Our Journey

Shadows Galore started as a photo-blog on blogspot to fulfill the requirements of a photography competition sometime in 2010. After more than one year of hibernation, we revived it again on 24th June 2011 and started including travelogues along with the photographs we were clicking from our newly purchased cameras. This continued till we felt the need to expand further and migrated to our own self hosted platform. Slowly we started expanding the scope and added our own learning from photography, snippets from our passion for cinema and books. What you see currently is Shadows Galore 4.0, based on a powerful platform to give strength to our wings.
