No matter which part of the globe people live at, photography has always been a passion for most of the people. For some, it is just a hobby while others get addicted over it and develop themselves into professionals. People who have no knowledge in photography think that it needs just a single click over the button to take a photo. But the real fact is it doesn’t sound easy as just clicking a button. Also, it is not enough to just buy a digital camera to get great pictures.
If you want to get a lively picture that catches others eye, you should know complete information about photography so that you can deliver the best. One can raise too many questions regarding the art form of photography. Similar like the answer given to other arts, for this also it is said clearly that if you have true passion over it, you can achieve your desired level easily. At times, you may be got mesmerized with some pictures and appreciate the work and ability of the photographers. Basically, it is considered by unknowledgeable people as those pictures are delivered with the support of cameras but it is just a wrong assumption. The image that mesmerized you may look simple but basically it is a big deal for unpracticed or inexperienced picture taker to deliver the same result even with the support of advanced cameras.
The outcome completely depends on the efficiency of the photo takers instead of camera standards. Camera is just an instrument to snap the images, as time and technology has advanced well; the instrument has advanced itself with improved features. Yet, at the end, only the talent of photographers values the most than the camera quality. Without proper learning, it is not easy for anyone to catch stunning pictures through their cameras. Go forward and take up coaching classes to develop your passion into profession.

It was an exiting conceptual photo shoot. I was demonstrating our BTEC learners few ideas to show the slap shot / stand up entertainers of ‘EVAM’ funny in the photos. The whole day entertaining, I tried using few unusual lenses normally used for location shoot, for this session to shoot people.
My student, Sameer Singh who is also a stage performer, developed the concept of the shoot. I decided to introduce a lot of intentional distortions to show the expressions funny. As a break through idea, I decided to use 16mm and 20mm lenses for this concept. Though some of the images are really scary, it established the concept of promoting entertaining comedians. The extended depth of field and lens distortions are the highlights of the concept.
The performing artists, Arvind, Bargav and Alex delivered a lot of actions to establish visual impact through funny body and face expressions. The lighting tried was also very unusual (some times hard bottom lights) to match the theme and purpose. I tried including a ‘microphone’ in most of the shots to justify that the people involved in the pictures are connected to stage performances.
The Diploma in Photography learners of Ambitions 4 Photography Academy understood that it is not always necessary to use soft lights, long tele-zoom lenses and maintain shallow depth of field to shoot portraits. It was a real-time learning for the budding professional photographers.
