So the point is you never get younger, but you become more wiser. To learn something new everyday is a “to do” list on my diary. I would like to say something about the Photography and I am just a beginner in this field. To me “a photo is a moment when a vivid and spectacular emotion at a moment is captured”. It stays eternal and for the rest of your life whenever you see the photo it has to kick your endorphins and lock into your receptor levels. It has to make you really very happy.

Most of us visit the saloon maybe once in a month, to spend the time until your turn awaits you grab a copy of the local magazine and check out the photos. These photos in the magazine may be anything from movies, music, automobiles, places and the big list of celebrities. We ruffle and shuffle, look at the pictures mumbling and jumbling until the barber man does his job but then there would be one such photo which will make you think  and wink about it. I am just picking out the journals or magazines in relation to the photo based on my experience. The photos are a very profound subject and to learn how to capture a photograph is very interesting and exhilirating experience.

Two days ago on Sunday i met my very old and good friend who studied with me in school. Mr Ganesh Iyer is an enterpreneur by nature and he some times socialises with hobbyists to do free sessions of photography. Saying so he invited me for the session and we headed to a botanical garden located in the heart of the Bangalore city, this Botanical garden was the versatile idea of the great man Hyder Ali. Hyder Ali the father of the erstwhile king Tippu Sultan, the place is very serene, calm and beautiful. At the heart of the city Lalbagh stands amid the chaos retaining its lovely posture with mother nature. I visited the Lalbagh after 15 years, what a shame to miss out on such a beautiful place. This was ignorance at its best, Anyways at the park we had around 50 enthusiasts waiting for Mr Ganesh for his free session of Photography. Ganesh Iyer started and delivered the seminar on photography with technical aspects of photography, he explained how to use the DSLR, he amazed one and all by his knowledge of photo capture. There were so many interesting things he pointed out, like if you vary the temperature in the options how the captured image would result, white balance, ISO, light control and since I am very limited here. It took me time to understand and absorb everything.

Until now I was of the option that the camera has no role to play in the Photo. I strongly believed that the moment is more precious, but now after attending the session I really want to go and grab a DSLR. Well its deep into the pockets and got to pinch, but there will be a day and I will get one of those. There was a short field walk where the hobbyists went on a rampage to click the photos. My friend took active interest in checking out their composition and also guided what has to be corrected. Until now I just clicked the photos with the process in mind that I have to capture the moment, but from now onwards I will focus on the details. What a better way to keep you occupied by learning about something as beautiful as this.

The highpoint is you meet so many budding photographers who quickly gel with you and get involved. A friendship earned so fast is a freindship which has to last. I enjoyed the day very much and will remember for a special thing. It took me to the Lalbagh after a long time and I look forward to take my family out there on a early morning sunday walk. I also want to add that while walking around a lake I happened to come across a very serious lady who was capturing a bird. Now I did not notice the bird and was walking right beside it, suddenly I became aware and looked at my right. A small bird was perched on the bamboo stalk, i thought the woman would be upset but the bird never flew and he was so gentle that after a while he offered me to take photos of him, take a look here. If you have some free time, take a closer look at the nature around you and learn something new to experience.
