Nature Photography

After having taken immense interest in photojournalism, travel photography and pictorial photography, I tried my hand for nature photography so that I also enter my images in exhibitions of this category.

Human Interest

Recently there was a discussion in PSA’s  Study Group of Photojournalism that whether pets or animals fall in the category of Human Interest. In fact one of the members of the group had uploaded a picture depicting dogs in a car. One of us was of the view that in case of Human Interest, pets or animals are considered like humans, but it was clarified by the Administrator that the definition of Human Interest as given by the PSA does not include animals.
Similar is the case of this pic of horses interacting with eachother.

New Groups

Two new groups of photo enthusiasts celebrated World Photography Day in Chandigarh, my home town, this year by organizing exhibitions of the  works of their members and getting these inaugurated on this historic day. While Photo Artist Group of Chandigarh held the show at Punjab Kala Bhawan, the Chandigarh Fototography Club (CPC) had its show at the exhibition hall of Government Museum and Art Gallery. As I was invited by the CPC to share my experiences with its members, I made two Power Point presentations for the benefit of members of this new group on the last day of the three-day exhibition on August 21,2011.
                These two exhibitions aptly reflected the keen interest the members of these groups are taking in the art of photography.
