The YPS Saturday Meet – Mundane to Magnificent

December 12, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Saturday Meet | Dec 12, Sat | 5:30 PM IST | Google Meet

“Mundane to Magnificent” –  A presentation focusing on how Mr. Ananth Kamat photographed mundane objects around him, such as utensils, daily groceries, and turned them into art.

About the Speaker:

Ananth Kamat Profile Picture

Mr Ananth Kamat AFIP is a Software Engineer by profession, and based in Bangalore. Being just a ‘Guy-with-a-DSLR’, he was mesmerized by the Macro works of his colleague Mr. Raviprakash SS (NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014), and started pursuing Macro photography. In 2018, he was introduced to Youth Photographic Society through a Social Media post, and immediately joined the group. With the support and mentorship of YPS Macro Photography enthusiasts, he started learning about biodiversity and experimented with lights, angles and started upskilling himself, and also was introduced to the world of Salons. Since then, he has won multiple awards and acceptances in National and International Salons, and received his AFIP distinction in 2020.

An avid traveler, who has visited nearly 8 countries for photography, Mr. Ananth had to pause with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. With literally no access to the green covers of Bangalore, the scope for Macro photography also stopped. Being homebound for months, he started noticing the ordinary things around him and started photographing them.

This presentation focuses on how he found these easily accessible objects at home like utensils, stationary, vegetables and fruits etc. and photographed them with a basic APS-C Camera.
