Interested In Mobile Photography? You Can Win In Kolkata


Kolkata: A ‘photography festival’ has been organised at the Mohorkunj area. A participant should have a good quality phone along with nice features. The person should also know the language of photography. This is the first time that the city of joy is witnessing a photography fair where the ‘photography charcha’ has taken the initiative to encourage the mobile photographers.The ‘Photography Charcha’ organisation has provided the Mohorkunj area for the fair from November 27 to December 2 this year. The organisation’s head Arup Sadhu said, “I do not think that one does not always need a camera for photography. This logic no more works in the era of digitisation. Photgraphy can also be done using a mobile. There has to be the love and urge for taking pictures. By having only this, mobile photography can be done.”

Nowadays several people buy phones by seeing its features. Users give priority to those mobiles which have good battery backup and a good camera. Based on this demand, the mobile manufacturers also make the features. Arup also said, “Everyone cannot buy expensive cameras but have a knack for taking pictures. One can see a frame in front, but cannot do anything. By buying mobile phones having high-pixel camera, one is accomplishing their wishes. Nowadays, they are giving lenses in their mobiles too. Hence, that time is gone when one had to buy an expensive camera to do photography.”

Arup further stated, “One has to know the language of photography too. He/she must know how to speak the language too. If it is possible to speak in that language, then finding frame through a mobile is also possible. For this, till 2nd, people can participate by taking pictures in their mobiles. We will reward the best picture.”
