I'm Siddhesh Kotavadekar, Audit executive by profession and a photographer by passion. I love to click landscapes, macro & wildlife. Before getting into photography I was into drawing & painting but i lost trace of it with time. After a gap of 5 years I decided to use the canvas of digital eye 'Camera' to persue my interests in art. In the early journey of my photography, I started with mobile photography and then moved to a DSLR eventually. I always like to travel & explore new places and store the memories in my digital eye.
