Title:     Patrolling Queen 
   
Goal:     This is a habitat shot of Bengal Tiger and my first exposure to this magnificent animal at Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve, Rajasthan. Bengal Tiger being illusive by nature because of it's instinct and body colour are always at it's charm when found in front of lens. They are solitary, shy and most powerful cat in the animal kingdom. My whole objective was to capture the animal with it's mysticism and dominance as a powerful ambient portrait. 
 
Equipment/Source:      Nikon D7200, Nikon 24-120mm, f:4, S: 1/320s, ISO: 1100, F:85mm
 
Technique:    Handheld from Safari vehicle.

Processing:    
Adjusted shadow and highlights, contrast and cropped slightly to maintain balance between the subject and ambiance.

I always liked photography since childhood but the curiosity turned into passion during 2011-12, when I had my first DSLR. I went through the photography course at National Academy of Photography, Kolkata, India during 2012. Then started participating in National and International salons and competitions from 2013. I was active participant till 2016 and by that time completed EFIAP with more than 1700 international acceptance and 159 awards from across 56 countries through salon participation. My works were also recognised at 2014 Monochrome award, 2015 Sony World Photography Award as Commendable one and during 2017 Olympus International photography competition.

My area of core competence were always people and fine art photography. I developed a liking towards Nature and wildlife photography when for the first time I had a chance to visit Kaziranga, the world heritage sanctuary in eastern India. Last 3 years I have mostly focused on wildlife and visited Indian forests and Africa several times. I am at 52 now and by profession in sales and marketing job promoting organic concepts of agriculture in India.
