Introduction to Deep Sky Astrophotography

YPS Saturday Online Meet | Nov 12, Sat | 5:30 PM IST | S2 E6

Astrophotography of deep sky objects is one of the most challenging and rewarding branches of photography. As is the case in many other forms of photography, it is not just the pictures you get at the end of the day (end of night in this case!). The whole experience of spending long hours under star studded skies and collecting photons arriving from thousands and millions of light years away has no parallel. It has created a lot of interest in India among astronomy enthusiasts as well as photography hobbyists in the last few years. This session is an introduction to this fascinating field that presents endless possibilities. As the cliché goes, this is a discipline where sky is the limit. Or should we say, even sky is not the limit!

ದೇವಾಲಯಗಳ ಪರಿಕಲ್ಪನೆ ಮೂಡಿದಾಗಿನಿಂದ ಇಂದಿನವರೆಗೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ದೇವಾಲಯಗಳ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣ, ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆ, ಶಿಲ್ಪಕಲೆ ಮೊದಲಾದವು ಬೆಳೆದುಬಂದ ಬಗೆ ಅಚ್ಚರಿಮೂಡಿಸುವಂತಹುದು. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ವಿವಿಧ ಪ್ರದೇಶಗಳಲ್ಲಿರುವ ದೇಗುಲಗಳ ಸ್ವರೂಪ, ಕಟ್ಟಡ, ಶಿಲ್ಪಕಲಾವೈವಿಧ್ಯಗಳು ಇಡೀ ಜಗತ್ತಿನಲ್ಲೇ ಇಂತಹ ಯಾವುದೇ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣಕ್ಕೂ ಸರಿಸಾಟಿಯೆನ್ನಬಹುದಾದ ವೈಭವವನ್ನು ಪ್ರದರ್ಶಿಸುತ್ತಿವೆ. ಆದರೆ, ಬಾದಾಮಿ, ಪಟ್ಟದಕಲ್ಲು, ಹಳೇಬೀಡು, ಬೇಲೂರುಗಳಂಥ ಕೆಲವು ಸ್ಥಳಗಳನ್ನು ಹೊರತುಪಡಿಸಿದಂತೆ ಬಹುತೇಕ ದೇವಾಲಯಗಳು ಅಜ್ಞಾತವಾಗಿಯೇ ಉಳಿದಿದ್ದು ಅಲಕ್ಷ್ಯಅನಾದರಗಳಿಗೆ ಗುರಿಯಾಗಿವೆ. ನಮ್ಮ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯ ವೈಭವದ ಪ್ರತೀಕಗಳಾಗಿರುವ ಈ ದೇವಾಲಯಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂರಕ್ಷಿಸಿ, ಪರಿಚಯಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದರ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಮುಂದಿನ ಪೀಳಿಗೆಗಾಗಿ ಇವನ್ನು ರಕ್ಷಿಸಿಡುವುದರ ಕಡೆಗೆ ಜನಜಾಗೃತಿ ಮೂಡಿಸುವುದು ಇಂದಿನ ಆದ್ಯ ಕರ್ತವ್ಯವಾಗಿದೆ.

YPS Saturday Meet – Zanskar – A Photographer’s Paradise

YPS Saturday Meet | Oct 15, Sat | 3:30 PM IST | Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath

Zanskar is a part of Ladakh that was overlooked by travellers and photographers due to its inaccessibility. With new roads opening up, it has opened up a plethora of opportunities to visit places that could otherwise be accessible only by arduous and week-long treks. It has everything a photographer can wish for – landscapes, portraits, festivals and astrophotography opportunities. 

It is still quite untouched compared to the touristy Ladakh and is a must visit for anyone. Though the facilities are yet to be developed, it is still worth visiting.
