Karan Kauchhur's Perfect Storm
This week’s Fan photo of the week was taken by Karan Kauchhur using Sigma’s 10-20mm F4-5.6 DC HSM.
I shot this image on evening of August 10th. I checked the weather app, the sky was supposed to clear a bit after the scattered thunder storms all day and this sounded like perfect photo weather.
I drove to Sandy Hook beach because I could see some dramatic clouds still lingering around the horizon. Sun was to set at 8 pm, I reached this spot at around 7:45 pm. The cloud was almost over head and the natural light was very soft. I used the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle to capture the clouds along with the tide which was slowly creeping in. This beautiful light on lasted about 1 minute!
I got into photography in 2008 when I bought a Nikon D60. I have always been a nature lover and used to go out on trails and hikes.. I saw a lot of beautiful things, so the camera and shooting those scenes were a natural extension to my extra curricular activity. Over the last few years, I have had my images published for Florida English Journal, Fiat Blog, written a couple of articles on NJ’s Outdoor Life and had an exhibition for charity early this year. Currently I am working with an Art Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal to have my images displayed.
