You would not discover a single individual on the earth who does not love to take pictures. Be it in the wedding ceremony, a simple gathering or with friends or partners, the camera is always a ‘yes’ factor for one and all. Moreover, at times we come across people taking selfies, posting them on social media to draw likes and comments. Camera is in fact an easily accessible gadget now. You don’t have to purchase it separately, it is with all the smart phone(s) we carry with us all the times. Besides, with the booming of the ‘tech com’ world, photography has become an inseparable part of our life and surely we enjoy every bit of it.
Much to Unravel:
There is a least grain of doubt that this art has created a magic over the years. But it should also be borne in mind that ‘photography’ is not just about some fun and entertainment. The story of lens, aperture and shutter carries a profound significance in the accepted sense of term. The expressions like ‘creativity’, ‘ aesthetic sense’ and ‘technical knowhow ‘ are proportionately blended to cater a unique touch to the finished product. Moreover, an individual’s hard work, patience, dedication, discipline, devotion and perseverance matter a lot in this field. Once upon time ‘photography’ was a less popular factor, but at this very hour it is a passion for millions, no matter what the cost is! Gradually this passion transforms into a very lucrative profession where the person begins his or her true journey into the realm of this art of inspiration, interest, enjoyment and many more surprising ingredients!
A Separate and Unique Identity:
Getting acquainted with the world of news and journalism remains incomplete unless ‘photography’ is a part of the curriculum. You may find innumerable reporters, anchors but ‘good photographers’ is a rare factor even today! And therefore a need has raised its hood to create good photographers. Numerous institutes with the best faculty members have been set up to teach the course on this art at three different levels viz. certificate, diploma and post graduate diploma. The duration varies from six months to a max period of one and a half year! Admission is either in January or July. One has to keep a track so that one does not miss the bus! Both theory and practical aspects are equally emphasized to hone their skills. Outdoor campaigning for the shooting purposes is also on the list. On the successful completion of the programme(s), recognitions are received by the candidates.
Look Before You Leap:
Remember ‘Photography’ being a costly affair, you need to check your pockets before you take a huge leap! The course fees can extend even to a few lakhs, quite unreachable! Though the instalment facility is there, the money occupies the apex followed by the aspects of studying the course, training and placement. However, the attempt is on to make it a reachable factor among the truly interested candidates. And this something which can only be possible through scholarships!
Dreams never stop chasing us. But we ought to know the art of translating into reality. ‘One fine morning I wake up and want to do a course on photography’, this kind of mental set up won’t serve the purpose. You need to chalk out a plan properly; move logically and eventually set your goals of success! In the not too distant future the future of such technological based courses will have a high demand in the market. The pay packets will be simply awesome. Various categories like candid, food, fashion, wedding, wild and others will get a different dimension all together! The whole scenario will hopefully change to keep pace with the time. However, the one and only thing you need is to fan the flames of passion time and again and never douse it at any cost! KEEP GOING. GOOD WISHES!!
