Speaking on the occasion, the host – Shiv Gandhi said “ I am extremely thrilled with the fabulous response we have received at the launch of ‘Scapes of India’. These pictures you see today are a result of more than two years of my hardwork and dedication. Conservation of nature and wildlife are two aspects that are close to my heart. I have taken immense effort to bring out these pictures in a way they actually played out in my mind when I was clicking them. These pictures have very minimal post production work to ensure the natural flavor is intact. I invite all photo enthusiasts around Bangalore to visit the exhibition in the coming days and have a look at my work”

On the sidelines of the launch a panel discussion titled “The Perspective Changer – Adding Scale to Scapes” was moderated by Sameera Fernandes, Greener Steps.

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 photography brings about a stronger emphasis on nature’s aesthetic value as he gives life to the images utilizing nature’s lights, communicating to us the mysterious, awe-inspiring hidden wonders and facts of the nature.

The collection at ‘SCAPES OF INDIA’ will be available for patrons in 3 sizes -12x18, 16x24, 20x30 inch sizes.
