Karthik82.com is the website of Karthik Abhirama Krishna from Hyderabad, India. I am an artist, photographer and Instagrammer, and if you want to get regular updates about what I am doing and to see my art and photography, the best place to do that is on Instagram.
Professionally, I work with TCS and take care of Campus Recruitment for the states of AP and Telangana.

Older Stuff [Written in 2012]
What you are seeing right now is the 2012 “reboot” of the website. This site has existed for a very long time – the ‘historic’ / archived version is here: http://historic.karthik82.com. The content there is preserved as-is, since I wrote the code for that myself. The present website runs on WordPress.
Most of my artwork is related to movies. My art is almost entirely traditional – I use pencil or pen on paper, scan or photograph the artwork and then edit in Photoshop Elements.
In November 2011, I gave a presentation at Pecha Kucha Night Hyderabad Volume 6, about my Movie Fan Artwork. You can watch the video below, it would give you a good idea about my art and the inspirations behind it.
Photography is a relatively newer hobby of mine. I used to take photos with the cameras on my mobile phones (in some situations, I still do – I have a Nokia N8 which has a very nice camera) till I bought my first DSLR in April 2011.
This is the photography gear I use:
- Canon EOS 550D
- Canon 18-55mm (kit) lens
- Canon 55-250mm lens
- Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens
- Canon Speedlite 580 EX II flash
I have a Sony VAIO E Series laptop on which I produce all the stuff that I post online (including this blog). The laptop came with Adobe Photoshop Elements 8, which I use for most of my image stuff, and Windows Movie Maker for video editing. I shoot video mostly with my N8 phone camera (it records video in 720p HD).
EDIT Jul-12: I upgraded my Nokia N8 phone to the new awesome Nokia 808 PureView device. I am very much enjoying taking photos with it and henceforth would use this for shooting video.
