The month of August being, Shraavana masa, an auspicious month for Hindus, was also auspicious for photographers as well, due to World Photography Day celebrated very grandly on 20th and 21st August 2016.
We are also having fantastic programmes for all of you enthusiastic members with a variety of workshops and outings. When YPS was in bad shape for some time, members were complaining of lack of programmes, workshops and activities. Now the present committee is striving hard to organize quality programmes for the benefit of its members. It is for you to utilize it properly and attend these programmes to gain photographic knowledge. There are immense learning opportunities for all of you.
An 8-member group is attending Desert Photography Workshop at Jaisalmer from 8th to 17th Sept 2016. Those who have missed don’t get disheartened since there is another opportunity waiting for you. The Federation of Indian Photography Convention is scheduled for 9 to 11 December 2016 in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Check their website and plan well in advance to assure your participation.

YPS Corporate Membership has been renewed with FIP.
The month of June was very interesting with active participation of serious members. The announcement of two programmes on Macro photography and Pictorial photography attracted large number of photographers, and it was difficult for us to provide proper seating for all of them. Sorry members for any inconvenience caused to you. We met the Jt. Director of State Youth Services and had a good discussion. We requested them to provide us a bigger hall for some of the programmes where we expect more members. They have agreed as of now. Let’s pray for the good times ahead.
