We live in world of technology and in this age of technology, there is constant access to vast amounts of information. Our baskets of information overflow for noting and people get overwhelmed. But the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, what to feel, what to digest, and react to what goes on.

Portrait of the old man, I made in the last photography workshop in the high Himalayas. I know him for quite some time. I met him again in the kitchen of the local community place. As usual, he was busy with prayers. I saw a place and I thought it could be a good place to justify a photographer's need. Upon my request with a big smile, he was ready to move to the place where I wanted him to be. Though he was happy there, a little pinch within me as I disturbed him in prayer. And he continued to chant. I wanted to have his undisturbed portrait and here technology came to help me a lot.

- Eye Autofocus (Track eyes of a human even they are closed or under dark glasses)
- Silent Shooting mood (Absolutely Silent no shutter sound) 
.
Eye Autofocus allowed me to hold my focus on eyes and Silent Shooting helped me to become unnoticeable from clicking sound.
.
I shoot a lot of known or unknown people and eyes are the most important part of my portrait which I really don't want to miss or getting them to blur. And technology helps me make my images more realistic without disturbing people from their regular task and I'm still unnoticeable.
