A software engineer by profession, Raviprakash’s passion was born because of the plethora of subjects in his immediate surroundings, which inspired him to take up macro photography. He is greatly inspired by the unique vision of nature photographer Ganesh H Shankar. He won the Amphibians and Reptiles category in the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 contest.
“The most outstanding subjects may be slithering in your backyard. Inspiration is always all around.”
One day, I discovered a Green Vine Snake in my garden. With the prior knowledge that they spend a considerable amount of time in a single place, I shot a few pictures from different angles. The snake wasn’t bothered by my slow and calculated movements. However, I was keen on capturing the reptile’s yellow jewelled eyes, for which I looked for an over-the-shoulder vantage point, which even highlighted its graceful curves.

The Importance of Writing
The greatest of wildlife photographers have almost always been chroniclers, who have maintained detailed journals. Take regular notes of your various encounters with the wild and study them.
