His techniques and skills involve capturing multiple exposures of the same scene as correct as possible in the camera and blending them to achieve the perfect dynamic range of light.
He likes to edit his photographs into monochrome to give an extra dimension to the story. They are not really Black and white images and they have received various toning treatment while converting them into monochrome using editing programs. He is really particular and passionate about making his photographs look unique and vibrant. He shoots all his photographs in RAW, which is really necessory to achieve better results while editing the photographs into monochrome. He uses Full-frame Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras to shoot citiscapes and architecture using a sturdy tripod and a cable release to make sure the images are sharp and with minimum distortion. A sturdy tripod can always help to compose the frame better and to avoid optical distortions. Many of his photographs are HDRs, and long exposures which also needs a good tripod and a cable release. He uses very good quality Neutral Density filters to shoot long exposures when the scene includes moving clouds or water. Good quality ND filters with 6 to 10 stops can add a lot of drama into the actual scene if used properly.
