About Me - The Tainted Tripod

About Me

I am never unhappy when I am with my camera.

I am a self-taught photographer born and raised in Nepal, in the capital city of Kathmandu. Growing up in this beautiful part of the world, I always had a fascination with artistic and architecture side of things around me like temples, archaic buildings, monuments and nature. Late in my teen my love for photography grew when I started playing with long exposure feature of my camera. Photographing trails of light, clouds in motion or silky stream of flowing water using long exposure techniques and turning a simple composition into a form of art hooked me into photography.

By trait, I am an engineering graduate, but have a humongous passion for travel. Searching unexplored places to visit and finding unique perspective to photograph always appeals me. I moved to Black Hills area about  six years ago and ever since have been mesmerized by the beauty of its night sky which has inspired me in many ways. I feel the idea of using a consumer level camera to capture faintest of light that has travelled through thousands and thousands of year to reach us is truly remarkable.

I’m passionate about landscape and astrophotography. I enjoy and find pleasure in spending hours out in the dark photographing the milky way or shooting a long star trails. Besides, I’m also interested in photographing animals in nature and exploring macro photography.
