Photography My Favourite Hobby
Photography is my favorite hobby.The aim of indulging such an
interest is sheer pleasure or relaxation.It refreshes the mind and
provides a welcome change from such dull and dreary routine of daily
life.I visited a few good libraries and read articles and magazines on
the subject of photography.Photography is quite expensive pastime and to
be a good photographer on needs a lot of training and guidance.So i
attended a few short courses to pursue my hobby.I also did an internship
with a reputed photographer.
To be a good photographer i have
to take all aspects into consideration. I have to look from all
directions to capture a picture. I have to decide which direction will
be the best.Color combination is also a very important factor.While
taking pictures of animals or birds a photographer has to wait for hours
it needs lots of patience. When i was snapping photos with my senior
photographer in a jungle i waited more than two hours to catch animals
in my camera.Finally i took very nice photographs of animals and
nature.It was an amazing experience for me.In recent times there are
very advanced cameras are available in the shops,its lenses are also
very useful.With the help of the lenses one can capture photos even if
from the far distance. There are some universities who started
special course on photography.People are looking as a career to this
subject.I think the best photograph i ever took was the one in which my
sister stood with her hands raised and her palms joined like a cup.The
moon is far in the background exactly over the raised palms.It seems as
if she is holding the moon in the palm of her hands. Anyone who sees
this photograph raves about it.
When my friends invited me for parties or weddings i took my camera along.If we happened to go for treks or hikes i was there,ever ready with my inevitable camera.I am particularly interested in capturing landscapes,especially during twilight. I then began experimenting with light and shadows,I would place a bowl of flowers on the table with a candle to illuminate it from one side.Then I would switch the lights off and click away from various angles with the flash of camera snapping off and on.
Photography has made my senses keen and my imagination sharp.I have developed a wonderful aesthetic sense.I have my albums of all these photographs.And when i really nothing to do i just leaf through the photo albums and a whole gamut of interesting reminiscences rush through my mind.
