The Hindu -Savithri Photo House summer photography camp for children in classes 6 – 12 got underway at the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University on Wednesday.

Enjoy

Inaugurating the camp, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic and Law and Order, Pravesh Kumar told the students that first they should have fun and enjoy at the camp and try to learn a few tips from the trainer at the same time.

The few tips that they would learn in the next three days at the camp would help them stand out.

The students should click pictures in such a way that they were able to transfer to the viewers what they perceived in the picture. And their pictures should have meanings.

Important

Photography was a hobby or pursuit where imagination was important. “The more imaginative they are, the more they will be able to click better pictures.”

T.A. Natarajan, advertising photographer, said that he looked forward to working with the children in the camp.

N.N. Parasram of Savithri Photo House said that his establishment was happy to be associated with The Hindu in conducting the camp for the fifth year.

Suggesting that taking to photography could be a better way to beat the stress that students experienced in their academic pursuit, he asked the students to make good use of the camp.

Photography was not aiming and shooting, it was more about composing, lighting, framing, etc., he told the students and asked them to learn as much as possible from Mr. Natarajan.

Senior Regional General Manager, The Hindu , Coimbatore, P. Subramaniam suggested that photography was also a good career option for the students.

Seventy-two students participated in the camp, which would go on till May 11.
