About

Software Engineer, Occasional Photographer, Thinker & Tinkerer

Hi, I am Macneil Fernandes.
I write code & I love photography. You can find some of my projects and photography, as well as snapshots of my life, things that interest me, projects I have worked on, ideas that I am working on, basically a mixed bag. I hope you’ll enjoy the mix.

Professional

I’ve been programming since High School, starting with BASIC and then learning C, C++, Java and other languages after.I have been designing and developing banking information systems for more than 10 years. I have recently started working on bringing my ideas to life on mobile platforms.

Photography

In April 2008, 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 and medium format film photography.
I sometimes 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.

If there is anything more you want to know about me, just ask!
