About the Author
Mr. Annechira Shiva
Popularly known as Shiva Gandhi is a professional photographer from Bangalore. He grew up with sketches and painting in his tender age. His obsession with art grew tremendously and he nourished it into a passionate hobby during his college times with the help of camera rolls. After his graduation in electronics Engineering, he went on to work as a photojournalist and editor with America Online for 8 years.
The intense desire as an artist deep within him triggered to an extent that he decided to take up photography as his profession, independently. Shiva has depicted the lifestyle of various personalities including actors, models, dancers, writers, musicians, politicians, businessmen and sports personalities through editorial and commercial assignments. His works were appreciated and awarded the “Best Lifestyle Award” in the year 2016.
Travel and Nature Photography is not as easy as ‘just Click’, says Shiva. The sketch/framework of the image created in his mind, which then is slowly and carefully nurtured into series of thoughts linking it to its heritage, history, present and to its timeless beauty. These deep compositions in his mind create an imaginary picturesque of the scene. He transfers this imaginary picture into his camera. This requires perfect lighting knowledge, combination of various angles, camera adjustments, and indeed lots of patience and perseverance.
His mind does not compromise, till it is satisfied when it compares the imaginary image to the captured one. Shiva does not favour retouching the images / interference of too much photoshop with the captured image. His photography not only invokes strong feelings within us, but transports us to that very scene/place. Shiva believes original and natural is priceless.
His current passion is to pay tribute to world renowned painting into photographic images without the use of any photographic strobe lights. He has mastered the technique of creating ainting like images by using primitive lighting methods. He spends considerable amount of time in understanding and experimenting various methods to create unique images. As a creative photographer, his way of training has got him recognition as a master of photography for studio lighting and compositions
Equipments: He handles sophisticated cameras like Mamia, Hasselbald, Canon, Nikon, Arri Alexa, Epic and Sony with ease . He gives life to his Images through his Artistic mind frame and acquired technical knowledge.
Future Works: His unique piece of work is a feast to the eyes of the art and nature lovers to dote over, and calmness to the soul within. While his awesome gallery is stunning to behold, it is definitely worth a visit. His maiden Exhibition is based on Nature’s SCAPES. His other series of Exhibitions are based on Heritage, Tribute to Painters [Raja Ravi Varma, John William Godward], Wildlife, and more to come.
