2012 in Pictures (Review)

It has been a extremely fulfilling year as far as photography is concerned. 2012 was the year I started looking at photography as a serious hobby and took the time out from my busy schedule and routine professional life to devote to this.

The year started with my first appearance for the MWS on the very first day of the year – 1st January 2012. It has been a wonderful journey on some these MWS outing, where I got to learn a lot from fellow photographers and came to know some wonderful people. Some of the street shoot have broaden the perspective of looking at the subject, how do you interpret them and how do you present them.

My posts like Solitary, Organised Chaos, Everyday Life, Bombay Diaries, Alone in a crowd, An evening on beach etc are example of such street shoots.

In June 2012, I had a wonderful time shooting some of the best places North Indian has to offer to travelers and photographers alike. Here are some of them : Mussoorie – the queen of hills, Haridwar – An experience, Free spirit, Jim Corbett – Travelogue.

Some of my favs from 2012 are : Speed thrills, Inspiration, In search of answers, Near and far, India, Hiding my treasureSunset, Maximum city, Life is a journey, Saara Aakash and nirvanatrails.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following you this past year, Hitesh…..you’ve got a real gift for capturing the personalities behind the faces you photograph…I can’t wait to see who you’ll reveal to us in 2013.
    Happy New Year!

    beautiful pictures…the colored hand, the haridwar pic, the mumbai pune expressway and the silhouettes are my favorite…and those pictures of the boats, is it really Bhimtaal, the Uttarakhand one? I live really close to that place. Infact i am going to visit Bhimtaal soon. I took a picture of those boats as well, nowhere close to this picture though. Hope to find many more interesting pictures here this year. 🙂

      Thanks for such a wonderful comment and your kind words.

      Yes thats from near Bhimtal in Uttarakhand, If I remember the name correctly its Tallital. You are from Uttarakhand ? Such a beautiful place it is.

        Bhimtaal is divided into two parts mallitaal and tallitaaal, malli means above and talli means talli in pahadi. Yes, i am from uttarakhand, not from bhimtaal though. And i’ll be in Bhimtaal in a matter of 2 weeks.I’ll try to get a picture like this during my stay there.

    These are all fabulous Hitesh! The street shot of the three girls is my favourite, as also the Haridwar landscape, the silhouette, the boats….all stunning! Good luck with your photography in the year ahead 🙂
