Debashis Paul - "The Man Behind Camera"

Welcome to my Photography world !! My name is Debashis Paul. People love to call me Deba, pauld, dpaul or paul :)
I am Fourth generation full blooded Indian. Born in 1982 at Kolkata ,"the City of Joy", Eastern India. Professionally Engineer and by interest a Photographer. Living in Atlanta , Georgia - USA .

Photography is my passion not hobby and I am very pleased to share that passion with you. Here I want to show how I see the world through my eyes.I am not pro photographer and I am still learning and teaching myself photography. I am in full time employment in career and enjoy my spare time in photography.
Interested mainly in Nature Photography but not inclined to specific type and I would like to generalize myself as Creative Photographer/Artist.
So, that's me ! Looking forward to hear from you .... Until then enjoy ...

Unlike typical "Pro" photographer I shoot whatever I like and anything that sounds interesting to me.I love to break the conventional approach and shoot whatever my inner voice tells me and enjoy it without wondering what category it might fit in. This way I keep balance in any type of photo shooting and keep me versatile.

As I travelled many places around the world I had opportunity to meet different people, cultures which inspire and constantly improve my personal and professional development specially when my perspective to see world in different way. Photography is charming to me because it challenges both my creative side and my technical aspects. It gives the opportunity to explore new places , experiences them, remember them.

I became the person I am today..strong, diverse, driven, passionate and always ready to deliver great results. This is also where I started to develop my photographic style and vision though I believe its never ending journey. I have a passion for people and getting the very best from any given situation.
                                ++++++++ Idealogy/Inspiration ++++++++

                Photography is not something photographer born with. The different way of seeing the world nurtures him to mature enough and proof as photographer. This is my personal perspective and people might have different opinion. I am not born as photographer but lot of travel opportunity across the world makes me feel to see my surroundings and mother nature in a different way. This leads me passionate enough and tend to be as photographer.

            We often talk about cameras, lenses and lighting but rarely do we talk about what’s behind them–your eye. Not the organ, no, the part of your mind that actually helps you see the world and share it with others. This is what inspires you to capture the world with your lens, what drives you. To me, photography in a person showing how they see their world and capturing moments in time. A person’s “photographic eye” is something that is developed over time with training and continous self development. For photographers every day is new day, new moments, new situation, new environment and new challenges and it is never ending loop that this photo is the great one ever taken.

                I get inspiration in photography from legendary artist like Ansel Adams, Elliot Porter, Monty Zucker to versatile modern photographers like Bryan Peterson, Trey Ratcliff, Clay Blackmore, Samuel Bitton, Michel Rajkovic, Jack Brauer to highly successful Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle & obviously other masters.

                Photography isn't my job and I feel this rejuvenate me after getting away from the boredom of day to day life. It provides an outlet for me to create something and challenge myself on my own terms. Craving for a good shot is frustrating and rewarding all at the same time.
                                ++++++++ Old Days ++++++++

Photography is something I fell in love with in mid 2006 during vacation to Switzerland and was awestruck by the beauty of GOD's Creation which spurred me to own a good camera and learn how to use it. I've enjoyed everything to do with photography ever since and I'm always trying to learn new things and improve.

As I said it was not planned journey with set of gadgets and my first photography was in 3x optical zoom Samsung point and shoot camera in very early age of DSLR popularity. My next one was Fuji F6500d Bridge Camera and finally Nikon D300s with couple of lenses. I am planning to switch to Full SLR version pretty soon. I still remember of having a handful collections of Webshots photographs with me in college days so I had the interest as always.
