Award Winner | Photo of the Day | May 09, 2012
This was a shot taken while I was experimenting with the built in flash. I created a DIY setup to bounce off the built in flash and take the photo. After a lot of trial and error, this one seemed a bit pleasing ! I couldn’t find a proper subject to test my DIY flash setup until I saw this box of chocolate on my table. I’ve seen many product shoots of chocolates…. and in this one I really wanted to try something different. And at this moment the quote “Nine out of ten people like chocolate. The tenth person always lies” by John Q Tullius came to my mind !

Swaroop Singha Roy – A shutter bug from Kolkata with a knack for music and wildlife. A funny, happy go lucky boy who loves to Love the beautiful creations of nature. The innocent animals have a special place in his heart. Since his childhood, Swaroop had this habit (maybe a bad habit) of snatching a camera from his dad and trying to figure out which button makes the “Snap” sound! Then, the day finally came when he got his first camera – yes, it was a film-roll one, and that was the day he realized he needs to do something big with this. Now, armed with his digital photographic stuff, he loves to go around the city, village or anywhere in this big beautiful world and shoot at sight. Photographing Animals is what he likes the most. Photography to him is a means of expressing his thoughts
