Photography for me has never been about the apertures or shutter speeds or the ISOs.... its about a moment, an expression, a memory, a place, an emotion... Over the last few years, this thought has only deepened with encouragement from people who view my work and appreciate my thoughts !!!

"The man who taught me to appreciate Black and White Photography- Thats Prashant or PB for me. He is one among the very few photogs whose feedback matters. One of the few whose work has left me spellbound and inspired. If today I shoot BW flowers its because I feel in love with PB's BW Flowers...they r so inspiring !
His images are reflection of his soul- simple yet enduring.
Fantabulous PB !
Do continue to inspire by your work and your goodness... God Bless You always !"

"The King of Black and White, Emperor when it come of capturing expression. I guess being a grounded person makes him see the smaller beauties of this world and being an avid traveler makes him present at right places at right time. Everyone of his shot amazes me and the words add charm to them. No wonder he is in top 5 people on Flickr i follow religiously and 3rd person am writing testimonial for.
A good human being and A true inspiration. On any given day even after years of journey, I will always give a big credit of me getting hooked to photography to him.
Buddy, You rocks as always....Keep showing us the world like no one else does."

"uhhh.......what can I say about prashant......he is awesome.....his passion for photography is amazing.......love the creative way he clicks......."

"Well, its been ages since i thought of writing a testimonial for Prashant, infact he was the only one for whom i could write one. His gallery is amazing; just enter his space and one can comfortably sprawl around. Each and every photograph speak volumes and the notes and thoughts gives it a form. I am sure Prashant is an inspiration for a lot of people on flickr and myself being one of them.
It gives me immense joy when i look at his work and probably thats his achievement. Simple photographs yet so much to say and share. The "true joy of photography" is reflected in every frame.
I believe that a photograph is a reflection of a photographer.....
Thanks for sharing your world with us Prashant."

"I have always admired his work, especially his b&w compositions, after getting motivated from his photo stream I've decided to do some b&w people photography as well, and soon I'll be uploading some that sort of wonderful work, I've always believed that its the vision behind the viewfinder, that makes a picture to look good, and he has proved it...
You can see the life, and can make out the complete story from his pictures, i am looking forward to shot some pictures like him, may be some day i'll.
you rock bro....!!"

"Whatever he ventures into …it always clicks!
Om is a brilliant photographer because he is a brilliant human being and hence capturing life comes naturally to him. He has the eye to observe and portray his subjects in a unique manner.
There are so many of his photographs that I can relate with."
