In conversation with us, Jiban Mazumdar speaks at length about the photographer within him and his passion for photography.
TSM: When did the photographer's bug bite you?
Jiban: Well can't say exactly. It started suddenly.
TSM: What was the first photograph you clicked?
Jiban: I can't recall the exact subject as of now, however, as far as I can remember it must have been a flower.
TSM: What is your favourite subject?
Jiban: Sunset. I can spend the whole evening watching and clicking sunset.
TSM: Who have/has been your inspiration/inspirations.
Jiban: To be very honest no one. But I loved the story of Alan McFadyen who spent 6 years to get the picture of the kingfisher touching water vertically.
TSM: What's your process of composing and framing a shot?
Jiban: Technically I'm not at all sound so I shot what my eye find beautiful.
TSM: One change that you would like to bring to your photography skill?
Jiban: There are many changes needed actually. I have much more things to learn.
TSM: Any message for The Story Mug readers?
Jiban: Earlier I used to think for good photography a good device is needed. To some extent it's true but not every time. I won Gold Medal and Bronze Medal on a national level platform in the open category with a 13mp mobile camera. So just keep clicking may be out of 1000 one will be perfect and that will change everything.
