From Editor’s Desk
Friends, it’s been a satisfying year all through, because of regular and very interesting programmes. I thank my committee members for giving me support to organize some of the most memorable programmes/events. Likewise, the whole month of July is bombarded with lively programmes for the members. It’s been a continuous learning for substantial number of members through “OPEN HOUSE’, that we conduct on 2nd and 4th Saturdays. Nearly about 50 members are attending this learning and interaction sessions and getting benefited. The committee is more committed to such interactions to make learners master all aspects of Art of photography.
The July month, is planned in a such a way that, all Saturdays and Sundays are meant for members with various programmes, with very renowned lens men talking and sharing their photography techniques.
22nd and 23rd a workshop on outdoor portraiture, is not to be missed by anyone, for, we learn how to take simple and creative portraiture with available light. And on 31st evening, famous wildlife photographer Mr.Dhritiman Mukherjee, from Kolkata, who contributes to National Geographic and BBC, is showing his award-winning images, at YPS hall. Don’t miss any programmes, or else, you will regret later.
With best wishes,
H Satish, President, YPS Bangalore
