Our 35th featured photographer, is an artist that "sees and notices things" unlike any other! Dollia Sheombar (DolliaSH) from Rotterdam, the Netherlands is graced with an eye for composition out of the ordinary and an extraordinary ability with light and color! Dollia says:
"So many years, watching through the viewfinder has definitely changed my world view."

Something about me:
"My name is Dollia Sheombar and I'm from Rotterdam, in The Netherlands.
I have been living almost my whole life in The Netherlands, but my roots go back to India.
As an IT Professional I work for the government and large Dutch companies.

Among other things Photography has been my main hobby for a long time. My first memory of shooting is linked to the house of my parents where on the walls there were always a lot of photographs. As a kid I was fascinated by the fact that it is possible to "freeze" the moment of our lives forever. And that "freeze" factor was what really got me interested in photography.

I mainly photograph landscapes and cityscapes. I'm completely self taught in pretty much everything I do.

My biggest frustration right now is that I have very limited, well actually no time for my hobby. I really envy others that can plan days for shooting, something I would love to do too.

Going through my stream you will also discover that I'm a heavy Photoshop user, although I try to keep my images "real" as much as possible.

Cheers, Dollia Sheombar" :)

Dollia is an excellent photographer . Never seen a poor upload of him. He is also a very nice man, who is always willing to share his knowledge. That, I think, makes the man!

I can say that Dollia, apart of being a great photographer, he is a fantastic person because I had the luck of meeting him in a trip to Holland. He was really kind with me and I only keep good memories from this trip.
