Hi There! I am MacNeil .E. Fernandes, born in the magical decade-the 80’s in Bombay, India. I currently live in San Francisco, California and spend time in Mumbai and San Francisco.
Welcome to My Website
You can find some of my personal photos and projects here, as well as travel photos of the places I’ve been to; a blog with snapshots of my life, people that I have met, things that interest me, some of my ideas, basically a mixed bag. I hope you’ll enjoy the mix.
In April 2008 I started with photography, I treated myself by getting a Nikon DSLR – D80 with a 18-200mm VR1 Nikon lens and I’ve been taking pictures ever since. I love to experiment and try out new techniques. I’ve tried my hands at digital, 35mm film photography, Black and White film photography (which I love), medium format film photography and I develop my own black and white prints. There’s something new to learn every time I go photographing, be it a new composition to a new way to use available light.
Being self-taught helped me learn some valuable lessons the painful, hard, torturous way and therefore, guaranteed that I never forget them. Learning never ends and I am always trying to improve myself and get good results so as to deliver the best quality in what I do.
In addition I also shoot black and white film and develop and print my own prints.

The first camera I’ve ever used was my dad’s Yashica Rangefinder. When it comes to DSLR’s I usually shoot with Nikon cameras and lenses. The only non-Nikon DSLR lens I ever owned was a Sigma 10-20mm. However when it comes to point and shoot camera’s its always been Canon or Panasonic.
