Joshi Mukard’s Wildlife Photography and Other Updates
My unique approach to wildlife and bird photography with an ultra-wide-angle lens is attracting much interest worldwide. Friends from Middle-East and U.S and the whole of India are sending me personal messages to share the photos I took in Bandipur Tiger reserve recently. The way the news spreads of my exploits in wildlife photography may even land me a nomination for Nat Geo’s ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ award – fingers crossed.
So, friends, I do not want to keep you waiting any longer. Time has finally arrived to unveil my photographs. Here we go:
This is how I look before a shoot. Do I not look like an ace photographer?
I still haven’t figured what I was trying to do here
Bandipur Shots: Bison
I have to highlight even the Elephants!
This Elephant was so kind as to come very close to the road and pose for me
Hope you liked all the wild shots.
In the future, I plan to go for a Tiger safari to capture a Tiger in its habitat, but the problem is, if Elephants look like Buffaloes in my lens, Tigers may not even be visible in the photo. I may have to sit in front of its mouth to take a pic which should be a mouth-watering prospect for a tiger.
Well, my life has changed drastically and dramatically from last week. I was a guy who had nothing else to do in life other than going to work, play football, eat and sleep, and then, one day, the wife landed a job!!
She finally cracked an interview after several years of trying. Ever since (from last week) she took up the job, I wake up at 6 in the morning, get my daughter ready for school, take her to the school van pick up point only to realize the school van has already left, set off a chase on my bike with my daughter urging “faster, papa, faster ”, finally overtake the van, see her off, come back home, iron my clothes and my wife’s, drop my wife in her office, and go to my office.
Evening I go pick up my wife, go home, pick up my daughter from her daycare, read her teacher’s notes in the school diary, do her homework (she hates it and I always end up doing her homework myself but this has helped me improve my handwriting), watch Chotta Bheem till midnight (hey, Chotta Beem has teamed up with Chotta Hanuman. Exciting!), sleep, and the next day the same story continues, and weekends I do babysitting as my wife goes to work on weekends as well.

Ultra-wide angle lens is a tricky lens to use for wildlife photography. Don’t you have any zoom lens? 200m or plus?
No, I don’t have a zoom lens. But I’m not really interested in wild life photography. I’m more into landscapes and portraits and candids.
ha ha ha 😀
Very Good Keep it up da ……
He he, can’t stop laughing after reading your. I admire the fact that you take all the struggle so lighthearted, and keep your spirits.
In this world, except death and major illness, you can take everything else lightheartedly. I don’t understand why many people couldn’t do that. Thanks for reading, Abhra.
Loved the last part :D!
Taking everything lightheartedly is the happiest and the most creative ways to deal with it 🙂
Yes, indeed. Thanks for reading Nivedita
