast subject has all been from web/internet/tutorials and still learning. And am convinced it’s not all about just reading the web or watching tutorials or attending any course. It’s all about going out on the field and trying your shots and experimenting with your gear.
My experiments and my models
At home my role model is my wife who has always encouraged me and of course my 15 months daughter who sometimes get fed up and covers her face J when I approach her with my gear.
What I look at when I click:
I respect the basics like composition, rule of thirds, Framing, sharpness, etc. etc. and am still a novice but I absolutely don’t mind breaking the rules sometimes as it’s all about the MOMENT as long you have captured it and that captured image, story-tells by itself.
My dream Camera:
I have been dreaming of owning a FX Nikon D750 ever since I heard about its launch and its specs. After a long wait I managed to add D750 to my Kit couple of months back. Haven’t got much chance to experiment with it though.

DX Lens : Nikkor 35mm F1.8, Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4, Sigma 50-150mm F2.8,
