My name is Abhijit Sarkar, I live in the United States. A software engineer by profession, I’ve been keenly interested in photography since middle school. I primarily shoot nature and landscape but recently I’m taking interest in portraits too. My images appeared in and have received recognition on CNN iReport, National Geographic Your Shot, BetterPhoto.com, 500px.com and ViewBug.com. I’m a guest author on Digital Photography School. In an era when we’re suffering from a visual overload (about 350 million photos are uploaded on Facebook everyday) and anyone with a camera is conducting a workshop, I believe you can still be noticed if you shoot for yourself and not to please others. Connect with your subject, develop a style and let it speak for you. “It’s not when you press the shutter, but why you press the shutter.” - Mary Ellen Mark.
