Tulihal Battalion of 9 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of HQ IGAR (South) organised a photography workshop for the students of Pole Star School, Patsoi, Imphal West District on 19th Aug 2019.
The workshop was aimed to provide a platform to children, to have an insight into the basics of photography and interact directly with renowned professionals in the photography field.
The Battalion organized the photography workshop by getting a renowned professional photographer namely, Mr Rajesh. The photographer not only explained and taught the basic nuances of photography but also shared his own real-life experiences while learning photography.
The photographer covered an introduction to photography, its application, basics of camera operations, basic composition, rules including framing and camera angles. Mr Rajesh shared his insights on choosing a camera, lighting aspects, controlling shutter speed and exposure and various photographic functions. Though cautious about handling the cameras, the students had a good time experimenting and then posing with the various cameras.
Learning photography is a never-ending process. From acquiring a new camera and going out for a shoot for the first time, the experience, and the photographs ensure that this is a hobby that gets really addictive. More than 120 students who underwent the photography workshop were delighted with the whole experience which made them more confident, inspired and motivated. They expressed their gratitude to the unit for organising the workshop at their school. This initiative of Assam Rifles not only encouraged students to take it up photography as a hobby but also motivated them to take it up as a profession.
