Being Human makes you a Better Photographer!

We are very proud to share the story of our Alumni Mr.P.Ravikumar a Photojournalist who showed the world that it is important to be “HUMAN”. Here is the article from Reuters where he works as a freelance photojournalist.

We are indeed very happy to have been a part of his journey to be a News Photographer.


P. Ravikumar


By P. Ravikumar

CHENNAI (Reuters) – It all happened in a flash. Barely 10 minutes after reaching a public gathering that was held in a large tent to celebrate the Indian festival of Holi, I was performing CPR on a boy who had suddenly collapsed in a makeshift pool of coloured water.

I am a freelance photographer in the southern city of Chennai and was on assignment for Reuters on Thursday, looking for pictures of revellers celebrating the festival that marks the beginning of spring and in which people smear each other with coloured powder and water.

For a photographer, Holi makes for vibrant, colourful pictures.

There were an estimated 1,000 people at the place I went to, almost all of them youngsters, and I started clicking away from a platform where a singer was belting out Hindi dance numbers. Moments later there was a commotion, and suddenly I was confronted by a boy who seemed to have stopped breathing.

I quickly handed my cameras to a fellow photographer, sat down on my knees and lifted one of the eyelids of the boy who lay motionless on his back. The eye was pale, his body stone cold.

I immediately recognised I did not have much time, and started pressing his chest, 30 times at a go, followed by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Egged on by my friends, I kept at it for four to five minutes and then finally he started to move his eyes, slowly.

Then his hands shook. He vomited water, then blood. Somebody took him to the hospital in an autorickshaw, instead of waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

I was completely exhausted by then, and later came to know he was discharged within a few hours. Somebody gave me his mother’s phone number, I called her and she said he was okay.

It’s not yet clear how the boy fainted in the knee-deep water, where many other people were singing and dancing.

But the whole incident was surreal. Only a couple of months ago I lost my 76-year-old mother, who had a breathing problem, despite me and my sister doing CPR while taking her to hospital.

The incident reinforced my belief that learning basic life-saving skills should be made mandatory for everybody. I learned during an assignment two-and-a-half-years ago covering a sparsely attended CPR demo organised by a non-governmental organisation at a Chennai mall.

My pictures of trying to revive the boy have made it to newspapers and TV news channels, and my phone has been ringing constantly.

The Times of India, the New Indian Express and the Hindu newspapers all hailed my “presence of mind”.

A news photographer has become the news, and I feel good about that. But, for me, the biggest joy is that I managed to save a family from the grief of losing a young son.

And yes, Reuters did use some of my pictures from the event clicked before the incident!

Have you ever tried a Magic filter – CPL filter..?

Have you ever tried a Magic filter – CPL filter..?

The Circular Polarizing filter (CPL) is a magical filter that does wonders in photography.
1. The polarizing filter will remove/reduce the unwanted reflections created by indirect diffused light from non-metallic surfaces. It cannot remove/reduce the specular reflections created by the direct light sources.
2. CPL filter is a dark grey special optical filter fitted on to a rotatable ring mounted in front of the lens.
3. CPL lets in the polarized light without reflections to enter into the camera. The effect of polarization can be seen apparently in the viewfinder as you rotate the CPL filter. The overall subject gains better colour saturation and clarity gradually and becomes best at one point of rotation
4. CPL filter can saturate the green foliage and blue sky while shooting nature and landscapes.
5. The amount of colour saturation and clarity obtained depends on the light direction and time of the day.
6. CPL filter polarizing effect will be ultimate in ‘sidelight’ conditions and will be the least in ‘against the light’ conditions.
7. It will be better during the golden hours of photography (up to two hours from the Sunrise and two hours till Sunset).
8. CPL filter comfortably removes the reflections on the glass, tiles, shiny floors, shiny furniture, wet surfaces, water and almost anything that reflects. Useful for shooting exteriors & interiors, glass enclosures, high reflective products like automobiles etc.
9. Being dark grey, the CPL filter will absorb at least two to three stops light. This will result in using slow shutter speeds or higher ISOs or open apertures or all the three.
10. CPL filter can also be used like an ND (Neutral Density) filter for achieving shallow depth of field/ blurring effects.
11. CPL filters can also be used in the indoors with artificial lights and studio flashes.
12. Only a very ‘good quality CPL filter’ can protect the optical quality of your expensive lens – never settle for anything less.
