We have an open group of photo enthusiasts, primarily consisting of those who like to spend their leisure time pursuing their hobby. There are certainly those who are very experienced in this field and have spent good time in professional photography, they are the ones who are the owners or the mentors of the group. Then there are others who are more passionate and have photography as one of their hobby. The group is called the NCRPL.
This group is open and non-profit, with no fees charged and anyone can join who is a shutter bug. The primary aim is to share the knowledge around photography and to get together at events and learn from each other. We regularly organise photo walks on various topics related to photography or get together at some place to capture some shots, mostly on Sunday’s and when it is on some special aspect someone leads the talks related to the specs like lenses, aperture, ISO, location, etc… Alas! I was unable to attend today’s event 😦 – It was on taking and creating panorama.
Above all it gives an opportunity for like minded people to get together for a common passion of photography and brush aside the regular hustle of life.
Photography as a passion is quickly catching up in India with more and more young people getting hooked to it and moreover it is a bigger delight to see that a lot of women are part of it now as it is really challenging in India and this change is something big when it comes to liberation and freedom – kudos to them and all who help them out in this.
Further there is a lot of change in perception towards photography, now people are arranging and paying out for pre-wedding shoots, new born shoots etc. and I believe it is a must to preserve quality moments. Imagine when you enjoy the pro shots some 20 years later, what a feeling it would be. In fact the day I was attending this event which I will mention below a pre-maternity shot was in progress.
A lot of talking, now coming back to the post, last week 12th June we had a photo walk on kids portrait photography at Lodhi Garden in New Delhi the early hours, it is vast spread garden with greenery and some old monument and is flocked by morning walkers and yoga persons. It was a great experience to click the kids and capture their cuteness and love. My daughter also participated in the event as one to volunteer as a kid model.
Here goes the photographs from the event, I hope you all will love it.
