From Editor’s Desk
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.
