I am often asked ‘what’s your favorite destination?’
I have always been pondering over this and I usually think there is no such favorite and I always like the place I am visiting next. How ever in the last couple of years, I am closing towards an answer to this question. To really understand how the same sun can paint different colors in the sky one has to really travel places.
Adobe in association with Toehold will be hosting a free webinar “Digital Post Processing Demystified”. I will be one of the two speakers on this webinar discussing the importance of Post processing in the digital workflow of a photographer.

Deeply engrossed in reviewing photos in my camera, I am interrupted by a beeping alarm from the dive computer warning me of low air in the tank. I raise my head to find an audience gathered – a shoal of bold, beautiful and curious Silver Sweetlips, some peeping at me, and some at my camera.
In 2013, we at TOEHOLD witnessed a lot of love and companionship displayed by some of our favorite animals. Lions mating, Brown-bears play-fighting, Tigers courting, Leopards on top of each other, Macaws shouting of togetherness and many more. How ever my moment of the year when it comes to the some spectacular action I witnessed was with these two Polar Bears who were a part of my July 2013 Arctic expedition.
Some birds pair for life and the macaws are renowned for their togetherness. The red and green macaws are remarkable birds and have given me great results in the past. On the famed TOEHOLD Pantanal tour: http://toehold.in/phototours/2014/pantanal-jaguar-photography-expedition-august.php we spend close to three mornings looking out for these beauties and like in the past has always given us great satisfaction photographically. We have started filling spots for this exclusive group that will look out for jaguars, anteaters and some of south America’s remarkable avian super stars.
It was a long day after some deep dives around the Havelock and Neil island in the Andamans. Deep dives and some with currents mean exhaustion and especially with an underwater camera setup like mine it is hardly fun and a lot of pain even though the diving industry calls these as Fun-Dives.
During the initial years, I visited Ranganathittu a lot as I lived in Mysore and also was a great starter destination to learn and make the initial mistakes as a Photographer. The last weekend, I hosted TOEHOLD’s Nature Photography Masterclass in Ranganathittu.
