Children learn the art of photography at workshop


The Hindu Young World , as part of its 25th year celebrations, is conducting workshops and events.

On Sunday, a photography workshop was held at The Hindu office premises. Around 30 children had registered for the event that was a big success. It was conducted by V.V. Krishnan, chief photo editor, The Hindu.

“Sir, I took six photos of you!” One of the little ones had hollered in the midst of 30-odd young photographers. There were enthusiastic cheers and non-stop clicking as children from across the city had gathered for the workshop . Children were taught the nuances of photography.

“K-chik. K-chik. That’s about it,” said Mr. V.V. Krishnan, in an attempt to keep the children relaxed. And ‘k-chik, k-chik; it went for the next two and a half hours.

The children were asked to bring their own camera. While some had brought simple point-and-shoots to the workshop, others showed off their DSLRs.

The children were taken around premises and given the chance to take pictures and experiment with shots and light. Later they were shown how to enhance their photographs with better lighting and colours.

“I found the workshop really interesting, ” said Prasanthi Bala, one of the participants. “I had a good time.”
