Kamalesh Das is a school teacher. He is 29 years old, who got his first camera in 2007. It was a point and shoot digital camera from Kodak. However when he first took few shots in his friend’s DSLR, he started to think seriously about photography. Then the very next year he took his first DSLR Nikon D40. Though he start taking Photographs on his vacation time but he gave serious attention to it. He realized there are many opportunities to photograph around, even in his bedroom. Till today he uses to see good photos and recharge his energy for good work. Every click in his shutter is new for him, as his past experience gets challenge over there. So He always tries to think different to get new.
