Abbas Baig, aka Abby, my college friend who used to get yelled by professors for being the master of his own will, has now his photographs, yelling stories of different people and places. He listened to his heart and followed his passion and few months’ back he got the chance to judge the photography contest “Prastuti” held in our own college. His work and story has been featured in various Indian and International magazines like Inspiro India magazine, Chiiz magazine, Asian photography and some other eminent digital platforms. He has won many street and travel photography contests.
Now he is the mentor of two well-renowned photography groups, one is the International Street Photography group named "Urban Street Photography" and other one is one of the finest photography group over Instagram and Facebook named "DSLR". He says “My simple funda(fundamental) is to bring out emotions from every element that comes in the scope of my camera lens”.

#4 Rang Yudh (Battle Of Colors)
Rang Yudh means "Battle of Colors". The first shot from Nandgaon temple, I reached Nandgaon at 12 pm.. wanted to shoot streets of village but I had to take my position on rooftop because once you're late or don't reach there at time, you can't even stand there properly. I reached at top nearly 1 pm and after so many hurdles finally I got a little space where I could sit and shoot, though view from that place wasn't so appropriate but that was the only space I could get so i sat there and kept waiting for almost 4 hours to start "SAMAJ SANKIRTAN". Nearly 5 pm it began and I kept shooting from there only. This is how they start and it's very first shot I clicked there. ~ Abbas Baig
